Please follow @bodybuilding.tricks for more great content!!?? Protein is such a huge player in fat loss. It is key in maintaining muscle mass while you lose fat.

If you are new to the protein game, it can seem daunting to get in enough protein, but let’s talk about it. It’s not as hard as you might think.

First, How much protein should you eat?

Goal Bodyweight (in lbs.) x 1 = Protein grams to aim for daily

Aim for it. You may not hit it every day, but that’s OK. It’s all about becoming aware of protein throughout the day. –
Now, how can you reach your protein goal? Here are a few tips:

Increase the portion sizes of what you already are eating. Make 4 ounces of chicken 5. Make 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, 1 cup.

Plan all of your meals around your protein choice. Making protein the focus of your meal will help ensure you are getting an adequate amount in at every meal.

Think about protein based snacks. Tuna Packets, Greek Yogurt and Hardboiled Eggs are all great protein based snacks.

Try to cook your protein ahead of time. Even cook it in bulk for the week. Not only will your life become way easier, but you will have your protein already cooked and ready to go. Meal planning made easy.

Use convenient options. And there are a bunch. Some of my go-to’s? Liquid egg whites, pre-cooked chicken, and single serve cottage cheese and greek yogurts. Life will become way less complicated.

Use a protein powder if needed. Look, protein powder is a supplement, which by definition means “in addition to”. It’s not intended to replace real whole food. Your best bet is always to get your protein from food. But that may not always be possible, so when it’s not, don’t be afraid to use some protein powder. Find one that you like the taste of and that can fit your budget, and you could make a shake, add protein powder to oats (<— I love this), or Greek Yogurt. You can be creative with this! - Protein is like the silver bullet for fat loss. Make it a priority with your meal planning. Pretty soon, like anything else you practice, it becomes easier to include in your daily meals and snacks, and that muscle you have built u
