5 Foods That Promote Weight Loss August 12, 2019

5 Foods That Promote Weight Loss, Creve Coeur, Missouri

Although fitness plays an essential role in losing and maintaining weight, you can’t out-exercise a bad diet. What you put on your plate and into your mouth has a significant impact on your weight loss results. Medical weight loss programs can kick-start progress by helping you reinvigorate your diet. Here’s a list of five foods with proven weight-loss properties. 

5 Foods to Support Weight Loss

1. Lean Protein

Foods rich in protein help minimize overeating because you’ll feel fuller longer when you consume proteins rather than calories from carbohydrates or other food sources. Moreover, protein supports lean muscle mass and improves metabolism. Some high-protein foods with relatively low calorie counts include salmon, black beans, eggs, and chicken.

2. Cruciferous Vegetables

Cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli, cauliflower, and kale, are low in calories and rich in fiber. Like proteins, they can help you stay full without overindulging. They’re also rich in nutrients that detoxify, protect the brain, and reduce inflammation. It’s no wonder medical weight loss experts recommend all dieters regularly consume these veggies.

3. Full-Fat Dairy

medical weight lossWhile you might think low- fat or nonfat dairy are better for losing weight that full-fat dairy products, many medical weight loss authorities disagree. In fact, research has shown increased consumption of high-fat dairy actually decreases obesity risk, so products like full-fat yogurt and milk may actually help you lose weight and keep it off.

4. Avocado

Avocado, long hailed as a superfood, is rich in healthy fats and has been shown to control appetite when eaten with a meal. Avocados also have cardioprotective, antiobesity, and antidiabetic properties.

5. Coffee

Coffee lovers rejoice! Coffee, which researchers believe has an effect on brown-fat functions, contributes to the rate at which we use calories for energy and improves blood sugar levels.
