Weight loss diet: Soya Chunks Salad
Low-fat diet is creating a buzz these days in the world of health and nutrition. Those wanting to lose weight quickly are advised to switch to foods with fewer calories. The logic behind this is that when foods with low calories are consumed, the body ends up burning existing calories to digest these foods, hence losing weight in the process. While this may prove beneficial in getting rid of those extra pounds, it may sap the body of energy because calories amount to energy. To overcome this problem, foods rich in proteins should be eaten in tandem, to regain the lost energy. Proteins are known to replenish and energise the body and also enabling it to undergo rigorous exercise routine while preventing a feeling of lethargy.
For people on a diet and also working out regularly, the dilemma of ‘what to eat and what not to eat’ always prevails. Here, we help you with a great recipe of a weight loss-friendly dish made with low-calorie, high-protein soya chunks. Soya chunks are made from soybean, which is popularly known as vegetarian meat for its high-protein content, fibrous texture and meaty taste. A 100 gms serving of soybean can fulfil around 70% of daily protein needs of the body. Not just proteins, soybean also bristles with vitamins and minerals like iron, potassium and calcium.
