Have you heard about the miracle superfoods that will help you lose weight? “Eat nothing but carrots and lose weight!” Common sense tells us that eating only one food is probably not best for our health, and science has yet to uncover a magical food that will allow us to lose weight simply by eating it. However, there are certain foods that can help you lose weight if you eat them in place of other less healthy foods.
What To Eat To Lose Weight
Fresh vegetables: A plate full of veggies is a dieter’s best friend. Vegetables, the more colorful the better, are loaded with nutrients and fiber and relatively few calories. They are a great way to fill up without packing on pounds.
Lean protein: Eating protein helps you feel full for longer and contributes to building lean muscle mass, which burns more calories than body fat. The key is to choose lean protein sources, such as skinless chicken and turkey breast, legumes, and lean cuts of beef.
Green tea: One of the few things you can consume that may actually boost your metabolism, green tea also helps release stored fat and reduces your risk for certain types of cancer. Green tea is especially useful for weight loss if you drink it instead of soda and other high-calorie beverages.
