High Protein Diet for Healthy Weight Loss

Good news for those hardworking weight losers out there - You can double up your satiety levels, not feel hungry or starve anymore, eat in a healthy and delicious way and still lose out on your weight!! We are talking about high protein diets which will give you a sumptuous meal to cherish and at the same time, lose your body weight in the healthiest way. What’s in store for you and how you’ll have to go about it, here’s it for you…

Healthy Weight Loss

In your Choice lies the Secret

People mistake proteins for fat and blindly believe that a food low in protein content will make them shed those extra pounds effortlessly. But that’s not the case. Healthy proteins are much essential to your body to give you the energy to burn down those stubborn fats and making you feel full when you are on a no-fat diet. Therefore, it all lies in what kind of protein food you opt to eat to make your workouts more effective.

To start with, you must know that as a female, you’ll need 46 gm of protein per day; while a man will need 56 gm of protein per day. Then, you must consider the type of protein you opt to go for, to reduce your weight. You will have to pick lean, low-fat sources of protein to do that miracle to yourself and here’s how.

  • Lean meat
  • Seafood
  • Soy, tofu and paneer
  • Low-fat dairy
  • Dry fruits
  • Green leafy veggies
  • Fresh fruits
  • Whole grains and cereals
  • Seeds and nuts
  • Olives
  • Avocado

The Bottom Line

All this being said and done, you must know that while high protein diets aid in weight loss, those proteins which are low or nil in carb content is not recommended over a period of time. However fat you are, still your body needs its minimum carb stocks to produce energy. You cannot run the life show just with proteins, vitamins and minerals by your side. There is a definite need of a certain amount of carbs. Of course, for a certain period of time or for a restricted dieting period, you can choose to have zero-card, high protein food, but this should not become a habit. After all, the golden rule of dieting by itself says the number of kilojoules in Vs the number of kilojoules out – which means, the amount you take in and the amount of energy you burn. It is recommended that you intake the level of carb required for your body and workout effectively, than to keep away from the essential carb by itself.
