Fast Guide To Food For Weight Loss

By Nea Brown

The internet is packed with all kinds of information and hype surrounding miracle diets, slimming pills and short cuts to getting in shape. While much of this is useful, a fair slice of it is misinformation and delivered by people with a product to sell. In order to make sure you don't get duped by an overzealous marketer's views on a fad product, it's best to seek independent advice on the best food for weight loss.

To help you do so, this guide will go through some of the best foods to add to your diet if you want to burn some fat. Organizing your diet is up to you. If you can build it around these foods, however, it will almost certainly be a good one for lowering the digits next time you take to the scale.

Eggs are a great starting point for those looking to lose some pounds. People who eat eggs in the morning, instead of toast, bagels, cereal or any other carbohydrate laden food, will stay full for longer. Carb based foods leave you hankering for a snack soon after. Eggs won't do that.

Most breaks we take during the day are either complemented by tea or coffee. Switching to green tea is a great option to choose instead as it speeds the rate of your metabolism, allowing you to convert food to energy much quicker. Also the complex cocktail of vitamins, antioxidants and other good stuff in a cup of green tea lowers your body's cholesterol.

Sandwiches are another enemy should you be planning to slim down. Replacing your lunchtime sandwich with a simple fresh soup is one definite step towards a flatter belly. A nice fresh soup will also be filled with vitamins which will do plenty of favors to your body.

If you're the kind of person who likes to sprinkle sugar on their snacks, the idea of switching cold turkey to plain, unsweetened treats might seem like a sad one indeed. Here is where cinnamon comes in handy. When you've just eaten a meal, your insulin spikes which is why you often find yourself hankering for something sweet to help it go down. Cinnamon helps control this urge and is much less fattening than sugar.

The next one is a little controversial but has proven time and again to be a helpful slimming aid: nuts. While undoubtedly fattening, nuts are not as fattening as most other snack foods. So if you need to slim but get the urge to snack, grab a bag of nuts instead of the usual bag of chips or chocolate cookies.

The most obvious of all the slimming foods is, of course, fruit and certainly adding more to your diet will help to lower your weight. Pears are probably the current champion of all the fruity slimmers - they're packed with fiber and really fill you up. Apples are the silver medalist and grapefruits are not far behind.

The most important thing of all when looking for food for weight loss is that you keep a balanced, healthy diet. Do not lose sight of your health trying to burn pounds. Make sure you're getting enough energy from the food you eat while still avoiding the hard-core fatties.
