January 27, 2012Today’s 25,000 Pound Challenge Tip: Choose lean proteins.
Protein is a weight loss hero, but you want to choose the leanest options to control calories and minimize unhealthy fats. Best bets include skinless poultry, fish and shellfish, egg whites, beans, lentils, low-fat dairy, and whole soy foods (tofu, tempeh, edamame). For overall health, I recommend eating red meat (lean cuts, of course) no more than two times per week. When it comes to beef, cuts with the terms “loin” or “round” in the name, such as sirloin and top and bottom round, are the trimmest options. For pork, go for the ultra-lean tenderloin.
