Good Foods To Eat To Make You Lose Weight

Jul 25, 2008
"What foods I shouldn't eat to lose weight?" This has been a common question of people who want to lose weight because of the notion that once you avoid certain foods, like high fat, sweets, and starchy foods, you will naturally lose weight. However, knowing the what foods to eat to lose weight is just as important.

Combining your knowledge of what to avoid and what to eat can be your strong ally to burn fat naturally. Dieting alone will not burn those fats. You should never starve or let yourself go hungry lest your efforts to diet will be defeated. So the key to weight loss without going hungry is for you to eat almost the same amount of food with lower calories.

Foods To Eat To Help You Lose Weight

1. You need fat. Yes, as much as it's hard to believe it even helps in your metabolism and it's your source of body fuel. However, you need to know WHAT kind of fat is good for you and remember that too much of it can lead to weight gain too. You can get good fat from, fish, nuts, olives and replace your luncheon meats and other processed foods. Keep your salad dressings "lite".

2. Never starve yourself by using "super" low carbohydrate diets. You need carbohydrates to sustain your daily activities. Carbs are your source of energy. Replace your white bread, potato chips, fries and whole milk. Keep your vegetables simple by steaming them.

3. Eating high protein foods can do a lot of good for your muscle building and keeping your bones strong. Just be sure to take off the skin from chicken and turkey. Eat a lot of white kidney beans or peas.

4. I'm sure you have heard fitness advisers and trainers say time and time again to drink plenty of water. Water helps in flushing out toxins from our body and if you add some slices of lemon to your drinking water, this can increase your metabolism thus, it will help you burn fat faster.

It is best to spread your calorie intake throughout the day, and you should create a caloric deficit so your body will burn the excess fat in your body. If you eat less calories a day then your body will look for the stored fat in you and use it for energy.
