Weight Loss Challenge

Today I started a new weight loss challenge with a couple other distributors. They aren't part of the challenge just coaching, but I am part of it. I need to lose another 15lbs and get down to 155lbs.
Today we talked about protein. A couple things I learned about protein. One for optimal weight loss I should be taking in about 138g of protein a day. A couple other things: when protein is absorbed, it sends a signal to the brain to decrease your hunger, whole grains provide protein, protein makes it possible for blood to carry oxygen throughout the body, protein is a "macronutrien" meaning the body needs relatively large amount of it.

Food log:
Red Lobster: 2 muffins, Salmon with Rice and shrimp
Lots of tea
Chicken Wrap
alcohol- hay my day off

Good luck with getting those last 15 LBs off! I definitely love the benefits of protein.

Hey Emmett! Thanks for stopping by my blog. You've got a nice blog too! And I've found that protein is so important to success in my diet. Foods high in protein help keep me feeling satisfied, which is a key to any successful weight loss program. Looks like you've been doing a great job of losing weight. Saw your before and after pics and you look good! Congratulations!

You go!

Protein does help a lot. I notice when I eat a protein bar, that I'm not hungry for hours afterward. I usually have one before we start for the night at the observatory. Also helps if it's cold ... to be burning some calories.
