While a weight loss journey is a bit overwhelming, but it definitely does not demand you to sacrifice all your favourite treats at once. Here are some protein-rich ideas you can try

The idea of weight loss is often misunderstood by many. It is often seen as gruelling journey, wherein you would need to do away with all things flavourful and tasty and fill in your plates with everything bland. While the journey is a bit overwhelming, but it definitely does not demand you to sacrifice all your favourite treats at once. You need to start with making wise choices. Swap unhealthy foods laden in trans-fats with protein-rich foods. Proteins are immensely significant in a weight diet. They help induce a feeling of fullness. If you feel satiated, you would binge less. An inclusion of protein-rich foods in your diet can keep you full for a longer period of time. High protein foods also increase levels of appetite-reducing hormones like GLP-1, PYY and CCK, and reduce levels of the hunger hormone ghrelin, making you crave less, thereby aiding weight loss.
