5 Foods To Help You Lose Weight NOW

Losing weight is HARD. It takes time and discipline to change your diet and start knocking weight off. You’ve gotta start somewhere though! Here’s a few simple foods to help you start losing weight today.

Apples & Pears

Not only are they full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals but these delicious, juicy fruits contain as much as 6 grams of fiber per serving which will help keep you feeling fuller longer. They also help re-establish healthy bacteria in the gut and colon which researchers believe helps balance the metabolic process through decreasing inflammation and increasing feelings of satiety. And their sweet taste can help curb cravings for sugar and simple carbohydrates too!

Avocados

Creamy and delicious, avocados are full of anti-inflammatory monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, known as the “good” fats. They are also high in fiber (7g in ½ an avocado) and they increase your absorption of fat-soluble nutrients meaning adding them to a salad or sandwich helps you feel fuller longer.

Eggs

This low calorie food is a great snack option as it packs a protein punch. Eggs are what’s known as a complete protein food, meaning they contain all 9 amino acids your body needs but can’t make on it’s own. Studies have shown that eating eggs in the AM not only stabilizes blood sugar throughout the day but also helps people eat fewer calories as they keep you satisfied and energized longer.

Lentils

These little superfoods throw some serious nutritional weight around. In ¾ of a cup you’re getting 13 grams of protein and 11 grams of fiber helping you stay full for hours. The combination of protein and fiber in this ancient legume has been helping people stay trim and satisfied for thousands of years.

Almonds

Studies show that snacking on almonds can help you stay fuller longer and eat less at meals. Chances are it’s the combination of monounsaturated fat, fiber and protein you’re getting in one little nut. Bonus: they’re also high in Vitamin E, the beauty vitamin, which is essential for healthy skin, hair and nails.
