Fantastic Foods To Help You Lose Weight Naturally

It’s never been easier, or harder, for us to lose weight.

There is a teeming market of celebrity weight loss pills, and supplements, and while there’s no denying that they can yield great results, choosing the right one for your goals can be confusing when there are so many brands out there.  

Sometimes we can become so distracted by weight loss solutions that we lose out on the most obvious solution of all… Food!

It was Hippocrates, the father of the study of medicine, who said “Let food be thy medicine” and it’s important not only to attain health but to be healthy the right way. This means natural, sustainable weight loss that makes sure we’re well nourished and healthy as well as slim.

Here are some naturally fat burning foods that can help burn stored body fat, improve the building of muscle, and do so naturally and sustainably.

Fermented foods are your foundation

You need a healthy digestive system to ensure that you’re digesting foods optimally. Fermented foods like miso, tempeh, sauerkraut, and unsweetened Greek yoghurt can improve your digestive health, regulate gut function and prevent feelings of bloating.

You wanna get nuts? Let’s get nuts!

Almonds are 13% protein and incredibly high in fiber which will help you to feel full and sated to reduce the risk of cravings. They are also proven to lower cholesterol.

They’re low in saturated fatty acids, rich in unsaturated fatty acids and full of natural antioxidants to support a healthy immune system.

Be berry, berry good!

While many people tend to lump all fruits together, pound for pound, berries are amongst the most nutrient-dense fruits. They’re packed full of fiber and antioxidants but their relatively low sugar content (sweet and juicy as they may be), means that they are lower on the glycemic index, having a lower insulin response, reducing the amount of fat that it stored by the body.

Fats can be friends

Fats have an unnecessarily bad rap. Unsaturated fats like those found in olive oil have been proven to reduce heart disease, high blood pressure and the risk of strokes. It’s also a natural anti-inflammatory, that can even reduce the risk of cancer. Using olive oil in, for example, salad dressing can leave you feeling fuller and more satisfied too!

Eggs is eggs

Quick, easy, tasty and versatile, eggs are high in protein and can help build lean muscle mass, boosting your metabolism and reducing fat storage. Combining them with something high in fiber like crispbread or wholemeal toast makes for a healthy and satisfying breakfast that will reduce your risk of cravings and help you to resist the temptation of waistline-expanding sugary or salty snacks.

Get your finger on the pulses

Beans, peas and lentils are an essential protein source, especially for vegetarians and vegans. They are also high in fiber and fortified with minerals and B vitamins (essential for all of your body’s maintenance). They also aid your nervous and muscular systems to keep you feel full and avoid bloating.

  1. Great post. I don’t know why people like to pop pills when there’s so many more tastier ways of losing weight, like you’ve rightly pointed out 😉

  2. Thank you for posting this, Ula! My husband and I mildly goal set to be healthy. I’m portion-controlling or doing my best to these days, and that’s helping me. But I know we are what we eat. And my husband’s excuse is that healthy foods (like nuts, for example) are too expensive, and while we are quite money conscious these days because we have to be, it’s not a good excuse. Also, he has discovered that greek yogurt, as you say, can be substituted for mayo in like home made chicken salad – you can’t tell the difference! And it’s good. 🙂

  3. Nice again, fortunately we’re human beings and our mind is essential, Mother Nature is wise and we could be found all ingredients and no pills.
    Unfortunately mass media where celebrities talking about magnificent detox juice and pills as famous chefs in commercials…
    We must be strongest no pills until we must be taking this.

  4. I believe eating a plant-based diet is THE way to lose weight and become healthier!!! I lost 20 lbs (126 to 106) eating tons of plants and I wasn’t out to loose weight. I just wanted to stop eating animals! The weight literally melted off of me, I was not trying, which was sooo cool! I feel amazing! My roommate went vegan and lost 30 lbs in 6 months and my son lost 25 lbs….. just from pigging out on plants! This is a much healthier way to loose weight than swallowing pills! You don’t have to count calories or anything, you just eat lots of plants, vegys, fruit, rice, pasta, potatoes….. mmmmm ….. And it makes you feel soo good!
