Protein is, directly and indirectly, involved in weight loss. In our daily life, we all take protein in different ways. Sources of protein include both in the vegetables and meats like dairy products, fish and eggs, whole grains, and all kinds of nuts. Vegetarians shouldn’t worry about protein because there is a lot of vegan protein available.
