Who’s ready to kick off week 4 of our 100 Daily Challenges to Lighten Up? I am!!! This week will focus on Protein! Always a relevant topic for people in the heart of beef country! So let’s get cracking!

#22: Okay, who can guess what’ I’m going to start with? PORTION SIZE! Portion size, portion size, portion size!!!! It’s vital! I serving size of meat/protein is about the size and thickness of a deck of cards. Thanks to the restaurant industry, we’ve come to believe that an entire 12oz steak is an appropriate portion size, and it isn’t! Check out the article from “Men’s Health” about other handy comparisons for portion size!

And, as always, check out our Lighten Up “Resources” page for more about protein!
