The Conversation

Today we talk all about PROTEIN!

When you think about what to eat, you need to base your decision about WHAT ELSE you’ll be eating that day

Calculate your daily protein intake the simple way:

Body Weight in lbs = grams of protein daily


Lean Body Mass = grams of protein daily

Karey’s Example… she’s around 140lbs with probably 110-120lbs lean body mass, so she keeps her protein levels down around 120g

It’s a good idea to bump up your protein intake with age

The research is all over the place, but to be on the safe side… don’t go over 40g of protein per meal

Things to think about when choosing a protein:

Proprietary Blends - lots of brands have this, its not bad, just means you won’t know everything that is in it.

Fillers - If it’s an isolate protein and the serving size in g is not close to the g of protein per serving… um, it’s filler central.

Serving Size - VERIFY THAT SCOOP! It’s a great idea to verify your scoop measurement using your kitchen scale.

Karey’s Favorite Proteins:

Isolean Pro - Isagenix

Ideal Fit Raw (Vegan)

Ideal Fit Whey

Dymatize ISO 100
