How To Eat Big And Lose Weight
In this article I am going to walk you through a selection of foods described in the weight loss industry as super, or power, foods. These foods will allow you to lose weight without being constantly hungry and following a diet that will never work.
The main complaint people on diet programs have is that they simply cannot handle the fact they are consistently hungry. Because of that weight loss experts from around the world concentrated on finding certain foods that would allow people to eat and still lose weight.
Now despite their power when it comes to weight loss they do need to be accompanied with an exercise program of some kind to see results. If you do exercise though, even just a bike ride three times a week, and concentrate your diet on these foods you'll get great results.
These foods boost your metabolic rate and therefore burn more calories throughout the day. This will result in you shedding the pounds! Let's take a look at them.
Green tea is the first powerfood. It contains fat burning chemicals that will help you with your weight loss. Whilst it doesn't taste bad, it doesn't taste great either. But this powerfood is a secret powerhouse in the weight loss world.
Peanut butter is a surprising aid in weight loss. Most people think because it tastes so great that it's bad for you. It can be eaten at any point throughout the day and it will help your diet because it is rich in protein. Protein helps build lean muscle mass, which will burn fat and calories. Peanut butter is also a filling food which will suppress your appetite.
Another powerfood from the nut family is almonds. Almonds, whilst being a fat, are actually a good type of fat because they contain essential nutrients such as fatty acids and protein. They help you burn fat by boosting your metabolic rate.
Beans such as greenbeans and blackbeans will help fill you up and suppress your appetite. One of the main pitfalls with low calorie diets is you are constantly hungry. By eating foods such as beans and peanut butter you will find yourself full throughout the day.
Lean chicken and turkey meat is one of the best weight loss foods you can ever have because it contains a lot of amount of protein and very little fat, and as you know, protein will build lean muscles. Lean muscles will help you burn fat by accelerating your metabolic rate!
Fishe is also very good for quick weight loss. Fish such as salmon and tuna contain Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids fall in the category of 'good fats' or unsaturated fats. You gained weight because of a hormone called leptin which stores fat inside your body. Omega-3 fatty acids will cut down on leptin; when that happens, you are bound to lose weight! Make sure you get tuna packed in spring water, rather than oil, for the healthiest option.
Berries such as blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, etc will help you with weight loss by suppressing your appetite. Why not combine them with peanut butter and milk and blend them over ice to make a tasty smoothie that will help you to lose weight!
These are just a handful of the types of super foods that will aid your weight loss.
It should be clear to you now that losing weight does not mean you have to starve yourself and eat nothing but boring vegetables and salads. In fact, eating solely that will not help you lose weight. You need proteins and the right kinds of fats as well as vitamins and antioxidants to turbo charge your diet program.
Couple these foods with a basic exercise program and eating small meals every three hours, rather than three large meals, during the day and watch the pounds drop off.
