Perhaps the most common goal in people anywhere in the world is weight loss, many of us would like to lose those extra kilos that we have, eliminate those annoying little tires that surround us.

Many people try to achieve this goal through various means such as constant sports, a balanced diet, moderate physical activity, surgeries, “miracle” diets among others. Without a doubt, the best way to lose weight healthily is to follow a balanced diet and exercise constantly.

Many people commonly follow the famous diets of Do not eat “X” food and weight loss, and one of those very common foods are flours, which to some extent could be considered “bad” if you are looking to lose weight.

But bread and flour can be and should be consumed in a balanced diet since these are at the base of the nutritional pyramid. We should not confuse the refined flours (which are the ones that we should consume very little) with the integral flours (which we should consume more).

The group of foods on which I focus on this article is that of Foods of Animal Origin, particularly those of Very Low Fat.

It is very well known that protein helps to lose weight, due to its high biological quality that contains the essential amino acids for burning calories and helps the reconstruction of the muscle once exercised.

Not all meats are the same, some may have a great amount of protein but at the same time they can have a high level of fats, which will not help you at all in losing weight. As an example I could mention a lean beef that for each 100 grams contributes approximately 20.7 gr of protein and 5.4 gr of fat compared to 100 gr of lamb that provides 15 gr of protein and 10 g of fat.

That is why here I present a list of low-fat foods of animal origin which will give you more protein in exchange for the minimum amount of fat.
