Adding these foods in your diet will sure help you losing weight – Time to burn some fat
Keeping your weight balanced can be hard; especially if you indulge in consuming unhealthy food. No matter how much you work out and how much you try to starve yourself, it seems that those kilograms (or pounds, whatever) somehow won’t go away. These are the foods that are weight and fat killers according to nutritionists and there is no harm in adding them in your diet.
This actually a great food (of course, do not consume with chips or alcohol) and is surprisingly low in calories. Make an easy low-cal substitute for nacho layer dip by putting hummus on the bottom of a dish, layering with salsa, and then topping with olives or lettuce. Instead of chips, try homemade crackers, which are made of brown rice, flax and sesame seeds.
There has been a misconception that eating only egg whites is best, but go ahead and eat the whole thing. It tastes better, and half the protein is found in the yolk. Proteins like those found in eggs yolks stimulate the release of the hormone glucagon, that aids in fat burning and actually fights off belly fat. The egg yolk has vitamin E in it, plus it will also help keep you fuller for longer.
3 Raw Almonds and Almond Butter
Almonds have better quality and are rich in vitamin E, an antioxidant that counteracts free-radical damage. Not only are almonds good for your hair and skin, they’re also rich in magnesium and vitamin B2, which help calm nerves and combat stress. The B2 vitamin in almonds help with that while boosting your energy levels.
4 Dark Chocolate
You can’t give up chocolate? We know how you feel. Pick a square or two of dark over the milky version. In one study, chocolate lovers, who were given dark chocolate ate 15% less pizza a few hours later than those who had eaten milk chocolate.
5 Pureed Vegetables
You can add more veggies to your diet, enjoy your “cheat” foods, and cut back on the calories you’re eating, all at the same time. American researchers from Pennsylvania added pureed cauliflower and zucchini to mac and cheese, people seemed to like the dish just as much. But they ate 200 to 350 fewer calories.
A must in every diet. It is good for your waistline and also for your intestines. A Harvard study followed more than 120,000 people for a decade or longer. Yogurt, of all the foods that were tracked, was most closely linked to weight loss. That doesn’t prove that yogurt caused weight loss, but it stood out among other foods.
And by apples we mean eating the fruit, not drinking apple juices. Apples would keep you full for a longer while and are extremely beneficial for your entire health. Keep in mind that the raw fruit has more fiber. Plus, chewing sends signals to your brain that you’ve eaten something substantial.
8 Chia Seeds
Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, and iron, chia seeds are great for weight loss because they act like a sponge, absorbing sugar and stabilizing blood sugar levels. Because of their high fiber content, the tiny seeds can hold up to twenty times their weight in water, so when they’re mixed with liquid they plump up and absorb excess moisture. Add them to your oatmeal or put them in a bowl with unsweetened chocolate almond milk; they will absorb the liquid and gelatinize, similar to the consistency of a rice pudding.
Research reports suggest that when people ate mushroom-based entrees, they felt just as satisfied as when they’d eaten those same dishes made with beef; though they’d taken in a fraction of the calories and fat. Unless you are allergic or your stomach can’t process them, then there’s no reason for not eating them.
Eating a breakfast made with “slow-release” carbohydrates, such as oatmeal or bran cereal, three hours before you exercise may help you burn more fat, suggests a recent study in the Journal of Nutrition. According to the study, eating “slow-release” carbohydrates didn’t spike blood sugar as high as eating refined carbohydrates, such as white toast. In turn, insulin levels didn’t spike as high and because insulin plays a role in signaling your body to store fat, having lower levels may help you burn fat.
