Foods to Increase Weight Loss

Ready to lose a few pounds by eating foods that increase weight loss!? There are five foods that can help. And the best part is that you won’t feel like you’re “eating light” with this group of weight-loss-boosting noshes. In fact, it’ll still feel like the holidays! These foods are also recommended and are perfect for the detox diet. Salmon: Seems the omega-3 fatty acids in this fish may turbo charge your body’s fat-burning engines – especially when coupled with exercise, one study found. Salmon is low in calories and saturated fat, and has long been known for it numerous health benefits. Salmon does the body well because it is an excellent source of protein, nutrients and essential to a healthy diet and weight loss plan. Omega-3, one of the most well-known benefits that salmon has, which is a unique type of health promoting fat that provides enormous benefits to our health. Salmon also has other important benefits such as; proteins and amino acids. Proteins or amino acids are essential components of our cells, tissues, enzymes, hormones and every other body part. The proteins from salmon (and most other fishes) are easy digestible and easily absorbed into the body. They do neither have any adverse side effects nor contain carcinogenic compounds, like other meats do. Salmon is also source of good fat (omega-3 fatty acids) which also plays a vital role in keeping you healthy. Salmon is also rich in some of the very essential minerals  like iron, calcium, selenium and phosphorus and vitamins like A, B and D. Selenium, which is very necessary for building up of tissues, hair, nails etc., is best obtained from animal proteins and among which, salmon is one of the best. Try this great low calorie healthy Salmon with black bean recipe get recipe. Eggs: They’re back on the healthy-foods list. In one study, dieters who ate eggs for breakfast were able to stave off hunger longer than the folks who loaded up on carbs at breakfast. Peanuts: May seem counterintuitive — after all, they are high in fat and calories — but a small daily serving of peanuts may discourage weight gain, research suggests. Possibly because the healthy fats in peanuts are easier to burn off than the unhealthy fats from other fatty treats, like cheesecake and chips. Just make sure you substitute the nuts for another high-calorie food. Apples: Munch on an apple before every meal and you’ll be less likely to clean your dinner plate, research shows. Apples are fiber-filled yet low in calories, which means you fill up on less. Fava beans: Why fava beans? Because these creamy beans are loaded with flavonoids and a 14-year study in women showed that high flavonoid intake may help ward off belly fat. Fava beans are a healthy choice. Fava beans are especially high in fiber (85% of the RDV), and also high in iron (30% of a day’s requirement), and very low in sodium. Additionally, they contain no cholesterol and are low in fat. Fava beans are also noted to contain L-dopa, which is used as a drug for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease. Additionally, as with most whole grains, consumption of favabeans can help reduce risks associated with heart disease.

High Fiber for Weight Loss

High Fiber for Weight Loss

Fiber increases weight loss because… Research has shown that people who consume an additional 14 grams of fiber daily cut their calories intake by 10 percent. Fiber increases the sensation of fullness and influences the hormones that regulate food intake.  Fiber is an essential part of our daily diet, because it helps our bodies feel full while eliminating fat deposits from our body. Whole gains and whole wheat are high in fiber so including whole wheat and gains in your daily diet is a great way to get your daily fiber intake. Today most American diets are rich in processed foods. Processed foods have no real nutritional value (no poly fats, no protein, no vitamins or minerals or antioxidants) it is truly like ingesting sugar. Most of us now get the majority of our food from cardboard boxes and plastic containers. Which means we are getting way too much highly processed foods, stuff stripped of the natural ingredients that keep us lean and healthy, and pumped full of unnatural ingredients that make us fat and tired. A diet that is rich in processed foods leads to weight gain. Fiber actually acts as a binding agent, it blinds to fatty deposits flushing them out of your system increasing weight loss. And it promotes a quicker movement of food through the digestive tract. Because fiber actually passes through our intestines, it actually carries fat and calories out, preventing the body from breaking down and absorbing some of the fat and cholesterol we ingest. High Fiber enriched foods to choose from: Fruits Apples, (1 med = 4.0 grams of fiber) Regardless of the type, are low in calories and high in fiber. They expand your stomach, so you’ll feel full longer, and require less food to satisfy your hunger. Blackberries (1/2 cup = 4.4 grams of fiber) Are high in fiber and relatively low in sugar. Dissolved in water, blackberries form pectin, which helps to stabilize blood-sugar levels. Raspberries (1 cup = 3 grams of fiber) Are low in calories and high in fiber . Immediately before serving, take chilled raspberries and rinse with cool water. Make a raspberry puree to pour over fruit salad or waffles. Vegetables Artichokes (1 larger = 4.5 grams of fiber) are high in  fiber and low in fat. They require little preparation, but are time-consuming to eat – which means you’ll eat less! To prepare artichokes, wash, pull off the outer and lower petals, and trim off the pointed tips of the outer leaves. Boil them standing upright for about 30 minutes, until center petal pulls out easily. Serve hot, cold, or at room temperature. Cabbage (cooked cabbage = 3.0 grams of fiber) contains vitamins and fiber, with the fewest calories and least fat of any vegetable. Corn (1/2 cup = 5.0 grams of fiber) is a high-fiber, hearty, appetite-curbing vegetable. Sprinkle with herbs or fresh-squeezed lemon juice instead of butter, or rub with a wedge of lime and a sprinkle of chili pepper.   CHICK HERE to view the high fiber food chart and add more fiber to your daily diet. It is recommended that we include 25 to 35% fiber in our daily diet, so make sure you have the fiber you need to lose weight or maintain a healthy slimming diet. Here is a...

Can the Healthy Fork Help you Lose Weight?

The fork includes sensors which monitor the amount of food on the fork, how many forkfuls of food you’re eating per minute, and how long you’re pausing between shoveling bites of food into your mouth. If you’re including too much food on the fork or eating more than once every 10 seconds, it alerts you with a signal that you need to slow it down. You can also download the data from the fork so you, or your doctor, can monitor your eating...
