“What to Eat to Burn Fat, Lose Weight, and Build Muscle”*
I believe that perfect meal starts off first thing in the morning and has a combination of natural protein, healthy fat, fiber, and anti-oxidants. In this article I will give you a recipe for a superfood shake that tastes amazing and is super nutritious!
People often ask how I can eat healthy when I have a schedule packed with meetings, traveling, and speaking? I think people ask because everyone has a busy life today. So I want to talk about my secret meal that gives me energy and helps me sculpt a body that is healthy inside and outside.
I really believe in the age-old saying that “breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” For adults and children it is vitally important that you are consuming a meal that is high in protein and healthy fat.
Most Americans opt for a breakfast loaded with carbohydrates like cereal, bagels, muffins, toast, donuts, and pastries. These foods can make a perfect meal if you’re trying to gain weight and want to have NO energy all day.
If you want to feel great all day, balance your blood sugar levels to increase focus, and burn fat at the same time you MUST make sure you are getting enough protein early in the day!*
According to Mayo Clinic researcher, Jan van Deursen, Ph. D. consuming the right kinds of protein is critical for energy, anti-aging, burning fat, and building muscle.
Proteins are known as the building blocks for the body. Proteins are long chains of amino acids that are bonded together with peptides. There are 20 different amino acids and each are unique in how they support the body
Vital organs, muscles, tissues and even some hormones are made from proteins. Protein will aid the body in digestion, muscle tone, sleep, eyesight, skin health, wound healing and fighting off bad bacteria.*
Also, this is surprising to some people, but protein can help you raise your bodies most powerful anti-oxidant Glutathione! Glutathione is different from other antioxidants because it is actually inside your cells and can’t help you detox at a cellular level!*
However it appears that take glutathione in supplement form isn’t near as powerful as taking it in food form like in the source of organic protein.
With protein being so vital health you must ask the question are you getting enough protein and are you getting the right kind of proteins?
There are many places you can get protein into your diet, some are better than others. I think you should vary your protein and get a variety. For instance, I typically consume Sprouted Brown Rice Protein and/or Free-Range Eggs for breakfast, Organic Chicken and Nuts for lunch, and Grass-fed Beef or Salmon for dinner. I believe the best sources of protein are these:
- Grass-fed beef
- Organic chicken
- Free-range eggs
- Wild salmon
- Raw dairy
- Sprouted nuts
- Sprouted grains.
If you want to age slower, get stronger, and look more fit, the amount of protein you ingest is crucial.* For most people looking to burn fat and lose weight I recommend you take your body weight in pounds, multiply it by .75 and consume that amount of protein daily.*
For example 160lbs x .75 = 120g of protein, so if you’re eating 4x daily consume 30g of protein 4x a day.* However if you are trying to build muscle I suggest you up the ratio from .75 to 1-1.25.* According to these ratios, are you getting enough protein to reach your health goals?
For some people it would seem difficult to consume that much meat daily to hit protein recommendations and in that case I recommend using a RAW Organic Protein Powder.*
I often get asked what my favorite type of protein powder is RAW Protein by Garden of Life. Raw Protein combines Sprouted Brown Rice Protein, Quinoa, Flax, and Chia protein to create the world’s most absorbable protein powder.*
Raw Protein is USDA certified Organic and Dairy and Gluten Free. Raw Protein provides the highest quality plant based protein plus Live probiotics, enzymes, fat soluble vitamins A, D, E, K, SOD, and CoQ10.
There really is no other protein powder like it in the world.*
Over 90% of other protein powders on the market are more harmful than helpful.* They are made from isolated denatured proteins like whey and soy and also contain artificial sweeteners that are not just dangerous but deadly.*
A good friend of mine, Chris, ate a conventional body builder diet and eventually won the Mr. America bodybuilding competition. He was on top of the world but then a few months later had bleeding in his stool, lost 40 lbs, and was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis.
His condition worsened and his doctor wanted to put him on steroids and eventually remove his intestines. He then met a man named Jordan Rubin and began following a diet called The Makers Diet. After a few months his body was healed and health restored.*
But what caused his ulcerative colitis in the first place? All of the fake protein powders he was consuming.* The helped build muscle on the outside but destroyed his body on the inside because he was consumed denatured whey protein.*
It’s stories like this that has put me on a mission to make sure ALL of my readers only consume REAL food and only the highest quality Whole Food Based Supplements.* So please, if you have any protein powders at home that aren’t certified organic and sprouted I urge you to throw them out.*
