Eat These And Lose Weight

eat-lose-weight

Most of them skip food so as to lose weight. But did you know that some foods can help you in dropping some pounds? Yes!! It is indeed possible. “Diet foods” are generally pictured as bland steamed entrees and endless celery sticks. However, these foods need not necessarily be boring. Here, you can find delicious foods which will please your taste buds and help you reduce weight.

1. Avocados
Avocado toast is an excellent way to lose weight! Avocados are loaded with tonnes of fibre, which is a slow-digesting carb that holds your blood sugar levels uniform and aids fight off cravings. They also have healthy monounsaturated fatty acids, or the MUFAs, which have been noted in animal studies to enhance fat loss.

Begin your day with a slice of sprouted grain bread covered with avocado, sriracha and a pinch of unrefined sea salt. Or you can also blend avocado with cacao powder, dark chocolate, almond milk and agave for an avocado “pudding.”

2. Lentils
Lentils are one of the best, and cheapest, foods to support you to reduce weight. It contains tonnes of protein and fibre which comes to around 15 grammes of each per serving. It will make you feel full and satisfied between meals and thus cut off the snacking in between meals.

3. Turkey Breast

You need to skip the sodium-laden deli turkey since it will make you bloat. As an alternative, you can roast your own turkey breast and then slice thin with a sharp knife.

4. Chia Seeds
Chia seeds are good for weight loss, due to the rich fibre and calcium content. When you increase your calcium intake, it will fend off belly fat. One of the studies observed that women who don’t get sufficient calcium are more prone to pack on extra pounds.

5. Spinach
One cup of fresh spinach provides half the immune-boosting vitamin A you require for the day, all the bone-building vitamin K you need and also a gramme of filling fibre. And best of all, at seven calories per cup, you can enjoy all you can consume to stay full without breaking your diet.

Begin your lunch and dinner with spinach salad or perhaps slice spinach to add to your scrambled eggs and/or combine a few handfuls of spinach to your smoothies.

6. Cucumber
Cucumber is over 95% water by weight and hence it is great for weight loss. Water-rich foods have a moderate energy density, so you can consume a big share without getting too many calories.
Cucumber is low in calorie, and you can eat a generous portion without increasing weight and also keep you hydrated.

7. Almonds

Almonds are loaded with calories, and it will help you lose weight, reports a recent study. Almonds are hard to break down, so you burn more calories during digestion, and they’re rich in prebiotics to feed the healthy microbes in the gut.

You can opt for dry-roasted or even raw almonds and combine your own flavourings. A bit of cayenne and a pinch of lime juice, or a blend of cinnamon and ginger both increase your metabolism.

8. Kefir
Kefir has healthy protein and calcium benefits just like any other dairy products. In addition to that, it has tonnes of active probiotics to nourish the beneficial bacteria in your digestive tract. That’s necessary for weight loss, since an irregularity in your gut flora adds to obesity, and might even make it difficult for you to absorb nutrients.
