Top Ten Foods to Speed up Your Weight loss

super nutrient 4Losing weight is not an easy task. Every year, thousands of rupees are spent on numerous diet programs, slim-down products, and weight loss pills. Many people who want to lose weight find it difficult to know which foods to choose for the best weight loss results.

Shown below are some of the “good food” that should be part of a weight watchers eating plan

  1. Salad – Eating salad is highly recommended by the American Dietetic Association because the vegetable-based meal is rich in vitamins C and E, folic acid and carotenoids. Make salads with tomato, carrot, beetroot, cabbage, capsicum, lettuce, or cucumber all low in calories-your diet staple, to liven them up, you can use curd or lemon as a salad dressing. Sandwiches too, are goods way to have these raw vegetables.
  2. Egg — Eaten in moderate amounts, eggs are good for the health since these contain protein that helps prevent spikes in blood sugar. Weight watchers are often advised to eat only egg whites.
  3. Green Tea – This type of tea is an antioxidant and helps stimulate metabolism, which, in turn, burns fat.
  4. Potatoes: Surprised? The problem is not the potatoes, but the way they are cooked. Finger chips or other forms of fried potatoes are high in fat. But if baked or boiled and eaten without fatty accompaniments, potatoes are great for your diet. Have them mashed with a pinch of pepper and a dash of lime. Potatoes contain only 97 calories.
    Sweet potatoes when boiled have a naturally rich taste and creamy texture. They have 120 calories more than potatoes – but they’re delicious even without accompaniments.
  5. High fiber cereals: some cereal-based foods, too, fill you up on relatively few calories. They include chapattis, roasted corn on the cob, dhokla or idlis, and white rice upmas. Other breakfast choices could be oats, poha, or rice wheat-or- corn flakes low in sugar.
  6. Air popped popcorn: That’s popcorn made without butter, oil or salt. Pop it your self in a container with a lid, either over a stove or in a microwave oven. If quantity affects the quality of your eating experience consider that four cups of air-popcorn have only 100 calories and one gram of fat. Compare that to potato wafers-four cups have about 600 calories and 40 grams of fat.
  7. Tofu – If you eat tofu, you tend to eat less food. Tofu is considered as an appetite-quashing protein.
  8. Water: Research shows that snacking in particular is often the result of mistaking thirst for hunger; Water has no calories, so it’s great for filling up. Those who find it a plain bore can quaff low-calorie drinks that contain mostly water such as buttermilk, coconut water, and watermelon juice. Clear vegetable or dal soups are nutritious and don’t have many calories, avoid cream soups.
  9. Curds: If made from skimmed cow’s milk, curds contain only 56 calories and are a good source of protein, calcium and vitamins, Plain curds with a little fruit is delicious as a dessert.
  10. Chocolate bar: An occasional 20-gram chocolate bar-about the size of a small 5 star-is a good choice for sweet-tooth cravings, because it’s individually pack aged and thus less risky than cake, ice cream, or puddings.

It must also be mentioned that eating the above fat burners will help lose weight but you need to add some mild daily exercise. This can be in the form of walking or running, but it must be daily and for periods of no less than 20 to 30 minutes. The pulse-rate must climb to near 100 beats per minute, and a light sweat should appear to indicate you are helping your metabolism turn on.
