It is the start of a new year. I know everyone knows what that means, lots of resolutions and goal setting for the new year. I am hoping to continue to meet my health goals in 2016. This year is going to be different, I am sure some of you have said that before. But I am going to use these 5 tips and hopefully discover some more that will help me to reach my health goals this year. I admire our own goodenoughmother and all of the strides she has been making with her fitness and help with Ladimax Fitness. I started and didn’t quite finish a few years ago so this year I will finish strong!
2. EAT PROTEIN
What is protein? Some examples of protein are meat, poultry, fish, dairy products, seeds, nuts, dairy products, and eggs are great sources of dietary protein. NBC’s “Biggest Loser” trainer Jillian Michaels says you should eat half your weight in grams of protein daily (if you weigh 200lbs eat 100gms of protein). There are a couple easy ways to achieve this, eat protein with every meal. If you don’t eat meat or eggs for breakfast you can add a glass of milk or milk in your cereal to get your morning protein. You can also add chia seeds or flaxseeds to your breakfast, I put them in my oatmeal. I also incorporate protein shakes in addition to my daily meals. I use milk and egg protein because of my soy allergies, but whey protein is very popular and now there is hemp protein powder as well as others. Read the nutrition label and decide what works best for you.
