With well over three quarters of the USA now obese, it’s fairly important that we do something about the fat epidemic. When it comes to shedding the pounds, not everybody is going to be equally successful. It’s true that some lose weight more easily than others. But don’t let that get into your way. The biggest obstacle in between you and a lean body, is your diet. You can work a small miracle by simply eating the right kind of foods. So forget about busting your back at the gym, day in and day out. Just get yourself on a healthy diet already and watch those pounds come right off you.
Here’s a small list of foods that are really good for losing those pounds.
These will cause your body to start secreting a hormone that is called cholecystokinin. It’s a hard to remember name, but that doesn’t matter. The only thing that matters here is that this hormone will cause a tightening up of the valve in between the stomach and your intestines. This makes you feel fuller more quickly. Once you are saturated, you are unlikely to eat more.
These will help you detoxify your blood. It helps renewing blood as well by ensuring that your blood becomes rich in minerals and organic sugars. Beets do not have a lot of calories in them. You can also eat the leaves, which are rich in all sorts of healthy nutrients such as vitamin A and C, protein and calcium. And also beta carotine. Very underestimated!
In comparison to other nuts, walnuts contain about double the amount of anti oxidant molecules than other nuts. They are much better for you than for example pistachio nuts or almonds. The great thing is that they are also very low in cholesterol. You do need to eat these in moderation, as they contain loads of calories. You could, for example, mix a few of these into your salad. They will certainly help you feel more saturated, as they are rich in fatty acids.
This is one of the most underrated foods of all time. Spinach is rich in an incredible amount of healthy nutrients. Spinach contains anti oxidants, minerals, potassium, magnesium, iron, fiber, vitamin A, vitamin K, just to name a few. Spinach can greatly help you curb your cravings, because it saturates you very well. It isn’t a particularly high calorie food, so you can eat as much of it as you want, basically. You would do well to incorporate this into your diet, as it can help you keep a clean digestive tract. This is a great way of preventing constapation.
Nobody would have ever thought that cinnamon would make the list. But it did. And for good reason! Not only can this help you fight diabetes (which I certainly hope you do not have, but if you do… eat cinnamon!). It can also help you in promoting a better blood circulation. All you need is about half a teaspoon of this and you will prevent huge insulin spikes.
