Everyone knows you have to eat right and work hard in the gym to get in shape. But, there are certain foods that are not only healthy but also effective in helping you lose weight.
You can help boost your metabolism by eating breakfast and loading it with foods like whole grain cereals and oats. The complex carbohydrates and fiber help keep you feeling full so you eat less and they help your regularity so you can get in the waste out of your system in a normal fashion. A glass of milk also is advised. Milk will provide protein, especially some case in protein, which will stay in your system longer and keep you nourished longer.
You should also incorporate peppers into your diet. Hot peppers and spices can heat up your body and speed your heart rate. As a result, your body will have to burn more calories to keep up with the heat production. You can do this simply by snacking on foods with red pepper spices or by including peppers like jalapenos or cayenne into your regular food and meals.
Another thing you can do is drink, or in many cases, keep drinking coffee and green tea. Both will make you burn more calories. Caffeine in coffee raises your heart rate and the ingredient EGCG in green tea will speed your brain function, both burning more calories throughout the day.
You should also consume foods with lean protein. Protein is difficult for the body to digest. So the more you eat, the more your body has to work to process it, and the more calories your body runs through to digest the protein. Options for lean protein range from lean chicken and turkey as many people already eat, to lean pork and beef, which some stay away from due to their fat content.
Eating foods with omega 3 is also beneficial. Adding some fish oils and fatty acids from fish, most kinds are good like salmon, cod, and tuna, boosts the omega 3 intake and helps emulsify fat in the body. Fish oils are good for joints, brain health, and skin health too.
The best diet would be one that would incorporate all of these food types.
