The best high-protein healthy recipes to fuel your day


Protein! Your body needs it, and if you’re on a fitness journey, you’re going to need a little more than most.

But you can’t live on protein shakes alone, your body needs real food. Whether it’s a weight loss meal plan or muscle building meal plan, you’re going to find high-quality protein in the Emily Skye FIT menu. Yes, even for vegan diets! This meal plan is all about healthy, whole foods that you can enjoy, leaving you satisfied and happy.

Why do you need protein?

Protein is so important for a fitness journey because it helps with building muscle and post-workout recovery (especially with my muscle-building resistance training!) It also helps you feel fuller for longer, so you’re less likely to overeat – which is extra important if you’re trying to lose weight and need to keep up a calorie deficit.

If you don’t get enough protein and you’re trying to lose weight, your body can also start breaking down muscle, which is bad news for your strength and muscle gains.

The recommended amount of protein the average person should get each day is around 0.8-1.0 grams of protein per kilogram (0.01 oz per lb) of your body weight. If you’re training, you might need closer to 1.5g of protein per kilogram (0.02 oz per lb). Space your protein throughout the day, don’t just scarf it all down in one go.

Now, let’s get you fueled up!

Forget endless chicken breast and broccoli for growing muscle, or obsessing over a calorie counter to lose weight: the FIT meal plan is perfectly balanced for you. All you have to do is follow the recipes!
