This year has been super crazy and stressful. Now add in the holidays and you may be finding yourself in a downward spiral.
This can cause you to start overeating and putting your self care on the back burner.
It may start with missing workouts and then also not cooking your meals because you don’t have the time to get to everything. You find yourself choosing to get your other things on the to-do list done and neglecting yourself.
This is something we all deal with. Don’t let the quilt get to you.
Adding the right amount of macronutrients (carbs, fats, and protein) to your diet is crucial to helping you reach your goals outside of working out.
It’s too hard to look and feel your best when you are not fueling your body with the fuel it needs.
Most people I speak with do not get enough grams of protein throughout their day. On the other end they end up taking in too many carbs and fats to fill up and satisfy cravings.
While all three macronutrients are needed for a healthy diet, balance is important. Especially during the holidays, but I know it can be tricky to stay on track. Family gatherings, friends getting together and not to mention the many deserts that will be lurking around the corner.
The easiest way to boost your protein is to utilize using a low sugar protein powder. Adding protein powder into your daily routine will help you stay full longer, build lean muscles, and boost your metabolism.
I recommend to my clients to get .8-1 gram of protein per pound of your goal weight. So for example, if your ideal weight is 145 pounds then do your best to get in 145 grams of protein per day. Protein helps you feel full. Make sure you get protein at each meal.
This makes it easier to gain lean muscle and burn fat. During the holidays, this is just what you need to make sure you are still crushing your goals rather than putting on the holiday 10 pound gain.
