Protein Foods For Weight Loss
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

What do you need to do to lose weight? You basically need to burn more calories than you take in. The best way to do this, of course, is to boost your metabolism (the rate of which you burn calories) and to take in less calories. Sounds simple enough right?

But what is the most tactical way to do boost your metabolism?

Did you know that your body has a hard time digesting proteins? Your body needs to put in a lot of effort to turn proteins into something useful, and thus burning more calories when digesting. Here's another benefit of proteins: They make you feel full, so eating proteins will surpress your cravings for junk foods!

Following is a list of the best protein foods for weight loss. These protein foods for weight loss are healthy and can easily be implemented on your current diet.

The first in my list of protein foods for weight loss is Eggs. Egg yolks are very rich in protein and have almost no saturated fats. Many studies have shown that people (especially women) who eat an egg for breakfast, have significantly less trouble keeping to their diet plan. Your body also needs to burn a high amount of calories to digest eggs. However, don't eat more than one egg yolk a day and avoid frying them!

The second on my list is whole grain wheat (brown bread). But of course, I wouldn't let you eat a dry slice of bread, I'm not a marterer. So we'll jump right to the third on my list, which is Meat. Lean meat like chicken or turky works especially well when trying to lose weight. Put a slice of turky or chicken on your bread.

Here are some other high quality protein foods for weight loss:

- Fish

- Poultry

- Milk

- Nuts

- Beans

- Peas

- Cheese

- Seeds

Your daily protein requirements:

It has been said that you need about 0.75 grams of protein of every kilogram of bodyweight. To figure out how much protein you need daily, you need your weight in kilograms and multiply that by 0.75.

This simple formula will help you figure out your protein needs:

Your weight in lbs X 0.3178 = Your daily protein needs in grams

So, if you weigh 180 lbs:

180 X 0.3178 = 57.204

So you need to take in roughly 60 grams of high quality, low fat protein every day. On the days on which you do intensive excersise, you need about 25 to 30% more than that.

I wish you the best of luck in building a better body for yourself and I'll leave you with this quote:

"Ordinary things, done consistantly, produce extraordinary results!"
