Losing weight is not an exact science, but a lot of nutritionists and fitness experts have come close. With all that said, there are a lot of foods out there that can you help you lose weight more than others. Since I have been doing this kind of stuff for a living (in the maintenance stage now regarding my weight, but these tips still work for me), I wanted to give you my top ones to consider.
Meat (without hormones) – This is a staple in diets such as Atkins, but the fact is lean meats that are not boosted with hormones can really help you lose weight quickly. These contain very little to no carbohydrates, are low in calories and fat as well (as long as you trim off any fat that might be on raw meat after cooking). The best part is, most people already eat this. Just ditch the other unhealthy stuff you might pile onto it (I’m looking at you breading) and you will have a tasty, lean main course.
Grapefruit – Often overlooked because of other fruits, the grapefruit has recently been associated with weight loss. In fact, their is a diet called the Grapefruit diet. A whole grapefruit only is about 80 calories, and most people only eat a half at a time. The best part is the food is also known to help prevent cancer.
Pumpkin – I wanted to keep this list simple, giving you a meat, fruit and vegetable. Pumpkin doesn’t get a whole lot of love outside of Thanksgiving, but it is full of fiber and is also very filling. The one drawback is by itself it may not taste that great, but adding some slight flavoring is fine.
As with all diets and trying to lose weight, the important thing is to moderate what you eat. Incorporating these foods I have listed will have you well on your way.
