Weight Loss

There are countless reasons why protein is good for weight loss. It is a potent calorie burner and plays a role in building lean muscles. Plus, it keeps you fuller for longer. Dietician Neha Chandna recommends these protein-rich foods to help lose weight faster.



Eggs are one of the healthiest weight loss foods. Packed with protein and antioxidants, they boost your metabolism and also keep you in good health.


Rajma Or Kidney Beans

Consider eating a bowl of kidney beans or rajma 2-3 times a week to boost your protein intake. Plus, they are high in fibre that will keep you full for longer.


Low-fat Cottage Cheese

A cup of cottage cheese or paneer can provide you with 14 g of protein that will help you shed kilos and stay healthy.


Low-fat Milk

A cup of low-fat milk can deliver 8g of protein, which keeps your blood sugar levels stable and sugar cravings at bay. It is ideal for anyone on a weight loss diet.



Flaxseeds are high in protein and give your body a healthy dose of omega-3 fatty acids that aid weight loss.
