Snack on deli meat 

6 Unique Diet Hacks That Helps Keep Me ShreddedOne of my best-kept secrets to shredding is snacking on deli meat.

Why do I do this? Because it’s lean and convenient.

Now in no way do I replace this for fresh meat. If I can eat freshly cooked meat all day, I would! But my schedule doesn’t allow for that.

Use alternative peanut butter6 Unique Diet Hacks That Helps Keep Me Shredded

If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ll know that peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are a staple of mine.

Regardless if I’m shredding or lean bulking, I must have a peanut butter jelly sandwich. It just keeps me sane. It keeps me from going crazy in a calorie deficit.

So when I came across peanut butter powder, I immediately had to buy it.

Peanut butter powder provides the following macros:

2 Tablespoons

50 calories

Protein: 5g

Carbs: 5g

Fat: 1.5g

Vs the traditional Peanut butter spread which provides these macros:

2 Tablespoons

188 calories

Protein: 8g

Carbs: 6.3g

Comparing the two you’ll notice the peanut butter powder provides significantly fewer calories per serving. The main reason being that the peanut powder is stripped from all the fats.

No, that would be crazy.

I still incorporate the spread every so often and I’ll utilize it even more so when I’m lean bulking.

This is the peanut butter powder that I use.
