Welcome to this hidden treasure trove of the best foods for weight loss.
I’m sure you’ve heard time and time again that shedding as many calories as you possibly can from your diet is the most efficient way to lose weight, but that is not the case.
You need to counter cravings that lead you into going overboard eating less healthy options – the best way to do this is loading your diet with healthy, nutrient-rich foods.
This list of superfoods will help you lose weight and maintain your weight loss, give you a huge energy boost so you can work out harder, and send your metabolism into overdrive burning extra calories.
So, incorporate as many of these superfoods into your diet as you can – then watch the pounds melt away!
This dark, leafy green is loaded with nutrients and is super low in calories.
In fact, 2 cups of spinach contain only 14 calories! It’s high in protein (increases muscle mass to tone your body), iron, fiber, and potassium (reduces bloating).
Spinach can be thrown into meals and is a great way to add volume helping you feel fuller longer.
You can also throw it into smoothies and salads. A must-have addition to your diet for weight loss
2. Chia Seeds
These seeds may be small but they pack a healthy punch.
Chia seeds are loaded with healthy fats (omega-3 fatty acids) and fiber and are actually one of the most nutrient-dense foods available.
A tablespoon of chia seeds adds 5.5 grams of fiber to your diet for only 69 calories.
They’re even thought to promote exercise performance without the added sugar – so better workouts!
Try adding chia seeds to smoothies, sprinkled over your cereal or toast and even incorporate them into your baking.
Did you know watermelon gets its color from the antioxidant lycopene?
It is loaded with water, 92 percent in fact – which makes it an incredible ally in weight loss.
Proper hydration has been proven as a key element in weight loss because it stops your body from confusing thirst from hunger.
It also helps your metabolism work optimally which means more calories burned!
Don’t believe what you’ve heard about watermelon being high in calories – 1 cup of watermelon has only 46 calories which makes it a great, healthy snack.
Popcorn a superfood? You must be crazy!
Actually, air-popped popcorn is a great tool for weight loss.
Portion-wise it has fewer calories than any most other snacks – only 31 calories per cup.
It’s a complex carbohydrate that digests slower (keeping you full longer) and provides sustained energy (no crash, no cravings).
Just make sure you don’t grab the salt and butter loaded pre-made versions.
Air pop the popcorn yourself and add a little salt, easy!
A great on-the-go snack, apples also contain antioxidants which may help prevent metabolic syndrome reducing health problems like obesity.
They also have a hefty dose of fiber which fills you up – 4 grams in one medium apple.
One way I love to eat apples is to slice one up on a plate and sprinkle it with cinnamon.
Pop the plate in the microwave for 60 to 90 seconds and you have a delicious, healthy treat.
Tomatoes are great at reducing bloat because they’re high in potassium.
They also are loaded with the antioxidant lycopene which aids weight loss and contains a high percentage of water – hydration!
1 cup of sliced tomatoes only contains 32 calories, so incorporate them into your diet by adding them to salads or as a side to your dinner.
Dieticians love chickpeas and consider them a must-have addition to dinners.
They’re loaded with protein and fiber – 12 grams of each in a single cup.
This combination means they leave you feeling full and are digested slowly.
No wonder they’re a dietary staple throughout the Mediterranean and India!
8. Dark Chocolate
I’m sure you’ve heard about the many benefits of dark chocolate.
For those of us with a sweet tooth, you’ll be glad to know dark chocolate is loaded with antioxidants, fiber, and magnesium.
An ounce serving of 70% cacao dark chocolate has 3 grams of fiber and 68 mg of magnesium which improves muscle function.
I like to have my dark chocolate after meals to curb my sweet-tooth cravings.
I find it helps me avoid reaching for other snacks between meals.
