INCLUDING PROTEIN-RICH

FOODS IN YOUR SALAD

WEIGHT-LOSS GOALS.

You can keep yourself trim

and still enjoy high-calorie

foods by having smaller

portions of it.

It will help you to control how

much food you are consuming.

In addition, choose not to go for

seconds as this may defeat the

purpose of using smaller plates

in the first place.

Consult a professional

Always consult a dietician if you

require assistance in putting a

meal plan together. In addition,

you should always check with

your doctor before making

any drastic changes to your

diet, especially if you are under

medication or suffer from any

medical condition that has an

effect on your diet.

WHO enjoy

says you

can’t

have high-calorie foods at all,

if you are weight watching? It

may in fact not make much of a

difference, providing that it does

not get out of control and you

don’t do it too often!

Remember that it is okay to

treat yourself once in a while

and if it’s something delicious

that you simply can’t resist, enjoy

it. Just have smaller portions.

Use smaller plates for

high-calorie foods

Ensure that you have smaller

portions when consuming highcalorie

foods. Making use of

smaller plates or side plates will

be very useful in this regard.

Protein and

weight loss

Adding protein to your salad

can not only make it more appetising

and flavoursome, but it

will also help you to build more

muscle. Building muscle is great

for weight loss as it can help you

to burn more calories.

Which protein-rich

foods to add to salads?

Consider adding thinly sliced

pieces of roast chicken or

perhaps even little blocks of

smoked chicken to your salad.

You can alternatively add some

boiled eggs, salmon, tuna or

even shrimp to your salad. You

will be pleasantly surprised at

how delicious these ingredients

can taste in a salad if you have

never tried them before!

Vegetarian?

If you are a vegetarian, don’t

worry – there are options for you

too! Simply try adding some

cooked beans or perhaps even

some tofu to your salad. You will

not be able to resist the taste,

absolutely delicious!

Added bonus

Apart from helping you to build

muscle, protein will also help

you to stay full for longer. This

is great for weight loss as it will

help keep cravings at bay.
