Muscle Meal – for the day

With summer just months away and the fat holidays behind us, it’s time to hit the weights and get the beach-figure workin’. While reading a “Men’s Health” magazine the other day, I came across a daily food intake that results in 131 grams of protein – perfect if you’re trying to build muscle. Because we must all know that how often you work out is just as important as what you eat, this diet is worth taking a look at. Check it out:

Breakfast (33 g of protein) – 3 eggs, 1 slice cheddar cheese, 1 slice canadian bacon     (Possibly an omelet or sandwich with no bread)

Snack (24 g of protein) – 1 cup cottage cheese with fruit     (Some people hate cottage cheese, I happen to love it. Take it down, it’s only a cup!)

Lunch (23 g of protein) – 3 oz. sliced meat, 2 slices whole wheat bread     (Sandwich – ditch the mayo for some mustard)

Snack (6 g of protein) – 1 oz. almonds

Dinner (45 g of protein) – 1 six-oz. tenderloin, 1/2 cup cooked spinach (Meat, meat, meat! Chicken breast and fish is also a good dinner option)

Obviously this diet isn’t for everyone, but it’s a good day’s chow-down if you’re looking for a sufficient protein intake. Again, “Men’s Health” magazine has some really interesting and useful content, totally worth the subscription (somewhat like Maxim but with more useful information and not nearly as sexist).
