Super foods are nutritional powerhouses that help build bones, prevent chronic diseases, improve your eyesight, and even keep your mind sharp. Now new evidence has been found to show that these foods can also help keep you slim. If you want to lose weight and keep it down then keep scrolling down to find out what you should eat.
Black beans, oats and avocados
One cup of black beans has 25 grams of satisfying proteins and it has none of the saturated fat found in other proteins like red meat. Oats are full of fiber; so just one serving will keep you full for the day. Just a half-cup packs 4.6 grams of Resistant Starch, a healthy carb that boosts metabolism and burns fat. Eating fats is not a bad thing if the fat is the good kind like eating an avocado. Oleic acid is a compound found in avocados that quiet down hunger. Stick to a quarter or a half of an avocado and watch that belly fat melt away. The creamy fruit is also packed with fiber and protein.
Salmon, blueberries, and broccoli
Salmon is a much leaner way to get the amount of protein your body craves. A 2001 study found that dieters eating a
MUFA-rich diet lost an average of 9 pounds, while their low-fat diet counterparts gained, on average, 6. Blueberries are best known for their incredible anti-aging effects. Another great thing about them is that just one cup will fill you up and it only has 80 calories. Broccoli is best known for not tasting so great but it is great for the prevention of cancer, so the choice is yours.
Brown rice, pears, and wine
If you love rice like I do one healthier alternative would be to eat brown rice. It is full of fiber, it fills you up and it has low calories. What more could you want. Just one pear contains fifteen percent of your daily fiber needs. It had been proven that women who eat three pears a day tend to be more full and lose more weight. Wine lovers everywhere rejoice! You finally have a healthy reason to drink wine. Resveratrol is a antioxidant found in grapes skin, Studies show that moderate wine drinkers have narrower waists and less belly fat than liquor drinkers. Downing a glass can boost your calorie burn for a good 90 minutes.
Grapefruit, kidney beans, almonds
Grapefruits are great for you; they are very high in vitamin c. They also conquer the effects of stress and aging and they can help fight colds and cancer. Kidney beans are truly a super food. Not only are they full of protein and folate (vitamin B9). They also have magnesium, potassium, and a number of other health promoting nutrients. Despite their high fat and calorie content, almonds are very rapidly becoming a super food. In their natural state, almonds contain almost entirely ‘good’ fats or monosaturated fats, which can lower cholesterol and the risk of heart disease.
Green tea, lentils, bananas
Green tea far outweighs even some of the most powerful super foods we know of today. It contains over six times the antioxidants in goji berries, seven times the antioxidants in dark chocolate, 17 times more antioxidants than blueberries, and 60 times the antioxidants found in spinach. Lentils are a super food full of nutrients that we require and they are very easy to make! Bananas are gaining the title of super food four reasons; they are famously full of potassium, they have antacid effects, they are full of energy, and they contain high amounts of tryptophan, an amino acid that helps boost serotonin production which can lead to better moods and a better night sleep.
