8 Foods for a Weight Loss Friendly Diet
Here are the 8 most weight loss friendly foods on earth, that can be a part of your diet. Not all foods are created equal and they behave differently in the body.
Eggs - they are among the best foods you can eat if you need to lose weight. They’re high in protein, contain healthy fats, and can make you feel full with a very low number of calories. A healthy breakfast choice
Leafy greens - they have several properties that make them perfect for a weight loss diet. They are low in both calories and carbohydrates, but loaded with fiber. They can increase the volume of the meal so you get full easily. They may be the hardest to add to your diet but chose the ones you like; you will stand a better chance of sticking to the diet. There is a veggie out there for everyone.
Fish - is a healthy meat option. It is also very satisfying, keeping you full for many hours with relatively few calories. Salmon and Tuna are high in protein and is a good supplier of omega- fatty acids and iodine.
Meat Lover – we know you love meat. I am not saying to cut it out, but I am saying to chose you meat sections wisely. Lean Beef and Chicken Breast are the healthy choice. Although processed meat is unhealthy, unprocessed red meat does NOT raise the risk of heart disease or diabetes. Meat is a weight loss friendly food, because it’s high in protein and low in carbs. So coupled with low carb foods, it is great.
Beans and Legumes - are beneficial for weight loss. This includes lentils, black beans, kidney beans among others. These foods tend to be high in protein and fiber, and is quite filling
Soups – Eating some of the same food mentioned above, but prepared in a soup instead of as solid food, makes people feel more satiated and eat significantly fewer calories
Fruits – great for snack times, filled with enough sugars to perk you up especially during those a down time in the days. Low energy can be an issue in some types of diet. Even though they contain sugar, they also take a while to chew and have fiber that helps prevent the sugar from being released too quickly into the bloodstream. Nuts are good for snack time as well, longer chew time leads to eating less.
Yogurt - another excellent dairy food. Yogurt contains probiotic bacteria that can improve the function of your gut. Having a healthy gut may potentially help protect against inflammation and leptin resistance, (which is the main hormonal driver of obesity.)
