We underestimate the importance of protein in our daily lives.
Contrary to popular belief.
Protein won’t turn you into Arnold Schwarzenegger.
It won’t give you massive muscles.
What it will do however.
Is help keep you full.
You’re far less likely to overeat if you consume a good level of protein.
If you’re active…
Which I hope that you are.
You’ll use protein to help your muscles and body recover from exercise.
Meaning you can train sooner.
And more efficiently.
This is all easier said than done, however.
Protein is a difficult thing to get into our diet.
Which is why foods such as protein shakes exist etc.
(No, honestly, they won’t make you big).
So where can we find good protein sources?
Meat, fish, soya, eggs and dairy are just a few good ways to increase protein.
Also like I mentioned above, protein shakes and bars are another good way to get protein into our diets for minimal calories.
So I want you to make sure you are consciously trying to increase the protein in your diet.
It will definitely aid your weight loss goals.
Here’s a list of good protein sources to help you next time you do a food shop:
- Egg Whites
- Chicken Breast
- Lean Ground Beef (93% or higher)
- Lean Ground Turkey (93% or higher)
- Fat-free Cottage Cheese
- Greek Yogurt
- Protein Bars
There you go!
There are so many ways to incorporate protein into our diet.
Give it a go.
Your body will thank you.
