If only there was some magic pill that could give you everything you needed for weight loss and good health.  Unfortunately, no such pill exists, but there are everyday foods that can serve both the purposes.

weight loss foodsThere are many foods that not only promote wellness and weight control, but also taste good. These fill you up without adding excess calories and are easy to include in everyday meals. These super foods for weight loss (fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products) are nutritious foods and should therefore be part of a healthful diet.

Losing weight is a challenge, but there exist some foods that can supercharge your efforts. The following foods can help you with portion control, appetite control and will also give you additional energy. Moreover, they will help you find new ways of savouring healthful foods, getting you closer to your weight-loss goal.

 

Fruits and Veggies

Fruits and vegetables are key to any weight loss diet. These supply most of the essential nutrients needed and the least calories. Fresh or frozen fruits can satisfy craving or be eaten as part of a speedy lunch. A study by the Scripps Clinic in California found that grapefruit is a natural fat-fighter that can help a person to shed extra pounds. Likewise, fruits such as blueberries, blackberries, cranberries, raspberries, strawberries, pomegranate and apple can help you lose weight fast.

 

Breakfast Cereals

A breakfast rich in whole grain cereals will provide you with a healthy start to the day. These help boost energy levels. You may couple them up with dried fruits or a few spoons of yoghurt for a satisfying mini-meal.

 

Fat-free Dairy Products

Low-fat forms of dairy products offer all the nutritional value and contribute to significant calorie saving.

 

Whole Grains

Whole grains are complex carbohydrates that help you feel full, owing to their high fibre content. They release sugars slowly into the bloodstream and also keep blood sugar levels from spiking.

 

Lean Proteins

Protein foods such as lean meats and whole eggs provide satiety. Keep red meats as lean as possible when trying to lose weight.

 

Fish

Fish such as salmon help stimulate weight loss besides keeping the heart healthy. Omega-3 fatty acid in them makes the body more sensitive to insulin, which can help you get rid of extra fat around the waist.

 

Oats

Oatmeal is an excellent weight loss food; helps you stay full longer and ensures you don’t snack unhealthy, calorie-laden foods.

 

Salads

Salads with lettuce are low in calories and the high water content in them aids in weight loss. Make a low-calorie salad that has vegetables such as tomato, carrot, cabbage and cucumber to give your body fibre and carbohydrates needed to get rid of excess weight.

 

One of the easiest and best ways to lose weight is to make healthy changes to your diet. Your food choices should be such that they rev up metabolism, control hunger, burn calories and stabilize blood sugar levels.

    In 9 days I lost 11 lbs & then another 10 lbs after struggling for years, why? When hungry our body holds on to its valuable energy source which is fat and a build up of toxins hinders absorption of nutrients.
