Protein Diet Plan
Your breakfast can include things like eggs, cooked black gram, skimmed milk, fat free yogurt, sprouts, etc. You can add a serving of green vegetables and a small serving of carbs also to your breakfast. Like you can take omelet made with spinach and other vegetables along with a multi grain toast.
Taking a glass of fruit smoothie or skimmed milk will make your diet full of proteins and vitamins. On some other day you can try sprouts chaat tossed with a variety of vegetables like tomatoes, cucumber, onions, coriander, etc. A glass of fat free buttermilk will make this breakfast more wholesome and nourishing. On some other day two scrambled eggs made with egg whites and a multi grain toast will make a nice start for the day.
Your lunch can consist of high protein foods like kidney beans, chickpeas, soya beans and soy products like tofu, fat free yogurt, a plate of salad and may be a chapatti. Always eat a plate of salad before starting your actual meal. This will make you feel full faster and you will not crave for carbohydrates.
Keep yogurt as a side dish every day. The good bacteria in yogurt are good for our gut’s health. Try chickpeas, kidney beans, French beans, soy beans on different days of the week. Team them with salads, yogurt and a chapatti. You can make chapatti from Pearl or Finger also instead of regular wheat chapatti. Pearl and Finger are very high in calcium and good for health.
Dinner can consist of a piece of chicken or fish, cooked mushrooms, salad, yogurt or a bowl of pulses and a small chapatti. You can choose from these foods to make different dishes for your dinner. One day you can try chicken made in light gravy, salad, curd and a small chapatti. Another day grilled fish on a bed of stir fried vegetables, a bowl of vegetable soup and a small chapatti.
The two snacks of the day can consist of a seasonal fruit, roasted black gram or soya beans or a small plate of bhel. The idea is to include lots of green vegetables, fruits and high protein foods in all the meals of the day. This will help in burning off excess fat stored in the body and will not let carbohydrate convert into fat in your body since your carbs consumption has dived down, leaving no space for transformation into fats. Exercise moderately and feel the difference in your confidence levels and looks.
