Best Foods For Weight Loss

Updated on September 5, 2015

Why abstain from food when there are foods out there that can actually help in weight loss? The idea seems foreign--eating to lose weight. The following five foods, though, aren't just old wives tales. These foods are supported through scientific facts in proving that they help in weight loss. Most of the following foods are low in calories, to aid in your diet plan, and high in stomach fulfillment. These foods will keep the hunger away.

Eggs. These are the super-foods if you are looking for a weight loss food that both works as high in protein and is very beneficial for your overall health as well. Once known as a cause of heart attacks and higher cholesterol, science has certified the facts that follow this food and debunked the old myths. Not only that, but the discovery of eggs as a diet food has come out. This is due to the high amount of protein and healthy fats making the eater feel more full, leading to lesser eating without the following hunger pangs that accompany most diet plans.

Kale isn't popular for nothing. This leafy green is making its name as a diet food and has had tremendous popularity. Kale is low in calories but high in fiber--this both takes care of the fiber portion of your meal and, due to the low calories, can be eaten in copious amounts. The inclusion of calcium is also a plus, as calcium has been shown to assist in the burning of fat, in some studies.

Watery foods. What does that even mean? It refers to fruits and vegetables that contain water. One such super veggie is cauliflower. This cancer battling vegetable is also good for helping you lose weight. Not only that, but the creativity in cauliflower recipes is unlimited. There are endless of choices to vary how you eat this super veggie.

But you can't survive only on eggs and vegetables. What about the protein? Salmon can take care of that. What it lacks in calories, which is good for you, it makes up with its many useful benefits. Its reduction in inflammation not only keeps the weight off, but also helps in the reduction of acne. The perfect protein.

The food of the ages, boiled potatoes, has sustained the hunger of our ancestors for many years. It is also scored as the highest fulfilling food. These bad boys will definitely keep the hunger at bay. Not only is it low in calories and high in fulfillment, it is cheap. Potatoes can be bought in huge quantities for only a small amount of money.

As with all diets, what is important is a plan and will power. You can't be eating foods that are counterproductive to the effort you are putting in. Customize a food plan and stick to it--do your research on more low caloric foods and add them to the plan. The will power comes easy, as these foods keep you feeling full, healthy, and don't have your stomach turning in on itself.
