Have trouble getting in enough protein each day?
At CFP, every member receives a custom nutrition plan which is updated every 30 days to help accelerate your progress toward your health and fitness goals. But a lot of our members have trouble hitting their protein goal each day.
Some of the best low fat high protein sources are:
- Fish (Tuna, Flounder, Cod, Tilapia)
- Ground Turkey
- Egg Whites
- Greek Yogurt
- Whey Isolate Protein Powder
Some good high protein sources with moderate to higher fats are:
- Ground Beef
Some good vegetarian and vegan protein options are:
- Nuts/Peanut Butter
If you have trouble hitting you protein each day, a good idea is to meal prep your proteins for 3-4 days or a full week ahead of time. Most high protein sources need to be cooked and can take a long time to cook, which leads to easy excuses to skip the protein altogether at that meal. By cooking up a big batch of chicken, fish, or ground turkey early in the week, you can then easily add them to salads, or with a carb source such as rice or potatoes without having to take the time to prepare and cook the protein. .
Meal prepping all of your meals can be exhausting and unrealistic, but by just focusing on prepping large batches of high protein foods, it can make it much easier to stay on track the rest of the week.
