High Protein Burger Recipe

High protein burger recipe, burgers on a grill

Not every enjoyable food has to be completely avoided when you’re trying to eat healthy or lose weight.

Oh heck, what am I saying? There aren’t ANY enjoyable foods that ever have to be completely avoided!

Still, there are ways to turn an infrequent indulgence into a better choice that can be enjoyed more often.

For instance, I tend to shy away from pre-made burgers in the store. Even though the convenience is incredibly tempting as a busy mom, there are a few reasons for this:

  1. They’re highly processed. (Which means more unnecessary ingredients, less nutrients, and they're less filling.)

  2. They’re usually not very lean meats. Occasional fattier meats are ok, but in the summer I like to grill burgers at least once a week.

I use this recipe to help combat those issues.

Speaking of Weight Loss & Being a Busy Parent

We recently finished beta-testing an Intensive Fat Loss program with some busy moms and dads. Now it's open to you if you're interested in achieving the same type of results our testers got.

In 8 weeks, they averaged 8 pounds of weight loss — likely more total fat than that was lost as body composition changed through fat loss and increased lean mass (aka toning up). They also lost an average of 4 total inches per person, with 2 of those inches coming from the waist.

The best part is this was all done in a way that gives the greatest chance of keeping the weight (and inches) off!

Keep in mind, that was only in two months time. If you want to lose even more than that, there's no reason why you couldn't lose closer to 30 pounds if you stuck with it for a few more months.
