Protein is a key macronutrient that can promote weight loss by contributing to muscle growth and keeping you satiated so you don’t overeat or snack all day long. It’s also a major component in maintaining healthy bones, skin, hair and nails.

Balancing your protein intake with fiber-rich veggies, low-sugar fruits and whole grains is ideal for creating a satisfying, well-rounded meal plan. This 1,500-calorie sample day shows you how to include healthy protein sources at every meal that add up to 130 grams per day.
