2. Chicken Breast

If you’re trying to lose weight or cut fat, chicken is another lean protein source that should be a staple in your diet. Muscles need protein to fuel your recovery, meaning you’ll get stronger in less time. With 20 grams of protein and practically no fat, chicken breasts are a great post workout food to help you shed excess weight. Like eggs, you can make chicken in a bunch of different ways too. Bake it, braise it, lightly pan fry it in a little coconut oilβ€”the possibilities are endless.
