Eat More Protein.
Do you want to eat in a way that supports what you do in the gym 💪🏼or on the field⚾️?
The number one piece of nutrition advice that I give to almost every athlete/active individual I encounter is to eat 3-5 meals per day and center each around 20-40 grams of protein.
Protein helps to fuel, build, maintain, and repair muscle, supports many body processes, and increases satiety between meals.
What does 20-40 grams of protein look like?
Well, it’s a bit more protein than the ONE egg (6-7g) or egg white (4-5g) some have at breakfast.
4-8🥚egg whites or 3-6 eggs
4-6 oz 🍗lean protein (white fish, chicken, lean ground meat)
1-2 scoops🥤 whey protein
1.5-2.5 oz beef jerky
(Jerky Pro Tip: read the ingredients label to find jerky without sugar/corn syrup. I’ve had the best luck on Amazon)
After you have your protein, add veggies🥗 then carbs🍚 and/or a dash of fat🥜
Eating for success!
