With so many diet methods and restrictive eating plans out there, it can be hard to know what will work for you. Adding these nutrient-packed, fat-brining foods into your diet will speed up your weight loss results, and reduce belly fat.
Many everyday foods are packed with weight-loss potential, with some using more calories to digest than they contain alone.
While some foods such as green, leafy vegetables and fruit are already a firm favourite with dieters, some other weight-loss aiding foods will surprise even the most seasoned of dieters. Despite being packed with calories, high-fat foods such as avocados, salmon, olive oil and nuts are actually loaded with fats that boost weight loss and reduce belly fat.
Nutrition experts recommend eating fiber-containing foods in place of processed carbohydrates at all meals. Examples include oatmeal instead of sugary-cereals for breakfast, salads with low-fat dressings for lunch, vegetables instead of French fries for dinner, and almonds instead of candy for snacks. Fiber helps control blood sugar and appetite. The American Dietetic Association recommends 25-35 grams of fiber per day – while most Americans get only 14 grams of fiber per day.
