PROTEIN PACING helps control your hunger.

PROTEIN PACING helps control your hunger. Dividing your total protein per day into 4 to 7 meals of 25 grams each will help maintain your muscle, build your muscle, and control your hunger. Each protein meal beginning with breakfast should control hunger for at least 3 hours. Many people eat too little protein at breakfast or skip it altogether while eating a little more at lunch and too much at dinner. Have a protein-rich shake within 30 minutes to 1 hour after resistance exercise (weights, resistance bands, Pilates, yoga) to optimize muscle building. The extra protein at dinner above the response range does not help muscle protein. So decrease the protein at dinner and increase at breakfast. The easiest way to do this is not with red meat that has extra fat and calories but with protein shakes and lean meats like chicken breast, turkey breast or ocean fish. If you want meatless meals combine corn and beans or whole grain rice and beans with firm tofu. Protein Pacing will help you control your hunger. So plan your daily eating and protein timing and stick with it. Your body will thank you! #drdavidheber #shakes #diet #protein #muscle #hungry to learn more go to and
