As trainers, we find that we are constantly asking our clients to eat more. Irrespective of your training goal, protein intake is not a negotiable discussion. Fat loss and hypertrophy both require a minimum amount of protein intake daily so that muscle is maintained and not lost. Muscle loss is never the goal, so at PPT, we aim to ensure our clients are getting enough of this macronutrient.
With so many options and ways to get your protein in, there really isn’t an excuse. Its more than chicken, turkey or salmon, there’s a stack of options, so mix it up, keep it interesting and enjoy your meals.
