16 Apr Everything you need to know about protein diets
At the Healthy Weight Clinic, our clients often inquire about our high-protein diets. This nutrition plan prioritizes foods rich in protein and following it can help you shed weight quickly. Continue reading to find out if this is the right weight loss solution for you.
Why does a high-protein diet help with weight loss?
Protein is an efficient appetite suppressant. In other words, when you opt for high-protein foods, you tend to feel satiated a lot quicker and your portion sizes will reduce by extension. The result? You’ll consume less calories overall and lose weight. In order to successfully follow a high-protein diet, make sure to stay active and opt for quality products.
What should I expect to eat if I follow the Healthy Weight Clinic’s protein diet plan?
Based on your goals and needs, you can choose to eat one, two or three high-protein meals per day. Here are a few examples of healthy and delicious breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack options recommended by the Healthy Weight Clinic:
- Breakfast bars
- Soy-based cereal
- Hot chocolate
- Oat flakes
- Pink lemonade
- Pancake mix
- Bacon and cheese omelette
- Protein bread
In the context of a high-protein diet, fresh fruits and veggies as well as vitamin and mineral supplements like calcium and potassium are highly recommended for optimal results.
What are the advantages of following a high-protein diet?
High-protein diets come with their fair share of health benefits. For example, they help:
- Suppress feelings of hunger (no need to feel deprived!)
- Build muscle
- Promote rapid weight loss
- Keep your body strong during periods of rapid weight loss
