Bottom Line/HEALTH: What are the preferred proteins in the “Why Wait” program?
Osama Hamdy, MD, PhD The number-one protein always is fish. I only encourage people to eat fish. If people have fish twice per week, it is more than enough. You know this is fantastic. It is a very good source of good-quality fat—omega-3 fat—which reduces the triglycerides in blood. The second one is vegetable proteins—legumes, beans, peas, all those legumes. And then the third would be skinless chicken, turkey. Even for people who like to eat meat, just reduce the amount of fat and don’t salt that much, it would be fine. But not every day.
