Healthy Meal Plans

High Protein Diet Meal Plans - The Good and Bad

This original article was written by Alvin Hopkinson

From fad diets to high protein diet meal plans and virtually everything in between. This article is going to focus on the pros and cons of high protein diet meal plans. These types of diets generally recommend that the dieter increase the protein intake daily to between 30-40% of the overall calorie intake. These diet regimens and meal plans are designed to be the total opposite of what most people consider to be a good diet.

Many people consider high protein diets to also be low carb diets as well. Some of the foods you will have to cut out or limit on these diets plans are:

· Pasta

· Sugars

· Potatoes

· Cereal

· Bread

Low carb high protein diets work because instead of relying on the carbs that have been consumed to burn the calories it works on actually burning the fat first because of the lower carb intake. The Good to High Protein Diet Meal Plans:

· You will feel full quicker and the feeling of satisfaction with the amount of food you ate will last longer.

· You can still eat the foods that are high in protein without being penalized, like many other diets.

· You can eat low carb veggies. The Bad to High Protein Diet Meal Plans:

· Some of these diets will require you to limit your carb intake drastically which can be unhealthy.

· Be cautious when choosing your high protein diet because many of the plans will suggest you consume a larger than healthy amount of fats daily.

Benefits Of A Daily Healthy Eating Plan

As we hear more attention brought to the problem of young children becoming obese, and getting diabetes, and the huge health risks associated with being overweight, more people are trying to lose weight and get healthy. Many times it is not the first attempt at losing weight. If you have been through this cycle of dieting a few times, it is definitely time for a lifestyle change.

The problem with a diet is, it's probably an eating plan you do not intend on staying with for the long term. Needless to say I was on the never ending diet cycle. I finally decided, after fifteen years of the yo yo diet syndrome, that I was tired of it, and got on a plan of eating healthy, and have never looked back. To start your new daily health eating plan, you need to remove the word diet from your mind. To start your new healthy lifestyle, don't pick a day to start like you do with a diet. Start your new plan today. Remember, you're dieting days are over. Tomorrow you might give up that calorie buster breakfast for a bowl of healthy cereal with fresh fruit on top, and low fat milk.

For dinner a couple of days a week, replace a calorie loaded meal, with a light but filling meal like chicken breast, without the skin, a vegetable, and a small baked potato.

Did you know a baked potato has 60 calories, but that same potato made into French fries has 600 calories. The healthy meal plan above could save you one thousand calories or more in one day, depending on your normal eating habits. Learn to read food labels before buying. You may be shocked at the calories, sodium and carbohydrates in something you thought was healthy. So if the label says 300 calories, but it tells you there are four servings in there, that item has twelve hundred calories.

Make a list of healthy foods to eat. Make a list of the 10 healthiest foods, which in my opinion are fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, seeds, beans, legumes, poultry, fish, some dairy like milk for calcium, garlic (has great antioxidants), and water (yes water, a must for weight loss and general health)

Eating healthy does not mean going hungry. It is simply a plan of getting the foods that have caused the weight gain, (flour, sugar, salt, and oils) out of your life, and getting healthy again. You begin to find new ways to make great meals that are healthy and delicious. It becomes fun to sit down to a filling healthy meal, and walk away from the table feeling good.
