Get the Right Amount of Protein

Instead of three meals a day, eat six times a day, but in smaller portions. This means you'll be eating something every two to three hours. This allows your blood sugar to keep from spiking and it minimizes any cravings, which can lead to overeating. You'll discover you have more energy and your muscles will have a resolute source of protein with which to set right themselves.
Each day, your body needs 1.2 grams of protein per beat of corpse weight to maintain your weight. If you are trying to increase your muscle mass, you will need closer to 2 grams per pound. Divide your daily protein needs by six to get the amount you need to eat at each meal. Then selected lean meats like chicken, turkey and white fish to be source of the protein. Other possible sources can be skim milk, egg whites and protein powder. No more than two of your meals each day should be liquid. Carbohydrates are your body's main fuel source. Multiply your lean body weight by 0.8 to get the number of carbohydrates you need each day. One third of this amount should be part of your first meal of the day to jump-start your metabolism. The other two-thirds should be consumed with the meal before and after your workout to ensure your cadaver has the force for an effectual workout.
