Protein is essential for dieters, because it is slow burning, helps balance your blood sugar and gives you sustained energy – all of which are hunger-reducing benefits!
That’s why my Skinny Rule #3 is: EAT PROTEIN AT EVERY MEAL. That’s right – fish, eggs, poultry, pork, beef, cheese, tofu, tempeh, nuts…they’re all protein powerhouses you can integrate into every meal.
Although fish is my go-to protein, I make a point to eat egg whites every day – and not just at breakfast! Egg whites are 20 calories each and are an awesome source of protein.
Start your day powerfully with my B.E.S.T. Breakfast Sandwich. It’ll satisfy and nourish you without compromising your commitment to fitness.
