Every diet is extremely unique for all individuals. For some, higher carbohydrate diets are what work best, but for today I will discuss High Protein Diet Plans.
As I have previously stated, one’s caloric intake should consist of approximately 10%-35% coming from protein. When consuming a higher protein diet, we can increase that percentage by about 10%. When formulating such a diet plan, one must ensure that they are consuming an adequate amount of fruits and vegetables to ensure a balanced diet consisting of essential nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and fiber.
Sample Meal Plan for High Protein Diet Plans:
Egg white omelette
-sprinkle of oatmeal, flax seed and chia seeds
-half water, half low-fat almond milk, ice cubes blended
– 1/2 grapefruit
-1 can of white tuna in water (low sodium)
-1/4 cup of salsa
-1 tbsp low fat or fat free mayo
-topped with 1 tsp of goat cheese
Mixed and spread onto a corn tortilla and baked until cheese is melted
Celery sticks with Peanut butter, almond butter OR soy butter
Carrot sticks and Peppers
–Cod or Haddock Fish (baked in the oven with lemon juice, dill and pepper)
-1/4 cup of wild rice
Snack (if you’re still hungry)
Egg whites and Salsa
A protein milk shake, but only made with water and not the almond milk
Yet again, another delicious meal plan made for those who feel the best when eating higher amounts of protein. As I have stated before, as each individual is unique, as is the diet that comes along with them. Here you have a Healthy High Protein Diet Plan that will ensure a complete balanced diet plan to keep you feeling satisfied throughout the day!
