Thank you for taking the time to read my guest post. I am not here to write about a fad diet that cannot be trusted, but instead focusing on some commonly available foods that will help you to lose excess weight. So here they are!
Tomatoes: This wonderful food helps you to shed the extra pounds and also to prevent weight gain. Although the tomatoes have a low calorie count, they still satisfy your hunger even when you consume just a few of them.
Oranges: Even though the orange has a high sugar content I have still included it as this lovely fruit not only tastes great but also has plenty of fibre which can really contribute towards your weight-loss goals.
Oats: Oats are an excellent option as they also contain plenty of fibre. Fibre improves the metabolism of your body and also keeps you fuller for longer, even with just a small quantity of the oats. It’s great to include in a breakfast!
Chicken Breast: Will provide your body with a good amount of protein. Make this a part of your lunch and you will not need to snack as much in-between meals. This will again help with weight loss.
Cayenne pepper: When you are making a weight loss plan, you should not ignore cayenne pepper! The pepper is inclusive of a compound, Capsaicin, which enhances your metabolism and aids in expending many calories.
Green leafy vegetables: The list of weight loss super foods would be incomplete, if I did not include green leafy vegetables. They come packed with fibre, which prevents you from feeling hungry (and keeps you regular!).
Coconut oil: Just consume about 1 tablespoon of coconut oil on a daily basis and you will enhance your body’s metabolism by about 5%. The oil is helpful to minimize your cravings for food, too.
Apples: If you say no to your unhealthy snacks such as crisps and chocolate, and substitute it for an apple instead, you will certainly be making a much healthier lifestyle decision. Plus it’s one of your five-a-day!
Lentils: Lentils can help prevent blood glucose fluctuations that can lead to fatigue and tiredness. Lentils are also a good source of protein and are useful for bulking up your dishes.
Nuts: There are so many different types of nuts to choose from as an alternative snack i.e. walnuts, almonds, pistachios. Try to avoid those with added salt though.
I hope that you found this list useful and can apply at least some of these suggestions to your healthier lifestyle choices.
