Losing weight doesn’t always mean starving yourself to death. It can be way more enjoyable than that. Did you know that you can eat certain types of food and still lose weight? Yes, you definitely can, if you eat a lot of fruits and veggies that contain water! Fruits and veggies are not only rich in vitamins and antioxidants, but new research shows that they can help you stay slimmer. Here’s a list of the super-power veggies and fruits that help you lose weight:
You may haveavoided them because avocados are rich in fat, but there is a difference between good and bad fat. Oleic acid, a compound in avocados’ healthy monounsaturated fats (MUFAs), may trigger your body to actually quiet hunger. Stick to a quarter or a half of an avocado and watch that belly fat melt away. They arealso packed with fiber and protein.
Cooked or raw, this cruciferous veggie is well-known for its cancer-preventing powers, but with a punch of filling fiber in less than 30 calories a serving, it’s bound to prevent weight problems too.
One study found that women who ate three pears a day consumed fewer calories and lost more weight than those who didn’t. If you are like me, and you are not a fan of pears, do this: cut pears in half, put honey and cinnamon (which speeds up metabolism too) on top and throw them into the oven.
Not only will one apple a day keep the doctor away but it will also blunt appetite because of fiber.
Even if you don’t eat a lot of fruits and vegetables, eating half a grapefruit a day will make you lose one pound a week. A compound in this fruit will lower insulin, a fat-storage hormone, which is going to help your body burn more calories.
Similarly to grapefruit, it has a compound that helps your body burn fat quicker.
Eating beans, including kidney beans, more often may help reduce your risk of heart disease, cancer,and diabetes, according to North Dakota State University Extension, and may also help you lose weight. This may be due to the fiber and protein they contain.
A medium-sized sweet potato (about the size of your fist) fulfills your daily requirement for vitamin A and provides 4 grams of fiber. It makes you feel full for a long time, even though one medium sweet potato has only 150 calories compared to 300 for a white one.
Because of a hefty dose of fiber, they rank highest among fruits on a list of 38 filling foods put together by Australian researchers. Feeling full can help you eat less throughout the day.
They contain a substance called capsaicin, which has been shown to help reduce appetite and increase fat burning in some studies. One study showed that eating 1 gram of red chilli pepper reduced appetite and increased fat burning in people who didn’t regularly eat peppers. However, there was no effect in people who were regularly eating spicy food. The study indicated that it happened because a body can become tolerant to it.
