10 Protein Power Foods For Weight Loss
 
1.Eggs
Eggs qualify as inexpensive and amazing source of complete proteins. One large egg contains approx 6 gm of protein; and if you want to cut the 2g saturated fat which comes with it, leave the yolk and go for the egg whites only. Eggs also contain B vitamins, selenium, zinc, iron, and vitamin A and D. Studies highlight that the fair levels of cholesterol present in eggs are less harmful to the body, in comparison to the saturated and trans fat present in processed foods.

2.Fish
The fact that seafood is healthy is no brainer. Low in saturated fats and high in omega 3 fatty acids, fish is an excellent source of lean protein. Whether you go for sushi grade tuna or grilled salmon, don’t forget to eat fist at least twice a week.

3.Almonds
Loaded with healthy monounsaturated fats, calcium, folic acid, vitamin E, and proteins, almonds are a great source of energy. Munch these versatile nuts as snack, with salads, or in stir fry veggies. When it comes to nuts, raw is best.

4.Oats
This breakfast friend happens to be one of the richest protein sources among grains. Abundant in dietary fiber (which help to lower cholesterol levels), amino acid glutamic acid, leucine (boosts metabolism), and a range of vitamins, oats deliver a nutrition packed cereal. Experts point that the lesser processed oat, such as steel cut and oat groats have higher protein content than the rolled oats.

5.Low-Fat Cottage Cheese
Low-fat cottage cheese ranks number one on this list for the highest amount of protein per serving. A half-cup of cottage cheese will provide your body with 14 grams of protein to help you lose weight and stay healthy.

6.Milk
Drinking a glass of milk a day (an 8-ounce glass of milk contains approximately 8 grams of protein) will give your body the boost of protein as well as calcium, which is good for your bones. If you don’t like drinking milk on it’s own consider making a fruit smoothie or eating a bowl of cereal to get the nutrients your body needs.

7.Low-Fat Yogurt
An average, on-the-go container of yogurt is about 6 ounces. Eating 1-2 portions of low-fat yogurt each day is a healthy and delicious way to up your protein intake in a healthy way. The key is making sure the yogurt is low-fat.

8.Lentils
Legumes are not only rich in protein but also contain plenty of fibre. These nutrients are important for balancing blood sugar levels and keeping you more satisfied after a meal.

9.Peanut Butter
Eating peanut butter is perhaps the easiest way to up the amount of healthy protein in your diet. A single tablespoon contains 95 calories, four grams of protein and eight grams of fat. Simply consuming to spoonfuls of this delicious spread straight from the spoon will give you a whopping 16 ounces of healthy protein for the day.

10.Beans
More than just a meat substitute, beans are so nutritious that the latest dietary guidelines recommend we triple our current intake from 1 to 3 cups per week. High in fiber, minerals, and antioxidants, these protein rich foods are good for weight loss and help prevent diabetes, heart diseases, and even cancer.
