The Protein You’re Not Eating (But Should)

Consuming enough protein is incredibly important for our health and fitness, and it’s a topic we’ve often written about on this blog. In fact, maybe you’re the person who orders meals with “double protein” so you’re not hungry again in an hour. But for those of my clients who don’t consume enough protein, a funny thing happens when I ask them to eat more. Almost immediately, more chicken breasts, lean ground turkey, egg whites, beef jerky and low-fat deli meats populate their food logs.
