5 Proteins That Make Weight Loss Easy

Proteins play a crucial role in weight loss as they help in building and repairing muscles, boosting metabolism, and keeping you feeling full for longer. We all have busy lives, so we need FAST, easy sources of protein. Here are five protein-rich foods that can aid in weight loss:

Rotisserie Chicken: Two reasons why we love getting a rotisserie chicken:

1. Raw chicken is so hard to cook "just right". I love that this is quick grab from the store and ready-to-eat.

2. The skin on chicken is rich in the hard-to-find amino acid glycine.

*If it's in your budget & accessible to you, choose organic and/or pasture raised.

Canned Salmon: Salmon is an excellent source of omega-3s and calcium. It’s best to eat wild caught because it is often more nutritious and less exposed to toxins. Baked wild salmon dries out fairly easily, so grabbing a can for a lunch on the go or a fast dinner makes life so much easier.

Single Serving Yogurt: Greek yogurt (plain) is higher in protein and lower in carbohydrates compared to regular yogurt. It also contains probiotics, which can improve gut health and aid in weight loss. If you decide to choose a flavored yogurt make sure it contains less than 10gm added sugar per serving. If you want less sugar- look for yogurts flavored naturally (with stevia or monk fruit) rather then artificial sweeteners.

Deli Slices: Deli meat can be so versatile. Make low carb wraps, fill a sandwich, add to salad, or heat up your meat of choice and wrap your favorite cheese and veggie to make a little melt.

Beans and Legumes: You can’t get easier then a can of beans! Add to your salad or meat of choice for that extra boost of protein and fiber. This combination helps you feel full and satisfied, making it easier to control your appetite and lose weight. Always try to choose organic and canned without BPA if it’s in your budget.

Incorporating these protein-rich foods into your diet along with a balanced intake of carbohydrates and healthy fats can support your weight loss goals. However, it's essential to consider portion sizes and overall calorie intake for effective weight management.
