Protein Sources & Fat Facts

Today's issue is essential knowledge for everyone, who works out and would like to stay in shape. 

What concerns every athlete is the protein portion they get. As we know proteins are a nutritious ingridient category, which in our case, help muscles rest and heal after workout. The question is where can we find these ingredients. Food such as pultry, red meat, eggs, fish, diary products and legumes contain a rich amount of protein! Another question is how much protein should we take in daily basis. It's 1.1-1.5 times our bodyweight in grams, for example if I am 85 kg then the recommended protein amount for me is  93.5-120.7max grams. That's all the basics we need to know about protein
and don't forget sometimes it's important to use protein supplements(whey e.t.c) because eating a whole chicken(50gr aprox. of protein) not only is it difficult but sometimes impossible, but supplements will concern us another time. 


Fats make up the energy storage of our body, which starts getting burnt after all the glucose and other carbohydrates we have taken, get burnt. Without fat we can barely live. A decent fat percentage at a male body is 12-9%, below it's aesthetics ideal. At a female body the decent percentage is 20-17 and the ideal below 16. There are 3 kind of facts that are included in food: Saturated fats, unsaturated fats and trans fats. Starting from the third category, it's important to say that is the "useless" one and that because it can cause heart problems and moreover cancer. They are found in junk food. Saturated fats are usually found in red meat and fish(in low percentages). In big amounts can cause heart problems and they are hardly-burnt, so we have to avoid them as much we can. Unsaturated fats are found in peanut butter, avocados e.t.c. This kind can easily get burnt by our body and it's the least dangerous.
