When receiving a new meal plan or any information regarding your macro tracking the first thing people notice is a higher protein intake than usual. This is because a number of people underestimate the amount of protein they need and aren’t aware they aren’t actually taking in the recommended daily amount (you’ll need even more if you are training regularly!).
If you have a set meal plan then you just need to follow it and the maths is out of the equation, but if you are tracking your own food and trying to hit numbers it can sometimes be difficult to find quick, easy, decent protein sources – especially if you are in a hurry and haven’t had time to organise or prep your food.
The list below highlights some of the quick and easily accessible protein sources to help you keep on track no matter what:
Some people really panic about eating out or not having the food they normally would readily available. If there is a dinner or restaurant you want to attend but you are worried about going ‘off-track’ while there, try to pick a good protein source, accompanied but either a carb OR a fat source. This way you can eliminate the risk of going over board, and still enjoy your food without worry or going off course. Alternatively, take the time to just enjoy the social occasion and get back to your usual routine afterwards! After all, you still need to be able to enjoy yourself!
