THIS WEEK’S “ASK GILAD” BLOG

Question: I have upped my free weights program recently and I have a feeling that I am not eating enough protein to sustain it. I am going to up my intake of protein. What is the best way?

Answer: Be careful when choosing the types of protein you eat. Despite our increased knowledge of nutrition, at least one out of five people are still eating a greasy bacon cheeseburger for lunch. Certainly it has protein, and plenty of it, but it also comes with an artery-clogging quantity of fat. That same person is probably having red meat at one or two more meals of the day, maybe bacon and eggs for breakfast or a big steak for dinner. That average diet is way too high in fat...and probably unnecessarily high in protein as well. While eating too much protein is not going to harm you the way eating too much fat is, it is still tough on the body.
Remember the alternate, non-animal sources of protein like rice, beans, seeds and nuts and bon appetit!
