Are you ready to unleash the power of protein to slim down and stay fuller, longer? Protein is a necessary nutrient, a building block of life. Without enough of it, our bodies cannot recover from all those killer workouts you are doing. By incorporating these foods into your diet, you will never have a stomach rumble again while try to slim down and get healthy.
1. Pork loin
28 grams per 3 oz serving
Though beef also has 28 grams of protein per 3 oz serving, pork has a number of health benefits and can be slow-roasted, barbecued, breaded, and baked at lower temperatures. See, when animal proteins are cooked a super-high heat, like that of a grill, chemicals called heterocyclic amines (HCAs) are released.
When you eat too much of that (as in, too many grilled steaks and burgers), the HCAs alter gut bacteria and may lead to cancer. So, case in point, pulled pork, tenderloin, and slow-cooked pork loin is the healthier alternative.
