1. Make a Plan of Attack
The best place to start with your plan is to ask yourself “Why?”. Why are you beginning this journey? Why now? How do you feel now and how will you feel once you achieve your ultimate goal?
You need to dig deep and discover your true motives for weight loss. Do you really just want to be fit or are you sick of not having the stamina to play with your kids outside? Do you really just want to lose 20lbs or do you want your significant other to feel full of pride that you take such great care of yourself?
For some people, consuming the necessary amount of protein on a daily basis in order to build & maintain muscle can be challenging. That’s why having a good protein powder on hand can be so beneficial.
Your body uses protein to build and repair tissues, as well as to make enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals. Protein helps you manage your weight as it keeps you feeling fuller longer than the other macronutrients. It can also help improve your mood, stabilize blood sugar levels, promote healthy brain functioning and learning, protect your heart health, and slow aging.
