10 Foods to Eat MORE Of to Lose Weight

foods to eat to lose weightWe’d all love to fill up our plates to the brim, chow down, then sit back, unbutton our pants and watch our jiggly thighs and flabby tummies melt away.

There are even those fans of the “negative calorie” food theory, who say munching on celery and citrus fruits will take your body so much energy to digest that you’ll be trim and fit in no time flat (this isn’t actually true, by the way).

Really, is it ever true that you can actually lose weight by eating more?

If you know which foods to eat to lose weight, yes, it actually is.

Eat These 10 Foods if You Want to Lose Weight

Capsaicin, the compound that gives chili peppers their heat, inhibit the accumulation of body fat, curb appetite and boost your metabolism.[i]

9. Vegetable Purees

By adding pureed vegetables to your favorite meals, you can eat the same amount you usually would, feel just as satisfied, but actually consume 350 fewer calories.[ii] It’s a great idea whether you’re trying to lose weight or sneak more veggies into your (or your kid’s) diet, as this tactic also increases your veggie intake by a couple of servings a day. For starters, try adding pureed squash to your pasta, pureed carrots to your lasagna, or mashed cooked cauliflower to your mashed potatoes.

8. Salad

Don’t roll your eyes … we’re not saying all you can eat is salad. The trick is to eat a large, low-calorie salad before your regular meal. Doing this fills you up, simply because of the volume and fiber involved. People who do this eat about 12 percent less than they normally would, even when offered as much as they want of tempting foods like pasta, Penn State researchers found.

7. Vegetable Soup

Enjoying a bowl of broth-based vegetable soup before your lunch will fill you up similarly to a salad, and research shows will result in your consuming 20 percent fewer calories at your meal (soup included!).[iii]

Eating half a grapefruit before your meal may help you feel fuller, as it’s loaded with fiber, so you ultimately eat less. One study found this simple trick helped people lose three pounds in 12 weeks.

5. Eggs

Eggs are an excellent source of protein, which means they keep you satisfied far longer than a bagel or bowl of cereal ever could. One study found that, compared to those who eat bagels, people who eat two eggs for breakfast lose 65 percent more weight and have higher energy levels.[iv]

4. Nuts

Another protein powerhouse, nuts can actually help you lose weight when you snack on them in lieu of carbs, like a bran muffin. This can significantly reduce your weight, body mass index, waist circumference and body fat.[v] Even just adding nuts to your diet two or more times a week is associated with a lower risk of weight gain![vi]

3. Green Tea

Green tea contains phytochemicals called epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which has been found to help weight loss by increasing metabolism and fat burning, and inhibiting the development of fat cells.[vii]

This traditional spice appears to have a stabilizing effect on your blood sugar levels, which can help to keep your appetite in check. Try adding it to your morning coffee, tea, yogurt or oatmeal to gain this appetite-regulating effect.

    Almost any green veggie will help you shed the pounds. After I stopped playing football and needed to shed pounds I went to a mostly raw veggie lifestyle. The may not taste good but at least you will look good.

    #5 — “those who eat effs fro breakfast lose 65% more weight”. Those who DON’T EAT eggs for breakfast, or anything for that matter, and eat eggs for lunch, the first meal, lose even more weight!!!
    It’s called IF, Intermittent Fasting, you fast anywhere between 8 hours to as long as you wish, preferably more than 12 hrs. Strangely, I had been skipping breakfast as long as I remember, and experts were telling me with condescending arrogance it’s wrong, “breakfast is the most important meal of the day” — BS, it’s a lie (or conceited ignorance).
    I first learned I wasn’t all that stupid, from Sufi masters, who said “wise man eats late….”. Now the progressive nutrition/fitness has all metabolic details how it works. Too complicated for me, but the idea is when you put your metabolism in a catabolic state, by fasting, it starts consuming the stored fat in your body.
