Protein is generally associated with non-vegetarian or animal sources
Weight loss is a play of smart dietary choices and food combinations. Bangalore-based Nutritionist Dr. Anju Sood says, “One has to ensure the perfect balance of two components in the meals – complex carbs and proteins. Complex carbs releases a low quantum of sugar and they are rich in fibre. Increasing the intake of these types of carbohydrates is advisable for weight loss. If you couple them with it some protein source that makes the meal all the more wholesome and nutritious. Protein takes the longest to digest, and a longer sustained metabolism aids weight-loss. From plant-based proteins, whole grain pulses like moong dal is a good option. Beans are high on protein as well as fibre.” If you happen to be a vegetarian, here are some high protein dinner ideas that you can try at home.
