Super Foods Shown To Boost Weight Loss

 

It seems like all you hear about lately is the latest fad diet or juice cleanse and how simply everyone is doing hot yoga. As obesity levels in America continue to rise to epidemic levels, more people than ever are trying to lose weight. While some people seem to be able to melt away their winter weight gain within weeks, others are not so lucky. People that struggle to lose weight often need an extra boost – or medical intervention – to help promote their metabolic function and activity levels.

A natural way to give your weight loss efforts a boost is to eat super foods. These are foods that have been shown to promote immunity, hormone regularity, and fat burn. By combining certain fruits, vegetables and nuts into your daily intake, you may be able to begin losing weight faster. One fruit that is easy to incorporate into your diet is grapefruit. This large citrus fruit is full of phytochemicals, which have been shown to zap fat away and promote future exercise performance.

Many oils have been shown to promote weight loss as well. While most people who are trying to shed a few pounds try to steer clear of fat, certain healthy fats exist within the oils of different seeds or plants. One oil that you may not have heard of is avocado oil, and it’s fat-blasting power is out of this world. A recent study showed that taking participants who consumed three tablespoons of avocado oil per day lost two percent of their belly fat in just a month. Add this oil into your daily routine through cooking or supplements.

Some of the best super foods to eat when you want to lose weight are nuts. Pistachios, those delicious green snacks that people can’t stop cracking, have recently been shown to lower BMI numbers. BMI, or body mass index, is one of the main ways to gauge obesity. But the ultimate fat blasting nut out there is actually the almond. These delicious snacks are sometimes referred to as natures diet pills due to their astounding efficacy in promoting weight loss. Researchers believe that the almond’s rich amino acid content helps the body burn more fat and carbohydrates.
