Who doesn’t want to reduce appetite and hunger? How about eliminating cravings? What about increasing your metabolism AND fat loss?
Proteins do so much for us including increasing the chances for weight loss…but how do you get enough. It’s so easy to have a high carb and fat diet, but really, how much chicken can you fit into one day?
“Remember when you’re hungry, your body wants nutrients, not calories”

Of course, meat and dairy are where it’s at for biggest bang for your buck. However, if you’re eating breakfast, you may want something other than a piece of steak! Above are many options to keep protein in every meal you eat to reduce cravings and crashes!
REMINDER: not all proteins are created equally and many of the proteins above are jam packed with fats (nuts and seeds) and many are equally packed with carbs (beans and oats). So be careful on your portions when you are eating fruits and veggies, nuts, and seeds.
