P360 Nutrition: 3 Easy Ways to Get More Protein In Your Diet Right Now
Increasing your protein intake is the #1 thing you can do to improve your results. By far. Not even close.
Combined with an effective strength training program – the more protein you eat, the more your body will build and retain lean body mass, which is responsible for increasing your energy expenditure and reducing fat stores.
How Much Protein Do I Need?
Here is a simple calculation to get you started towards a base level of optimal protein intake.
Your Bodyweight in Pounds
(i.e. 150 pounds)
Optimal Daily Protein Intake in Grams
(i.e. 150 x 0.75 = 112 grams of protein
Now, let’s go over three very simple ways you can start increasing this week.
1. Batch Prepare Food
Get comfortable with the idea of re-heating foods. If you are always dependent on preparing a fresh meal, then you will fall victim to lack of time and energy. Make 2-3 large protein servings each week. You’ll save time and be less inclined to waste = accountability to more protein.
2. Drink Your Protein
The most effective way to easily double your intake. A single serving protein shake carries as much as 30g of protein. (Some brands we like are Gnarly and VegaOne.)
Protein powder, fruit, milk choice. Boom.
3. Frozen Foods
The quality of frozen foods has dramatically increased and can be a great strategy for those on-the-go who hate cooking. Trader Joe’s, Costco, and Whole Foods all have excellent choices of frozen proteins that can be stored for longer and prepared quickly.
Simple, effective, and easy for any lifestyle to start implementing right away.
