 Want to get lean? Protein will help you get there. My go to sources are 1. Eggs - Eat the whole egg. The yolk is actually the most nutrient dense portion of the egg, providing a ton of vitamins and minerals. 6 grams per egg of muscle building protein. 2. Pork - The "other" white meat, just as lean as chicken when you get the right cut. Go with the Pork lion or boneless pork chops.

Colin Campbell, PhD.

That's why you put on 3 pounds when you weigh yourself the next day. How do you undo the damage you did last night? DRINK MORE WATER
