List Of Superfoods
What’s up? Welcome to Losing Weight With Pat. Today, we will be discussing Superfoods. We want to find out what Superfoods are great for you when trying to lose weight. there are tons to choose from. Start off with these 6 that will help you accomplish your weight loss goals.
I have always love to eat. So looking for good foods is not easy. There is so much junk food. that’s what makes it hard. Just follow me and I’ll make it easy for you.
Here are the 6 Superfoods you should be stocking up on:
Apples are rich in antioxidants and phytonutrients. These fight free radicals. A study of women in the age of 30-50 was randomly given one of three dietary supplements. They added 3 apples per day, 3 pears, and 3 oatmeal cookies. The group that ate apples lost a pound more than the oat group. A pound doesn’t sound like much. compared to rest of the foods on the last, that pound quickly added up to a larger amount of weight loss.
Some people go on an apple diet. this diet is not perfect, but it seems to go well when slimming down. this is called the 3-day apple diet.
This is a 3-day diet that cleanses for body detox. It decreases your calorie intake while acting as a colon cleanse. Just eat nothing but apples for 3 days. So you can flush out your system while losing weight.
Amount per serving 1 medium apple: Calories 95, total fat 0.3 grams, dietary fiber 4.4 grams, sugar 19 grams. protein 0.5 grams ( Vitamin A 1%, Vitamin C 14%, Calcium 1%, Iron 1%, Vitamin B-6 5%, Magnesium 2%)
These are some of the nutritional information for apples these are based on a 2,000 calorie diet.
Make today the day you start eating apples.
Oats is the next Superfood that I want to discuss. Oats are rich in fiber. A serving can help you stay full throughout the day. Oats have 4.6 grams of resistant starch in just a half of cup. That is a healthy can that boosts metabolism and burns fat.
Oats is a healthy diet for meant reasons. you can afford them because they are cheap. they are endlessly customizable. Oats are packed with nutrients like healthy carbs and fiber. they are a great option when losing weight. The way you serve the oats will have a big impact on their weight-loss-benefit.
Amount per serving: 1 cup, calories 607, total fat 11 grams, saturated fat 1.9 grams, sodium 3 milligrams, dietary fiber17 grams, protein 26 grams (calcium 8%, Iron 41%, Vitamin b-6 10%, Magnesium 69%).
Besides losing weight, look at the iron. you will get what you need the calories are high so you will stay fuller longer.
I have always believed that fish is a great alternative to eating meat. Besides keeping your heart healthy, fish can shrink your waist. With the Omega-3 fatty acid will improve insulin sensitivity, which helps build muscle and decrease belly fat. The more muscle you have, the more calories your body will burn.
Plus, wild salmon will contain fewer pollutants.
Being a lean protein wild salmon fits nicely in a healthy diet. By replacing fatty red meat and junk food, eating this fish will reduce your calorie intake. Eventually, will help with weight loss. so, if you find yourself eating more calories throughout the day, eat wild salmon for dinner.
Amount per serving: half fillet, calories 280, total fat 12.5 grams (saturated 1.9 grams), protein 39.2 grams (vitamin A 1%, Vitamin B-6 1.5 milligram, Folate 44.7 microgram)
These are just some of the nutritional information found in Wild Salmon. Eat fish to replace red meat. You will be glad you did.
Banana is another great Superfood. Besides fighting depression and feelings of nausea to stabilizing blood sugar levels between meals, bananas are one powerful and great fruit. You can eat a banana for a snack and/or lunch. Bananas are great because it will hold you over until your next meal.
Research have shown that bananas can be a perfect fit in your weight loss diet plan. Single bananas have 108 calories. Bananas are also loaded with fiber, vitamins, and minerals. They also have pectin, which leaves you feeling fuller for a longer time. Having low glycemic index, that helps in weight loss.
Amount per serving: 1 medium banana, calories 110, calories from fat 0, total fat 0 grams, total carbohydrate 30 grams, dietary fiber 3 grams, sugars 19 grams, protein 1 gram (vitamin A 2%, vitamin C 15%, Iron 2%).
The next time you want a snack, turn to a banana or two.
Broccoli is another great superfood. I was not too crazy about Broccoli when I was a kid. But what kid does like it. HAHAHAHAHA. But your mother was right when she said to eat your Broccoli. Eat it a few times a week. You will cut down on your calories and promote your overall health.
You can just keep it easy. Put it in a salad. You can steam it as a side dish or use it in a stir-fry.
Rich in vitamins A, C, and K, broccoli can help you lose weight. It’s low in calories and if you eat it in the morning for breakfast, you can start your day with a fuller meal. Just a cup of broccoli weighs 6 ounces and only have 54 calories.
So, start your day with broccoli. You will fill well too.
Amount per serving: 1 cup chopped, Total fat 0.3 grams, Omega-3 fatty acids 19.1 miligrams, protein 2.6 grams (Vitamin A 11%, vitamin C 135%, vitamin K 116%, folate 14%).
This is just some of the nutritional information on Broccoli. So stock up and start snacking on this instead of candy or chips.
Here is the last superfood I will discuss. Who would believe that Kidney Beans could be a superfood? But, guess what? It is. Kidney beans or one of the beans that are the best for weight loss, along with black and white beans. Vegetarians consider Kidney beans as a hearty meat substitute.
Don’t worry about high cholesterol. Thanks to their iron, protein potassium, and magnesium content, you don’t have to worry about high cholesterol.
Kidney beans have a good source of protein. Protein is more filling than either carbohydrates or fat. Because of this, Kidney beans may help you eat fewer calories throughout the day, which will help you with weight loss.
Serving size: 1 cup, calories 225, fat 0.9 grams (saturated 0.13 grams), fiber 11.3 grams, sugars 0.6 grams, protein 15.3 grams (vitamin C 2%, vitamin K 12%, vitamin B1 24%, vitamin B2 8%, folate 58%, calcium 6%, Iron 49%)
Eat Kidney beans. Besides being healthy, they taste great.
