It is not easy to design a perfect dinner that suits the weight-loss regimen. Stress and temptation can make us tired and hence we cannot make a perfect plate that can help us lose weight and also satisfy our palette. Dietician Shira Lenchewski says that often we discard protein from our dinner.

She said that it is not good as we need protein to increase the muscle mass and for weight loss as it would keep us full for longer period of time.
