Protein Foods For Healthy Meals

Posted Nov 30 2010 6:09pm

Whenever you hear somebody give you their latest weight loss tips to help increase your fat loss results, you can guarantee that there will be something different given out each time as the latest and greatest fad that will “definitely work for you”.

Whether it’s the latest in those terrible diet shakes , or a great eat healthy tip like choose more protein foods, there needs to be a little be some more guidelines when planning your healthy meals. So let’s get into it a little further.

The one tip that is rarely ever spoken about however is to ensure that you eatprotein with each and every single meal.

Why is protein so beneficial?

There are a number of reasons but let me start from the top.

The most important reason why you should be having some type of protein with each and every meal that you eat each day is because it increases your body’s sense of fullness.

What does this mean? Well, to put it simply, you will not be as hungry after eating something that has protein as the major ingredient.

You will feel fuller longer. Compare this to if you eat something that is highly processed and full of sugars like potato chips, especially if they are salty!

Your body will be craving them and without a doubt you will be feeling hungry again almost as soon as you finish your mouthful and you will want to eat more and more without ever getting that sense of fullness until you have stuffed yourself silly.

Protein is known as the body’s building block which means that protein foods are used to repair your muscles after training and exercise.

By having protein you will be helping repair those muscles that you have exhausted during your session and it will help you emerge leaner and stronger as a result.

Now that you know two reasons why protein is essential to your daily diet requirements, what are the best sources for you to get this protein?

Glad you asked! The best sources are those that are fresh and natural. Good examples include lean meats like turkey and chicken breast; lean red meats are also a good source.

Eggs, nuts, seeds, lentils and all of the varieties of beans are also all great ways to get your protein intake each day and ensure you eat healthy.

One of my favourite protein foods is Greek yoghurt because this has little human interference.

Just read the ingredients list of Greek yoghurt compared to normal yoghurt and you will see about 4 ingredients in the Greek variety and a list as long as your arm in the normal yoghurt.

Greek yoghurt is great because there is hardly any carbohydrates in it compared to the normal yoghurt varieties, which means a whole lot less sugars.

Being a vegetarian is no excuse as you saw some great examples above that are vegetarian options.

Protein is an essential component of every meal that you have from breakfast right through to your after dinner snack.

Once you realise the importance that protein plays in your weight loss role, only then will you be able to finally achieve the body that you deserve and rightly desire.
