How to eat 30 g of protein at BREAKFAST for weight loss.

Maybe you have heard that having 30 grams of protein at breakfast time can help you not only to lose weight but reduce craving, feel more satisfied and build muscle if you workout properly. 

This doesn’t mean that you have to eat 30 grams of any high protein food. Any food is constructed of water, minerals, vitamins, fats, carbs and protein, no it's not only protein.

As an example one egg has around 7 grams of protein . 

But before you stuffed your face with 4 to 5 eggs each morning, you can also get protein from: 

  • Animal proteins 

  • Lactose 

  • Nuts and seeds 

  • Cereals and grains 

So to have 30 grams of protein can look like this 

Eggs with vegetables and a coffee 

  • 3 eggs (21 g of protein) 

  • 1 cup of vegetables (2 g of protein) 

  • 2 slices of whole bread (6 g of protein) 

  • Coffee with ½ cup of milk (4.5 g of protein) 

So as you can see you can have a more balanced meal high in protein without adding to more animal products or protein powder. BUT knowing how to balance each meal with the correct way can be a great option.
