SIX EASY SUPERFOODS FOR FAT LOSS

One of the easiest ways to help rid yourself of excess weight is to simply include foods in your diet that can improve your results. The six "megafoods" shown below all have well-known benefits for fat loss. They can also be eaten without having to worry about calories and make for guilt-free snacks. While you are dieting, food doesn't hurt you, and can actually help you, if you eat the right things.

 

1. Grapefruit: Grapfruit contains lycopene, which is beneficial for heart health, along with fiber, potassium and vitamin C. Even though grapefruit is sweet, it is low-glycemic and can help regulate the insulin response. Eating grapefruit (or drinking grapefruit juice) with a meal can reduce the number of calories that end up getting stored away as body fat.

 

2. Beans: Navy beans, kidney beans, chickpeas, pinto beans and other types are all excellent sources of fiber which helps you feel full faster. They reduce the jumps in blood-sugar after eating and also lower the absorption of fat in the digestive system. They are also great sources of lean protein.

 

3. Kale: There are only about 30 calories in a cup of this chopped leafy, green vegetable. It has plenty of calcium and fiber and should be used regularly in salds. Kale is a lot more flavorful and nutritious than other types of lettuce that are commonly used in salads, such as iceberg or romaine as well as being higher in fiber.

 

4. Lentils: Rich in fiber and protein, lentils are one of the best foods to reduce insulin and blood sugar spikes after meals. You can reduce the effects of high-glycemic foods by eating them with lentil soup.

 

5. Quinoa: Which is pronounced KEEN-WAH, is a whole grain from South America that is fiber-rich and is a complete protein containing all nine supplemental amino acids that the body requires. It is a good alternative to eating white or even brown rice. It can also be eaten as a hot cereal.

 

6. Green tea: Green tea contains catechins and polyphenols which improve digestion and burn fat quicker by raising your metabolic rate. The antioxidants in green tea also help you get rid of toxins.

 

Eating these six foods alone cannot, of course, guarantee you quick fat loss, but it can certainly improve up your results from following a healthy diet and exercise routine.
