You should include protein food items in your everyday meal items as protein helps you in many ways like weight loss, belly fat loss and increase in muscle mass and strength.

So, let’s take a look at the list of 15 high protein diet items that you should eat:

Eggs:


Well, whole eggs are included among the healthiest food items on the planet. Eggs are full with minerals, healthy fats, vitamins, antioxidants for eye protection and many brain nutrients that most of the people don’t get sufficient of.

Even though a whole egg is high in protein but egg whites are almost all protein. 1 Large egg has 6 grams of protein and 78 calories.

Almonds are a type of tree nut and it is a very popular one. The important nutrient with which almonds are loaded with are vitamin E, fiber, magnesium and manganese.

Peanuts are very delicious and I like them a lot. Peanuts contain a very high amount of magnesium, fiber and of course, protein and are very helpful in losing weight. 28 grams of peanuts contain 7 grams of protein and 159 calories.
