The ideal amount of proteins you should be intaking on a daily basis depends on the number of meals. If you are used to having three meals a day, you should be intaking from 3-6 Oz. (85 g – 170g) PER MEAL, altogether approximately 15 Oz. daily. If you are used to having two meals a day, you should be intaking approximately 7 Oz. (200g) of proteins per meal, so 14 Oz. (400g) per day.
The best solution for fat-burning is intermittent fasting, and OMAD (one meal a day). If you are practicing OMAD, you should be intaking only 9 Oz. (255 grams) of proteins per meal/day. Intermittent fasting (and OMAD) greatly boost HGH (Human Growth Hormone – Anti Aging Hormone), which burns fat.
For females, intermittent fasting might increase levels of HGH by 1300%, and for men up to 2000%, which is almost 5 times more than exercising (450%). When you lower protein intake levels your body will switch to a conservative mode and will begin recycling old, stored, and/or damaged proteins, so, you’re not losing proteins but actually replacing them.
Here are some foods you should consume frequently:
- EGGS (pasture-raised, organic/commercial eggs are full of Omega-6 and GMOs).
- High-quality grass-fed beef.
- Turkey and Chicken are very lean types of birds (low in fat, high in protein). Consumption of skinless chicken meat might actually boost insulin, so if you’re going to eat birds, make sure you eat the skin as well. The skin is full of fats, which are essential for success in the fat-burning process.
