Help me out here! Are proteins good to eat and if so when is the best time? Which proteins are considered lean proteins and why? Lastly do you really get energy from eating proteins?

Are they good to eat? Of course they are! They're essential for your body. When is the best time to eat them? I'd say a little with every meal, same as with fat and carbs.

Yes proteins are very good for the body and for giving energy. I always have some protein after a workout as it helps to repair the muscles

Proteins also help stabilize blood sugar, which is easier on your body and helps you feel full longer. Good lean proteins include chicken and turkey, especially if you stick with white meat.

Yes especially after working out if you do. I have a protein shake after workouts but also eat a lot of eggs. Cottage cheese with salads or on cracker bread with some cucumber.

I was always under the impression that high protein foods made you feel full. Is that right?

Yes I've read that high protein foods keep you fuller for longer than high carb foods.

Yea higher protein foods keep you feeling fuller for linger! I get my protein from things like beans and pulses and they do really fill you up and obviously don't have the fat content of meat/dairy!
