Foods for Losing Weight

Eggs

Eggs are excellent and filling breakfast foods. A study from the Journal of the American College of Nutrition revealed that people who ate eggs for breakfast were more satisfied and consumed fewer calories later in the day as compared to those who ate a high-carbohydrate meal. Another study shows that the protein in eggs may help prevent sudden surges in blood sugar. Does egg yolk good to consume?

A large egg contains 75 calories, six grams of protein, and 212 mg. cholesterol. According to the American Heart Association, healthy people can eat up to one egg a day.

Pears

A study in Brazil showed that overweight women who consumed three small-sized pears or apples a day lost more weight as compared to other individuals. Pears contain lots of fiber. A medium-sized pear yields six grams of fiber, which is more than the three grams in an apple. Pears also contain the pectin fiber, which can help lower blood sugar levels.

Apple

"An apple a day keeps obesity away". According to scientists at Penn State, people who ate an apple before lunch took in an average of 187 fewer calories during their main meal. Since a medium-sized apple only has 80 calories, this can save you 107 calories per meal. The subjects also said they feel fuller afterwards.

Apples are an excellent source of pectin, which is a soluble fiber that can lower blood cholesterol and sugar levels. Pectin also binds with heavy metals like lead and mercury and helps the body eliminate these pollutants. According to researcher Dr. Julie Obbagy, the act of chewing an apple also makes you feel you’re eating more food.
