Your Next Bite Can Have You Losing Weight! Here’s How…

Ask any nutritionist or personal trainer: What you put onto your plate is so, so important for weight loss. But we’re not talking about simply adding more veggies, fruits, and lean meats to your eating plan. There are certain foods that research has actually linked to speedier weight loss. Add them to your grocery list, and get ready to see the pounds drop.

Hummus People who regularly eat this chickpea dip have, on average, eight percent smaller waistlines than those who don’t. Why? It’s packed with satiating fiber and protein.

Oat Bran Eating oat bran in the a.m. can help curb your hunger. Just like with hummus, the fiber in oat bran plays a major role.

Tea Calling all tea lovers! The catechins and caffeine in this superdrink may help your body oxidize fat faster.

Prunes People who eat a handful of the fruit daily lost weight faster than people who didn’t. The reason? Surprise, surprise: fiber!

Avocado Pack yourself half an avocado as part of your lunch, and you’ll feel full until dinner rolls around. The fiber, potassium, and healthy fats in the green stuff may curb your cravings so that you skip afternoon trips to the vending machine.

Peanuts or Peanut Butter Adding either of these to your breakfast can help keep your cravings in check for up to 12 hours. Why? Peanut and peanut butter eaters in the experiment had higher levels of the hormone peptide YY, which makes you feel full after eating. Limit yourself to two tablespoons of peanut butter or an ounce of peanuts with your breakfast—the nutty goodness is also fairly caloric.

    Hello Pink Ray,

    Been reading your blog with interest for a few months, and I am really interested in a dedicated matter…..whatever I do I cannot seem to lose weight.

    I am in my 40’s and I am just stuck….not going up, but not going down either. I have an office job, therefor not active, but I am trying to eat healthy.

    Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated

      Hi Emmy,

      You and I, and millions of others, are in the same boat! Everyone is different, there’s no one way to lose weight. But I’ve been following a different stance myself lately… I try to eat well, stay as active as possible at work (ie getting up from your desk every 30 min or so) and look and dress fabulously. Altogether, the effect is stupendous, you feel like a stare and it shines out!! And maybe cut the chocolate 🙂

      Keep coming back to our site Emmy! I always have great tips and suggestions!!
