Foods for Weight Loss

Posted by Data Locker - A Pot of Information on January 22, 2009

datalockerYou don’t have to eat less or go on a diet just to burn some fats from your body and eventually lose weight. There are particular foods you can eat which will help you meet your desired goal. Speaking of which we are talking about power foods that are naturally filling, nutrient packed and, yes proven to help get the pounds out of your body.

The following are the seven best foods for weight loss:

Steak

Women on a diet that included red meat lost more weight than those eating equal calories but little beef, according to a study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. The protein present in it helps you keep your muscle mass during weight loss, and muscle incinerates more calories than fat, so you will shed more stubborn pudge.

Eggs

A study from the Louisiana State University at Baton Rouge found that women on a low-calorie diet who ate an egg with toast and jelly each morning lost twice as many pounds as those who had a bagel breakfast with the same number of calories but no eggs. Turns out, egg protein is particularly satisfying, so you likely eat less during the course of the day.

Lentils

These beans can help banish belly bloat and reduce your belt size. Chock full of protein and soluble fiber, lentils can stabilize blood sugar levels and prevent insulin spikes that cause your body to create excess fat, especially in the abdominal area.

Pomegranates

Low in calories, this fruit gets high marks for taste and nutritional content, thanks to a healthy dose of folate, fiber and disease-deterring antioxidants.

Chiles

Eating spicy numbers will spike your metabolism, courtesy of a compound in chiles called capsaicin, which helps the body burn extra calories for 20 minutes after you eat them. It can be painful though when you inhale a plate of chiles, you have to eat it slower, allowing your brain adequate time to register that it is full and prevent overeating.

Quinoa

It is pronounced as (KEEN-wah), eating quinoa offers a simple way to ward off the munchies. The grain is teeming with fiber (2.6 grams per 1/2 cup) and protein to keep you humming and hunger-free for hours.

Parmesan

Those who are in a Diet who ate low fat varieties of dairy did not experience the same benefit. Whole dairy may contain more conjugated linoleic acid, which could assist in the fat-burning department. And since Parmesan is so flavorful, you only need a few sprinkles to gain maximum flavor without compromising its pound-shedding power.

    Nice post… I quite liked it…. Its a hard fact that people usually ignore what is available at hand and tend to research over net to find out weird weight loss supplements that do nothing but pile their bodies with various side-effects. A strict diet regimen followed with a proper exercise regimen actually works wonders…but then does anyone bother?
