Obesity - Eat and Lose your Weight

plums You can eat and at the same time lose weight All of us, who are obese, believe the only way to lose weight is by not eating at all. A new research shows it is not true. You can eat and also shed that extra pound.

There are a large number of foods from beans to beef that can help you satisfy your craving for food, increase your metabolism and ultimately reduce your weight. You can now eat and lose weight.

Eggs: Eggs are full of protein and help you feel full for a longer time. They also prevent blood sugar increase, thereby reduces food cravings.

Fibre Food Beans: Get back to green diet. Eating beans increases cholecystokinin, a digestive hormone and a natural appetite suppressant. There is also evidence that beans keep blood sugar in check. So you can keep hunger pangs at bay for longer.

Salad: Control your calorie intake by starting with a large salad without the creamy mayonnaise dressing. A large serving of salad can keep you full as it contains high levels of vitamins C and E, folic acid, lycopene, and carotenoids.

Soup: A cup of chicken soup is as good as eating a piece of chicken. Even the simplest soup satisfies hunger pangs because your brain perceives it as filling.

Pears: These contain pectin fibre, which decrease blood-sugar levels, thus helping you to avoid in-between snacking.

Green Tea: Antioxidants called catechins are what help speed metabolism and fat burning. Green tea also boosts the metabolism and lowers bad LDL cholesterol.

Lean Beef: If you are trying to reduce weight there is no need to keep totally off meat. The amino acid leucine, which is abundant in meat and fish as well as in dairy products, can help you reduce weight while maintaining calorie-burning muscles.

Olive oil: Fight off that middle-age bulge with extra virgin olive oil. A mono unsaturated fat it will help you burn calories.

Cinnamon: Sprinkle it on oat-meal or whole-grain toast to help cure those mid-afternoon-sugar-slumps. Research has found that a little cinnamon can help control post-meal insulin spikes, which make you feel hungry.

Nuts: Yes, nuts are fattening but research shows that people who snack on nuts tend to be slimmer than those who don't. They help by revving up the metabolism. Plus, certain nuts like walnuts contain omega-3 fatty acis, which are essential for good health.

Don't go hungry for the fear of increasing your weight and becoming obese. Select the right foods and eat to your heart's content.

"Eat to Live" by Joel Fuhrman. With so many books around in the market you are generally not enthusiastic about the recommendations and diets given in them. But I found this book to be different. This is a book about which there have been a lot of favourable reviews. Many of the reviewers who had bought it say they were sceptical about what the book recommended. But, after reading it and following what was suggested they have gained a lot of benefits and lost weight.

I bought this books based on these reviews. I found it to be useful. This book provided the answers to all the doubts I had about the innumerable popular diet programs. The advice given in the books are very practical. Diet plans recommended in this books include both raw food and all other types of food also. I have decided to continue using this healthy eating plan for the rest of my life. The best thing about this book is all that the author says is supported by research.
