High Protein Foods

Protein Molecule
The main problem with dieting and fasting I’ve seen is that you lose muscle.  Because your muscles are made of protein, consuming protein will help avoid muscle loss.  Consuming a greater percentage of high protein whole foods in your diet is a healthy way to maintain, tone, or build muscle while you slowly cleanse.  The below list shows grams of protein per specified amount of food, to help you create a diet that is high in healthy protein.
