1Power Up with Proteins

Since protein has a high thermic effect, your body will burn more calories to digest it. Score! When it comes to protein, Amanda Carlson-Phillips, vice president of nutrition and research for Core Performance, recommends including a lean protein source in every meal.

“Eating five to six mini meals per day and including a lean protein source such as low-fat cheese, beans, chicken, fish, or peanut butter on every plate is a great way to rev your metabolism and keep you feeling energized and fueled all day long,” she says.
