What are the most oft-asked questions about eating for weight loss, better health, and athletic performance? According to nutrition researcher Paul Arciero, Ph.D., the most common questions are “what” and “when” to eat?
His answer in every case?
Dr Arciero is a professor of health and exercise sciences and director of the Human Nutrition and Metabolism laboratory at Skidmore College. Dr Arciero was the lead researcher in a series of recent studies, including those that involved Isagenix products.
He is a key figure in research on protein pacing with high protein foods. He also investigated protein pacing for losing weight, cardiovascular health, and athletic performance.
“Protein pacing,” Dr. Arciero defines, “is the scientifically proven combination of eating healthy, lean, high protein foods at the right time of day to maximize health and performance.”
How to make Protein Pacing work for you
- Consume more than 1.4 grams of protein per kilogram daily. A recent study showed that athletes who consumed 2 grams of protein per kilogram daily, mainly from Isagenix protein-rich shakes and bars, showed significantly greater improvements to athletic performance compared to those who consumed 1 gram of protein per kilogram daily.
- Spread protein over four to six meals per day.
- Consume about 20-30 grams of protein, or 25-35 percent of your total protein intake each meal.
By consuming high protein foods throughout the day, you can maximize muscle maintenance during weight loss. You can also build muscle when combined with exercise.
Even more intriguing to those seeking fat loss, recent research suggests that protein pacing could enhance energy expenditure and improve body composition regardless of dieting. So what does this mean? It means you can build muscle and burn fat without severely restricting calories.
