Getting a sufficient amount of protein is very important for your health. This is why the RDI (Recommended Daily Intake) for protein is 50 grams a day (Click Here) Having a high protein intake helps with weight loss, your overall health and increases muscle mass.
So today I would like to share with you the super six ways to increase your protein intake.
Make Sure Protein Comes First- when you are eating your meal. Protein gets you feeling satisfied and full, also high protein intakes decrease levels of hunger pains.
Eating protein first can help you with your blood sugar and insulin levels and keep them from rising too high after eating a meal.
Have Cheese Snacks- This is a fantastic way to get the extra protein into your diet, as long as you choose the right cheeses.
If you actually look at the typical snacks consumed by the majority of people which included: Crisp (Chips), Crackers, and Biscuits, etc they are all very low in protein.
I’ll give you an example: One 35 g bag of salt and vinegar Walkers Crisp (Chips) contains 184 calories and only has 2.3 grams of protein in it.
In comparison to Cheddar cheese which contains 6.97 to 7 grams of protein, with 4 times the amount of calcium too.
DID YOU KNOW?: Cheese is of great benefit to heart health, as it does not raise cholesterol levels very high, not even with people who have very high cholesterol.
Have Eggs First Thing In The Morning- If you’re not going to take the time to learn how to read and understand food labels (Click Here) then you would be better off not purchasing cereal at all! As the ones that are typically chosen are the really sugary ones, which is just setting you back on your weight loss goals.
Eggs however are not only
Bey better for you anyway, they also provide so much more protein than the likes of cereals (including the healthy ones), toast and bagels.
Eating eggs for breakfast makes sure you are fuller for much longer, which means you end up eating fewer calories later on in the day.

Choose Leaner Cuts Of Meat- This will add more protein to your meals, and of course lower calories.

Add Protein To Your Salad– as you may know vegetables provide vitamins, minerals and antioxidants which protect us from many diseases.
The thing with salad though, it does not contain a lot of protein, which leaves you really hungry after an hour or so.
So adding protein to your salad should be top of your to do list. “Which protein foods though”? Some examples below…
Tuna: 25 g
Turkey Breast: 24 g
Cheese: 22 g
DID YOU KNOW?: Alternatively if you are looking for some good plant based ones… Chickpeas are a great choice 19 g of protein per 100 g, and also Almonds which contain 21 g per 100 g.
Eat Fish- Lot’s of it too! This will boost your protein intake. I would recommend if you want to increase your fish intake ASAP to go for canned fish because for one, it requires no refrigeration, which also means you can travel with it. It’s more ideal to make as a snack or a meal, for everyone who cannot fillet a fish properly.
Though I do encourage you eat all the fatty fish like Sardines, Herring & Salmon. They are great sources of omega-3 fatty acids, which help fight against inflammation and improves your heart health (Click Here)
