Weight loss is a popular topic. It is something that millions of people are trying to achieve, with varying degrees of success. There is no lack of diet pills and weight loss programs out on the market. The fact is, what you eat plays a critical role in your weight loss results. The best way to lose weight is by eating a healthy diet and getting plenty of exercise. However, there are are certain foods that are not only full of nutrients, but they offer additional benefits in helping you eat less or in burning off more calories. Here are some examples of superfoods for weight loss.
Change your regular beverage to green tea. Researchers have found that the helpful phytochemicals called catechins in green tea may help stimulate your body to burn more calories and reduce body fat. Try a cup of green tea in the morning instead of coffee, or have a tall glass of green tea on ice after a good workout.
Serve a low-calorie broth or a tomato-based soup before a meal. This can satisfy your hunger so that you will eat a smaller portion of your meal. Avoid cream-based soups because those are high in calories.
Most leafy green vegetables are great superfoods for weight loss. A green salad without the high-calorie dressings and toppings can satisfy your hunger without adding a lot of calories. Your body will also expend additional calories in digesting the fibers from the vegetables, giving you double benefits.
Oats are high in fiber. Eating one serving can satisfy your hunger for hours. It is also a source of resistance starch that can actually boost your metabolism and help you burn off more calories. Brown rice is also another good source of resistance starch that is low in calories but high in bulk.
Avocados are a good source of monounsaturated fats. This is a good fat that your body needs. Eating half of an avocado can help in curbing those cravings for snacks because your appetite will stay satisfied for a long time.
A cup of blueberries has only about 80 calories, and the berries are rich in anti-oxidants. The amount of fiber that blueberries provide will keep those hunger pangs away for hours.
A serving of broccoli also gives you plenty of fiber to keep you feeling full. One serving only has about 30 calories, and these calories are packed full of nutrients.
For a super low-fat source of protein, try some black beans. A cup of black beans provides about 15 grams of protein and no saturated fat.
Grapefruit has a property that can lower insulin. Insulin is a hormone that tells your body to store fat. A reduced level of insulin can help your body store less fat. A study showed that people who ate a grapefruit during each meal for twelve weeks lost an average of over three pounds.
These are just some examples of superfoods for weight loss. Incorporating these into your diet is a delicious way to lose weight without sacrificing good taste.

Anyone Have Some Good Tips For A College Student Who Wants To Lose About 35 Pounds? Basically Im pretty lethargic due to the studying….I do a fair bit of walking and I dont eat fast food more than a coupla times a month, but I seem to keep gaining weight. Basically I need some health tips or some way of beginning to get rid of the buddha belly.
As a fellow student, I understand your struggle. My butt feels constantly glued to a seat and I don’t have the time or attention for planning healthy meals. It’s tough but I manage to control my weight and even lose weight every now and then with some pretty easy tactics. Since you want to lose it, you’ll have to get serious. I would highly recommend cardio workouts. Depending on your fitness level and personal tastes you could try at home workouts like Tae Bo or you can hit the gym (in which case walking or jogging on the tredmill mixed with weights would be effective). Basically, make yourself workout even when you feel tired from studying or a long day. Next thing you know, you’ll look forward to the stress relief. Remember to watch what you eat and consider counting calories…you may be surprised how much you eat daily! Get sleep. Lack of sleep stresses the bod out and you may compensate with food. And you definitely will have less energy for workouts. GOOD LUCK!
