Say so long to jiggle and wiggle and hello to fit and fab! Lasting weight loss begins in the kitchen, and we’ve got some fantastic food ideas to help you achieve the look you want. Add these 13 foods to eat for faster weight loss to your healthy shopping list.
Life is busy, and the modern food industry seems like it’s helping us out by offering packaged meals and snacks. But we pay a price for that convenience: extra weight. Highly processed foods can be high in added refined sugar and artificial sweeteners, both of which contribute to everything from underarm jiggle to thick middles.
The sugar found in highly processed foods reduces the brain’s ability to send stop eating signals. The result? One minute you’re opening a sleeve of cookies. The next, you’ve got nothing but an empty sleeve and tons of guilt.
Change doesn’t happen overnight, but you can start taking positive steps this week. Add at least a few of these weight loss foods to your shopping list. Enjoy the recipes we share below or browse through SkinnyMs. Clean-Eating Recipes for hundreds of delicious weight loss meal ideas.
These healthy nuts are ideal weight loss foods. They contain good fats that curb the appetite, helping you feel fuller longer. Health up lunchtime with Clean-Eating Almond Butter & Jelly or prepare a batch of snack goodness with No-Bake Almond Cranberry Energy Balls.
Berries are excellent foods for fast weight loss, but we love blueberries in particular because they combine high fiber and antioxidant levels while satisfying your sweet tooth. Use fresh or frozen berries in this Vanilla Quinoa and Roasted Blueberry Breakfast Bowl or spread tastiness with this no-sugar-added Clean-Eating Blueberry Jam.
4. Chili Pepper
Spice up your menu with this tasty weight loss superfood. It contains capsaicin, a substance that temporarily boosts metabolism and reduces the appetite. Slow Cooker Chicken Chili and Spicy Chili with Fire-Roasted Tomatoes incorporate chili powder, which retains the capsaicin.
5. Cruciferous Vegetables
Veggies like broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, and cabbage are very high in fiber and low in calories, making them go-to weight loss foods. Try Fried Rice with Cabbage or Broccoli and Sun-Dried Tomatoes.
6. Green Tea
Green tea is packed with potent antioxidants called catechins, which help the body lose fat. Enjoy it unsweetened or grab a sweeter green tea fix with healthy drink recipes like a Green Tea Mango Smoothie and Orange Pomegranate Green Tea.
