Salmon is another low-fat protein source, so topping your salad with a piece of grilled salmon will keep hunger at bay and energy levels consistent hours after putting down your fork. It's also an excellent source of omega-3s, which not only reduce cholesterol but can also reduce inflammation to help you recover faster after an intense workout to help build more metabolism-boosting muscles. A small two-ounce serving is 116 calories and adds 12.5 grams of protein to your meal.
