We have explored how lemon water can aid in your weight loss journey. Now how about investigating the foods that we eat that could boost your efforts to lose weight? Research shows how these 4 foods can help you lose weight:
In one study, dieters who ate eggs for breakfast felt full longer and lost more than twice as much weight as those who got the same amount of calories from a bagel for breakfast. Think beyond breakfast, too: eggs boost a salad’s staying power and make for a satisfying snack.
For a mere 95 calories, a medium apple contains 4 grams of fiber. A recent research, published in the Journal of Nutrition, suggests that boosting your fiber intake may help you to prevent weight gain and stimulate weight loss.
Eating a breakfast made with “slow-release” carbohydrates, such as oatmeal or bran cereal, three hours before you exercise may help you burn more fat, suggests a recent study in the Journal of Nutrition. In the study, eating “slow-release” carbohydrates didn’t spike blood sugar as high as eating refined carbohydrates, such as white toast. In turn, insulin levels didn’t spike as high and because insulin plays a role in signaling your body to store fat, having lower levels may help you burn fat.
Chew more to curb hunger. That’s what researchers concluded in a recent study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in which they asked participants to chew a 2-ounce serving of almonds 10, 25 or 40 times. Participants got maximum satisfaction—they felt fuller longer—from the nuts when they chewed 40 times. Chewing more may cause a greater release of fat from the almonds, which triggers hormones that curb hunger,
