Start with the first week’s goal and try to progress a little further each week. By the end of the month, have a plan for how you’ll continue to maximize your new habit!
Week #1 Goal:
Include a source of protein with every major meal (ex. breakfast, lunch, dinner). One serving of protein is approximately the size of your palm.
Week #2 GoaL:
Aim for four servings a day 7/7 days this week. One serving of protein is approximately the size of your palm.
Week #3 Goal:
Calculate your daily protein consumption goal with the following formula:
Grams=[Bodyweight(lbs) x 1.2]
Aim to hit this amount 5/7 days this week.
Week #4 Goal:
Aim to hit your daily protein goal 7/7 days this week. Try to get your protein from fewer legs (ex. chicken is fewer than beef, fish is fewer than chicken).
