A High-Protein Meal Plan to Aid Weight Loss

Protein and fiber-rich meals and snacks will satisfy you regardless of your health goals.

Not all belly fat is equal. Certain belly fat is important for warmth and protection. 

 But too much visceral adipose tissue (VAT)—fat around your organs in your abdomen—can be harmful. 

 In a 2020 Circulation Research review, researchers noted that multiple big studies have demonstrated that excess VAT increases the risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

While genetics determine where people store fat, lifestyle adjustments can lower VAT and disease risk. 

 These lifestyle factors include getting enough sleep, decreasing stress, exercising, and eating protein, fiber, and healthy fats.

Protein provides essential nutrients and health advantages. Protein and fiber keep our bellies filled.
