It’s easy to overeat even the healthiest of meals. Especially with protein. Somehow we think that overeating protein is a good thing, it goes straight to the muscle! Well wouldn’t that be nice! The muscle will take as much as it needs, then the rest will be stored as fat. A good standard is to eat 1.4-2 grams of protein per kg of bodyweight, per day, depending on your goals.
The simplest way to know your portions is to use your hand. Protein no bigger than the size of your palm, a cupped handful of starchy carbs, a fist full of veggies and the tip of the thumb for fat.
You can eat as clean as you want but at the end of the day, if your input (food) exceeds your output (calories burned), the result will be stored fat! ?
