If you could only eat one macronutrient, protein is the one you would live the longest on. Eating protein at all meals is important because the more protein you consume, the more protein you will synthesize, and the more you synthesize, the more proteins you will turn over. You are constantly turning over proteins in every part of your body, from your eyes to your toes. The more proteins you have to replace old or damaged ones, the more optimal your health will be.
We know from steps 5 and 6 that animal source protein comes with a whole pile of nutrients and benefits, but, something that is not quite so well known is that your immune system / health is very closely tied to how much protein you consume. The immune system requires protein for proper T-cell function (T-cells are your germ fighters). The immune system requirement is only increased the more you train...
On average, we want 1-2 palm sized portions of animal protein per meal… Make it happen.
