Here's some nutritious foods that should form part of your diet. It can actually help you maintain a healthy weight. But keep in mind that there are also other factors that could influence your weight loss efforts. Even if you are on a healthy diet, you still need to be active and everything should be balanced.
  • DAIRY - more and more research are now linking a diet rich in dairy products to healthy weight management. It is believed that calcium in milk, yogurt and cheese plays a key role in terms of this effect. It is important to note that many cheeses have a high fat content and that excess consumption may actually lead to weight gain. With research still ongoing, it is safer to recommend fat-free and low fat milk and yogurt in terms of weight loss.
  • HIGH FIBER FOODS - fruits, vegetables and whole grains is associated with lower body fat stores according to a research by the University of Texas. Another research also indicates that teenage girls who eat a high fiber cereal for breakfast are more likely to maintain a healthy body mass index over a period of ten years.
  • JUICY FOODS - fruits and vegetables with high water content helps to fill you up, so as a result you eat less throughout the day. Watermelon, lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, mushrooms, grapefruit, and cantaloupe are among these juicy foods.
  • ALMONDS - recent research shows that these nuts are a good source of healthy fats, and may enhance the feeling of fullness. But like all nuts, almonds have a high energy value, so you should also limit your intake.
  • SPICY FOODS - when one eats spicy food, it leads to a process called thermogenesis - heat generation. This process burns more calories, which can help out in keeping out unwanted fats. Black pepper seems to stimulate metabolism, ginger has thermogenic properties and mixed spices have a positive impact on metabolism.
  • HONEY - an excellent home remedy for obesity. It mobilizes the extra deposited fat in the body allowing it to be utilized as energy for normal functions.
  • PROTEIN - lean protein can slightly up your metabolism after ingestion, so be sure to include some type with every meal. Good sources include chicken breast, canned light tuna, wild salmon, egg whites, crab, shrimp, tilapia, turkey breast, tofu, lean red meat, low fat dairy, beans and lentils.
  • GINGER - contains no fat or sugar and can be added to foods to heighten flavor without added calories. Chew a thin slice of fresh ginger root before meals or grate a little ginger, mix with some lemon juice and salt and eat a pinch or two.
