When it comes to protein, you’ll most likely hear the term “biological value” (or BV) at some point. The biological value of a hen’s egg is fixed at 100. The higher the biological value of a certain food, the more similar the protein contained is to our own body’s protein, and the easier it can be transformed into endogenous protein.
A few examples for dishes with an ideal BV:
Casseroles with egg and potatoes
Meat patties with mashed potatoes
Chili con carne
Chili sin carne

We all have wondered when will we start seeing the results of our workout! Well, consistency is the Key. Generally, you can expect to notice results after two weeks. Your posture will improve and you’ll feel more muscle tone. Few suggestions to help you to reach your goals are: 1. Workout Regularly and Continuously: Consistency is the Key to Growth. Invest sufficient time and energy in your training and make a realistic plan for the scope of your program. There are always interruptions, but try to avoid them with careful planning.
