I have a bit of a problem in that I feel as though I’m not getting nearly enough protein daily. I have an egg allergy, and while it isn’t anaphylactic, I don’t really enjoy the nasty reaction I get when eating eggs. I‘ve also recently found out I’m lactose intolerant.
I know you’re not a big fan of milk, but it was a decent source of protein for me! And of course, I can’t eat cheese. I can tolerate Greek yogurt. Anyway, I try and eat some tuna, fish, and other forms of meat/chicken, but it’s not always possible to More >
I just discovered you through Facebook, and I’m already loving your posts/articles/thoughts, etc.
One of your recommendations is avoiding processed food. I too am a big believer in eating whole foods, but I can’t always consume all of my calories in a day – I just can’t seem to fit them all in LOL!
I’m having trouble with weight loss and the guys at the health supplement store seemed to think I wasn’t eating enough and recommended two protein shake snacks a day and one recovery shake after my workouts. This is man made processed food and seems to More >
I’m 28, 5’10” and weigh 170 lbs.
I work my butt off in the gym 4-5 times a week and am in good shape but like everyone else out there – I’m always looking to bulk up more.
My question concerns protein powders. I eat a protein bar and down a protein shake each day religiously and also eat lean chicken, turkey and tuna. But I don’t know how much protein I should be taking in each day.
One friend tells me I should aim to consume 2 grams of protein for each pound of bodyweight, another says it’s one gram and More >
I keep reading about creatine in virtually every magazine I read – but I really have no idea what it is – and what it does.
My friend swears by it and claims it’s essential for anyone looking to develop serious muscle. Do you agree? Have you ever used it? And which brands do you recommend?
Hey everyone – it’s Top 10 time again!
This time around we’re talking snacks – those all-important bites that keep us going throughout the day. Snacking keeps calories coming in and elevate your metabolism, but too often they’re skipped, or we consume way too much. As always it’s all about smart choices AND portion control… So here’s my Top 10 list of the best snacks to grab on the go…
I have a slightly delicate question for you!
I’ve been weight training for years and have made some good gains in the gym. I weigh 170lbs and try and consume around 3,000 calories a day with a 30-20-50 protein, fat, carbohydrate split.
That means I need to eat 225 grams of protein a day – which I largely achieve through eating chicken, fish, protein bars and shakes.
My problem – I have quite bad wind due to all the protein I’m consuming – and, not to be blunt, but it doesn’t smell great! There’s only so many times I can leave a More >
I work out in the mornings before I go to work and I’m finding it really hard to get charged up and energized for an early start.
I basically wake up at 6.30am and am at my gym by 7.30. Trouble is I’m still half asleep and often find myself half halfheartedly going through the motions.
I generally grab a bowl of healthy cereal – like Protein Crunch – before I workout, but I don’t want to each much more or I find I get full and sluggish. So how can I get my energy levels up and put in a More >
