protein, carbs and fat

What does Protein DO?

  • Most people feel more full with more protein in their diets.  Most people are going to be hungry if they don’t get protein at most meals.
  • You need protein so you hold on to muscle while you lose fat.  Straight carbohydrate diets are a pretty sure path to skinny-fat (or fat-fat).

What Protein DOESN’T DO?

  • Protein doesn’t produce magical fat loss properties.
  • Protein isn’t a “free food” the way that vegetables are.

What About Carbohydrates?

  • 90% of the population will do better on a diet that includes at least 30% carbohydrates
  • Good carbs are real food.  Fruit, vegetables, brown rice, oats, etc.
  • Evil carbs come out of boxes, have 19 ingredients, and include high fructose corn syrup.

The Magical Ratio of Carbs to Protein – It’s 40% carbohydrates, 30% protein, and 30% fat.

It’s also low calorie, and favors better, cleaner food over processed food. People, who follow it for real, get great results.

The only problem is that you may feel hungry all the time especially if you are new to a disciplined food regime, so here is what you do to the magic ratio:

  • If you feel full with slightly more good carbs, then we add more good carbs to your diet.
  • If you feel full with slightly more protein, then we add more lean proteins to your diet.
  • If you feel full with slightly more fat, then we add more healthy fat to your diet.

And experience has shown me that it works.
