Science Says THIS Is The Best Eating Plan To Get Lean

With so many different diets flooding the market, it's hard to know what to believe. However, researchers in the US claim to have finally discovered the answer to the best eating plan to get you lean. 

Researchers undertook a year long study looking at the effects of eating a balanced, protein-pacing caloric restriction diet. Participants chowed down on four to six meals a day with a least 20 grams of protein at each meal. 

I've been doing intermittent fasting for a year now and it's been great. But this week, I'm switching things up a bit because I'll be doing some morning workouts due to my work schedule so I'll be refueling right after. This is a sample of my meals when I workout in the AM. Here's what on my plate this week! . [Post Workout] 7:30 am - protein shake. [AM Snack] 10:30 am - half a guava and raw almonds. [Lunch] 12:30 pm - Zoodles with marinara sauce and turkey meatballs. [PM Snack] 4:00 pm - Chickpeas salad with 2 boiled eggs. [Dinner] 7:00 pm - Pan seared salmon, steamed greens and baked butternut squash. [Night Snack] 7:30 pm - One cup of raspberries. . #motivationmonday #fooddiary #whatsonmyplate #fitnessjourney #healthyliving #cleaneating #eathealthy #protein #iliftbro #motivationforfitness #gainz #absaremadeinthekitchen #eatcleantraindirty #eatwell #mealprepsundays #mealprep

One day a week participants undertook intermittent fasting, limiting their calories to 450 a day. Scientists compared the results with a group of participants who followed a healthy heart diet plan. The results were surprising!

Not only did the participants who ate the protein-pacing diet lose weight, but they also experienced other health side effects, such as: reduced artery stiffness, release of toxins and increase in antioxidant levels.
