Doctor's Orders: Pro Protein Tips

In addition to eating several times a day, it's a good idea to stay focused on your protein consumption at each meal. By making certain that you take in a minimum of 20 grams of protein at each meal, it will be easier to get your daily total of about 1.5 grams per pound of bodyweight.

This includes snacks, as well. Don't just snack on a piece of fruit without an accompanying protein source. You always want to include a quality protein source every time you feed yourself.

Beef jerky makes a great portable protein that you can take anywhere. Keep it in your car, office desk, or gym bag. That way, if you're ever short a snack, you always have some quality protein within reach.

Protein bars also make a great protein to stash for those moments when you don't have time to grab a real meal.

Active Rest

Remember that every rest day should be an active rest day. Rest days are for recovery; they're not an excuse to be lazy. Get out and hit 15-30 minutes of HIIT cardio today, or perform 30-60 minutes of your favorite activity: hiking, biking, walking, playing a sport, etc.
