If fat loss is the goal eat foods that use more energy to digest, and stay active! – Some diet tips from Daniel Wellard

<   Back


If fat loss is the goal, energy expenditure (the amount of energy our body burns) must be increased. Being more active is a fantastic way of increasing energy expenditure. However, another simple way is to eat foods that use more energy to digest and absorb into our bodily system.

 

One of the best foods to eat to increase the amount of energy our body uses per day is Protein. Compared to carbs, more energy is required to digest and assimilate dietary protein. 

 

Popular foods that are high in protein are:

 

  • Meat
  • Fish

 

For Veggies

 

  • Eggs
  • Cottage cheese
  • Milk
  • Lentils
  • Tofu
  • Whey
  • Nuts

 

How much Protein should you consume?

 

Based on 3-4 meals per day:

 

A male – 2 fist size portions of protein per meal, for a female 1 fist size portion.

 

Happy Health
