Looking for a magic bullet for weight loss?
Protein is as close as you’ll get.
Protein helps to keep you full longer & helps to repair & build lean muscle.
It helps manage energy levels by reducing insulin spikes when eaten with carbs.
Aim to get some protein with every meal & snack (at least 10g).
Most women would do well to have a minimum of 100g of protein spread out the day.
Your body can only process so much protein at a time, so aim to have about 25g of protein per serving.
Keep in mind that the WEIGHT of the protein source is not how much protein is actually in the source – you’ll see that 25g of protein looks different depending on the source.
Using a food scale is your best bet to measure, but generally, 4 oz is about the size of a deck of cards.
Another way to eye ball your protein is to have a serving about the size of your palm.
If your weight loss has stalled, there may be other factors at play & it’s NOT that your body is broken!
You may just need some outside eyes to troubleshoot for you.
Happy to help!
