You must have heard that eating egg whites is the way to lose those extra pounds! Well, that a myth! Eggs taste good when you have the yolk too - have it whole and do not deprive yourself. Yolk is rich in proteins which helps in release of a hormone which is closely associated with fat burning, especially belly fat. Egg yolk is rich in vitamin E, which means you are going to be full for a longer time. Your food cravings are reduced, so you are assured of lesser calories intake through in between snacks munching. So, go ahead and have eggs!

Parmesan Cheese

Yes, you read it right! Your favorite cheese is not that bad! Have a brick of Parmesan cheese everyday and you will be doing your bit towards weight loss! Use grated Parmesan cheese on whole grain crackers and you have a yummy snack ready. It is the best in flavors, good for your bone health, tastes good and helps you to lose weight too.

Including flax seeds in the diet on a regular basis is a good way to lose weight. Flax seeds are rich in omega-3 fats. They help in lowering cholesterol too.

Vitamin B present in flax seeds help in converting proteins and carbohydrates into energy. Magnesium present in flax seeds relaxes the muscles and reduces cramps.

Having salsa without its usual partners ( margaritas and tortilla chips) is a good way to lose weight. This is low calorie substitute of many dips. It can be served with a generous serving of hummus instead of layering it with calorie rich dips. Salsa tastes good when served with other toppings like lettuce or olives which are all good for health.
