As I discuss in this article, protein helps with weight loss because it uses more calories to digest than fat or carbohydrates. It also is more satisfying and keeps you full longer. Protein consumption is also important for maintaining or improving muscle mass.

Oven roasted chicken breasts are quick and easy to prepare. So even when you are feeling exhausted you can throw these in the oven in no time. They can also be prepared as part of a meal prep day.
