Top SUPERFOODS for Weight Loss

Superfoods build bones, prevent chronic diseases, improve your eyesight, and even keep your mind sharp. But did you know new evidence suggests these foods can also help you get—and stay—slim? The list below contains 25 of the best superfoods.

  1. Black Beans:            Contains protein and NO saturated fats
  2. Oats:                        Are rich in fibre and high in resistant starch.
  3. Avocados:                High in protein and fibre and quietens the hunger.
  4. Salmon:                   A lean source of protein with very low fat.
  5. Blueberries:            High in anti-oxidants.
  6. Broccoli:                  High in calcium, Vitamins A and C, folic acid.
  7. Brown Rice:            High in resistant starch, boost metabolism, burns fat.
  8. Pears:                     High in fibre. One pear holds 15% of daily recommended intake.
  9. Wine (red):             Antioxidant stops fat storage. One glass can kickstart the metabolism
  10. Grapefruit:              lowers insulin: a fat storing hormone.
  11. Kidney Beans:        rich in resistant starch, protein and fibre

  19. Potatoes:               Yes they are OK. High in resistant starch.
  20. Pine Nuts:              Have healthy fatty acids that quell hunger.
  21. White Beans:         Fat blasting resistant starch
  22. Cheese:                 Feta and Goat’s cheese are high in fatty acid.
  23. Chickpeas:            More resistant starch + protein and fibre
  24. Pearl Barley:         more fibre and resistant starch
  25. Quinoa:                 Hunger fighting protein

It is all about the metabolism. So what are the best Metabolic Enhancing Foods (MEFs)?

Good Carbs:            non wheat pasta, spelt, oats, quinoa and rice flour

Bad Carbs:               Wholewheat bread, pasta and cereals

Good Fats:               butter, eggs, avocados, nuts, olive oil, coconut oil.

Bad Fats:                  canola, vegetable oil, margarine, fake butter.

More good MEFs:    Steak, sweet potato, salmon, berries, dark chocolate and coconut

Not all carbs are bad for you. Studies show that adding a little Resistant Starch to your morning meal will shift your body into fat-melting mode, so that you burn nearly 25% more calories a day. Meanwhile, you’ll eat about 10% fewer calories—simply because you’re not as hungry (foods containing Resistant Starch are quite filling)—so you end up eating less overall.

And never skip breakfast. Your metabolism slows down to a crawl while you sleep and only awakens when you put some food into your stomach. If you hold off until lunch then you have potentially lost 3-4 hours of fat burning time.

If you are serious about weight loss, then the above is a good place to start. To make sure that the new healthy habit is the permanent habit, maybe a 3 session Weight Release Hypnotherapy program at Cameron Hypnotics would be a great way to be trim and healthy for the festive season.
