Eating right is the more difficult part while trying to lose weight. You may force yourself to run for an hour on the treadmill in the gym but unless you are really willing to change your lifestyle for the better you will find it extremely difficult to turn over a new leaf and eat right day in and day out.
The rule is that anything that has been processed or artificially preserved should be avoided. More over products made from wheat should also be avoided. Instead of defining lunches, we have taken a different approach to liberate you and give you the information that you need to experience and create something new every day.
Here are the top 8 constituents that you may add to any lunch and ensure a great meal everytime.
Beef is a great source of protein and we need protein to not only because it is an extremely important macronutrient but also because it helps curb our appetite and keeps our hunger at bay for longer thereby ensuring we do not eat unhealthy snacks. Make sure the beef is lean and the fat content is at a minimum to gain the most benefits.
Chicken is a naturally lean meat and can be eaten in all forms. Grill it, sauté it, fry it. You will enjoy its natural goodness each time. Make sure that you drink plenty of water to digest all the protein.
Similar to chicken, tuna has limited fat content naturally and should be eaten to meet the body’s daily protein requirements. It can be eaten in the form of a salad or wraps.
You can eat it in the form of slices or you can have it roasted. Turkey serves the same role as other protein rich foods.
Salads and Vegetables
You can add to your protein rich foods a wide assortment of vegetables. Cucumbers, carrots, lettuce, and asparagus, the list goes on and on. You can mix and match whatever you wish to eat to fulfill your daily requirement of minerals.
Eggs are a great source of nutrition. They are packed with protein and can be eaten boiled, fried, poached or mixed with condiments in the case of egg salads.
Lentils are also a great source of protein with absolutely no fat baggage. They are often eaten in the form of soups or chowders but can also be eaten as gravy based dishes.
You will have to provide a base for your sandwiches and it is important that you use wholewheat bakery products for either wraps or sandwiches.
All of the base ingredients described above can be used in millions of combinations to produce one healthy lunch after the other. We’ll hand it over to you from here, let your creativeness lead the way.
