Avoiding certain foods like too many carbohydrates and foods high in fat is an essential step for every weight loss seeker to follow. In addition, knowing what kinds of food that help aid in weight loss is equally important.
Eating a diversity of foods from the various food groups will help you get the right nutrients that you will need to burn the fat and lose weight.
Research shows that people get full depending on the amount of food they eat so to create a caloric deficit without eating less you will need to replace your “usual” food with lower calories.
What Are These Foods That Make You Lose Weight?
1. It’s a common knowledge that you will need to avoid eating excess fat when trying to lose weight, but you should not avoid foods where you can get the essential fat. Fish, nuts and olives are rich in essential fat and our body uses them as fuel.
2. Eat foods that are made of whole grains and high in fiber like whole wheat bread, brown rice, fruits and vegetables. Most fruits and vegetable are of low-calorie foods and they can surely fill you up just be careful on how you prepare them. Just keep it simple, steam your veggies and spice them up a little. You need those low carbohydrate substitutes as a source of energy.
3. Foods which are high in protein will help you build strong muscles and bones, and they do not make your blood glucose fluctuate, unlike carbohydrates. You can get protein from meat and poultry, dried beans or peas. Be sure to take off the skin from your chicken or turkey.
4. Drink a lot of water. This is the most underrated way of trying to lose weight. Water helps you flush out toxins from your body and if you have a good body circulation, it will be easier for you to lose weight. Try having your own one-liter bottle in the fridge, put some slices of lemon to it (increases metabolism) and be sure that you get to drink AT LEAST 2 liters before you sleep. I repeat, guzzle water if you can.
The key to proper weight loss is not in miracle pills or crash diets. It is about eating the foods that will fill you up without consuming a significant amount of calories but also not be depriving yourself by eating a lot less amount of food.
