What do you think of when someone mentions the phrase "Weight loss foods?"
Do you think of foods that come in boxes pushed in commercials or maybe foods that taste like
I hope not because foods that really help you lose weight don't taste like cardboard, nor do they
come packaged in cardboard.
foods are loaded with nutrition, low in calories and taste awesome!
I have a couple guidelines when it comes to choosing good weight loss foods, but the biggest is
taste. If they dont taste good, I wont eat emand neither will you. Why would anyone eat a food that didnt taste
good, even if it did help you lose a few extra pounds?
I sure as hell wouldnt and I can't imagine you would either.
Here are a few of my favorite foods to
help you lose weight.
I'm not talking about the mushy stuff Pop-Eye eats. I'm talking about the deep
green leafy stuff you can use for salads, or as toppings in healthy wraps or even throw in a smoothie (you cant
I'm a big routine guy and try to have a big, nutrient-dense salad every day for lunch and the main
ingredient is spinach.
It tastes great, is loaded with the all-important fiber, which is a must for any weight loss
It's very filling, especially when you put it into context with its total calories as a serving is
wicked low in total calories.
It's also loaded with vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients.
You do need to be careful with cleanliness, though as spinach is one of the most tainted foods
available and this is mostly due to runoff from nearby livestock growers.
2) Bell Peppers
I never used to be much of a pepper eater because I stupidly assumed all
peppers were hot, when that couldn't be further from the truth.
Once I got over my silliness and started eating bell peppers, I fell in love
with the colorful food.
They make the list for weight loss foods because,
just like spinach, they're low in total calories yet rich in nutrition.
You should try to get a variety of colors and dont just stick with one. The reason for this is that
the reason they come in different colors is because theyre rich in different nutrients specific nutrients give
them the red, yellow or green coloration.
You can slice them up and add them to salads, burgers or sandwiches. You can stuff 'em with a
mixture of quinoa, and other spices and vegetables or slice 'em up and dip them in a healthy dip like hummus and
enjoy as a snackand still lose weight.
I love, love, love apples. Theyre one of my favorite foods whether you're
tyring to lose weight or just be healthy.
They're a good source of fiber one apple has 4-5 grams of fiber.
They're high in water, which when combined with the fiber makes them a filling snack.
They're low in calories and high in vitamins.
They are one of natures perfect foods. Eat em as often as you can!
The great thing about these 3 foods is that they're easy enough for the whole family to enjoy.
I've always insisted that if you can eat healthy as a family, long-lasting weight loss is easy. Get
your significant other and kids to eat like you, and watch the health of your family soar!
