Get Protein on the Go
Protein may be the magic bullet for a better body. A recent study found that dieters who increased their intake of high-protein foods to 30 percent of their diet ate fewer calories and lost about 11 pounds over 12 weeks. What’s more, high-protein foods help your muscles rebuild and recover after a workout, so you’ll grow more fat-burning muscle tissue and look more toned.
Problem is, none of us is about to pocket a grilled chicken breast, and the best sources of protein—fish, meat, dairy, beans—aren’t quick and convenient to eat. When you’re on the go or too busy to cook, reach for one of these portable proteins instead.
