High-protein foods are amazing for fat loss! They take more work to digest, metabolise, and use, which means you burn more calories processing them. They also take longer to leave your stomach, so you feel full sooner and for a longer amount of time. The cumulative effect has obvious benefits for anyone who is watching her weight. Basically, the moment it gets into your tummy, protein starts winnowing your waistline and that’s why the Pepper Soup Diet is so effective for rapid fat loss!
Protein is also essential for making sure you lose fat, not muscle. Your body uses the amino acids in protein to build lean muscle, which not only makes you stronger and more toned but also torches calories even when you’re not active. Ultimately, this keeps your metabolism elevated so you can burn off fat faster.
Not all proteins are created equal. For example foods such as nuts and veggies may be included in a high protein diet but they are not complete proteins as they do not contain all nine of the amino acids your body needs in order to build lean muscle. Those that are known as complete proteins are typically found in animal products e.g. skinless white chicken or turkey, seafood, low-fat dairy, pork tenderloin, and lean beef.
Our top protein sources are grass-fed beef , bone broth protein, whey protein, lentils, wild fish, organic chicken, beans, natto ( fermented soy beans), raw milk, yogurt, eggs and cheese. To get the overall health benefits of protein we recommend that you make about 30 percent of your plate a high-quality source of protein at every meal. This ensures you eat enough throughout the day to meet your needs and prevents you from overeating carbs and junk foods. The health benefits of protein include:
- Improved Muscle Mass
- Weight Management
- Stabilized Blood Sugar Levels
- Improved Mood
- Healthy Brain Function
- Stronger Bones
- Heart Health
- Longevity and Anti-aging
A healthy lifestyle requires a daily workout regimen. Following a high protein and low carb diet plus exercise will guarantee that fat literarily falls off your body. Therefore, its important to add some form of cardio and Metabolic Burst Exercises to your weight loss plan. Furthermore, you should always aim to achieve the recommended minimum of 10,000 steps per day. You can track your steps and progress with a device that can be attached to you all day such as Pedometer, Fitbit, Apple Watch or any Fitness Tracker.
