Best Weight Loss Foods
The choices you make when deciding on which foods to eat can have the biggest impact on your fat loss results.
Good choices for lean protein sources include skinless, boneless chicken breasts, lean ostrich, grilled fish as well as lean cuts of beef. If you are a vegetarian, there are also some protein options that are meat free, such as tofu, egg whites or dairy products like low fat or fat free, plain cottage cheese that you can consume.
When cooking up your meals, remember that the cooking method you choose can add fat onto a non-fat meal. So, be smart and grill your meat instead of frying it and avoid using oil as much as possible, especially sun flower oil. Use a non-stick pan spray instead that is lower in fat and calories and is just as effective as oil for cooking.
Good choices for complex carbs include sweet potatoes, whole-wheat pasta, brown rice, millet and oat bran. Try to avoid pre-packaged carbs such as biscuits and crackers and remember, if they come in a box, they are packed in empty calories that you donít need.
Avoid "white" starches such as white rice, white potatoes and pasta as these have been stripped of their nutritional values and rank higher on the glycemic index. This means that they will spike your insulin levels and provide you with energy in one quick go, which, if you do not burn straight away will ultimately get stored as fat.
Good choices for vegetables include green, leafy veggies such as spinach, lettuce, broccoli and cauliflower. Patty pans are also good options as is tomato, cucumber and celery.
Invest in a low fat, low calorie cookbook to help you create new and exciting meals and remember that just because a certain meal is healthy, doesn't mean it has to be bland and boring. Use spices and interesting food combinations to create delicious meals that will tempt your taste buds.
