The idea of the high protein diets is to take about 50%-70% of proteins, very low fats and carbs.
Why is it so important to take more proteins when dieting?
Proteins are about 15% of the body mass of an average person. Our body tissue is built of protein molecules. Muscles, cartilages, ligaments, skin and hair – these are all mainly protein materials. You must have proteins in your diet, otherwise instead of fat you will lose muscle mass.
I don’t have a list with nutrients per serving of popular foods right now, but it is a well known fact that most of the high protein foods have a lot of fat too.
A good example of high protein food is meat (veal, chicken breasts, pork fillet). Veal is better than pork, but it’s still too fatty for dieting. On the other hand, you have to boil or bake all the foods you eat. Fried foods are not allowed at all.
I donâ€™t know about you, but I am unhappy eating boiled veal or chicken. I am happy eating a big steak with potato fries, etc. Sorry, you must forget about them.
Well, I like delicious shakes, puddings, bars and soups too. You are allowed to eat the fat free and low carb ones only.
Here is a list of high protein, low fat diet foods in a packet. Mix them with a glass of water, low fat milk or juice. Enjoy!
