What’s the secret to slimming down?
Even when you are super disciplined and committed to your weight-loss plan, it can be difficult to actually slim down, and the end goal of fitting into your favorite clothes again can be a long, hard uphill battle.
So what’s the secret to really slimming down?
Carrara offers 10 go-to foods to help you stay on track and meet your goals:
- Egg whites
- Low-fat cheese
- Plain Greek yogurt
- Kefir (a cultured milk product that has more probiotics than yogurt)
- Fat-free milk
- Plain soy milk
- Skinless chicken
- Pork tenderloin
- Beans and lentils
“Beans and lentils are excellent sources of fiber, iron and potassium,” Carrara explains. “They also contain carbohydrates, but have a very low glycemic index, which can produce a more gradual rise and fall in blood glucose levels.”
Tweaking your diet and adding these 10 protein power foods will help you reach your end goal of a leaner and healthier you.
