Dinnertime!

tuna Dinnertime!Hey ProSource fans,

Keep all those recipes coming in and help all of us reach our goals for daily eating. The next meal we’ll address is the 5th meal. For many of us, this is the dinner time meal and having your regular chicken/beef/tuna with your complex carbs such as brown rice, baked potato, and greens is ideal. This meal is very important in that it’s one of the last “food” meals we’ll have for the day, and we have to make this clean as possible. This is the time we all tend to wind down and for many this is the time we have to be wary of. We have to watch because we can put on unwanted weight. The night time is one of the worst time for many, including myself, so being strict is the name of the game.

4th Meal Tips and Advice

cados 4th Meal Tips and AdviceHey ProSource Fans,

So we have talked about breakfast, the 2nd meal, and lunch. Let me mention the 4th meal, in which normally I use NytroWhey Ultra. Along with that I will either have a half cup of oats and/or a tablespoon of peanut butter. Now, the 2nd meal and the 4th meal are very important (which every meal is), but they are also the ones that help you intake protein while not giving you much time elapsed without eating. The one main purpose of eating every two to three hours is keeping your muscles from breaking down.

Now the meals you can have are just about anything, but remember its supposed to be a snack-like meal where you can take in 20-30 grams of protein. Don’t be afraid to eat some complex carbs, you can absolutely eat fruits and veggies but make sure you are getting protein in the meals you are eating. This can be used for anyone who is looking to put size on or even lean up.

Here are some lunch ideas to give you some variety:

Mid Morning Snack Recipes for Growth or Cutting

shutterstock 7912117 Mid Morning Snack Recipes for Growth or CuttingProSource.net fans,

Last blog I talked about breakfast meals and how to mix and match them. This time around we’re going to talk about the importance of the meals between breakfast and lunch. It’s important to feed our bodies with “snacks” considered as a meal. In doing so, it gives the body extra energy and the protein/carbs our body needs to function throughout the day.

This also helps us put size on and or can help lean the body down. Of course there are different meals to eat that will help with what you are looking for, but it is important to have a snack. Eating every 2 hrs is what I do, and you should absolutely give it a shot. Or you can do every 3 hrs. This has many effects on the body. One, it speeds up your metabolism, helping with cutting body fat and building muscle. I get asked all the time … what should I do to help lose weight or gain weight? Well, this is part of the answer. Mix up the meals that way you keep it fresh too. Hope this helps, fans!

Here are some snack ideas to give you some variety:

If you are Cutting, try this snack:
Can of tuna (in water) with Vinegar
