5 Foods That Help You Lose Weight

I know, you’re thinking, these foods better taste good. Surprisingly, they’re not bad. The human body is a vast, devious hard glutton-filled global empire of hungry monsters, and often they enjoy junk food. Why do we enjoy junk food—because it’s good, duh? However, there’s plenty of good food that tastes good and can help you lose weight.

1)    Salmon!

Darn right. Do I need to call the health police on you? Keep your sugar hooks off that chocolate and take a taste of salmon. Yummy. Can you feel that high quality protein circulating down your esophagus? What about those healthy fats, important nutrients and a healthy dose of iodine? You don’t know what iodine is? I am calling the health police. Iodine is a trace mineral and a nutrient found naturally in the body. It’s also needed for cells to convert food into energy. We lovely people need iodine for normal thyroid function and production of thyroid hormones. Salmon also contains Omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to help reduce inflammation, which is known to play a major role in obesity and metabolic disease

2)    Lean Beef & Chicken Breast

Yeah, now we’re talking. This one is for all you meatheads, we know you are very smart about what you consume and take each blog note to heart so here’s the deal. Beef and chicken contains that scrumptious fulfilling nutrient labeled protein, which is the most fulfilling nutrient. When you chow on a high-protein diet, you can burn up to 80 to 100 more calories per day. By bringing protein into your life, you can cut evening snacking by sixty percent, which can cause weight loss around a pound a week. Ooh eee. (Thank me later.)

3)    Fruit Diet

If all else fails, turn to fruit. We all know it's one of the healthiest snacks and they're pretty delicious. A fruitarian diet is a strict form of a vegetarian diet that is generally limited to eating fresh fruits. Even the stinking United States Department of Agriculture recommends that fruit should be in our daily meal planning for weight loss goals. Of course with every diet, there are risks, so please consult a doctor before beginning a diet. 

4)    Vegan Weight Loss

Did you know that vegans even have a food pyramid? A lot of healthy stuff as far as I can see. The first floors loaded with fruit and veggies. The second floors stuffed with whole grains, while the first and second floor has fortified dairy and beans and seeds and treats (use sparingly). Remember whole grains are a healthy complex carbohydrate that helps keep blood sugar well-balanced to create weight loss. 

5)    Tuna

Say what? Wait, I kind of knew that. Tuna is another low-calorie, high-protein food. It is indeed a lean fish, so that means there isn’t much fat in it (good news for you). Tuna is popular among bodybuilders and fitness models who like to look beautiful like my new red heels (they wish). Only try this tuna stuff if you want to encourage weight loss, keep calories low and fat to a minimum.

See I told you this health stuff was not so bad. Try out a few of these healthy food items and see how it goes. We promise it won't be as bad as you might think. If you're trying to lose weight, just stick by Atlantic Health Solution's blog. We're always here to make sure you know your options!
