Although fish beats meat more often than not on the satiety index that we mentioned earlier, meats such as beef, pork and chicken are also high in protein. Research has shown that opting for a high-protein lunch can reduce your dinner calories by 12% in comparison to the high-carb lunch.
Eggs, or more specifically, egg yolks have been branded with a bad reputation of causing heart problems such as heart attacks due to their high cholesterol. Yes, they do have a high amount of cholesterol, but recent research has proven that it’s not bad cholesterol that is increased when you eat eggs. They are a complete protein – meaning that they consist of all the nine essential amino acids.
