What is the Worst Protein For Belly Fat? 

Belly fat is a common issue for many people, even those who are not otherwise overweight. If shedding this dreaded fat is a goal with Phentermine 37.5mg, knowing what to eat–and what to avoid–is key. So what is the worst protein for belly fat and what are some healthy alternatives? Find out what dietitians want you to know. 

The Worst Protein: Cheese

The most detrimental protein for belly fat is cheese. Despite featuring protein and calcium, cheese is high in calories. 

 “Most of the calories in cheese come from fat rather than protein,” explains The Nutrition Twins. In fact, an ounce of mozzarella cheese has about 85 calories with 60 calories coming from fat and only 23 calories of the cheese coming from protein. Fat calories add up quickly, so even a small portion of a cheese can quickly add up in calories. On the other hand, you can have a much larger portion of a high-protein food for a lot fewer calories.”

While many people do not eat cheese alone, it is a common additive to various proteins and other foods. 

“Plus, to get the same satisfying 30 grams of protein you’d get in 163 calories of chicken breast, you’d have to get 560 calories of a cheese like mozzarella,” The Nutrition Twins say. “Most people add this to their already high-calorie burgers, meat lasagna, [pastas, and loaded salads].”

Recommended Proteins

If you do not want to part with cheese, opt for low- or non-fat cheese. 

 “When some or all of the fat is skimmed from cheese, calories decrease while protein typically increases,” The Nutrition Twins note. “Protein increases satiety, so the more protein you can get in a food, the less hungry you’ll be and the less likely you’ll be to overeat. For example, two ounces of nonfat mozzarella cheese has 84 calories and 18 grams of protein while two ounces of full-fat mozzarella cheese has twice as many calories—170 calories and significantly less protein (12 grams of protein).”

Cottage cheese is a good option. 

“Although both cottage cheese and nonfat cheese are both dairy products, neither one contains artery-clogging saturated fat,” The Nutrition Twins say.For more about fast weight loss with Phentermine pills, please contact
