Now you may be looking at this title thinking…
“Well, I don’t really have ANYTHING in my cupboard.”
Exactly. That is why M.A. is here to help you become more fit just by making a few additions to your very kitchen.
This isn’t going to be a list of foods that you should start putting on your grocery list. Your kitchen isn’t just for food. Your kitchen, I will have you know, is the foundation for which all shit hits the fan when trying to take your fitness to a new level.
It can also be the seed to your success.
Take a look at these 3 Things that Every Guy Needs to Have in Their Cupboard…
#1. Protein Powder
Easier said than done right?
There are about 9,000 different brands and types of protein to get based on your goals.
If you want to get the most ‘bang for your buck’ choose a protein that has a mixed blend of both whey and casein.
This will ensure both a rapid and slow release of amino acids into your muscle tissue throughout the day—a slow “trickle” if you will. If you are someone who is working out or just “on-the-go” most of the day this can serve as both a meal replacement or a post workout replenishment.
“Sweet, I love cinnamon buns.”
Easy pal–I am talking about the spice.
Cinnamon is known for its effect on insulin, it increases sensitivity to it.
Put a dash in your coffee, oatmeal, or in your morning shake. Increasing sensitivity to insulin can help keep a balanced and steady release which can hinder or even lead to fat loss.
#3. 1/2 c. Measuring Cup
You had no idea did you?
My reasoning behind this is geared toward carbohydrate consumption.
Carbohydrates are easily abused and over consumed.
I found that measuring a half cup of most complex carbs such as oatmeal, brown rice or certain fruits helps me to control my portions.
Now, I am not one for measuring everything—just for the food items that require more “eyeballing” than others.
Try it out—I guarantee you will start to see the difference within two weeks.
So their you have it fans!
There are many more things that should be in a “fit guy’s” cupboard, but just like a fine wine it takes time, care and a big wooden barrel—or in this case a cupboard.
Take these three for starters and build your cupboard up. Maybe you already have a “healthy” cupboard. Well, we want to know about it.
