Well… It’s that time of the year again. With 2016 coming to a close, building muscle and concurrent fat loss is on just about everyone’s mind.

Okay.

I’m not a dietician or nutrition expert nor do I market myself as one, but I do want to highlight why most people fall short in their attempt to get results.

Eat More Protein

 

A constant observation I’ve made in my work as a trainer and a coach is that most people do not get enough protein in their diet, particularly females as they tend not to be huge meat eaters. It’s an ongoing debate as to how much protein you should actually consume.

But, nevertheless, the undisputed way to get lean and improve your body composition is, protein.

It’s painfully obvious, but believe me when I tell you this — rarely are the simple things employed. I’ve had so many consultations in the past where folks claim they’re doing everything they can to get in shape, but the elephant in the room always seems to be a lack of sufficient protein in their diet.

Increase your portion size, make a protein smoothie, add more whole eggs or egg whites, have some greek yogurt — it’s absolutely essential that you get enough daily protein in order to build appreciable size, strength, and muscle.

Moreover, you have to understand that a protein-rich diet does an amazing job at increasing your metabolism and limiting hunger. Couple that with an intense strength training program, and you’re in for a sweet ride.

Wrap- Up

 

So, by taking this into account, the general recommendation is to consume approximately one gram of protein per pound of bodyweight — watch what happens.
