Weight loss is more than reducing the calories and avoiding what we love to eat. According to Ivana Visnjic, in order to successfully lose weight, and more importantly maintain the desired weight, you need to find a way to eat less, but have the same feeling of satiety.
Proteins are your secret weapon in the battle with unwanted kilos, because they give a feeling of fullness without adding unnecessary calories. They also help speed up the metabolism. If your goal is weight loss, these 5 foods are excellent sources of protein, which will help you, lose those unwanted pounds. Ivana Visnjic has not only tried this method, but it has become her routine.
Egg whitesWhile eggs are a whole-wheat source of protein, egg yolks contain fat. So if you're trying to lose weight it is best to use only egg whites whenever possible.
Egg whites can be prepared as a separate dish or as a condiment. You can make a delicious omelet of egg whites or use them in diet cakes. In any case, the egg whites will help satisfy hunger and make you feel a sieve. Because it contains only 54 kcal per 100 g and 1 g carbohydrates, egg white is a great ally in weight loss.
SpirulinaYou may not have heard of spirulina, but it is the protein that you should definitely add to your diet if you want to lose weight.
Spirulina algae consist of 60% protein. It contains amino acids and vitamins A, B, C, D and E, and minerals containing iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, sodium, zinc and selenium. It can be bought in the form of powder, and as Visnjic explains on her Vimeo channel that one teaspoon contains 4 g of protein. Besides being rich in protein, spirulina also speeds up the metabolism and detoxifies the body.
