10 protein foods for weight loss

Trying to lose weight? Protein is your best friend. These foods will keep you fuller for longer, regulate your metabolism and help build lean muscle.

1. Egg whites: They don’t taste as awesome as whole eggs, but egg whites are much lower in fat. Eggs (whole or not) are high in leucine, a muscle-building amino acid. Egg whites contain around 11 grams of protein and zero fat per 100 grams.

2. Tofu: This glorious spongy soy product is cholesterol free, relatively low in fat and contains around 11 grams of protein per 100 grams. It’s also a great source of amino acids.

3. Cottage cheese: It might lack visual appeal, but cottage cheese contains all essential amino acids, is super low in fat and contains around 10 grams of protein per 100 grams. Dairy is also an excellent source of L-Carnitine, which plays a roll in fat metabolism.

4. Venison: Game meats tend to be leaner than traditional meats, and venison is no exception. It’s low in fat and high in protein with around 25 grams of protein per 100 grams. It’s also full of B vitamins that help regulate metabolism.

5. Kangaroo: If you’re not too concerned about eating an Aussie icon: kangaroo meat is lower in fat that most other red meats, and is loaded with metabolism-regulating B-Vitamins and L-Carnitine, which plays a roll in fat burning for energy. And it contains around 21 grams of protein per 100 grams. nomultithumb

6. Whey Protein: Whey is a by-product of cheese production, and whey protein is a product made by isolating the protein in this by-product. It’s usually found in powdered form as protein shakes or supplements. Whey protein isolates tend to be the lowest in fat, but any kind of whey protein is a great source of amino acids, especially leucine, a muscle building amino acid.

7. Skinless chicken: Ditch the drumsticks and wings for a nice lean chicken breast. Most of the fat in chicken is concentrated in the skin, leaving the meat quite lean. 100 grams of skinless chicken breast contains around 22 grams of protein and around 2 grams of fat. Chicken is also good for fat-free cooking methods such as poaching.

8. Prawns: If you’ve only ever had these sweet crustaceans crumbed and fried from the fish and chip shop, you’re missing out. Prawns are high in protein (around 20 grams per 100 grams) and contain almost zero fat. They are also high in omega3, magnesium and iodine, all good for maintaining metabolic health.

9. Peanut flour: Peanuts are high in fat, so chowing down on handfuls isn’t a great idea, but peanut flour is usually defatted, meaning that it’s actually quite low in fat. 100 grams of defatted peanut flour contains around 52 grams of protein and one gram of fat. Use it in your protein baking, or just add water for spreadable peanut butter!

10. Chickpeas: Chickpeas might be lower in protein and higher in carbohydrates than most other protein foods, but they pack a fibrous punch. Chickpeas are a great source of soluble and insoluble fibre. Insoluble fibre is a great way to increase the transit time of food in your tummy, leaving you with a flat tummy and lighter, whereas soluble fibre soaks up water and slows digestion, keeping you fuller for longer.

🌻 I haven’t went on a rant in awhile so if you don’t care to hear it... here’s your chance to exit 😝
MY QUESTION IS: Why do so many of us struggle to find happiness?! - HAPPINESS is at the top of everyone’s list. At the end of the day, we want to feel like we’re happy and have lived well. But oftentimes, we can find ourselves feeling unhappy and we may feel like we’re not sure why happiness isn’t happening for us.
- - - - - -
Most of the time when you have a negative thought or feel unhappy, you’ll read tons of self-help books that tell you to replace that negative thought with a positive one, they may also tell you to spend no more than 60 seconds thinking about it and move on about your day. (Easier said than done) That’s great advice and all but to me, all that does is sweep your negative thinking under the rug and the rug along with that negative thought is still there. Every person who has ever been on a weight loss diet understands this: “just don’t think about food” they say, (again, easier said than done) - this simply just does not work especially for the long haul.

My thoughts: 💭 The next time you’re having a bad day or a negative thought about something, don’t ignore your emotions or thinking and “put on a happy face.” Instead, try accepting the way you feel and try to identify why you are feeling the way you are. By ending the internal struggle of how you actually feel, you can begin to understand your “WHY”— And by understanding yourself and your thoughts a bit better, you come to life’s choices with the most powerful tool of all: YOUR FULL SELF! To me: I feel as though, this is a much better way to choose happiness for yourself. In the end; YES!! happiness is a choice but to understand yourself better will allow your own sense of happiness to shine in brighter than anything else! ☀️🌈🌸
