Best Superfoods for Weight Loss

Superfoods are nutritional powerhouses that help build bones, prevent chronic diseases, improve your eyesight, and even keep your mind sharp. 

But new research shows  they  help you in weight-loss and weight-management.

1. Black beans

  15 grams of satisfying  proteins and zero fats

2.Oats



Oats are rich in fiber, so a serving can help you feel full throughout the day. Just a half cup packs 4.6 grams of Resistant Starch,( a low carb diet)  a healthy carb that boosts metabolism and burns fat. 

3.Avocados

Don’t  afraid of eating fats—as long as they’re the right fats. 

Oleic acid, a compound in avocados’ healthy monounsaturated fats (MUFAs), may trigger your body to actually satisfy  hunger. Only quarter or a half of an avocado is sufficient  to melt away belly fat. The creamy fruit is also packed with fiber and protein. 


4. Salmon








Lean sources of protein help you feel full without adding fat.

Salmon is  a leaner choice than red meat and is chock-full of MUFAs to boot. A 2001 study found that dieters eating a MUFA-rich diet lost an average of 9 pounds, while their low-fat diet counterparts gained, on average 6 pounds. 

5. Blueberries






Excellent  anti-aging effects, blueberries, while tiny, are a powerful figure-friendly. Only 80 calories but  4 grams of fiber in one cup of blueberries.


6. Broccoli




Cooked or raw, this excellent  veggie is well-known for its cancer-preventing powers. It has top class filling fiber with  less than 30 calories a serving and is bound to prevent weight problems too. 


7.Brown rice




Brown rice is a heartier, fiber-packed alternative to less-than-super white rice. A half-cup serving contains 1.7 grams of Resistant Starch, a healthy carb that boosts metabolism and burns fat. 


Plus, brown rice is a low-energy-density food, meaning it’s heavy and filling but low in calories. Women who ate a higher-energy-density diet gained three times as much weight over six years than women eating a low-energy-density diet. 


8.Pears



One pear packs 15% of your daily recommended amount of fiber. One study found that women who ate three pears a day consumed fewer calories and lost more weight than those who didn’t. Ditch the peeler though; the skin is where all that filling fiber is hiding! 


9.Wine







Resveratrol, the famed antioxidant found in grape skin, stops fat storage. Studies show that moderate wine drinkers have narrower waists and less belly fat than liquor drinkers. Downing a glass can boost your calorie burn for a good 90 minutes. 










10.Grapefruit



Even if you changed nothing else about your diet, eating half a grapefruit before each meal may help you lose up to a pound a week! 


A compound in the tangy fruit can lower insulin, a fat-storage hormone, and that can lead to weight loss. It’s also a good source of protein, and because it’s at least 90% water, it can fill you up so you eat less.
