The first food that I want to introduce to you is oats. Oats are considered a carbohydrate source, but before you freak out and start the “low-carb” discussion you need to know that oats are a whole grain products that will make you feel full and also help you to get rid of bad cholesterol. They also contain healthy fiber and are therefore a great choice for anyone looking to lose weight.
Next up on the list are eggs. Eggs are a great source of protein without the bad fats associated with animal proteins. In addition to this, there are studies that show that if you replace your daily morning toast with an egg or two, you will lose twice as much weight as if you would just by cutting carbohydrates in your breakfast.
Number three on the list is skim milk. Skim milk can help you to trigger weight loss and maintain lean muscle mass due to the high amount of vitamins and minerals contained in skim milk. This will help you to lose weight and get leaner and fitter.
Apples are a great choice for anyone looking to lose weight. They will not only make you feel full and thus eat less throughout the day, they will also help reduce cholesterol, prevent diabetes and due to a nutrient called pectin will cut the amount of fat your cells can absorb. If that doesn’t sound like a smart choice to you, then I don’t know what does.
Another great food choice is red meat. Red meat will help you to build more muscle mass due to its high protein content. If you are in this to lose weight, go buy some red meat!
Cinnamon is a very common spice that is used for a variety of dishes. A nice side-effect of cinnamon is that it helps your body to metabolize sugar. This will help to cut blood sugar levels and thus rid your body of excess sugar. Cinnamon is a great addition to many beverages and thus easy to incorporate in your daily routine.
Almonds and almond butter are also great choices. Almonds are very calorie dense and will give you clean energy without sugar. Almond butter will allow you to enjoy a toast for example while preventing the carbs from the toast to peak your blood sugar levels.
As you can see there are many great food choices which you can implement immediately. Hopefully this list of 7 foods that help weight loss will help guide you into the right direction to finally lose those unwanted pounds.
