12 Best foods for weight loss
    2017-July-28  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THESE 12 foods will start narrowing your waist the minute they leave your fork and enter your mouth! Make sure these are added to your shopping list on your next trip.

Grapefruit

Vitamin C helps with the proper metabolism of fat, foods rich in it make great choices for burning fat. Eating half a grapefruit for breakfast or about 30 minutes before eating meals will help you feel more full and prevent overeating.

Black pepper

Piperine, the important substance in black pepper, has shown signs of reducing the formation of fat cells in your body. Black pepper also helps to increase your metabolism. This is great news for those sick of eating bland food and looking for an easy way to shed some pounds!

Cinnamon

Cinnamon is known to lower blood sugar levels; this can help in suppressing monster appetites. Adding cinnamon to teas, coffee, and yogurt (plain!) are some easy ways to get it in your system.

Note: Try your best to purchase Ceylon cinnamon; the ingredient Coumarin, found in high amounts in cassia cinnamon, is known to have harmful effects on the liver.

Eggs

The beauty of eggs is that they are low in calories and contain 7 grams of protein, as well as other beneficial nutrients. Studies have shown that eating eggs for breakfast will significantly lower the amount of calories you may want to consume later in the day. Although the yolk is high in cholesterol, it does hold its benefits — consuming in moderation is advised.

Fruits

Fruits are your friends when it comes to losing weight; they offer countless benefits and still satisfy your tastes buds. The beauty of fruit is that it’ll satisfy your sweet tooth and does not harm the body the same way processed sugars do. Sugar is the reason people accumulate fat. When eaten with skin, many fruits hold a good amount of fiber and water and help you feel full.

Green tea

The importance of green tea in battling body fat could not be stressed enough; the phytochemical catechins, found in green tea, is known to speed metabolisms. It is better to consume green tea hot because it will help you lengthen the experience and increase the benefits. Adding honey and lemon to your green tea will not only add to the health factor, but make the tea incredibly delicious.

Blueberries

If you have been getting your blueberry intake through muffins and pancakes, then you’ve been doing blueberries wrong. Not just are blueberries high in insoluble fiber, antioxidants, and tasty goodness, but a half cup is only worth 40 calories. For something different, try blueberries on salads or in smoothies.

Almonds

Although nuts in general will aid in body fat loss, almonds are the best for your wallet. They are packed with protein, fiber and heart healthy fats. One serving of almonds (about 23) will help you stay full. The best thing about almonds is they’re portable. A serving is easy to carry with you wherever you go.

Chilies

You’ll be looking hot after eating some hot peppers. They contain the ingredient capsaicin, which is known to suppress appetite. Cayenne peppers, habaneros and jalapenos are some mainstream choices.

Coffee

Studies show that coffee (mainly caffeine) speeds up the metabolism. However, this is the case when it is taken without fattening add-ins like sugar and cream. Also be aware that too much caffeine can have very harmful effects on the body; so keep your intake to one to three cups a day.

Quinoa

One of the biggest misconceptions about carbs is that they cause you to gain weight. It’s actually not the carbs that make you gain weight but the type of carbs that do. Quinoa is high in fiber and protein which will make you feel full. Unlike other grains, it is low on the glycemic index. This means that it doesn’t raise your blood sugar which in turn keeps you from craving sugar and carbs.

Vegetables

If you thought you are going to shed fat without vegetables, you’re wrong. Vegetables are packed with amazing nutrition and fiber to keep you full. It is suggested that you eat at least two to three cups of vegetables every day. For those who turn away from eating vegetables, perhaps you will find its benefits by blending them into a smoothie.(SD-Agencies)
