9 High Protein Low Carb Recipes for Faster Fat Loss

high protein low carb recipes

If you're trying  to lose weight we suggest reducing your carbs to encourage fat loss. You'll see faster results and therefore stick to the diet for longer getting even more fat loss results.

 

Whether you're cutting them from lunch, dinner or going all out cold turkey, we went on the search for high protein low carb recipes that taste good and keep you feeling full.

 

There are not many things worse than feeling hungry when you start a low carb diet. The key is to eat regularly say every 2-3 hours and fill up on lots of vegetables, not so much salad but vegetables, plus a good source of protein.

 

Ensuring you have a decent amount of protein helps reduce any muscle breakdown for energy needs within the body and aids in protein synthesis. Which is very important for muscle repair after your strenuous HIIT workouts.

 

With these factors in mind, we've put together some of our favourite recipes to help you lose weight faster. These meals are suitable for lunch or dinner.

 

Roasted tomatoes and Shrimp With Zucchini Noodles

Prawn and courgette spaghetti for us Brits. This is such a vibrant dish extremely low in calories and carbs whilst being packed full of goodness zucchinis are packed full of vitamin C and B-6 plus some added Vitamin C and A from the tomatoes. The prawns provide a nice helping of much needed protein. Give this dish a go but be careful not to overcook the spiralized veg as it can go soggy!

Grilled Brochette Chicken

I absolutely love brochette,  I must confess bread beats chicken but this recipe does make chicken more appealing and of course healthier.  It's a grilled chicken breast topped with mozzarella cheese and fresh tomato and basil. Doesn't it make your mouth water just thinking of it. Perhaps serve it up with an extra side salad as its quite a small dish.

Asparagus and Tomato Frittata Slice

 

On to eggs, what you hear about eating to many eggs is bad for you is just a myth. This recipe says it serves 4 however we would suggest it would serve 2-3 based on protein content and the fact you're not eating carbs.

 

We love frittatas and they can easily be cooled and stored to eat over a few days. Serve it up with a side salad or veg for added fibre.
