Did you know that eating can help you lose unwanted weight, and keep it off? Well, it is true. There are “superfoods” packed with nutrients that not only help build bones, prevent chronic diseases, improve eyesight and even keep your mind sharp. Now there is new evidence that suggests these foods can also help you get slimmed down and stay that way. Here are just a few of them.
Oats are rich in fiber so one serving can help you feel full throughout the day. A half cup of oats provides 4.6 grams of resistant starch, a healthy carb that boosts metabolism and burns fat.
You should not be afraid to eat fats, as long as they are the right fats. Oleic acid, which is found in avocados, may trigger your body to actually reduce your hunger. Eat a quarter or half of an avocado and watch your belly fat melt away. Avocados are also packed with fiber and protein.
Lean sources of protein will help you feel full without adding additional fat. On average, half of all women between the ages of 18 and 50 don’t know if they are getting enough of the essential nutrient.
Increase your intake of protein with salmon, it is leaner than red meat and is packed full of MUFAs as well. A study held in 2001 found that dieters who ate a MUFA rich diet lost an average of 9 pounds, while dieters who had low-fat diets gained an average of 6 pounds.
Well known for their anti-aging properties, blueberries are mighty little mites when it comes to figure-friendly foods. A cup of the yummy little wonders will only set you back 80 calories, and the 4 grams of fiber will help you feel full all day.
You do not have to starve yourself to lose weight.
