Lean Protein

Protein has been shown to help you feel full longer, so you end up eating less throughout the day. In addition, protein provides your body with the building blocks to create muscle during workouts. Since your muscles burn calories even while you’re at rest, the more muscle you have, the more calories you burn.

Weight training is an excellent way to build those muscles and lose the flab. Did you know, muscle weights twice as much as fat?

Recently I have been buying local organic chicken, lamb, pork, beef and eggs. They actually taste healthier than store bought and do not contain steroids, antibiotics, coloring or preservatives. These products have been proven to have less saturated fat due to the animal or bird’s lean diets and therefore are a healthier choice.

Red meat is the best way to get B12, essential for nervous system development and rejuvenation. The best place to connect with a local organic farmer is at your farmers market usually held in most areas, on Saturdays.
