  • Protein, Protein, Protein!

     

    Too many times, as a CrossFit coach and fitness entrepreneur, I see too many people talking about a lack of energy or just a plain misunderstanding of nutrition.  Each macronutrient has it's purpose, but protein is the most important of all and perhaps the most overlooked macro in our universe.  With the evolution of young children having type II diabetes, an increase in access to processed foods (if you want to call it that), and a generalized lack of health, it is time that we focus in on one thing, PROTEIN!

     

    Let's break this down with 3 major tips about why you should eat more protein:

     

    1. Consume as a healthy snack for steady energy throughout your day. Without a doubt, too many of us either just don't eat enough or just don't get enough protein in your daily life.  Protein is an essential building block for your muscles and you must have it!  You should have some sort of protein every 2-3 hours.

    2.  Use protein as your #1 recovery product after exercise.  You have a 15-20 minute window after exercise where you should replenish with protein.  As glycogen stores become depleted, carbohydrates are necessary for replenishment as well, but protein remains king of them all.

    3. Proteins are also used to make enzymes, hormones, neurotransmitters and various tiny molecules that serve important functions. Without protein, life as we know it would not be possible. The best way to consume the purest of proteins is by eating Paleo.  This means that you stick to lean meats, veggies, some fruit, nuts, seeds and zero sugar!  MHP has developed a delicious protein that implements the Paleo lifestyle!
