tony gonzalez

Have you ever wondered how in his 16 NFL seasons, tight end, Tony Gonzalez has produced a Hall of Fame resume, with 1,154 catches, 13,391 yards and 96 touchdowns. Well the following list below shows how he makes his shake to receive his daily protein intake.

Prepare the following items in a blender or processor and mix on high until fully blended:

  • One scoop of protein powder
  • One cup of organic milk
  • One cup of frozen berries
  • A handful of spinach leaves

You also need to make sure you are getting enough calories throughout the day to promote muscle growth. Athletes looking to add muscle mass should take in 24 to 27 calories per pound of body weight.

·  Sedentary person: 0.4 gms/lb; 60 gms/150 lb person

·  Recreational exerciser, adult: 0.5 – 0.75, 75 -112

·  Competitive athlete, adult: 0.6 – 0.9, 90 – 135

·  Growing teenage athlete: 0.8 – 0.9, 120 – 135

·  Dieting athlete, reduced calories: 0.8 – 0.9, 120 – 135

·  Maximum for all healthy athletes: 0.9 gram/lb (2 gm/kg)

Losing Weight with Protein


Nowadays it’s all about counting calories to be effective in losing weight. Many women think of protein as high calorie or fattening foods. Although this is not the case many hard core calorie counters know that most proteins will cost more calories then fruits or vegetable will.

Best sources of protein (fish, meat, dairy, and beans) aren’t as quick or convenient as most carbs or even fruits and veggies. Protein isn’t one of those on the go type of foods and if they are they are usually fried or unhealthy. This may explain why women between the ages of 20 and 40 do not get their recommended daily allowance (RDA) of protein.

Consider this:

  • A Johns Hopkins University study found that a diet in which roughly a quarter of the calories (about 60 percent more than the recommended 10 to 15 percent) come from lean protein sources reduced blood pressure, LDL (“bad”) cholesterol levels, and triglycerides better than a traditional higher-carb diet. Other research finds that diets rich in protein can help prevent obesity, osteoporosis, and diabetes.

The Power of Protein

  • As soon as you consume protein your body is reaping the benefits. High-protein foods take more work to digest, metabloize, and use which means more calories are being burned while processing them. They also stay in your stomach for a longer period of time so your are fuller longer.
  • In a study published in Nutrition Metabolism, dieters who increased their protein intake to 30 percent of their diet ate nearly 450 fewer calories a day and lost about 11 pounds over the 12-week study without employing any other dietary measures.

Pump It Up

  • Experts advise consuming between 0.5 grams and 1.0 grams of protein per pound of your body weight. That’s 70 grams to 140 grams a day for a 140-pound woman. Skew on the high end if you’re very active, and on the low end if you’re trying to lose weight. If both apply, shoot for an amount somewhere in the middle—around 130 grams.

Even more important:

  • Aim to get at least 30 of those grams at breakfast, (that’s roughly the amount you’ll get from two eggs and a cup of cottage cheese.) After fasting all night, your body is running on empty and may start drawing on muscle tissue for fuel if you don’t replenish its protein stores first thing in the a.m. Protein-rich breakfasts can help regulate your appetite all day.

Not all proteins are created equal:

  • Nuts, whole grains, and veggies technically count, they don’t contain all nine of the amino acids your body needs in order to build lean muscle. Those that do—known as complete proteins—are typically found in animal products. Your best flat-belly bets are skinless white chicken or turkey, seafood, low-fat dairy, pork tenderloin, and lean beef. All of these foods have just one to three grams of fat per 50-calorie serving.

Vegetarians need to be a little more creative.

  • Pairing incomplete proteins—peanut butter on whole-wheat bread, or brown rice and beans, for example—can pinch-hit for complete ones. Or nosh on complete proteins such as tofu, hemp seed, buckwheat, and quinoa. The beauty of protein is that with so many tasty options, getting your daily dose is a simple pleasure.

Protein Supplements Are Boost To Athletes



Designer Whey and Nitro-Tech Hardcore protein products are among several on the market that benefit endurance athletes, strength trainers and weight lifters. At weight rooms, jogging tracks and football fields across the country, the path to athletic success is often littered with protein bar wrappers and empty protein powder canisters.

Anyone who’s serious about exercise needs to be serious about protein, says Richard Kreider, chairman of the department of health and kinesiology and director of the Exercise & Sport Nutrition Laboratory at Texas A&M University in College Station.

The Truth About Protein

protein stack

Everyone—not just muscleheads—can benefit from the quick hit of amino acids provided by a protein supplement, bar, or shake. Whey protein is also the best source of leucine, an amino acid that behaves more like a hormone in your body. Casein, another milk protein sold in supplement form, provides a slower-absorbing but more sustained source of amino acids, making it a great choice for a snack before you hit the sack.

Protein in a mass-building or get-lean diet is a lot like a mutual fund or a 401(k) plan: You know you need it, but you’re not always sure which one to pick. There are simply so many of them. But just as diversifying your investment portfolio is crucial to long-term wealth, so too is including a variety of different proteins in your daily meal plan. Such as protein bars, whey protein, casein protein, milk protein,  and ready-to-drink (RTDs) are a few examples.
