Foods That Help You to Lose Weight

By Cem Guven Subscribe to RSS | April 27th 2012 | Views:

Everyone’s on a mission to lose weight! But rather than spending hundreds of dollars on diet plans and supplements it makes sense to incorporate a few foods that are known to help you reduce weight. Here are some of them:

Fruits: Apples, kiwi fruits, grape fruits etc are not only known to be healthy, but also help in reducing weight. These fruits take time to chew and also fill you up easily, thereby helping you to reduce weight. Citrus fruits are known to be rich in vitamin C and foliate. They are also known to help in digestion of fatty food.

Eggs: Eggs are the best source of protein and help you to feel full for a longer period of time. In fact, a study on obese women concluded that women who ate two scrambled eggs with two slices of toast consumed fewer calories for the next 36 hours as compared to women who ate the traditional breakfast. The protein in eggs helps in controlling food cravings by preventing your blood sugar levels to spike.

Green Tea: Green tea is your best companion if you are looking to lose weight naturally. Green tea contains catechins that are known to speed metabolism and burn fat. It is also known to be rich in antioxidants and keeps common problems like cold and flu at bay.

Salads: Salads are the primary source of fiber in a diet. But make sure to avoid dressings that are fattening. Asparagus, tomatoes, beans, carrots, cucumber, spinach, are some veggies that can be eaten raw or blanched. You can also add potatoes to this combination. Potatoes aren’t as unhealthy as they are made to be. They turn unhealthy because of the way we eat them. When baked and boiled and without fatty garnishing, potatoes are healthy.

Fish: Fish is rich in protein and hence very healthy. They make you feel full for a longer time. They are low in calories and high in omega-3 fatty acids. This essential fat is used by the body to keep the blood from clotting easily and keeps cholesterol under check. Although fish contains essential healthy oils, even the fattiest fish contains less fat that lean beef and chicken.

Soups: Even the simplest of soup can help as an appetite suppressant, because the brain perceives it as a filling food, thus causing you to eat less. Moral of the story: Drink a cup of chicken soup at least half an hour before you eat your dinner or lunch.
