Clean Protein Meal Plan


As I’ve mentioned many times before, losing weight is hard. Choosing poor diet foods can not only leave you feeling hungry and miserable all the time, but improper dieting can send the wrong signals to your body, causing it to digest large portions of muscle tissue instead of body fat. That’s why we created our new Clean Protein Diet Plan.

How do you prevent muscle loss during a diet?

Muscle is metabolically expensive, which is why we want it in the first place. Having a lot of muscle will mean that you’ll burn more calories just sitting around. Plus having good muscle tone makes you look better. Your body however, does not care about vanity, it cares about your survival. As I’ve mentioned, your body sees losing weight as a sign that you’re starving to death. Once this happens, it will try to shed that expensive muscle tissue by digesting the protein for fuel.

One way to signal your body not to do this is with weight training. If your body needs to use those muscles routinely, it will turn to fat as a source of stored fuel rather than protein. Another way to signal your body to avoid burning muscle tissue is to increase your protein intake. As I mentioned in the Fueling Weight Loss article, the presence of dietary protein will limit the amount of muscle that your body will try to breakdown for necessary amino acids. Your body is a very efficient machine and it will not waste it’s effort manufacturing amino acids as long as you provide them.

Protein offers other benefits as well

Protein takes a lot of effort for your body to digest, which is great for you in many ways. Not only does the slow digestion process mean that you will feel full longer (an important factor in any diet), but a portion of the energy you consume is actually burnt up in the digestion process.


More than just meat

What scares most people off of a high protein diet is the thought of having to eat boring plate of meat after boring plate of meat with a side of cheese if they’re lucky. A real protein-rich diet should contain a large portion of fruits and vegetables and our meal plan is no exception. The idea is to have 20+ percent protein with every meal, not 100 percent. We’ve kept the meals interesting with simple to prepare recipes of real food like spaghetti and even German pancakes. It’s all carefully measured to make sure you consume enough protein to metabolically aid your weight loss.

This 10 day meal plan will give you interesting and unique meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner that will keep you satisfied as your body burns through it’s fat stores. Keep the muscle and lose the fat with the Clean Protein Meal Plan.
