Chicken Breast Additives
The most common practice is to add:
- Salt in the form of table salt or potassium phosphate
- Chicken broth
- In some cases, corn syrup or other sugars
Result: you are getting 80-85% chicken and 15-20% salt water. Watch the label as companies are required list the chicken as “seasoned” or “water added”. Buy ONLY chicken, skip the additives.
A label saying “minimum XX% protein” is because of the water being added.
Fuel the Hunger
Jacques has created a system called Fuel the Hunger, a blueprint on eating well for performance. The program is designed to help athletes find the foods and eating pattern that works best for them to improve training results and reach peak performance levels. A better choice of foods and a plan of when to eat them will maximize energy levels, muscle efficiency and mental clarity so they are not sacrificing critical position to a weaker opponent. The knowledge gained will help the athlete to transition to a healthy, life-long pattern of eating that will keep them vibrant and reduce the risk of serious illness.
