Strategy to Steal:Include protein in every meal. This high-protein plan gets a bad rap because it gives the green light to foods high in health-hindering saturated fat, like bacon and beef. But if you’re picky about your protein -- opting for lean sources like turkey breast, beans, egg whites and chicken breasts -- you’ll do your figure a favor, says Morgan. “That’s because protein is very satiating, and when you feel full, you’re less likely to choose diet-sabotaging foods. That is why it’s a good idea to have a few ounces at every meal.” Try a handful of nuts, two slices of turkey breast or a hard-boiled egg.
