Lean protein is an important part of any healthy diet
Lean protein provides you with a fullness feeling and may help prevent overeating. Here are some pointers for selecting good sources of lean protein:
Fish is the healthiest sources of lean protein. They are lower in saturated fat than poultry or beef. Cold-water fish, such as salmon, is an excellent choice as it contains high amounts of omega-3 fatty acids, a "good" fat that can be beneficial to your health
Poultry is a good source of protein but the calorie count of poultry can vary. Just choose leaner cuts of turkey and chicken as often as possible; it is lower in calories than dark meat. Be sure to remove the skin before eating. Learn how to grill your chicken or turkey to cut fat and calories. You can also roast it or bake it to keep the calorie count low.
Watching your fat and your daily calorie intake does not mean you have to give up beef. Choose cuts with the words "round" or "loin" in the name, and those that have less visible marbling. Trim any visible fat before you cook it or ask the butcher to do so before wrapping it up. When choosing ground beef, look for "lean" or "extra lean" on the label.
Despite getting a Bad Reputation, a few years back due to cholesterol concerns, eggs truly can be part of any healthy diet. The calories in eggs are low and they provide around five grams of protein per serving. They are the most budget-friendly protein source. They are easy to prepare, and can be used creatively in many different ways.
