High-Protein Diet & SANE Protein Servings

Listen



Note 1



The second essential part of SANE eating is filling a third of your plate with nutrient-dense protein.

Note 2



This amounts to about 30 to 55 grams of protein at each meal. That’s about 1 or 2 servings per meal.

Note 3



A serving size will be about as large as two of your palms. For example, a large piece of fish or high-quality meat, a cup and a half of cottage cheese or plain Greek yogurt, three eggs and a large piece of ham, eight egg whites, or a can of tuna.

Moderate-Protein SANE Lifestyle & Eat More Protein, Burn More Fat…Literally

Listen



Note 1



It’s important to eat protein in 30 to 55 gram “doses” to maximize its fat-burning and health-boosting impact.

Note 2



Aim for a total of between 100 grams and 200 grams of protein per day depending on your size and activity level.

Note 3



If you enjoy a SANE amount of Nutrient-Dense Protein every time you eat, you’ll be surprised how full you are and how much better you feel and look long term.

Step 4 of 6



Quiz

Remember these? Give them one more try now that you’ve spent a few minutes going SANE.

Q1

A 200-gram serving of salmon equals 200 grams of Nutrient-Dense Protein.



True

Try again.

False

Correct! A 200-gram serving of salmon contains about 40 grams of protein. Like most SANE foods, salmon is mostly water. You are aiming for between 100 and 200 grams of protein, not 100 to 200 grams of foods containing protein.

Q2

Sarcopenia is like osteoporosis for your muscles and is avoidable by taking a SANE approach to protein.



True

Correct! Eating 30 to 55 grams of Nutrient-Dense Protein 3 times per day enables optimal muscle protein synthesis which prevents you from losing about 5% of your muscle tissue and metabolic health per decade.

False

Try again.

Q3

When going SANE you will be consuming more protein than the U.S. government’s recommended daily allowance and you will be on a high-protein diet.



True

Try again.

False

Correct! While you will be enjoying more protein than the U.S. government’s recommended daily allowance. You will not be eating a high-protein diet. The U.S. government’s recommended daily allowance is a low-protein diet. A SANE approach to protein can be classified as a moderate-protein diet.

Step 5 of 6



Support

The number of people keeping you accountable is your #1 predictor of long-term success.

Sharing your SANEity enables you to enjoy instant accountability and support from your social networks. The science is 100% clear: The more you share your SANEity, the more success you will enjoy.
