Starting off my list for the most weight-lossfriendly food, we have… Salmon We bet you didn't see this one coming.
When people talk about food that can helpyou lose weight then salmon may not be the first thing to comes to mind.
We don't blame you after all Salmon is categorizedas an oily fish and contains lots of fats.
This is good enough to make any fitness freakthink twice before eating Salmon, but there is more to salmon than meets the eye.
Salmon is a rich source of iodine, a nutrientthat boosts metabolism and helps maintain proper thyroid function.
Apart from that it also contains Omega-3 FattyAcids that have been proven to reduce inflammation, one of the major causes of obesity.
Oh and it is a rich source of protein as well.
So the next time you come across Salmon, giveit a try, you won't be disappointed.
Moving on from one unexpected entry into thelist, here is a familiar one… Broccoli If the last one had you in a fix, this ispretty easy to guess.
Broccoli contains plenty of nutrients thatare good for the body.
In fact if you can have a bowl of choppedbroccoli in a day, you will be ingesting about 5 grams of fiber.
It is a nutrient that helps in your digestionprocess.
Additionally, Broccoli is a rich source ofVitamin C and Vitamin K.
This vegetable is especially good for peoplewith blood pressure problems as it helps to maintain it.
What's more? Broccoli is very low in calories.
Yes, you heard that right.
One bowl of chopped raw broccoli containsonly about 30 grams of calories, which can be easily burned by a few laps around thehouse.
No wonder, nutritionists always recommendbroccoli to me.
I better pick up a few while I am here.
Let's move to the third food on my list, itis also a bit unusual one.
Whole Eggs If you thought the salmon was a strange entryto this list then looks like it has a contender, whole eggs.
A study conducted on 30 women found that womenwho had whole eggs for breakfast didn't feel the urge to eat a lot for the next 36 hours.
As a result, they ended up losing more weightthan women who had bagels for breakfast.
If that was not mind-blowing enough for youthen we have another one.
Another study shows that having whole eggswith a less calorie diet helps in weight reduction.
In other words, if you have eggs during breakfast, you will not feel as hungry and that will help you control your calorie intake for therest of the day.
Interesting, don't you think? Who would have thought that a food with sucha high percentage of fat would help in losing weight? Speaking of which, here is another unlikelyfood Meat When you think of meat, you may not categorizeit as a weight-loss friendly food.
Although there’s no significant evidencepeople have even linked meat with diabetes.
While, processed meat may cause some problemsfor you, fresh meat is actually very helpful when it comes to losing weight.
Meat is rich in protein and can help you burnup to 100 calories a day.
Studies also suggest that if you can increaseyour protein intake every day, it will reduce your cravings for snacks.
So, if you are on a low-carb diet then feelfree to stuff yourself with as much meat as you can consume.
You can also try out the fatty meat withoutthe worry of getting fat.
In case you are on a high-carb then we wouldrecommend that you eat lean meat without all the fats.
And on the chance you’re allergic to redmeat or you don't like it, you can go for the white meat.
Keep in mind though, the levels of proteinvaries so make sure that you are having enough white meat, if you choose that option.
While we’re on the topic of protein, wecan't miss out on our number 5 pick Cottage Cheese Like most dairy products, Cottage Cheese ishigh in protein and calcium.
As we have already discussed, foods with ahigh amount of protein helps burn a lot of calories.
So, in that case most dairy products shouldhave made the list, right? Well they haven’t because apart from beingrich in protein, they are also high in fat and carbohydrates.
So what’s so special about cottage cheese? Well, it’s low in fat and carbohydrates.
So, what you end up having is all the goodstuff.
Now, that sounds like a definite bonus.
There is one problem though, just becauseit is low in fat does not mean that it does not have fat, so we would recommend havingit in moderation.
Hmm, this list is quite a revelation.
Take the next item in the list for an example… #6 Boiled Potatoes Yes ladies and gentlemen, one of the mostweight-loss friendly foods out there is boiled potatoes.
I know what you are thinking, recently manypeople have had the same thought but there have been speculations on whether they arehealthy enough to be consumed.
They are a rich source of fiber and potassiumthough and that means they can not only help you lose weight but also help you regulateyour blood pressure.
As far as I am concerned, you will be killingtwo birds with one stone.
No, we are not really going to kill any birds.
It is just a figure of speech.
Moving along to our next pick number seven… Avocado This is a rather well-known food in the weightreduction club.
While, other fruits would be flexing theircarbs, avocado would be providing you with healthy fats.
This fruit also contains lots of water and, you guessed it, fiber.
You probably know by now that with this nutrient, you can bet on losing weight.
Oh fiber, I love you with every fiber of mybeing.
Ahem, Ahem! Coming back to the point, as we are talkingabout fruits, how can we forget about our number eight pick… Grapes According to a study, which was conductedon 91 individuals over a span of 12-weeks, grapes can help you reduce weight.
These individuals were given fresh grapesbefore meals as well as at the end of the experiment, they were able to lose about 1.
6kilos or 3.
That is staggering, here I have been tryingto lose weight for the past few days and people are doing just by eating grapes.
Grapes also help fight a metabolic abnormalityknown as insulin resistance, which has been related to many chronic diseases.
This brings us to our next point… #9 Beans After discussing other foods that are highin fiber, I felt obligated to mention beans in this list as it is a good source.
I have already told you that fiber helps youreduce weight.
Although, fiber is not the only thing thatbeans have, they are also high in protein.
Now, this is the ultimate food to have forlosing weight.
Protein will burn the calories and fiber willhelp in the digestion process.
Ah, good old fiber and protein.
What would we do without you? Speaking of which, here’s our next food.
#10 Tuna We started with salmon and we are here attuna.
Hmm, that is fishy! Compared to salmon, tuna is more of a predictableentry into this list.
After all, it is famous for being very lowin calories.
Similar to salmon, tuna is also high in Omega-3Fatty Acids and I have already told you how useful that is for shedding a few pounds.
Tuna is the preferred choice of body builders, models and athletes who want to have a high protein diet, but don't want to deal withthe extra calories that come with other options.
Oops! I almost forgot to mention to you all.
Tuna has lots and lots of proteins.
There you go, you have another reason to addTuna in your diet.
With that I am done shopping.
