Proteins That Can Get You to Your Weight Loss Goal

As you begin your weight loss journey, the first hurdle you come to is the boring foods that you have found yourself consuming. After sticking to the same old for a week, your weight is not moving as fast as you would like, and all of the dieting has actually lowered your energy level. Your problem is apparent. You are not eating enough protein.

When the words diet and protein come together, we are sure you imagine grilled chicken, tuna fish, and boiled eggs. But protein, which is vital for anyone on the track to healthy weight loss, can come in many appetizing shapes and sizes.

Many dieters find it easy to prepare our meals ahead of time, and when we make the same salad for every day, by Wednesday we are over it. We end up tossing it out and attacking the nearest vending machine. So, how do you get out of the food rut that you are trapped in? Jump on the lean protein band wagon.

Your body needs protein to repair, maintain and grow lean muscle that will help you to stay full longer. Simply eating 30% of your calories from protein reduces your total calorie intake by over 400 points.

To help you on your protein search, we have compiled a list of healthy, lean proteins that will give you enough options to move your diet from boring to BAM.

Black beans, Cod, Eggs, Egg Whites, Flounder, Ham, sliced extra lean, Pork Tenderloin, Pumpkin Seeds,  Shrimp, Filet Mignon, just to name a few!

Now- Go forth and EAT PROTIEN! That scale will start moving in the right direction and so will your energy level!
