Lots of people who take their diet and exercise routines seriously use protein shakes. These shakes contain the extra nutrients needed to boost your body and help you see quicker, better results. But if you're just using the shake powder and nothing else week after week, you'll get a bit bored of the same old vanilla shake every day.
Rice and Beans Good old rice and beans; most people are familiar with this combination. One cup of cooked medium-grain brown rice contains 218 calories and half a cup of black beans offers 110 calories. Throw in some veggies, and you have a satisfying meal under 400 calories.
