Perfect Ratio of Protein, Carbs and Fats

For decades, 2000 calories per day has been the standard diet plan. But we’ve learned through science that there’s really no one-size-fits all diet. However, this meal plan is an extremely healthy one and will do wonders for many people, especially if you’re wanting to be fit and lean. It’s what we consider the prefect ratio of protein, carbs, and fats.

I consider this sort of a middle-of-the-road diet plan as 2000 calorie diets have been recommended as the norm for decades. However, I feel your protein portions need to be higher than what many 2000 diets recommend.

Quality protein will help keep boost your metabolism kicked in gear and will also help you build lean muscle tissue which is imperative for fat loss. There’s just enough healthy fats in this meal plan to give you the essential fats your body needs.

Lean Food = Lean Muscle

This 2000 calorie diet plan consists of five small meals spread throughout the day. This will boost your metabolism allowing your body to turn into a fat burning machine. I always recommend weight training or some sort of resistance training regardless of what your fitness goals are.

But it’s imperative to train with weights while on this diet program as it’s designed to help you build lean muscle. Muscle compliments the fat burning process tremendously.

The protein sources in this plan are lean and should keep you hunger satisfied. The carbs are from sources that your body can use for workout and function properly, and the fats are from essential sources for heart health.

Try this diet plan out; it’s well-rounded and healthy. Depending on your goals as far as weight and fitness level you may want to make slight adjustments after a couple of weeks. If you exercise on a regular basis this 2000 calorie diet plan will help you reach your fat loss goals faster.

Train (and eat) with Passion,

Jason
