So when this article came through my inbox I thought I better take a peek. After I read through it I knew I had to share!
Basically, the guys as ME say that if you are looking for fat loss then you want to fuel up with protein beforehand - twenty minutes before to be exact. Woo Hoo. This is great news for me. The first reason is that I have a hard time with too many carbs. My body metabolizes them so quickly that I am left wanting more food, more sweets, and I end up on a sugar roller-coaster. The second reason is that I have been loading up on protein shakes for the last few months and I really like the simple, quick and easy snack or meal I can create in my vitamix.
So what are some quick protein snacks? Here is my list thus far. If you have other ideas please share.
- Protein shake (Love my NutriVeda!)
- Raw Nuts
- Deli meat
- Cottage Cheese
- Beef Jerky
- Almond Butter or Peanut Butter
