How safe are high-protein diets


Nowadays, people, especially meat lovers are going for high-protein and low-carb diets. They are filling up their plates with high-protein snacks and foods like bacon, steak, cheese, and nuts.

Increasing the consumption of fatty meats and dairy foods raises your cholesterol and risk of a heart attack. Also, avoiding vegetables and fruits reduces your intake of fiber and many essential nutrients. It is better to consume a moderate diet with reduced fat and healthy carbohydrates instead of going for just high-protein diets.

Choosing a High-Protein Diet:

Make sure you don't go for an extreme diet plan. The best high-protein diets do include some carbs and are low in fat. Enormous portions of fatty meats are not part of a healthy high-protein diet.

What are high-protein food that you can consume?

Opt for lean cuts of beef as they are a high protein option with less fat.

White meat with no skin is a good option as removing the skin reduces the fat concentration. Lean cuts of pork is also a healthy choice. You can include rib chops, sirloin steak, top loin, or shoulder blade steaks for more protein.

Moderate amount of Tofu, soybeans and all kinds of legumes and pulses can be consumed. Fish and egg whites are great, low-fat source of proteins.

Dairy products such as milk, cheese, and yogurt are also protein sources.
