13 Foods That Are PERFECT For Weight Loss!

PERFECT For Weight Loss

Trying to lose weight? Exercise routine not enough? Can’t figure out what foods to eat? Read NOW for 13 foods that are PERFECT for weight loss!

 

For some reason or the other, we are all always and inevitably looking to loose some weight at some point in our lives. Most of the time, we get the methods wrong. Almost all of the time, the goal is wrong.

 

Rather than trying to burn weight and calories through unnatural, extreme exertions, the Earth is full of natural foods that regulate our metabolism and battle weight gain, and work towards a maintained weight.

 

Start eating the following foods in your daily routine as a supplement to any exercise you may be doing. Not only will you lose weight or maintain weight- whatever your aim may be- but you will find yourself more energized and healthy than ever before!

 

Here is a list of some awesome foods you can eat to manage your weight- you can eat them in any way that you want, as long as you do actually eat them!

 

 

  • Leafy Greens

These include spinach, kale, colliards, and a few others. They have low count of carbohydrates and calories, and have great levels of fiber.

 

 

  • Cruciferous Vegetables

These include broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and brussel sprouts. They not only fill the stomach quickly, but are also high in fiber and protein!

 

 

  • Beans and Legumes

These include lentils, black beans, kidney beans, and more. These are good for weight loss because they are incredibly high in protein!

 

 

  • Eggs

Eating whole eggs is really the best thing you can do to lose weight! Studies show that they are extremely fulfilling and full of protein. They are proven to make you feel full throughout the entire day!

 

 

  • Lean Beef

Despite common bad rep, eating UNPROCESSED red meat is actually good for weight loss because it is high in protein- and undeniably very fulfilling!

 

 

  • Chicken Breast

Meat in general tends to get bad rep for all the conditions the excess of it can lead to. Rather than eating it in excess, having a good portion of meats, including chicken breast, can really help to lose weight because of the fulfillment in small portions, and high protein!

 

 

  • Salmon

Salmon is known for being good as a food for weight loss because it is full of protein and healthy fats- not to mention tons of vital nutrients and vitamins!

 

 

  • Tuna

Tuna is not only low on calories, but is very high in protein and is also very fulfilling in small amounts! There is a reason it is called the lean fish!

 

 

  • Soup

Obviously, soup is just the mixture of other foods mentioned above with water. Although it seems like there is no difference, studies have shown that there is more satisfaction and feelings of the stomach being full for longer periods of time when eating foods good for weight loss in soup form.

 

 

  • Fruit

Some of the best fruit for weight loss are avocados and grapefruit. Other than that, the vast majority of fruits, if eaten in proper portions, are excellent for weight loss and contain the perfect amount of natural sugars! Nothing beats the natural stuff!

 

 

  • Nuts

Although they are quite high in the fat-measurement, nuts are not by nature weight-inducing. Eating nuts as a snack in small amounts can curb hunger and prevent entire meals- they are that fulfilling!

 

 

  • Whole Grains

Some of the worst weight-inducing foods are grains and breads and rice- and not surprisingly, these are the staples of every meal across the world. Almost every meal is made largely of rice and grains. Replacing white bread with whole grain in more than one aspect can greatly contribute to weight loss- as they are natural and healthier!

 

 

  • Yogurt (NOT nonfat!)

In an indirect way, yogurt is awesome for weight loss because it is made of a special kind of bacteria (have you heard of probiotics) that improve your gut’s functioning and this improving not only your immune system as a bonus, but your metabolism rates and your digestion as well!

 

 

There are tons of foods out there that are ideal for weight loss, and a few spotlight ones that you eat almost every day and can focus on more than the fattening rice and breads are listed above!

 

Balance your diet, and focus on different ways of eating foods that are perfect for weight loss to get the results you need- and be healthier and happier in the process!

Have a Healthy, Hearty Breakfast- Without Waking Up Earlier!

 

In the raceway of live in nowadays, it is becoming more and more common to skip breakfast in the morning hullabaloo- let alone a healthy, hearty breakfast. Despite knowing that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, we overlook breakfast simply because of deadlines and waking up late.

 

Although there are many ways to ensure you have a proper breakfast such as waking up early and adjusting your sleep schedule to make time, we all know that it is sometimes impossible to do so.

 

So is there any possibly solution where we can not skimp on sleep or worse- adjust our entire schedules- where we can have a hearty, healthy breakfast on the run!

 

The answer is- yes- we can easily make do with the time we have and make sure we leave home with a satisfied stomach!

 

Here are a couple of hearty, healthy breakfast ideas that you can have on the go in your morning rush!

 

  • Yogurt, Fruit, Granola

Any combination of yogurt, fruit, and granola can be a healthy option for you in the morning! With the probiotics that support your immune system in yogurt, to the all-around vitamin goodness of fruit and the natural essence of granola, there is no denying that the quickness of combining these three along with the appeal and taste has no competition!

 

 

  • Boiled Egg

We always hear that the best possible thing you can eat in the morning is an egg. This being true- it of course takes some time to make an egg. Yes, it doesn’t take long to make an egg and scarf it down, but with the time crunch of our busy schedules, sometimes a fried egg can’t cut it. Set an egg to boil while getting ready, and it will be ready to peel on the way out! It is quick, easy, and provides you with energy you need for the day! Put it on bread with some mayo, salt, and pepper to amp the taste!

 

 

  • Recycled Sandwiches

There are always leftovers in the fridge- be it of a curry from the night before, some turkey or boiled chicken- you name it! Warm it and slap some onto a bread and you have yourself a full breakfast to get you through the day!

 

 

  • Instant Oatmeal and Milk

Avoiding cereals and granola bars for the obvious reasons of them being terribly processed and sugar-laden, oatmeal, even when instant, is the better, healthier, and more natural option. Quickly warm a cup of instant oatmeal and fill it with milk. Milk is always an amazing option, it can serve as an entire meal with just a side of oatmeal!

 

 

  • Dates

More popular in the Middle East, dates are not as common in the West, but can still be easily found in your local markets. Thousands of years ago, desert nomads would survive on a single date for the entire day! With their long laborious days in the scorching sun, a single vitamin packed-date would contain enough energy for them!

 

We all have heard countless of times just how important it is to have a healthy and hearty breakfast. However, with our daily time crunch we tend to ignore this fact and continue with our busy schedules and ignoring breakfast as the most important meal of the day.

 

Try any of the above quick and easy breakfast ideas that are not only easy, but healthy and hearty! There are countless options out there, but these are definitely suited to your busy schedule and health needs, if that is what you are looking for!

Water Is More Important

Don’t know why water is so important? Read this article NOW to find out just how important water really is- which is much more than you think!

 

In the modern lifestyle today, only too often do we brush aside the importance of water in our lives. We face such a wide variety of health issues that, attempting to solve them with a tremendous scope of medications. But sometimes, we wonder- is there any natural way?

 

The truth is, we ingest so many genetically modified foods, and drinks that are so sugar-ridden and made of artificial ingredients and dyes that our immunity is down the tubes.

 

Unfortunately, with the type of food available on the shelves and in the market, it seems practically impossible sometimes to go entirely organic- with the organic market at times minting money under its titles to attract our fed up consumers, selling without having true value!

 

Are we without hope?

 

The fact of the matter is, there is one magic natural substance that, though altered and available in many forms, is still so critical to daily life that we can find it easily in an almost pure form (chlorine exists, but bacteria is gone).

 

This so-called magical substance that does wonders- and keeps us alive- is water!

 

All too often we grotesquely misrepresent the importance of water, and why keeping up to date with the 8 glasses of water a day principle is critical in preventing many illnesses as well as keeping us up and running!

 

Here are some reasons that water is so very important- much more important than you might think!

 

  • Water is life

Water is the source of all life. When NASA looks to outer space in hopes for new life, or the possibility of life- as seen in many science fiction movies out there- the first thing they look for us water. Water is the basic building block of survival, and a person can live for a week on just water without any food, whereas a person can die of dehydration living without water for just 2-3 days!

 

 

  • More than half of your body is water!

That’s right, the majority of our body is made of water! 85% percent of our brain is made up of water, 80% of our blood is made of water, and 70% of our muscles are made up of water! On average, around 50-65% of your body is made up of water! With constant relieving of oneself, and the way water filters through bodily functions and systems, it is almost crucial to replenish water supply to keep our body going!

 

 

  • Water is critical to bodily functions

Water is critical in almost every single bodily function you can think of. Even the smallest percentage of water lowering in your body- as little as only a 2% drop- can foggy up your short term memory! Among some of the important, life maintaining processes that require water for proper processing include the absorption of nutrients from your food, chemical reactions inside your body, and proper digestion. With the blood being made up of so much water, is no wonder that for all vital bodily functions where transport is needed, water plays a key role!

 

 

  • Water removes toxins

When your food is digested and the waste needs to be removed, it is water that removes these toxins from the body in the end. When we fill our stomachs with too much food and not enough space for water, then our body stores the fat without metabolizing it- leading to weight gain. A good rule of thumb is to keep your stomach ⅓ full of food, ⅓ of water, and ⅓ of air. With the equivalence of water and food, the water is then used to help metabolize the extra fat and maintain healthy body weight!

 

 

  • Water regulates temperature

It is no coincidence that when you are hot, your body perspires and leaves you sweaty. This is because when the body overheats, it lets out “water” (read: sweat) to cool the body temperature down to normal. This is why it has become so normative and almost unquestionable to keep yourself hydrated in the heat or when exercising, because you are losing just as much water as you are drinking, and intake will obviously have to increase!

Contrary to belief, dehydration can even happen in the winter months! This is because the dryness  can serve to “dry up” moisture, which leaves our skin dry and itchy oftentimes, our lips chapped, and our mouth dry as well. You can become dehydrated quicker than you expect- so it is important to keep a balanced intake no matter the season!

 

 

  • Keep your cells hydrated!

Not only can your body become dehydrated, but on the most atomic level, so can your cells! When you do not take in enough water, it can lead to a serious case called Chronic Cellular Dehydration, where the body’s cells become too weak for functioning. As is obvious, every single bodily function that keeps us alive depends on the proper functioning of our cells. If we fail to keep ourselves sufficiently hydrated, our very bodily functions can slow down!

 

Now that you know only a few of the many reasons why water is so important and crucial to our daily lives, it will be easier to convince yourself to drink that bottle of water rather than that can of soda when you feel thirsty! After all- you have a body you need to run!

 

A parting piece of advice- remember that the rule of thumb of amount of water to drink per day is not just 8 glasses of water on average- in reality, we need to drink half of our body weight in ounces per day- (for example,  if you weight 120 lb, the minimum water you should drink is 60 ounces per day, breaking it down throughout the day’s progression in whatever parts you can consume without living in the bathroom!) for the MINIMUM requirements for proper and complete hydration. Tripling this amount yields even better results!
