Trying to get in shape for summer? Well now that it's just around the corner, it's time to head to the gym and start loading up on protein! Protein helps your body burn fat and build muscle, so if you want some Insta-worthy abs, you definitely want to load up on some protein! Here are some high-protein foods that won't make the number on your weight scale higher.

eggs

According to nutritionist Kris Gunnars, BSc, whole eggs are one of the greatest foods for weight loss. "They are loaded with vitamins, minerals, healthy fats, eye-protecting antioxidants and brain nutrients that most people don’t get enough of," she said. Egg whites are almost purely protein, so don't skip on this healthy breakfast food!

turkey bacon

Turkey bacon is a great option to get protein without all of the fat and grease that's in regular pork bacon. Turkey is a lean meat, so it's high in protein and contains very little fat. 

peanut butter toast

Peanut butter and other nut butters are a great topping for your toast without getting all the fat and calories of regular butter. However, be careful about which peanut butter you buy, since most of them contain tons of sugar. For an all-natural, healthier peanut butter, try this easy recipe!

dairy

Dairy is an excellent source of protein! But, you need to be careful about which types of dairy products you eat, since many of them contain a ton of saturated fat that can make you gain weight. Try getting low-fat or skim options, and Gunnars recommends eating these dairy products: cottage cheese, plain Greek yogurt, and milk.
