It is necessary for women who want to lose weight to build lean muscle. The more muscle mass she has, the greater amount of fat is burned throughout the day.
In order to build lean muscle, protein should be eaten at regular intervals of the day. Studies have proven that protein is difficult to over eat as well as having an appetite suppressing effect that makes you feel fuller. Carbohydrates, on the other hand, are easy to overeat. By moderating your carbs and eating a lean protein at every meal is a way to control your calorie intake.
Here is a quick and easy breakfast option that is high in protein and paired with carbs which will get you started on the right track.
