Rev up your weight loss with one of our favorite super-nutrients, protein. These high-protein paleo lunch and dinner recipes are yummy additions to your weight loss menu.
The protein in our recipes will help you nourish lean muscle development. Why do you need to feed muscle? It burns more calories than fat tissue, even when you’re curled up in front of Netflix. The result is a higher metabolism that helps you shed pounds.
Just like any other weight loss plan, the key to success is controlling portions. Paleo meals offer plenty of protein and good fats, nutrients that nourish the muscles and naturally help the body drop weight. However, eating portions that are too large will increase your calorie intake, making it hard to lose weight or maintain a healthy one. Always check the recommended serving size listed with the recipe, and measure that out on your plate.
