Be honest: chicken gets boring. But salmon is another excellent source of lean protein that comes with a fat-fighting advantage. “Salmon is a good source of Omega-3 fatty acids, which may help aid weight loss by improving glucose sensitivity, reducing insulin resistance, reducing inflammation, and speeding up the oxidation of fat,” says Zukerbrot. For a super satiating meal, serve the fish alongside roasted vegetables. Pick artichokes, spinach, or broccoli, which all provide at least 5 grams of fiber per serving.
Cutting calories? No need to subside on spinach and egg whites alone. Stock your kitchen with a variety of healthy foods that are high in protein and fiber and you’ll feel satisfied enough to stick to a weight loss plan past January.
