Superfoods build bones, prevent chronic diseases, improve your eyesight, and even keep your mind sharp. But did you know new evidence suggests these foods can also help you get and stay slim. source-health.com
I'll be looking at a few Superfoods that can help boost weight loss and staying healthy.
-Avocados- Avocados are incredibly healthy and loaded with important nutrients such as fibre & proteins; they are also a very good source of nearly 20 vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients per 1-oz. serving. It also contains Oleic acid which may trigger your body to actually quiet hunger. Eating a quarter of an Avocado at a time helps you burn that belly fat.
-Black Beans- A cup of Black beans is packed with 15grams of protein and doesn't contain fats and oil found in other protein sources such as red meat. This is a really good source to help you stay slim and lose weight when consumed in moderation.
- Salmon- I love Salmon especially when I make it with some steamed veggies. It is a really good source of protein that can help you feel full without adding any fat. Salmon is a leaner choice than consuming red meat and helps boost weight loss.
-Brown Rice- Now as an African, this is probably not really my best friend lol. I say this as I cannot imagine eating brown rice but as the saying goes "you are what you eat", so therefore I need to look after me and what goes in my body.
Brown rice is a very healthy Fibre packed alternative to White rice. A half cup serving contains 1.7 grams of Resistant Starch that helps boost metabolism and burns fat. Plus it is also low density meaning it is heavy and filling but low in calories. I will be buying some Brown rice on my next shopping trip.
-Wine- Now this is my best one, when I saw this online I thought OK this can't be true but hey ho keep reading.
Resveratrol is a famed antioxidant found in grape skin & contained in wine; helps stops fat storage. Studies show that moderate wine drinkers have narrower waists and less belly fat than liquor drinkers. Downing a glass can boost your calorie burn for a good 90 minutes. (source-health.com)
