I’m doing the ‘This is Fitness’ Challenge over here: https://www.facebook.com/
I’d love it if you joined me daily.
This topic is SO important tho, I wanted to include it here…
🍴Fuel for your body…
➡️Protein is the ‘missing’ macro for most women
✳️Repairs/rebuilds lean muscle tissue
✳️Moderates blood sugar for better insulin management
✳️Maintains energy levels so you avoid crashes and the ‘hangry’s’
✳️Helps build metabolism
If I were to give ONE trick to losing your menopause belly, it would be to eat more protein.
❌Most women consume higher carb and high fat diets and can’t get lean.
⭐️When you change the composition of your food (more protein), you can change the composition of your body WITHOUT DECREASING INTAKE SIGNIFICANTLY!
❌You can’t ‘starve’ off fat. Your body will go into survival mode and hold onto every ounce.
⭐️You can COAX off fat by FEEDING your body, specifically with the right composition of macros (protein/carbs/fats).
⭐️When your body sees that there’s a steady supply of the right kind of energy coming in, it will boost up metabolism.
Protein is not always the most ‘fun food’ – especially on the go – you need to be creative to get your protein in but it’s well worth it!
Women, a good start is to eat 1 g of protein per pound of body mass – altho this will be a LOT for most of you so try for 100g of protein daily.
🍖🍣Split your protein into 3-5 meals/snacks and it’s not an overwhelming amount. 🍳🍤
💦Drink a ton of water to help your body process your intake and NO! your kidneys will NOT be over taxed eating 100g of protein a day!

As for me…
I have a protein supplement after training, then the majority of my protein comes from chicken, turkey, eggs and and fish. I like beef but it’s a bit high fat so I have it 1-2 times a week.
If you think that your fitness alone will get rid of your menopause belly, you are incorrect – your flat belly is made in the kitchen with healthy nutrition.
⬆️The ‘this is fitness’ challenge today is to increase your protein intake.
⁉️What’s your fav protein source?
