Top -5 High-Protein Foods Which Help You Lose Weight.

Here are some of the #High #Proteins food which helps you to Lose Weight.

Although the Paleo diet may be a bit controversial, Perlmutter says followers of the plan are definitely right about their devotion to grass-fed steak. Now that new research has disproven the age-old belief that there’s a link between dietary saturated fat and heart disease (there isn’t), Perlmutter says having a lean sirloin—which has a cool 22.5 grams of protein in just three ounces—from time to time is clutch. One caveat: “When picking out beef, make sure it is grass-fed and not grain-fed,” explains Perlmutter. “Grain-fed protein sources are going to increase inflammation because of the omega-6 fatty acids in them.” Inflammation can lead to more belly fat, so it’s basically the exact opposite of what you’re going for.

4.)COCONUT

Slide 7 of 25: Coconut

Along with 15 grams of protein—which, we might add, is pretty darn impressive for a fruit—coconut is also high in theronine, an amino acid your body uses to prevent fat buildup in the liver and speed up recovery after a butt-busting workout. Don’t have an actual coconut handy (unless you’re on a tropical vacay, in which case we’re really jeal)? You can still reap some of the health bennies from its derivatives, like coconut flour (four grams of protein in two tablespoons), milk (five grams per cup) and butter (two grams in two tablespoons).

 3.) CHICKPEAS

Slide 11 of 25: <p>You can't really argue with the numbers here: One cup of garbanzo beans equals a third of your daily protein recommendation and an impressive 19 grams of fiber. Plus, <a href="http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19298202">studies</a> have shown that those who added legumes into a <a href="http://www.redbookmag.com/body/health-fitness/features/g3134/top-diet-plans/">low-calorie diet</a> lost about 50 percent more weight than those who didn't because of all the slow-to-digest, plant-based fiber they contain. Our advice? Go for the hummus and baby carrots, but stick to a two tablespoon serving instead of going at it directly from the tub, as it's way too easy to go overboard on the stuff (trust us on that one, we know from experience). </p>

2.) COW’S MILK

Slide 16 of 25: <p>Nut milks like coconut, almond, and cashew are a great way to naturally get some vitamin D (all have about 25 grams per cup), but if we're strictly talking calories and protein here, moo milk is a top-notch source. The stuff has just 86 calories while serving up eight grams of protein in a cup (as opposed to a measly one to two grams in the nutty options), says Eades. That said, every glass of milk is definitely not created equally. To make sure you're not being exposed to potentially harmful rBGH hormones or excessive amounts of estrogen—which <a href="http://news.harvard.edu/gazette/2006/12.07/11-dairy.html">research</a> suggests is a potential link to prostate and breast cancers—Eades recommends opting for organic fat-free milk from grass-fed cows that have not been treated with hormones to play it safe. </p>

1) ALMONDS

Slide 22 of 25: <p>We could go on for days about why unsalted almonds are the ideal <a href="http://www.redbookmag.com/body/healthy-eating/recipes/g771/eating-plan-for-weight-loss/">weight-loss</a> snack, but in a nutshell, it all comes down to the mono-saturated fats that make them highly satiating without any extra calories, says Eades. To make the deal even sweeter, <a href="http://www.nature.com/ejcn/journal/vaop/ncurrent/full/ejcn2013184a.html)">studies</a> suggest that regularly eating 20 to 23 almonds (which boast around seven grams of protein) per day can help you maintain a healthy weight and decrease the odds of <a href="http://www.redbookmag.com/body/features/g2820/25-weight-loss-tips-from-women-whove-kept-off-25-pounds/">gaining any back</a> due to their vitamin E, magnesium, and phytochemicals that control the fluctuations of blood glucose during <a href="http://www.redbookmag.com/body/health-fitness/a42341/digestive-problems/">digestion</a>. In short, keep a bag of them in your desk drawer at all times. </p>

We could go on for days about why unsalted almonds are the ideal weight-loss snack, but in a nutshell, it all comes down to the mono-saturated fats that make them highly satiating without any extra calories, says Eades. To make the deal even sweeter, studies suggest that regularly eating 20 to 23 almonds (which boast around seven grams of protein) per day can help you maintain a healthy weight and decrease the odds of gaining any back due to their vitamin E, magnesium, and phytochemicals that control the fluctuations of blood glucose during digestion. In short, keep a bag of them in your desk drawer at all times.
