PROTEIN POWER

BUILD POWERFUL MUSCLES WITH PROTEIN

Did you know that eating quality protein builds strong, beautiful muscles? A good rule of thumb is to eat at least 20 to 25 grams of pure protein with every meal - including snacks! For example you can eat salmon, tuna, lean red meat, tofu, chicken breasts, turkey, protein powders, protein bars (low carb), fat free cottage cheese & egg whites. Add a complex carb, veggies and some good fats (i.e. flax seed oil, egg yolk, extra virgin olive oil, fish oil, avocado or almonds & walnuts) and you'll have a LivFit meal.

Extra Tip: Always remember to exercise portion control with each meal. A typical portion size is the size of your fist for your three main meals and half that for your snacks.
