Sources of Lean Eatin' Foods

Hey guys, I was just reading Lean Eatin’ I and II by JB and had a few quick questions. I was wondering what clean foods I could eat that would give me the following:

milk protein isolates

whey-casein blends (only in shakes maybe)

what are some low-GI fruits?

EPA/DHA

Thanks guys, really appreciate it! :smiley:

First two, in shakes naturally. Milk protein = whey + casein. Isolate is just more concentrated protein powder than concentrace for example.

Straight from google: http://www.gifoundation.com/GI%20Food%20List.htm

at the bottom you’ll find a list for fruits too. These have high GI:

Medley of Fruits, fruit juice, Ceres, Watermelon, fresh
Litchi, fruit juice, Ceres
Litchi, tinned in syrup

EPA & DHA is found from fishoils.

For milk protein isolates, simply look for isolate in the name of the protein powders. It should be the first (if not only) protein ingredient in the ingredient list.

Whey Casein blends would be like Metabolic Drive (Low-Carb or regular. Not Metabolc Drive Complete).

Low GI fruits would be berries (strawberries, cherries, raspberries, blueberries, etc.), apples, oranges and such. I do believe that bananas are a high GI fruit though. And generally the darker the berries, the better as far as vitamins and such are concerned.

Epa/Dha would be fatty fish or fish oil or Flameout.

Awesome guys. Thanks soo much.
