A very Powerful article for your Health and especially for whom who want to reduce fat and stay Healthy.
To keep the pounds at bay, eat an apple–or two–a day. Apples are high in pectin, which binds with water and limits the amount of fat your cells can absorb. Apples are also high in fiber, which makes you feel full; numerous studies have found that eating an apple a half hour to an hour before a meal has the result of cutting the calories of the meal. Recent research suggests eating apples has other benefits, too; the antioxidants in apples appear to prevent metabolic syndrome, the combination of high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and prediabetes that tends to accompany thickening around the waist.
Curcumin, the active component of turmeric, is an object of research owing to its properties that suggest they may help to turn off certain genes that cause scarring and enlargement of the heart. Regular intake may help reduce low-density lipoprotein (LDL) or bad cholesterol and high blood pressure, increase blood circulation and prevent blood clotting, helping to prevent heart attack.
This is a thermogenic herb that increases metabolism and helps burn body fat. Cardamom is considered one of the best digestive aids and is believed to soothe the digestive system and help the body process other foods more efficiently.
Foods containing chillies are said to be as foods that burn fat. Chillies contain capsaicin that helps in increasing the metabolism. Capsaicin is a thermogenic food, so it causes the body to burn calories for 20 minutes after you eat the chillies.
Curry leaves :
Incorporating curry leaves into your daily diet can help you lose weight. These leaves flush out fat and toxins, reducing fat deposits that are stored in the body, as well as reducing bad cholesterol levels. If you are overweight, incorporate eight to 10 curry leaves into your diet daily. Chop them finely and mix them into a drink, or sprinkle them over a meal.
An effective fat-burning food, garlic contains the sulphur compound allicin which has anti-bacterial effects and helps reduce cholesterol and unhealthy fats.
Mustard oil :
This has low saturated fat compared to other cooking oils. It has fatty acid, oleic acid, erucic acid and linoleic acid. It contains antioxidants, essential vitamins and reduces cholesterol, which is good for the heart.
Raw or cooked cabbage inhibits the conversion of sugar and other carbohydrates into fat. Hence, it is of great value in weight reduction.
Rich in heart-healthy fatty acids, particularly the aptly named pinolenic acid, pine nuts have been found to boost levels of the so-called “satiety hormone,” ghrelin, which signals your brain that you’re full. When ghrelin levels are high, not only do you not feel hungry, you’re more able to resist cravings. According to studies done in Korea, a big producer of pine nuts, these same fatty acids have been shown to prevent the formation of belly fat, considered the most dangerous kind. In another report on foods that help you lose weight, I discuss almonds, which have many of the same benefits as pine nuts.
Moong dal :
The bean sprouts are rich in Vitamin A, B, C and E and many minerals, such as calcium, iron and potassium. It is recommended as a food replacement in many slimming programmes, as it has a very low fat content. It is a rich source of protein and fibre, which helps lower blood cholesterol level. The high fibre content yields complex carbohydrates, which aid digestion, are effective in stabilising blood sugar and prevent its rapid rise after meal consumption.
Almonds are high in fiber and protein. This food is also rich in magnesium, a substance that stabilizes blood sugar levels and curbs cravings, “Fitness” magazine reports. The fat in almonds is not completely absorbed by the body, which makes this a lean nut. Eat about 1 ounce of almonds daily, which is about 23 almonds.
It is a home remedy for obesity. It mobilises the extra fat deposits in the body allowing it to be utilised as energy for normal functions. One should start with about 10 grams or a tablespoon, taken with hot water early in the morning.
Avocados are a healthful food rich in monounsaturated fats. This type of fat increases your basal metabolic rate, promoting belly fat loss, CBS News reported in May 2009. Avocados are also rich in beta-sitosterol, which lowers cholesterol levels. Slice an avocado on salads or blend it into your morning smoothie each day.
It is the somewhat sour, residual fluid that is left after butter is churned. The probiotic food contains just 2.2 grams of fat and about 99 calories, as compared to whole milk that contains 8.9 grams fat and 157 calories. Regular intake provides the body with all essential nutrients and does not add fats and calories to the body. It is thus helpful in weight loss.
water isn’t “food” but it is the most important substance
you can take into your body. 70% of people are walking around at
least partially dehydrated in this country. What did I tell you guys
about the snow remember?
(Sean reacts and says his snow would no longer be yellow)
Good! We don’t want yellow snow, that isn’t healthy. Water is 100%
essential need to the body, and 100% essential for fat loss. If nothing
else remember this the next time you chug down. How do you think
that fat leaves the body? I will give you a hint, it doesn’t just magically
disappear into nothing.
My next choice is eggs, especially egg whites and omega 3 eggs.
You know there is just nothing you can’t do with these guys.
Scrambled, hard boiled, baking, pancakes, added protein to
smoothies though egg whites only for that one guys okay. They have
the great BV value of protein you can ask for, the omega 3 have good
fats. Not only is it a easy food, it is a cheap food. So yeah, 2
on the list, eggs.
Four is a personal obsession, it is hard not to put it at one because of
my pure love for it but nonetheless here it is, 4, Oatmeal.
A lot of people get very confused about oatmeal, how to cook it,
which brand to get. Do I get instant, steel cut, rolled? My advice, cost
wise and ease wise is to go with the Old Fashion Rolled Oats. Now,
do steel oats have a higher fiber source and better process? Of
course, but they aren’t as cheap, not as easy to find and take longer
to cook and I find in some areas if you ask to much of people they
end up giving up all together. So go into the store, get the old fashion
rolled oats, still lower GI than instant, still a great source of fiber and
great for the heart. Best of all they are easy to work with and cheap to
Berries. Particularly I would chose wild blueberries, raspberries and
cranberries. Some of the best sources of anti-oxidants, fiber, low
calories, easy to make anything taste good with and if you buy frozen
you can save some cash, if you buy frozen and in bulk you can save
Greens is classified as turnips, spinach, collard, kale, I would even
throw in broccoli into that mix. These are the true super foods.
Vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants, low calorie, list goes on and
You know even if, you know a lot of people fight me on the
vegetables, I wasn’t a fan of veggies myself but let me tell you that
you can sneak these suckers in so much you don’t even know they
are there and one day you wake up and not only have you developed
a taste for them, you actually like them and want to have them in your
meals. Put them in an omelet, vegetable lasagna, toss into a shake
with berries and protein and BAM you have one heck of a power
combo. Don’t neglect you veggies!
Okay now that I am finished with my “eat your veggies” talk we are
going to get to Whey Protein. Of course if you have a whey
intolerance you can go with egg, but basically what I am speaking of
is whey protein supplement powder. In general I am really pro whole
foods but, in certain times a protein supplement has its place,
especially post workout and if choosing a protein powder, whey is
one. If you use it right and time it right in the diet but still
provide yourself with whole foods, it can be one heck of a protein
source and save you some time as well.
Next up is fish, I think that fish is, you know really I don’t like it. I still
haven’t come to enjoy any fish that wasn’t a childhood fish stick, but I
eat it! I eat it because it is a source of good fats and amazing source
of protein. So maybe you are in the same boat and team as me, and
you don’t like getting it down, do it anyway.
Sweet Potato :
Alright, last one, remember I have to stop at nine because Sean
wanted to be cute and throw off my whole process, so this was tough
but my winner, coming in at nine is Sweet Potatoes.
Sweet potatoes deemed the “antidiabetic” food are filled with antioxidants,
vitamins, minerals, and of all starch foods are the easiest to
digest. Did I mention they are really yummy?
So with this list realize that if you ate nothing but what is on this list
that you have a complete balanced diet right here. Complete amino
acids, good fats, vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants,
