How To Choose A High Protein Diet For Weight Loss

High protein and low carbohydrate diets have been followed for years to achieve weight loss success. The diets come in a range of varieties, but all focus on reducing unhealthy carbs from the diet, while increasing protein from foods or supplements. The diets are not without controversy, but their proponents support them with gusto. Once you learn what each diet has to offer, you can select the best protein diet for weight loss success.

Some of the most popular high protein diets include the Atkins, South Beach, and Paleo diets. Each diet is distinctly different, despite their similarity in concept. High protein liquid diets, including prepackaged foods, are also available for those who look for convenience or need a more restrictive diet.

The Atkins Diet, developed by Dr. Robert Atkins, has been around since the early 1970s. The diet focuses on consuming high amounts of fat and protein rich foods, such as meat and eggs, while limiting most fruits and vegetables. Grains, starchy vegetables, sugar, and most fruits are not permitted during the weight loss phase, but some are reintroduced during maintenance. The diet is very restrictive, but it has been proven effective for weight loss.

Dr. Arthur Agatston, a cardiologist, created the South Beach Diet to help his patients improve their heart health. Weight loss was a bonus, so the diet became popular around the world and the book was published in 2005. The diet focuses on healthy carbs and encourages lean sources of protein. The plan isn’t as high in protein as the Atkins diet, but it encourages more protein than many other diet plans. The diet encourages a wide range of fruits and vegetables, but limits starchy foods and saturated fats.

The Paleo diet is a newer high protein diet for weight loss, but is based on our ancestral diet. The diet eliminates grains and processed foods, while encouraging the consumption of grass-fed beef and other naturally healthy sources of protein. Paleo dieters also eat a wide range of fruits and vegetables, allowing more carbohydrates than the Atkins plan. The plan has a proven success rate and has gathered an enormous number of fans in a short amount of time.

Many people choose to follow a liquid high protein diet for weight loss or use prepackaged foods. These plans are low carb and require the purchase of special high protein shakes and other products. Medifast and Ideal Protein are two examples of prepackaged and liquid protein diets. The programs allow a small amount of fresh food daily, but followers use prepackaged foods for most of their meals.

High protein and low carbohydrate diets are often the source of controversy among dieticians and other health professionals. Many experts feel that these diets are not nutritionally balanced and may cause nutritional deficiencies if followed for long periods of time, especially if dieters don’t strictly adhere to the guidelines of the program. However, many dieticians also feel that they can be used successfully if dieters follow the diets as they are written, and consult their physicians before beginning their diets.

When selecting a high protein diet for weight loss, it is important to review the diet plan carefully and decide if you will enjoy the foods you will be permitted to eat. Each of these diet plans have been proven to work, as long as the dieters followed them correctly. You will be more likely to stick to your plan and reach your weight loss goal if you enjoy the foods allowed in the diet you select. The diet plan you choose will likely become a road-map for your future lifestyle to maintain your weight and good health.

      I suggest you eat bread buns for lunch daily. the buns will give your butt a boost in self confidence. it will then want to sit more and you will make more biscuits. dogs love biscuits. and i love dogs. i dont understand how hard it is. by the way, dont use recycle bins..use regular bins to dispose your old buns. or take then to the local park to feed to the birds. its great to give back to nature!! give back! NOW!i demand you leave at once. you are breaking and entering!!

    How Can I Get A Good Source Of Carbohydrates And Proteins, Plus Workout Tips? I am wanting to start working out and getting healthy and gain lean muscle mass but i don’t really know what foods i should eat before and after a workout to get a good serving of protein and carbohydrates. so anyone who is maybe an athlete or just trying to get healthy too share some meal ideas? and maybe a few workout tips? thank you.

    By the way I’m a 19 year old male weighing in at about 164lbs and about 5’7″ if that helps
    Oh and i have access to workout equipment like dumbbells, that machine where you work out your legs by pushing weights with them, (don’t know what its called) treadmills, and those stationary bikes and an elliptical.

      I’ll give you a list of some common foods that are high in complex carbohydrates and take notes because it’s great for you to add them to your meal plan:

      Oatmeal
      Pasta
      Macaroni
      Spaghetti
      Rice
      Potatoes
      Bread
      Home-Made Pizza
      Cereal
      Bran
      Wheat
      Corn
      Yam
      Peas
      Beans
      Lentils
      Vegetables

      The above mentioned foods make your stomach full for a few hours. They make you have a slow digestion. So it’s good for those who want to slow down their metabolism. These foods are also beneficial for those who want to build muscle because they are great sources of energy for your body and muscles.

      Now I’m going to give you a list of foods high in protein that you should make sure you add to your meal plan. These foods are very important to build muscle mass.

      Here is the list:

      Eggs
      Ham
      Sausages (healthy choices)
      Seafood (Fish, Calamari, Octopus, Salmon, etc.)
      Poultry (Chicken, Turkey, etc.)
      Beef
      Pork
      Tofu
      Peanut Butter
      Dairy Products
      Protein Shakes
      Protein Bars
      Liquid Protein

      As you can see there are many sources of proteins. So I recommend that you choose various, not just one.

      Doing combinations of these foods high in complex carbs and proteins will be the best way to create your meal plan.

      Three other foods you might want to add to your meal plan are:

      Ice creams
      Smoothies
      Yogurts

      These 3 are very good and delicious.

      Workout Tips:

      Get your form straight before you go heavy
      Progression is key – Add weight or reps when you can.
      Don’t get greedy – This is a long game. Adding too much too soon can leave you injured
      Eat. Adjust as needed.
      Focus. Gym time is work time. Socialization is fine, but spend time under the bar.
      Don’t buffet train – You don’t need to hit your biceps from 8 different angles, you need to get your primary lifts up.
      Get brutally strong – Your chest isn’t impressed with 15 pound flyes. Get your lifts up and good things will happen.
      Have fun – If you hate your time in the gym, you aren’t likely to make much progress.

      Well the best way to lose weight is to run everyday morning and night or after for hour and of course you wont be able to run the whole 1 hour as your not in shape yet so try to run for 30 minutes or more if you can and then walk for like 10 minutes and then run until you get to an hour and if your finally able to run the whole 1 hour start running for 2 hours

      also start weight lifting as well as muscle burns fat so just get normal 15 lb or lighter if its to heavy and do curls dumbbell presses etc and most important of all do free weights such as push ups and if your unable to do allot of push ups do like 10 rest 10 seconds 10 rest 10 rest until you get to 100 or 200 if you can also get a bar and try to do pull ups front wards and you probably wont be able to so try really hard and go to the top and go down slowly, and you will have to do ab workouts like crunches and raise your legs

      and do a quick warm up and and stretch before you lift and also with running do a quick warm up run like 10 minutes then stretch and start your 1 hour run

      the other most important key fact to weight loss is a big change in your diet which mean more calories out then in so no to any fast food for the rest of your life unless you want be fat the rest of your life, don’t eat any junk foods high in fat like donuts and stuff like that because if your going to be burning like 1000 calories and then eating 3000 calories you wont be losing fat but instead just gaining fat and the only difference will be you will be gaining 10 lbs everyday instead of 5 lbs

      what you should eat is salad fruit vegetables yogurt eat meat but not one in a kfc bucket a kind that homemade eat eggs also good in protein

      follow these steps and i guarantee you of you being fit

      Try counting calories. 2400 is the maximum a person should usually intake per day (and I say usually because there are special occasions like birthdays and weddings where it’s kind of hard to stay under 2400 calories), and eventually (I say eventually because your diet probably gives you 4000-5000 calories right now, that’s what mine was) if you want to lose weight faster stay between 2000-2200 calories. Of course, if you’re diet includes fast food and Starbucks, 2400 is fine. Go to http://www.calorieking.com and look up calorie content of foods you eat, or you can buy their book, which might be handier. Combined with exercise, this is a great way to lose weight and isn’t risky like diet pills or miracle diets.
