Nutritionist Caroline Thomason has listed the best protein foods for weight loss after 40. Her words are quoted by Eat This, Not That!
Thomason explained that protein helps you feel full and not feel hungry for a long time. This allows you not to overeat and avoid unnecessary snacking. She suggested adding salmon to the diet as it is rich in protein and omega-3 fatty acids.
Also, the nutritionist advised to eat at least one egg a day. According to her, this product, in addition to protein, contains vitamin D, choline and iron. Another product she recommends looking at is Greek yogurt, which can be flavored with berries, granola, and cinnamon.
For people over 40, and especially women who have experienced menopause, Thomason advises eating edamame beans rich in phytoestrogen, protein and fiber. According to her explanation, in menopause, phytoestrogens act as a mild hormone replacement therapy.
Earlier it was reported that American nutritionists have named ways to help get rid of fat in the abdomen after 50 years. According to nutritionist Michelle Fulsuksombaty, as we age, we should strive to increase the amount of fiber in the diet to 21-30 grams per day.
