High Protein

Protein burns more calories than carbs or fats while being digested.

Protein ensures you retain muscle while eating in a deficit, and is crucial for building muscle.

And protein keeps you full longer → less snacking → easier to stick to nutrition goals.

These are the high protein foods we use and have seen our clients love.
