Lean meats can support your weight loss diet_1

Lean meats contain less fat than other cuts of meat.

Some people think that you should not eat meat if you are trying to lose weight. However, consuming lean meats can support a weight loss diet in a few ways.

Including lean beef or chicken breasts into your eating plan can be a fabulous way to get in some protein whilst keeping the calories down. Protein is great for building muscle fibre which supports weight loss. Just remember to remove the skin off the chicken breast before preparing. The skin of chicken contains a layer of fat behind it. This can add way more calories to your meal than you can imagine!

Protein is a very filling nutrient that can help you reach satiation much quicker than most other nutrients. Think about it. Do you feel fuller after eating eggs and sausage for breakfast as opposed to cereal? Feeling full can help to limit cravings for some time thereafter too.

Be sure to include some healthy sources of fresh, lean meat. Avoid processed meats.
Consult a professional

Always consult a dietitian if you require assistance in putting a meal or snack plan together. In addition, you should always check with your doctor before making any drastic changes to your diet, especially if you are under medication or suffer from any medical condition that has an effect on your diet.
