Love eating? Eat for weight loss

You, like most people, probably think that eating will only make you fat. That may be true, but you need to remember that food does not make you fat, it is the amount of calories you take every day that makes you gain weight. Each food item has different amounts of calories, and there are some types of food that are low in calories but are nutritious, and some can even speed up metabolism.

Examples of this food items that can help you shed the extra pounds are:

Hot red pepper. Capsaicin, which chilies and peppers are rich in, offers a lot of health benefits, including suppressing your appetite, which can help you eat less and lose unwanted weight.

High-fiber cereal. Studies have proven that food rich in fiber helps in weight loss. Fiber-rich food curbs excessive food intake by making you feel full after eating only a small meal. They also take longer to chew and digest, signaling your brain that you’ve eaten enough food.

Mushrooms. These are very low in calories but have very high nutrient content. Mushrooms are rich in fiber, proteins, iron, riboflavin, niacin, potassium, selenium, copper, and zinc.

Green tea. There are numerous nutrients found in green tea, and aside from having fat-burning catechins that boost metabolism, it also has very potent anti-oxidants that may help prevent cancer and heart disease.

One of the reasons why a lot of people are having a hard time losing weight is because they are tempted to eat more. The trick is to eat low-calorie, nutritious food that also make the taste buds happy.
