I really need to increase my proteins and reduce my carbohydrates and fats. I started lifting weights on Tuesday and I know that protein is necessary to build muscle. My current diet is full of carbohydrates and fat, with the lowest percentage being proteins consistently. I am not one for vegetables, so that means I need to increase protein-rich meat, fish, and poultry. This is going to be hard because, even though I am quite carnivorous, a large amount of those foods goes a long way and tend to sit heavy in the stomach. I have found other foods, such as breads, that have been designed and manufactured to be high in protein and lower in carbohydrates, but they are expensive. I will definitely have to keep looking, and take supplements in the meantime, but I won’t give up.
