This is the second part to the first article about healthy foods that will help you lose weight. Everybody wants to lose weight for this coming summer season and no one wants to have flab covering their abs when putting on that swim suit. Exercise is a really important part of losing weight of course, but so is eating right. Here are a few more foods that are great to eat if your goal is to lose weight quickly.
The first food that will help you lose weight quickly are eggs. Eggs may not sound like they are all that healthy, however that is untrue, and moreover they actually can help you lose weight. First of all, eggs don’t affect your cholesterol levels in a negative way. Eggs are also very high in protein and low in bad fats, not to mention that they will make you feel full quickly without taking up very much of your daily calorie needs. There have been several studies done which show how eating an egg for breakfast instead of bagels or toast leaves people more satisfied for a longer period of time and also assists in weight loss.
Fish in general is good for weight loss, but salmon is great for it. Salmon is full of protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and many other nutrients. Salmon also contains a lot of iodine which is important for stimulating the thyroid gland, and increased thyroid function leads to a better metabolism. This is a great option when it comes to losing weight.
Potatoes are fantastic because they provide a good amount of calories in the form of carbs without actually causing you to gain weight, and moreover they are fantastic for filling your stomach. Eating boiled potatoes means that you will feel full and eat less of other foods. Potatoes are also very high in potassium, a nutrient that is vital to the healthy function of the human body. Not to mention that potatoes are also very high in fiber.
Beans and legumes
These things are great for weight loss for 2 specific reasons. Beans and legumes like lentils black beans, and kidney beans are all very high in both protein and fiber. Protein is needed to provide your body with energy, especially if you are trying to cut back on fatty foods as well as carbs. Also, fiber is shown to aid in healthy digestion. Together, fiber and protein are also some of the best substances for feeling satisfied.
Soups are also another fantastic meal that you can eat if you are looking to lose some weight. This is mainly because soups are low density foods, meaning that they contain a lot of water. Water is of course great for weight loss because it flushes out your system of unwanted chemicals and it fills your stomach without all of those unwanted calories. Try eating soups that contain a lot of vegetables and legumes.
