You have been working hard to save for that well deserved summer holiday and it is now only 4 months before you pack your suitcase and jet off for a week. Excited at the thought of lounging around on the beach topping up on your tan, whilst reading your favourite books and sipping your favourite drinks.
For many of us, before we go away on our holiday one of our goals is to lose weight and to drop a dress size before we have to get into our bikini or swimming trunks.

Going to the gym is an ideal way to tone up and loose those extra pounds. You will initially be given a workout routine depending on what your goal will be. You will use resistance machines to tone up or jump on the treadmill or cycle work to burn those extra calories.
The plan will be given to you in the form of a tailored work out routine for you to achieve your goals and lose those extra pounds.

What is protein? It helps build, protect and maintain tissue in your body. A lot of our body contains it, from muscle to organs and even our immune system. When we digest it our stomachs turn it into amino acids, these acids are the building blocks for our bodies. Eating this type of product keeps us fuller for longer.
Research has found that there are 22 different types within our bodies. 13 of them can be made naturally within our bodies, but that leaves 9 that cannot. We can however get the other 9 from making sure are diets contain protein rich foods.
There are an abundance of naturally occurring high protein foods that are available to us. Chicken, pork and many others forms of meat, nuts, seeds, yogurts, beans, lentils and even eggs all have a high content. There really is something for everyone to get the desired intake they require.
Are there other ways in which we can get it? Yes you will be happy to know that you do not have to sit down to a plate of chicken before you go to the gym.
