Best Foods for Weight Loss


Blueberries are a healthy snack for when you are trying to lose weight.

Food, today, is being studied more closely than ever. A vast amount of research is conducted globally to understand how different types of food affect our bodies, what kinds of food can cause allergies, which are your best sources of nutrients, and if food can help in successful weight loss. Studies have revealed that eating the right kinds of food can do your body a world of good and simultaneously encourage you to eat lesser, thus enabling weight loss. So what are the kinds of food you should reach out for? For a start, make foods that contain fiber a part of your every day as they help you stay fuller while eliminating toxins present in the body. Low fat foods, as well as foods with high water content are nutritious, give you a boost of energy, and have fewer calories.

Eating to become a slimmer you has never been easier. For a perky start to your morning, enjoy an omelet and a bowl of bran flakes for breakfast. Protein found in eggs helps you stay fuller, whereas bran flakes are full of fiber. Stay away from processed noodles for lunch, and opt for a bowl of oatmeal or a plate of buckwheat pasta with vegetables instead. Both are digested slowly by the body leaving you fuller, and have a low impact on blood sugar as well. Even the vegetables you eat every day play an important role in keeping weight at bay. Kale, pumpkins and lentils are low on calories, are fiber rich and have many other health benefits. Get your dose of heart loving monosaturated fat by including avocados in your diet. If your meal is not complete without a non-vegetarian touch, then choose healthy options such as sardines, salmon and organic beef. Sardines are full of proteins and contain omega 3 fatty acids, which act as mood enhancers and are good for the heart. Salmon too, is loaded with omega 3 fatty acids, which enable muscle building, and help in trimming body fat. Organic beef is full of metabolism stimulating protein, which helps one feel fuller and thereby eat lesser.

It may be easier to dig into a blueberry muffin for a snack, than to eat a handful of goji berries and blueberries, but choosing the latter ensures that you give your body a cocktail of antioxidants, minus the fat and processed sugar. For dessert, dig into a healthy fruit salad. Dice up some fiber rich apples, antioxidant loaded pomegranates and lycopene enriched grapefruit. For better flavour, add a dollop of yogurt, which can help ward off hunger by keeping your sugar levels steady. When you feel tired, and need a refresher, say no to that fizzy drink in your fridge. Make a cup of warm green tea, which is rich in antioxidants, protects the heart, helps in regulating blood sugar and raises the rate of metabolism in the body. In addition, green tea is a proven de- stressor.

So, the next time, you look into the mirror and wish you could be slimmer- remember that your aids to weight loss, await you in your kitchen. Start eating more and weighing less today!
