Protein on the Go: 5 Protein Snacks You Can Carry With You
You’re busy working a job, caring for family and trying to make time to get to the gym - you’re on the go. You don’t have time to sit down and eat a complete meal, but you still need to get your protein. A sedentary person needs around 0.8 grams of protein per pound of body weight, but if you’re doing resistance training and high-intensity exercise, you may need as much as 1.4 grams of protein per kilogram of weight.
The advantage of eating small amounts of protein throughout the day is it helps to suppress appetite, and it keeps muscles supplied with a constant flow of amino acids for building lean body mass. That’s where protein snacks come in. It’s a good idea to have some quick and easy protein sources you can tap into when you don’t have time to eat a sit-down meal. Here are some protein snacks you can carry with you during your busy day.
