I would like to share (with her permission) a recipe for a protein smoothie that I got from a local nutritionist. She has counselled family and friends and gets high praise. I like this recipe because it works for the child (or adult) who is fruit averse, or generally averse to anything unusual, but who would benefit from having a protein rich breakfast or snack to replace a sugary carb load. It is quick to make and can be consumed in the car running late to work or school.
I saw a video on Men's Health the other day titled "6 Protein Myths:". After watching it I felt like it lacked depth and by not addressing some of the information I was doing a disservice to all who followed that page. The following is my observation.
Misconception #1:"Protein Builds Muscle" The first myth is kind of common sense. Contrary to popular belief protein doesn't build muscle. Protein is what your muscle is made of.
The actual story starts a while back, when I decided to participate in a shorter race distance than an Ironman. Something with a punch would be a good change of pace.I thought it would be a super idea to get the “brick” (more on that in a bit) and race the Savageman 70.0 in Deep Creek Lake, MD on September 18, 2016.
I have people approach me almost everyday seeking my advice about losing weight, or they have started started a diet and exercise regimen, but seem to have reached a plateau in their efforts. I know the topic of weight loss is always a confusing one.
