Protein is scarce in most local diets and the importance of eating protein is largely unknown. What's considered a high protein diet here is usually not even adequate, let alone high.
So, any suggestions about how to remedy that?
Probably adopt the American diet. It's the most protein-rich, so it must be the best.
I'm trying to get rid of my "lard", not the opposite! Besides, I don't like Bacon, so the American diet is not for me
Restrict your caloric intake ... 1,800 Kcal/day would be ok if you have low exercise regimen, no exercise would be 1,500 kcal/day ... low fat, protein-carbs balanced (or maybe slightly more protein) ... lots of veggies
Preferable, chicken/fish, lean beef or even lean pork. Omelets, (soy)milk(low fat), nuts
But, nothing beats exercise!
