Lose Weight With These 5 Filling Foods!

Lose Weight With These 5 Filling Foods

To lose those remaining stubborn pounds, many of us just need to tweak our diets and cut our portion sizes. One secret is to incorporate huge portions of low calorie foods! The following filling foods deliver the goods as far as dietary fiber, powerful protein, and essential nutrients so you get more bang for your bite!

 

  1. Oats…A belly full of oats is a happy belly. Just ask anyone who gobbles down this high fiber breakfast bowl. Oats stall mid-morning snack attacks because they absorb liquid (i.e. water, almond milk, cashew milk) like a sponge – meaning you’ll eat less calories, but feel full until lunchtime. The secret of slow digesting oats is that they take much longer to work their way through the digestive system, which compared to the quick fix you’ll get with most breakfast cereals, stops hunger pangs and regulates blood sugar so you’re satisfied for much longer!

  2. Eggs…You don’t have to be shy when cracking eggs (including yolks) to eat. According to dietary research from Saint Louis University, people who consume eggs for breakfast, eat roughly 330 fewer calories daily compared to those who eat cereal, toast , or bagels for their morning meal. Food scientists dub eggs the “complete protein,” which includes the nine essential amino acids contained within a single egg. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, claims this collection of amino acids is what suppresses the appetite and tells your brain and body that you’ve reached food capacity.

  3. Greek Yogurt…Harvard researchers claim Greek yogurt to be “the single best food for shedding pounds.” During a study that monitored the weight ad dietary habits of 120,000 people over a 20 year period, Greek yogurt was found to balance blood sugar (and curb cravings) and satisfy hungry tummies for longer. In fact, the same study found that those who opted for protein-packed Greek yogurt, shed unwanted, extra pounds without changing any other habits (i.e. diet or exercise). Keep in mind that Greek yogurt contains double the protein and a silver of the sugar compared to any other type of yogurt.

  4. Almonds…It’s difficult to deny that small handful of almonds provides the perfect snack. In fact, a registered dietitian and author of the book Superfoods, credits a snack of about 1-oz of almonds (that’s roughly 22 nuts) with keeping your appetite satisfied. Almonds keep hunger under control and snack attacks at bay with a decent dose of beautifying vitamin E (for glowing skin, shiny hair, and strong nails), healthy monounsaturated fats, protein, and dietary fiber!

  5. Avocado…Are you avoiding avocado because of its high fat reputation? Well, its time to embrace this velvety soft fruit (yes, it’s a fruit!!!) because it contains healthy, plant based fats that help improve cardiovascular health. Avocado is rich in, you got it, dietary fiber, which according to research in the Nutritional Journal, fills you up and prevents hunger cravings, while reducing anti-inflammation in the body and even lowering the risk and pain of arthritis. Keep reading HERE to see how avocados will help you lose weight!

It is my job to spend every single day helping my clients learn to eat healthy, find foods they love, and help most of them see weight loss results. I include all five of these foods in my own daily diet, and highly recommend them to every client who walks through my office door. If you are looking for a meal plan or need help finding filling foods to help you Eat More & Weigh Less, these five foods are a great start!
