Q2. Are you eating enough protein?
Your protein intake determines whether you're going to lose body fat or lean muscle. (Obviously, we want to lose the first and keep the latter.) So, for this next meal, is there enough lean protein included? Men should eat about 2 Palm-sized portions and women should eat about 1 palm-sized portion.
You can choose from sources including; lean meats (chicken, turkey, fish, lean beef, lean game meats), lean vegetarian sources (tofu, tempeh, legumes), or powered protein supplements. Whichever type you choose, make sure you're eating more protein than what you might normally eat.
