Protein is a really important macronutrient to facilitate losing body fat and building muscle. If you front load it, meaning you prioritize it at every meal, it becomes much easier to hit your target number each day.

For example, when I plan breakfast, I make sure I’m eating mostly protein sources like egg whites and turkey bacon, THEN I consider my carb sources and add those in. For lunch I do the same thing. 

Eating an adequate amount of protein every day will ensure that you can recover from workouts, and that you stay feeling full, longer throughout the day.

Fat loss so much easier when you’re not starving all day long. Protein is a satiating macronutrient. 

If you’re a meat eater, you will have no problem hitting your target protein number every day. I have recently increased my red meat consumption and I’m feeling great. 

A big goal I set for 2020 was to learn how to hunt, and while I’m not sure I will be able to check this one off the list in the next five months, it’s still something I really want to learn how to do in the future. 

I want to know where my meat comes from and I would really like to move away from relying on grocery stores for damn near everything. I prefer to learn to hunt in Alaska, but I’m open to traveling elsewhere if the opportunity arises.

I’m not interested in trophy hunting or keeping heads or skins on my wall, I just want access to good quality meat that I have to work for. It’s more meaningful when you have to earn your meals.

If you’re struggling with feelings of hunger, fatigue and building muscle is difficult, increase your meat consumption for your protein sources and see if that changes things.
