When it comes to weight loss, most people fall short or accomplish their goals using a program that is not sustainable or healthy.
The result of many ‘fast weight loss’ diets is that some or a lot of weight is lost but it’s not lost in a way that is healthy for the body and the pounds almost always pile back on.
If you want healthy weight loss so you can lose weight quickly but also safely, there are a few food groups that you should make much more common in your diet and of course many foods that should seldom pass through your lips.
To keep it simple and positive, let’s focus on only those foods that you should eat. After all, if you are eating more of these you will have less time and cravings to reach for more of ‘those other foods.’
Check these out and try to make them part of your everyday diet.
The average American diet include little to NO nuts. Studies show that your hunger is actually reduced more with eating nuts than something like rice cakes.
Nuts also supply you with important essential fatty acids that bring all kinds of health benefits to you without making you fat.
You need to eat nuts raw. No salt, no chocolate, and no honey roasting. I know, I know…NO FUN!
Bean are low calorie and stuffed with protein and fiber. This helps you tone up and lose weight. My recommendation is to replace as much red meat intake as you can with beans.
A Louisiana State University study found that people who each eggs for breakfast lost more weight than those that opted for a bagel.
Unless you are on a strict restriction to avoid them for cholesterol reasons (which is controversial in itself) then go ahead and incorporate some organic eggs into your diet. You can even settle for just one yolk the rest egg whites as an alternative.
Taking in fish as your primary protein is a great way to keep saturated fat to a minimum while boosting your omega-3 intake which pretty much everyone needs more of in today’s fast paced and stressful society.
Spinach, romaine, broccoli, kale (try it, its not bad) and other super-food veggies like these can pretty much be guaranteed to help your waist-wasting efforts.
However, some other great options are as follows: Lettuce, radishes, green beans, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, leek, endive, spinach, asparagus, cucumber, celery, collard greens, garlic, onions, peppers, squash and string beans.
Avocados are also a good choice and are a great source of fiber; however, excessive intake of avocados may tax the liver and prevent it from allowing the body to once again begin burning fat correctly.
Eating more of the food above and less of the foods you know to be bad for you is a great way to get a jump start onto a healthy weight loss path.
