One of your biggest goals when losing weight is to fight off hunger and control your dietary intake.
Foods containing fibers, proteins and plant-based fats are essential and tend to be quite satiating. This is because these nutrients take longer to absorb, keeping you full for longer periods of time. They also ensure that there are no blood sugar or insulin spikes.
Following are some foods that might help you lose weight. The thing to remember is that there’s no magic. These foods are rich in nutrients and help burn calories faster.
Whole eggs were previously thought to increase cholesterol levels. However, research has shown that an intake of whole eggs does not increase blood cholesterol levels.
Moreover, eggs are rich in proteins and healthy fats and therefore, can have a satiating effect with a very little amount of calories. A research published in the US National Library of Medicine showed that eating eggs for breakfast, instead of bagels, can enhance satiety, prompting overweight women to eat less for the next 36 hours.
Savoring the sweet and juicy delights of these fruits can also help in weight loss. Apples and pears contain appetite suppressing fibers and antioxidants.
According to Health Magazine, these fruits can also be great for our gut bacteria because of their richness in dietary fiber. They can help improve satiety and decrease inflammation.
Almonds can be perfect for a snack for munchers. Using almonds as snacks can help you keep satiated throughout the day. This also helps you eat less at meals.
What’s more, almonds are rich in Vitamin E, which can be great for your hair, skin and nails.
Lentils have been our companion for thousands of years. According to the Health Magazine, legumes such as lentils, black beans and chickpeas helped study participants feel 31% fuller when compared with other control meals, like bread or pasta.
A great source of vitamin C and folate, cauliflower also contains cancer fighting nutrients. The vegetable is rich in potassium and antioxidants, which make it an amazing choice if you are looking to lose weight.
According to The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the catechins and caffeine contained in tea can help in oxidizing fats faster. Moreover, the study also found that the green tea extract can play a role in controlling the overall body composition.
