I’m really trying to get back down to the pre-baby size I was over a year ago. Part of my goal is to replace some foods I consistently eat (rice, fruit) with the healthiest types of these foods I can find. For example, switching to whole grain brown rice and eating more berries is the newest discovery I found during the research for this post! The following 10 foods are helpful when you are trying to lose weight. Incorporate them into your diet and see what happens! Additionally, if you’re reading this post and just cannot seem to kick that junk food craving, read my other post about 8 Junk Foods that are Actually Good For You!
If you are trying to lose weight, almonds are the perfect snack. Almonds are full of protein, which helps stabilize blood sugar and prevents sugar cravings.
If you’re looking for a breakfast full of fiber, oatmeal is the best choice. Try to eat it plain or topped with fruit and honey.
When it comes to eggs, boiled is best. The protein and vitamins in eggs make them a perfect food for weight loss. There is natural cholesterol, but doctors are saying that this may not be as unhealthy for you as once suspected.
These tiny fruits are packed full of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Their nutrition content is excellent and they make the perfect, very convenient, snack.
Spicy foods like hot peppers, boost the metabolism and encourages your body to burn calories faster. Use peppers while cooking to help incorporate their amazing benefits.
Low in bad cholesterol and high in protein, salmon is an excellent dinner choice. Bake in the oven or on the grill for the healthiest version of fish.
Although water is not a food, it is a consumed beverage that everyone should consume more of. Water is essential to your body’s overall health and actually might make you feel fuller to prevent unnecessary snacking throughout the day. When you feel hungry, drink a glass of water, instead, and see if your hunger subsides.
As the healthiest version of rice, brown rice is packed with whole grains and vitamins. Substitute brown rice for white to add extra nutrients in your diet. It will make you feel fuller and offer your body better nutrition.
Green tea has several fat-burning components. Drink unsweetened green tea to revitalize your body and help loose those stubborn fat cells.
Peanuts contain healthy fats that help your body feel full. Eating a spoon full of peanut butter may help to keep hunger cravings away. Plus, peanut butter is high in vitamins and minerals.
