Choose Lean Proteins
What's a little extra effort if it means a few more calories get burned in the process? You've probably noticed that it takes a bit longer to eat a chicken breast than to wolf down a bowl of ice cream or bag of chips — all that extra chewing can translate to a 30 percent higher calorie burn! Lean proteins also require more energy to digest while still keeping you feeling full and satisfied. The harder the body works, the more calories you burn.
