You’ve likely heard that you should be eating extra protein in your diet if you’re looking to change your body’s composition and performance. If you haven’t heard already, protein is one of the building block macronutrients that is fundamental to life. It’s critical for just about every major process in the human body.
The fact is that exercising the human body requires more protein than one at rest. The act of exercise, especially resistance training and high intensity interval training, causes proteins in your body to breakdown (AKA your muscles). It’s through proper recovery and introduction of the right amino acids, the individual “bricks” of proteins, that we see our body become stronger.
You’ll want to fuel yourself by eating whole food protein sources such as lean meats, nuts, low-fat dairy, legumes, fish, and even vegetables like Brussel sprouts. Yet, you’ll need snack or meal bars and protein powders for when you’re on the go. Taking in protein doesn’t have to be boring or bland if you don’t want it to be. If you like taste, Chef Robert Irvine’s FITCRUNCH® protein bars and powders are perfect for you. Robert’s protein powders come in 6 delicious flavors that provide up to 25 grams of protein per serving while remaining bake-able, Non-GMO, Gluten, and Soy free. These powders also feature Mixology Technology™ which allows you to mix any 6 of the protein blends with another to make your own unique flavor.
Supplementing your daily diet with a delicious shake will make sure you get to your protein goals and fuel your body for better days.
