Best foods to build lean muscle

Posted on 9 December, 2020 at 17:15 Comments comments (2)

You can increase your muscle-building potential by adding these 5 nutrient-dense foods to your diet. Pick your favorites, or follow our one-week muscle-building plan, and make your calories work for you. 

1. BEEF (FROM GRASS-FED CATTLE)

Beef is important for building lean muscle due to its protein content, cholesterol, zinc, B vitamins and iron content.

2. BEETS

A good source of betaine, also known as trimethylglycine, this nutrient not only supports liver and joint health, but also has been shown in clinical research to increase muscle strength and power.

3. ORANGES

Another good fruit that can actually help to boost muscle growth, strength and endurance, especially when eaten before workouts.

 

4. CANTALOUPE

Due to its relatively low fructose content, this melon is one of the few fruits that is actually a fast-digesting carb. That makes it a good carb to have first thing in the morning after a long night of fasting and one of the few good fruits to eat after workouts.

 

5. COTTAGE CHEESE

Rich in casein protein, cottage cheese is a great go-to protein source, especially before bed.

 

Casein protein is the slowest-digesting protein you can eat, so it prevents catabolism while you fast during the night.


FAST WEIGHT LOSS

Posted on 7 December, 2020 at 17:10 Comments comments (4)

With the gorgeous sunny weather we currently have, I know for one, it certainly got me thinking about summer, summer clothes and shifting those unwanted few extra pounds.



We can turn to panick mode, and look for fast results, however If it sounds too good to be true, then it usually is – and in the case of weight loss products and plans, it sounds too good to be true then it more than likely is.

Let's look at some of the scams and fads designed specifically to target our desires and fears.


  • “No exercise or dieting needed!”
  • “Drop a dress size in a week!”
  • “Lose 21 pounds in 21 days!”
  • “Double your weight loss with our miracle pill!”
  • “Wrap, and watch the inches melt!”
  • “Absorbs fat!”


You have likely seen these claims too.

The top scams and fads that I see regularly in my social media or email are:

  • Body wraps
  • Meal replacement shakes
  • Fat blocking pills
  • Herbal supplements
  • Weight loss coffees/teas and juices


Meal replacement shakes: I have worked one to one with clients where they have occaisionally admited the thought of not having to cook, or think about food – sounds very appealing. Which is exactly why I love working with Low Cal Meals Delivered as they offer the healthy solution to this very problem!


Let's look at the nutritional content of meal replacement shakes, sugar or sweeteners, tend to be the first ingredient on the list of ingredients; they are designed to give a quick burst of energy so the user feels great…and then need another one a few hours later to keep going, leaving blood sugar levels unbalanced and nicely lines the pockets of the sellers and manufacturers.


Then you have the ‘pills that make you poo your pants’…not a marketing claim, but a rather nasty side affect. Consuming anything that changes the way in which your body metabolises food leads to all sorts of issues – bloating, gas, diarrhoea and the inability to control your body.  Not only do they cause all sorts of unpleasantness, but an important health risk is that they can prevent your body absorbing our fat soluble vitamins, Vitamin A, D, E & K.

With herbal ‘diet’ teas and weight loss supplements the main ingredient in many diet teas is caffeine, a diuretic which leads to water loss. So you are not losing fat, but water which is later replaced. 

Ephedra, an ingredient in many of these supplements, which has been banned as it was closely linked chemically to speed, or methamphetamine, and caused insomnia, tremors and seizures, high blood pressure, strokes, irregular heartbeat, heart attacks, and even death. Kava is another ingredient which has been banned following links to severe liver injury. 

This is a very scary thought if people are buying weight loss supplements from unknown sources or over the internet.




I get that when we want to shift a few pounds or more that we want to lose it quickly.

We are all limited with our time, life is hard and we want it to be easy.

We are forever being sold stuff to help save time, money, space…and given the choice of a quicker option, it is very tempting.


So save your money, most of these fads and scams come with the caveat that they work well in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise.


Finally, let’s not forget that most weight issues can stem from emotions and behaviours…how is a pill or body wrap is going to help you address these areas?


Dont waste any more time or money and look at the tasty and nutritionally well balanced meals from www.lowcalmealselivered.ie




Successful weight loss comes down to overall calories in, plus the nutritional quality of food is also important for our overall health, but consistecy plays a huge part in fat loss too.


Enjoy the rest of the Bank Holiday weekend

HOW TO: Stick to Your Eating Plan While Travelling

Posted on 6 December, 2020 at 16:45 Comments comments (3)

With summer holidays whether in Ireland or abroad around the corner, it's time to plan ahead to help us stick to our healthier routines.




Let’s face it. We have been conditioned to be a society based on ease and convenience. We have become used to a grab and go mentality when it comes to eating.

Deli sandwiches and hot counters, prepackaged sandwiches and meals and not forgetting chocolate and crisps at every corner without trying to look too hard for it, makes it easiest to eat processed unhealthy foods rather than keep yourself on track. It can feel like the cards are sometimes stacked against you, especially if you spend time on the road for work or travelling.


Though it may at first thought seem daunting to try and travel with food, the reality of it is that not only is it easier than trying to find healthy items on the go, it is the most convenient option there is once you are properly prepared.

If you are travelling by car you can very easily take all of your food with you.

Investing in a good cooler bag that is durable, strong, roomy and keeps food cold for extended periods of time is ideal for travelling. Whether its travel for a weekend, to backpacking,or a day at the office, this will ensure that you should not stray too far from your nutritional goals, especially if we leave it to chance the options that are available to us when travelling which are more likely to be highly processed unhealthier foods.


High Protein Portable Snacks

  • Grab some hard boiled eggs. These make an incredible protein packed snack. If whole eggs do not fit into your daily macros, snack on the egg whites and toss the yolk. Each egg white contains 3.6grams of protein and virtually no fat.
  • Fat Free Greek Yogurt (125g individual pots) – add in 1 cup of berries and a tablespoon of almonds for flavor and texture.
  • Protein Bars – These come in a huge assortment of flavors. They are nutritionally balanced and can keep your energy as a great occasional meal substitute. However choose carefully some are better than others, watch out for the ingredients and nutritional information.
  • Nuts – Cashews, Almonds, Macadamia Nuts, Pecans, Walnuts – all are healthy fats and high in protein. However be careful if travelling on public transport or air planes with nuts for fellow passengers who may have a nut allergy.
  • Protein Shake – Pre portion shaker cups at home, toss them in your bag. Just add water and shake! This is a great way to make sure you meet your protein requirements daily with no hassle. Keep in mind that shakes are a supplement. Your main source of protein needs to come from whole foods.
  • Rice Cakes with Nut butter or Hummus – Rice cakes can satisfy that need to crunch without extra calories, fats or preservatives and are naturally gluten free.


Once you return from your travels don't forget the easiest way to get back on track is placing an order with Low Cal Meals Delivered to ensure you are straight back into eating well balanced tasty meals, ready for you just to take from fridge and heat in minutes.



Travel is inevitable. Don’t let a change to your daily routine get in the way of your nutrition goals. When you learn to incorporate the tips and tricks into your travel, life gets easier. So grab a bag, add your high protein snacks, an easy way to help stick to your healthier eating routine.

THE DREADED WEIGHING SCALES

Posted on 5 December, 2020 at 17:05 Comments comments (2)

How much do you weigh, and why?

Something Ive been talking a bit about this week is the fact body weight is about so much more than just fat.

And how muscle, fat, bone, and water all play an important part in what number we see on the scales each week.    



Body Composition

Our weight comes from:


Muscle: 30-55% of body weight

Fat: 10-30% of body weight

Water (not in muscle or fat): 10-25%

Bone: 15% of body weight

Organs, other tissues: 10-15%


Muscle weighs more than Fat



Muscle is more metabolically active than fat, meaning it burns more calories when you are at rest (Sounds like the dream right, but calories while watching TV?) which is why you want to increase and maintain a high percent muscle on your body for both men and women.


Muscle takes up approximately four-fifths as much space as fat.

Two people may be the same

  • age, 
  • height, 
  • weight, but the person with a higher body fat percentage will wear a larger clothes size. 

A lean person with more muscle might weight more than somebody who’s not so lean, because muscle is denser than fat (like iron is denser than water).


Make sure never to confuse “weight loss” with “fat loss” if you’re building muscle at the same time. 


Water Weight

Your body is made of about 50-65% water, so water certainly does account for a large portion of your weight.



You can drop a few pounds quickly by losing water weight and more importantly any type of significant dehydration is unhealthy and not sustainable.


If you are someone who retains water, which can be from

  • Certain medications
  • Carboyhdrates
  • Part of Pre menstral Syndrome
  • Eating processed foods with excess salt and containing MSG
  • Caffeine
  • Alcohol

A couple of things you can do to help your body with water retention are reduce any of the above mentioned in your diet and increase your water intake and ensure half plate of lunch and dinner includes greens, so that your body is more likely to release its excess fluid.



How fat affects Your Overall Weight

Body fat has less density than muscle and bone. It also burns less calories at rest than muscle does.

Measuring Body Weight with Scales Only

This is the reason why we will often not lose any weight despite working out hard and eating well. We jump on the scales and are horrified that we have not lost any weight!

The Dreaded Weighing Scales

But what the scales don’t show is the loss of fat and the growth of muscle. You may have burnt off 3lbs of fat but gained say 2lb of muscle – the scales is showing you have lost just 1lb but in reality, on a weight loss programme what you are trying to lose is fat! So you have actually lost 3lb of fat (even if you don’t know it by looking at the total number on the scales!!). Unless you have a body fat/muscle analysis scales you are not likely to know what your losses and gains are – so the best way of measuring this is by taking both your weight in lbs. on the scales and also taking measurements with a measuring tape.




We all know that person who is slim and seem to be able to get away with eating more, this again has a lot to do with muscle and fat percentages.

So lets compare 2 people,

Person A is very muscular and weighs around 9 stone.

Person B also weighs 9 stone but has less muscle and a higher percentage of body fat. Even sitting side by side all day, doing the same tasks – person A will actually burn MORE calories than person B. The simple explanation for this is that muscle burns fat. If you are more muscular your body will automatically be consistently burning more each hour than a person with less muscle.


If you want to track your weightloss progress I sugguest take measurements on both the scales & with the measuring tape.


DON’T COMPARE YOURSELF WITH OTHERS – EACH PERSON’S GENETIC MAKE UP AND MUSCLE MASS IS DIFFERENT!


How to build muscle

Check out my top tips on how much protein you really need here in my previous blog post

http://www.lowcalmealsdelivered.ie/apps/blog/show/45144085-how-much-protein-do-you-really-need-


An optimal muscle-building diet must contain adequate protein.


For best results, in addition to doing weekly weight training workouts, follow these four nutrition guidelines:

  • Consume adequate protein daily, at every meal, and ensure that you’re consuming a complete protein after each workout.
  • Take in adequate daily calories, free apps like MyFitnessPal can give you a rough guide or seek advice on on your daily adequate calories from someone qualifed in Nutrition.
  • Select whole-food carbohydrate sources like sweet potato or rice sources to also replenish muscle.


LowCal MealsDelivered


Another great option to easily ensure you are obtaining sufficient muscle building protein consistently into your diet daily is to order from Lowcal MealsDelivered.


For example from the Muscle Gain & Recovery Section by choosing

  • Breakfast: Overnight Flavoured Oats 18g Protein
  • Lunch: Cajun Chicken with Cous Cous 40g Protein
  • Dinner: Chilli Con Carne with Rice 58g Protein

Total Daily Protein Intake: 116g Protein


Simply order before 9 p.m. on Thursday evenings to have your weekly meals delivered to your door by the following Saturday or Sunday, or 9 p.m. Monday evening for Wednesday delivery, then simply Heat, Eat and Enjoy.


Most importantly Keep losing weight, keep burning fat, keep building muscle and keep working towards your Ideal Health and Weight Goals!

HOW MUCH PROTEIN DO YOU REALLY NEED?

Posted on 4 December, 2020 at 18:05 Comments comments (1)

While most of us are familiar of the importance of protein when it comes to weightloss and muscle gain.

Protein is essential for to every cell in the body: for growth of hair, skin, blood, hormones. Protein is needed for repair and growth and helps us feel full.





I'm a fan of obtaining my protein from food sources, but I do like to add Protein Powder to Green Smoothies for Breakfasts and quick post workout fuel, as great as Green Veg Smoothies are, they are low on protein, this will mean having something like a Green Smoothie for breakfast with added protein powder will help keep me fuller for longer.


My absolute favourite go to breakfast or post workout 'added protein' smoothie which Serves 2:

  • 1 Ripe Avocado, skin and stone removed
  • 1 Courgette
  • 1 Slice Fresh Pineapple
  • 400mls of milk of choice
  • a good handful of spinach
  • 1 tablespoon of Protein Powder (Protein Powders discussed below)
Add all the ingredients, to a high speed blender and blend until smooth. Add to a glass or a bowl and add toppings of choice, I like fresh blueberries, milled flaxseeds, flaked almonds, add whatever you like or whatever you have handy. Trust me this is a super tasty way of getting 4-5 servings of veg and fruit in one sitting!



What is Protein Powder?

Protein powder is concentrated protein extracted from milk or plant based such as Hemp/Rice/Pea/Soya, and then turned into a powder.

Do you Find some Protein Powders hard to digest and cause bloating?

This may not be the case but if so, first step, read the ingredients label on your protein powder, is the 'type' of protein the first ingredient on the list for example whey/hemp/pea etc.

Are there any additives and sweeteners added to your Protein Powders, by switching to a quality plant based protein powder may help reduce bloating you experience. Ask in any health food shop for a quality, broad range amino acid content in a Plant Based Protein Powder. Plant Based Proteins are not complete protein sources, in other words the don't contain all the essential amino acids in other words amino acids the body cannot produce itself. Some Plant Based Protein Powders may combine protein sources such as Pea and Hemp Protein Powders.


Whether you are conscious of including more protein into your daily diet to help muscle gain and/or help weight loss,  it is important to spread your total daily protein intake throughout the day. 


How much Protein do you Really Need?




The minimum daily protein requirement is 0.8g of Protein per kg in body weight, this would be for someone not very active, for example a person weighing 65kg (over 10 Stone who is not very active requires a minimum of 52g of Protein per day.


For someone who is active and depending on the level of activity the daily Protein Requirement ranges between 1.2g - 1.7g of protein per kg of body weight.

Take the same weight of a 65kg person who trains 3-4 times per week, their daily Protein Requirement is 78g to 110g of protein daily.


Types of Protein Powder

1. Whey: Most popular and typically the cheapest available. This is digested fast and effective post workout. Whey is derived from milk, so choose a different option if you have a dairy intolerance.

2. Casein: Is isolated from cows milk, it is broken down by the body more slowly than whey, and can be good to keep those hunger pangs at bay.

3. Hemp: Comes from ground hemp seeds, packed with Viatmin E, Fibre iron and essential fatty acids.

4. Rice: Yep you guessed it coming from ground rice and is easily digested so a good plant based option post workout or if you need to avoid whey.

5. Pea: This is made from yellow split peas.This is a good option to help keep you feeling fuller for linger should you need to or choose to avoid dairy.


Finally obtaining protein from food sources are always better than supplementing but hopefully this guide will help should you choose to add protein powder into your diet.



A great option to easily ensure you are obtaining sufficient daily protein and consistently is to order from Lowcal MealsDelivered.

For example from the Muscle Gain & Recovery Section by choosing

Breakfast: Overnight Flavoured Oats 18g Protein

Lunch: Cajun Chicken with Cous Cous 40g Protein

Dinner: Chilli Con Carne with Rice 58g Protein

Total Daily Protein Intake: 116g Protein

On this LowCal MealsDelivered example of a days food there is no requirement to add protein supplements or any of the high protein meals available on their menu.

Simply order before 8 p.m. on Thursday evenings to have your weekly meals delivered to your door by the following Saturday or Sunday, or 8 p.m. Monday evening for Wednesday delivery, then simply Heat, Eat and Enjoy.

HOW TO STAY ON TRACK WHEN EATING OUT

Posted on 3 December, 2020 at 17:55 Comments comments (2)

LowCal MealsDelivered have got you covered for 5 days out of the week with our meal plans, so here are a few tips to help you stay on track when dining out.



Eating healthy and staying on track can get particularly tricky when it comes to eating out or going for drinks with friends. Restaurants tend to serve food in larger portions than we would typically serve at home, as well as the possibility of some cooks being a little heavy handed with the oil, salt and sugar to help make the food taste different to what you would make at home.

So is it possible to have an enjoyable night out, without compromising your healthy routine? Here are few tips to keep your weight goals and health in check during a night out!



1.Research Now, Eat Later:



Take 15 minutes and look up menus in advance that offer

  • Vegetables think green & think salads or stirfries
  • Slow Release Carbohydrates - trying to swap white rice to brown rice, white potatoes to sweet potato, noodles to vegetable noodles like courgetti.
  • lean protein - a simple way to remember this is to think of the animals with the least legs - fish to chicken to beef, fish being leanest.


Make sure to take a look at your chosen restaurants online menu beforehand, no online menu give them a call before you book and decide beforehand what you’re going to choose so you’re not tempted to get a less healthy option.


2. Don’t Drink Your Dinner:




Except in moderation or on special occasions - skip the pre dinner cocktails. Beer and other cocktails are high in calories and sugar- and could have you drinking more of your dinner than eating it! Not to mention It could also weaken your chances to ordering a healthier menu choice. Better alcohol choices in terms of lower calories are clear spirits like vodka or gin with soda water or sparkling water and fresh lemon or lime or light versions of beer or cider.


3. Skip the Bread Basket:




Instead of a bread, start with a salad before getting to your main meal and ask the server to ditch the bread basket. The high fibre and water content of the vegetables will get you over while you wait for your main course. Having a salad can also decrease your total calorie intake at the end of the day if you are looking to go down a pound or two it is about calories in versus calories out, Remember, iof weight loss is your goal, it takes approximately 3,500 calorie deficit across a week to decrease one pound fat. 


4. Know Your Menu Lingo:



There are a lot of words on menus to describe dishes that have “hidden” meanings, and give some insight as to what might be on your plate or in your dish! Here are some that you might want to stray away from when ordering:

  • Fried or deep fried or braised
  • Creamy or creamed
  • Battered
  • Basted
  • Cheesy or “au gratin”

Instead, look for these terms when ordering:

  • Grilled
  • Boiled
  • Roasted
  • Steamed
  • Smoked

5. Enjoy Your Meal:




Savour and enjoy the meal- especially if it’s not often that you get to relax and let someone else do the cooking for you. Turn off the phone, enjoy the company, take in the atmosphere, and really try to savor every bite!

5 TIPS TO HELP YOU STAY ON TRACK OVER THE FESTIVE PERIOD

Posted on 2 December, 2020 at 16:55 Comments comments (1)

The 'Ah sure look, it's Christmas, I'm going to enjoy myself' mindset is already creeping in. Can you feel it?


It can be hard to stay on track at this time of year whether you are trying to maintain or trying to loose weight with temptation all around and plenty of socialising.

Here are 5 Top Tips so you can enjoy the festive season and stay on track with you weight goals.


1. HYDRATE, HYDRATE HYDRATE


For the remainder of December make a conscious effort to start the day with water, swap your morning cup of tea or coffee for warm water and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. This will give you a cleansing and healing start to the day, helping digestion. Also by spreading water intake throughout the day and ideally drinking 1-2 glasses before each meal. This can also help reduce water retention and over eating from the fact of simply being dehydrated.


2. THINK GREEN



Yes, our mama's knew best on this one, 'Eat your Greens'! Greens are full of goodness, plenty of fibre and very few calories and should be eaten in abundance. Think of the ideal plate with half your plate covered in vegetables mostly green.

For example

Breakfast: scrambled eggs with spinach, tomatoes, and courgette.

Lunch: Lowcal MealsDelivered Wholesome Chicken Salad or Broccoli Soup are packed with greens, and this is an easy way to get them into your diet in run up to Christmas and help keep you on track.

Dinner: A simple stir fry with added broccoli, green peppers, mange tout and asparagus with protein of choice and simple flavorings like half a teaspoon of the following dried herbs: ground coriander, ground cumin, ground cayenne pepper, 1-2 cloves minced garlic, a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, a tablespoon of soy sauce and if you like sweetness a tablespoon of honey with a little bit of water makes an easy and great tasting clean stirfry sauce.

Alternatively Lowcal Mealsdelivered Buffalo Chicken with seasoned Sweet Potato and vegetables is another healthy and convenient option to get those greens into your daily meals.


3. STAY REGULAR

Never let yourself get hangry! That's when that box of leftover Christmas Chocolate Sweets will look sooo tempting!



Also avoid banking calories before a night out to use for alcohol instead.

What you could aim to do is try to get in an extra hour walk or extra hour in the gym and reduce carbohydrate intake the day beforehand opting for a small amount of quality, slow releasing carbohydrates like sweet potato instead of white potato or chips and ditching the white bread, white pasta and sugary foods ahead of a night out.

The key is to eat every 3-4 hours and have protein with every meal or snack, this will help keep blood sugars level, the protein will keep you feeling fuller for longer. Try to stick to the same meal times each day, even during the busy out of routine days, your body will thank you for it!

For example breakfast @ 8.00, mid morning snack @ 11.00, lunch @ 2.00, dinner @ 5.30 and another snack @ 8.30, making sure you have plenty of water throughout the day too.


4. KEEP MOVING



As with the eating tip mentioned above, sticking with the same meal times on out of routine days, stick with the same training or exercise pattern that you have been doing prior to the festive season, and aiming to increase on days prior to social events.

Why not download an audio book, Audible is a great app with all the latest books available for a small monthly fee, which is a great way to get that extra run or walk or session in the gym done without even realising.

If you prefer music make sure you have a great playlist with adequate time to complete your training/exercise without getting bored or having to look for more music.


5. ORDER WITH LOWCAL MEALSDELIVERED

Why not take off some of the added pressure to have healthy and tasty meals prepared and ready by ordering weekly meals from Lowcal Mealsdelivered. Choose from 5 dinners, 5 lunches and 5 breakfasts from as little as €16/17 per day for the Women's Meal Plans and Men's Meal Plans, choose from a variety of tasty, chef prepared fresh foods.

Get your order in by 8 p.m. Thursday evenings to have your meals delivered the following Saturday or Sunday.

Note: Get your order in before Thursday 4th January for our next delivery date in 2018 for Saturday 6th January and Sunday 7th January.

All you need to do is simply reheat and enjoy, giving to added time to enjoy the festive period, saving you time on supermarket shopping, preparing and cooking your meals not to mention the cleaning up after cooking.

Why not take a look at the Menu here on our website and email your order to [email protected]
