The general formula for weight-loss is pretty simple; consume less calories and burn more calories, typically though exercise. While it may seem simple, the question is which foods do you eat? Also, if you manage to eat less calories, but still feel hungry most of the time, your weight-loss plan will not be sustainable.
What if you could find foods that you can eat a lot of and still keep the calorie count low and not have to compromise your health and wellness? The following foods are foods that will boost your weight-loss and also keep you full and satisfied:
Grapefruits are low in calories, high in enzymes, and full of healthy carbohydrates that will keep you full. There is a compound in the fruit that lowers insulin (the fat-storage hormone) which can lead to weight loss. Cut up a half grapefruit for your next breakfast meal, and see how you feel.
With 95% water content, cucumbers are a wonderful low-calorie food for flushing out your system. Sprinkle some cucumbers with lemon juice, a tablespoon of nutritional yeast and some paprika, and you’ve got a wonderful light lunch or snack. I suggest you choose the Persian cucumbers, as I think they taste better and are sized perfectly for portion control.
Loaded with vitamin c, vitamins, and minerals, kiwi is a slimming food because it keeps things moving in the digestive system. Not only are kiwis delicious, but when eaten on an empty stomach they can do wonders for your slim-plan. Kiwi is a great snack or after-dinner treat.
