There are some foods that actually benefit weight loss. Of course, they must be eaten in moderation and must complement an exercise program. However, you can boost your fat loss by eating certain foods in particular.
I’ve given a list of foods below that are very popular for helping people lose weight. Choose the foods that you like and eat them in the correct quantities. I’ve not stated the quantities because they vary with each individual. You will need to find out for yourself how much to eat and what the calorie content is. Just use Google to help you.
Also take note that you will want to limit your carb intake even if it is the healthy kind. You do not need to eliminate carbs, but I wouldn’t recommend more than 30 percent of your daily calorie intake come from carbs.
Now let’s look at the foods.
For protein, these are some of the popular sources. The body burns calories to digest protein. Protein helps to repair your muscles and also boosts your metabolism.
Protein sources –
•Salmon (wild Alaskan)
•Whey protein, Casein protein or both(supplement powders)
•Grass Fed Beef
These are some of the best protein sources available. Cook them right and you will have a very healthy meal.
Now we’ll look at the carbs. Carbs have received bad publicity to say the least. There are diets recommending cutting out all carbohydrates from your diet, etc. This is not necessary. A healthy diet does include carbs. It’s the type and quantity that matters. You will want to avoid carbs like white bread, pasta and white rice. All these have a high GI and cause insulin spikes.
Eat the starchy carbs below for best results in your weight loss program.
•Oatmeal (old fashioned)
•100% whole wheat bread
•100% whole wheat pasta
•Yams or sweet potatoes
