Wouldn’t weight loss be much easier if we knew what the best weight losing foods were? Now it might hurt you to read this, but there is no ‘magic’ food which will cause the fat to melt off your body. I know that’s annoying, I wish there was one as much as you do, but there isn’t and that’s the truth, plain and simple. So how do I intend to help you by writing this article?
While there is no ‘miracle’ food out there, it is certainly possible to lose weight with food. The foods I want to make you aware of can help you lose a tremendous amount of weight by increasing the rate at which you burn calories, and by making you feel less hungry throughout the day. What’s more, this is seriously tasty stuff! Weight loss doesn’t have to be a chore, let’s enjoy ourselves!
It doesn’t matter if you cook them or eat them raw, oats seem to always have a wonderful creamy texture, are always high in fiber, and they’re sugars are released slowly into the bloodstream. This makes oats the ideal breakfast food, setting the stage for your metabolism for the rest of the day in the best way possible. Odd as it may seem, conventional wisdom is actually correct sometimes!
Protein is essential to all weight losing diets. It has a higher thermic effect than any other type of food, meaning that your digestive system requires more energy to digest it. In other words, your body burns calories at a higher rate when it’s digesting protein, almost like weight loss on autopilot! Eggs are the ideal breakfast protein because they are very filling, meaning that it will be much easier for you to eat less throughout the day.
Another very powerful weight loss food, lentils pack a large amount of soluble fiber as well as being high in protein. This means that by virtue of eating lentils at any meal time, especially towards the beginning of the meal, your blood sugar rise following the meal will be a much more stable, steady one. Fast blood sugar rises following meals are one of the primary causes of weight gain, and you’ll definitely need to avoid them at all times if you’re to be successful in weight loss.
I know you’re going to grab yourself ample supply of these foods the next time you go grocery shopping, but there’s a lot more I need to show you!
