2. White-Fleshed Fish

White-fleshed fish such as cod, haddock, flounder and tilapia, as well as other white-fleshed fish, are all lean choices of animal protein. These white fish contain omega-3 fatty acids, which is a healthy source of fat, making them a beneficial addition to a healthy diet.

Adding fish to a diet can be a great way to reduce calorie intake while still getting the lean protein to curb hunger. The bonus is getting those omega-3 fats that make this a heart-healthy choice.
