Foods that promote weight loss: peanut butter, green tea, almonds and beans
There are certain foods that promote weight loss when eaten. The most important factor in losing weight is your diet, above exercise and above supplements. In this article I will describe healthy foods for weight loss.
The reason these foods work is because your body burns calories digesting the food. Certain foods require more calories to be burned to be digested. These foods are not the whole puzzle. They should be combined into your current diet and/or exercise program for maximum results.
Green Tea – Most people drink a cup of coffee or tea in the morning. Whatever you are doing, replace it with green tea. There are chemicals in green tea that burn fat. Going into the scope of how and why these chemicals burn fat is beyond this article. In addition to fat burning properties, it also offers powerful antioxidants and other health benefits.
Peanut Butter: ALL NATURAL peanut butter. We’re not talking about Jiffy here. Buy the all-natural peanut butter where the oil is on top. A great snack combination is celery and peanut butter. Not only will it help burn fat, but the fiber will suppress your appetite.
Almonds: Almonds contain good fats. Almonds are one of the energy foods of the abdominal diet. It is rich in fatty acids (good thing) and protein. Aim for a handful of almonds per day. I like to mash them into my oatmeal.
Beans: Beans are high in fiber and help keep you full. The good list of beans are kidney beans, navy beans, navy beans, and Lima beans. I have found that beans are very helpful in suppressing the appetite.
Be sure to add them to a diet plan that you will actually stick to. The best diet is one that can really be maintained in the long term. If you can’t afford a nutritionist or diet program to perfectly plan your meal plans, then it could come down to a great deal of trial and error.
