Being healthy is a goal of mine. I am still working on my fitness goals, but I feel much better now that I have done the #proteinchallege. I usually don't post body selfies, but I am so happy with my results I wanted share.
I learned that I only ate about half of the protein that my body needs.
I learned that I have a lot more energy if I eat my full protein requirements for the day.
I lost 5 pounds!
I lost 6 inches!
I learned that having a high protein breakfast makes a world of difference.
I learned that I don't need snacks if I get my recommended protein. Its a fact, that adults in the U.S. are encouraged to get 10% to 35% of their day's calories from protein foods. That's about 46 grams of protein for women, and 56 grams of protein for men, according to WebMd . I would encourage you all to take the #proteinchallege. Another fact is a 3-ounce serving of beef provides more than 10 essential nutrients and about half of your Daily Value for protein. (http://factsaboutbeef.com)
To help me with my protein challenge diary I used a an app on my phone called My Fitness Pal. It is a good way to keep a diary of what you eat.
Another challenge that I took with the #proteinchallenge was to drink 100 oz. of water a day. Water is so important to our bodies and drinking 100 oz of water and eating my recommended serving of protein has made me a better healthier person.
So, my friends, I would challenge you to enter the #proteinchallenge and see what kind of results you get.
Prime Rib, helped me meet my protein goal

Since I work in town, Subway makes a very good
salad loaded with protein.
