Whey Protein Power

Whey Protein Power
Are you getting the results you want after hours and energy you put forth in the gym? If you're working out and not getting the results you want then it's time to reconsider your diet. You may be lacking the macronutrients of protein--which are the building blocks of sculpting lean muscle mass. 
Protein needs to be a staple in any fitness enthusiasts diet with each meal and snack they eat. There are several sources of protein but not all are created equal in biological value (BV) which enables the protein to broken down and used well in the body. The top of the list of best protein to have to build lean, sexy muscles is whey protein. 

Whey protein is much higher in BV than plant source proteins. The body can use the nutrients in whey protein better and faster than plant or animal based protein. Whey protein comes from milk and is available in various forms: whey protein isolate which is fast digesting and has lower cholesterol, sodium and fat, whey protein concentrate which digest slower than whey isolate protein, it is more cost-effective but can have a lot of cholesterol and sodium, and whey protein casein which is slow digesting.
Which Whey Protein to Have Post Exercise
It’s best to have a whey protein isolate within 45 minutes after training (the sooner the better) and a blend of whey proteins later in the day. After a tough workout your body needs to replenish the nutrients that got depleted from your tough workout to have the building blocks to rebuild lean muscle. Having a whey isolate protein drink with a banana and oatmeal is an excellent post workout meal that will fuel your muscles as needed. 
Incorporating high BV-proteins in your diet are not only better for muscle growth but also for reducing muscle loss as compared to low BV-proteins such as plant-based proteins. Listed below are the proteins from a scale of 1 to 100 with 100 being most biological value (absorbs the fastest).
Top Protein BV: Egg 93.7, Milk 84.5 (whey), Fish 76.0, Beef 74.3, Soybeans 72.8, whole wheat 64.0, Beans 58.0
Therefore best proteins to have to support a lean physique are: Whey protein, eggs (egg whites), fish, chicken, and lean beef.
Make it point to have protein with each meal and snack; you can have a protein shake or a protein bar (whey protein bar) for snacks and chicken or fish for lunch and dinner to achieve your fitness goals sooner.

THE ART OF VISUALIZING YOUR DREAM BODY
"Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil."~James Allen
It’s empowering to know that we can literally alter our life experiences & physique by tapping into the power of your mind.  By having thoughts and feelings that are positive, the mind will be able to create the world of your dreams in great detail.
Your thoughts are like a magnet, a simple thought will have a weak magnetic power just like a small magnet does. A powerful emotion such as joy or fear will have a much greater magnetic pull, thus it will magnetize more of what you are feeling into your life.

Paleo Low Carb Protein Spiced Pumpkin Cookies

Paleo Low Carb Protein Spiced Pumpkin Cookies

I absolutely LOVE this time of year! I relish the smell of fall in the air and joy of baking delicious fall desserts for my family. I enjoy baking traditional recipes for my family, however, I don't eat sugar nor do I eat wheat or high carb flours. 
Sugar and high carbs only cause weight gain and inflammation in the body, which is why I eat a clean diet free of trans fats, processed foods, sugars and high carbs.  Protein is also a high priority in my diet, I incorporate protein into my recipes when fitting. I use whey protein isolate in all my baked recipes. 
And for good reason, protein keeps blood sugar level and aids in maintaining muscle mass, which is a must for me to keep my lean physique. So needless to say, I make up a lot of low carb recipes to suite my diet and to continue to have fun baking for my family and friends.
