Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast
Eating a diet of 1,000 calories with foods that don't have any nutritional value is exactly what you shouldn't do if you want to lose weight. Instead, eating foods high in protein will provide nutrition and fill you up for longer periods of time. This means you'll be burning calories without any work as your body digests, metabolizes, and uses the protein.
The amount every person needs will vary based on their goals, body size, and training styles — this chart is helpful. As always, you've got to have all the pieces of the puzzle to lose weight. Eating clean, eating protein, and being consistent with your workouts and lifestyle will help you drop the pounds. And because we aren't doctors, be sure to speak to your doctor before making any drastic dietary changes.
