Every week I answer a question or questions that are sent in to me regarding fat burning, weight loss, diet, fitness and or the Fat X program. Today's question was sent in to me on myspace and is regards to supplementing with protein.
A friend of mine did your fat loss program and had great results. I'm trying to get lean and toned and I'll be starting my Fat X project this weekend. I just bought a protein powder supplement and was wondering when and how I should use it. Thanks for your help.
Protein is required to help repair and maintain muscle. It's very important that you get enough protein so as to feed your muscle. Your muscle is what is going to keep your metabolism revved up and give you that toned look once your burn the fat. I try to get about a gram per pound of lean body tissue. I usually start the day with a protein smoothie/shake just to get me off on a good start. I'll also have another after workouts to help recover from workouts as quickly as possible. Hope this helps and good look with the workout program.
