The health body explains: “Protein can be a helpful way to lose weight because it makes you feel fuller than carbs and fat do.”
It continues: “So if you include a lean source of protein, such as skinless white chicken, in your meals you may find that you’re not as hungry, and so eat less.”
Good sources include chicken breast, tuna, mackerel, salmon, eggs, milk, red lentils, chickpeas, brown bread, nuts and soya.
In addition to eating well, exercise offers a robust defence against belly fat.
