Most diets have one big problem attached to them: They ask you to eat a lot of tasteless food that you don’t really enjoy, while dodging practically every type of food that you do enjoy, which primarily includes meat.
Truth is though, if you go about it in the right way, you can still eat most of your favorite foods, albeit with a few essential alterations that make them a lot healthier and a lot less calorie heavy.
By learning these few simple alterations, you’ll find that you’re able to enjoy your meat, and still end up losing weight!
1. Remove the skin from any meat you eat
Right underneath the skin of most types of meat there is a layer of very undesirable fat that lurks there waiting. While you might normally enjoy eating chicken drumsticks and other such meats with the skin attached, you should definitely try to avoid them.
Instead, go for meats that have the skin removed. Normally, you should be able to buy them directly from pretty much any butcher or store.
2. Choose lean meats as opposed to more fatty cuts
For meats such as beef and pork in particular, depending on the cut of meat the content of fat can differ greatly. What you should be looking for are the leanest cuts of meat, such as the sirloin, which have the least fat and the most meat.
That way, what you’re eating should be pretty much just protein, and very little, if any, of the fat that you’re trying so hard to avoid.
3. Avoid fried meats
Yes, sadly fried chicken is off the menu, but the good news is that you can broil, grill, boil, or roast your meat as much as you like. Also, while you’re cooking you should try to remove any excess fat that surfaces, leaving your meat as clean as possible!
See how easy it is to dodge the fatty parts of meat and still be able to eat some of your favorite foods? Sure, it isn’t perfect, but it is a sight better than having to avoid meats entirely, right?
Apply these simply steps and you’ll be able to lose weight while not having to resort to just bland, pasty-like substances for the bulk of your diet!
