Weight loss fads come and go. It seems like every day there is a new pill, a new process or even a new torture device that promises to help shed your extra pounds with little or no inconvenience or effort from you.
The usual effects of these “miracle” weight loss gimmicks are usually the same. They either don’t work at all or, if you do lose weight, you usually wind up gaining it right back just as fast.
It’s amazing what people will go through to lose a few pounds of extra weight when all they really need to do is just make a healthier change in the foods they eat. Here is a list of natural foods that will help you lose those extra pounds:
Even with the bad reputation of raising cholesterol (which was proven untrue), eggs are one of the best foods you can eat to lose weight. High in protein and healthy fats, eggs have the ability to make you feel full with an extremely low number of calories.
Kale, spinach, collards, Swiss chards and other leafy greens have several properties that make them perfect for any weight loss diet. They are low in carbs and calories, however, high in fiber.
Salmon and other oily fish is very healthy. Low in calories and very satisfying, salmon will keep you feeling full for hours. Salmon is also a significant provider of iodine which is a nutrient that keeps your metabolism operating smoothly.
Proven to contain several health benefits, fruit is also excellent for weight loss. Unless they are packed in syrup, it doesn’t matter that much if the fruit is fresh, frozen or canned because all forms still retain the natural nutrients.
Even though they are high in fat, nuts aren’t fattening. Studies have shown that nuts have the ability to improve metabolic health, which will aid in weight loss.
That’s right chili peppers are helpful in losing those unwanted pounds. These spicy delights contain capsaicin, which has been proven to reduce appetite and increase the burning of unwanted fat.
Capsaicin has been proven so effective in weight loss that it’s found in several different commercial weight loss supplements.
It also needs to be noted, no matter what you eat, or don’t eat, any healthy diet or transition to healthier eating habits must include regular exercise. Without exercising regularly, not only will you not lose the weight and keep it off, but you won’t be healthy doing it.
Most times when people hear they need to include a regiment of regular exercise in their daily routine they immediately get mental pictures of pumping iron or running several miles in the morning. Nothing is further from the truth.
Sometimes all you need is to get out there and get the blood circulating and bring your heart rate up. Before starting a regular schedule of exercise, check with a professional who will be able to give you guidance on what forms of exercise are needed to accomplish your goals.
The next time you find yourself struggling to shed those extra unwanted kilos don’t turn to a pill, use this guide and eat your way to a slimmer you.
