This is a list of weight loss recipes to help you reduce the time you spend trying to think of the kind of food to feed yourself and your family.
All the foods we eat are not equal and some of them have the undesirable effect of making us add weight and others, like the ones you will see in the post below, have the very opposite effect.
You are reading this because you want to slim down and maybe without doing the painful, stressful and rigorous activities like exercising.
Although I will always recommend exercising to anybody that asks; this list of weight loss recipes is mostly for the lazy ones as sometimes I am guilty of.
I is also a good way to Start Your Diet Today and lose excess fat.
These are 20 weight loss recipes supported by science:
1. Boiled Potatoes
I try to eat boiled potatoes every week with eggs (which is a part of this list as you will see as you read on).
But some people have stopped eating it for some reason. Even my family don’t like to eat it that often.
Even with that, they have some properties that make them great for your health and also to aid weight loss.
Many people have lived on only potatoes for a long period of time and they were healthy; which means potatoes have almost all the nutrients we need in our body.
Potatoes also help in weight loss tremendously by making you feel full and not eat more foods instead.
They contained a balanced amount of healthy fats, protein and also fiber which makes them an excellent snack.
You can eat nuts through anything unlike some other foods that you have to give your full attention. (I’m talking about lobsters).
Eating nuts causes weight loss and also improves your metabolic health according to studies.
People who eat nuts very well tend to be slimmer and healthier than the people who don’t.
Don’t go overboard with eating nuts as the oil in it can cause pimples on your face and it is somewhat high in calories.
Almost all the medical experts in the world have agreed that fruit is healthy.
Many studies on various populations have shown that people who tend to eat more fruits are usually healthier than those who don’t.
I don’t think so.
What does this then say about eating fruits?
It says that fruits have properties that make them health and weight-loss friendly and you should try to have a healthy amount of fruits in your daily diet.
They also contain sugar but because of their low energy density, because it takes a while to chew and because of the fiber in them, the sugar is prevented from entering into the bloodstream too quickly, according to heathline.
The only people not allowed to eat some certain fruits are the diabetics because of the sugar, but the rest of us can eat as much as we want.
Start eating fruits from today and notice how your health will improve.
Vegetables, especially the cruciferous ones like broccoli have been known to have cancer-preventing powers when eaten raw or cooked.
And because of its 30 calories per serving, it also prevents weight gain and aids in weight loss.
Other vegetables you can eat include Spinach, Kale, collards, and others which are low in both carbohydrates and calories, but jam-packed with fiber.
And no matter how much vegetables you eat, you can never grow fat.
This is also technically a vegetable but I wanted to add it here as I eat it all the time when making sandwiches.
Cabbage has lots of vitamin C and is also rich in antioxidants; but has low calories. This means that you can fill your plate with lots and lots of cabbages without feeling like you’re cheating on your weight loss diet.
These are very high in fiber content and water also which can make you feel like you have eaten to your full capacity.
It is a great way to trick your stomach into thinking you are full.
In a study in the University of Arkansas, it has been shown that roasting your carrots before eating them have 3 times more antioxidants than the raw ones.
So try roasting your carrots before eating them if you have the time!
7. Chilli Peppers
Sass has said that the effect chilli peppers has on your metabolism is very real and they contain a chemical compound known as capsaicin that makes the body burn fat fast.
They are also a good source of vitamin C.
8. Coconut Oil
Right now coconut oil is very popular as I have heard so many people talk about it.
It can be used to fry as a substitute for olive oil and also it can be used to dress salads.
This heart friendly oil can also be used a good beauty regimen as it a natural moisturizer for skin and hair.
Coconut oil fills you up quickly which helps you eat fewer foods and makes you lose weight in the process.
The caffeine contained in coffee can speed up your metabolism which helps you to burn more calories.
People who drink caffeinated coffee had their metabolic rates 16% higher than those that drank only decaffeinated coffee, according to Physiology and Behaviour.
You can also eat your coffee and use it to exfoliate your skin.
Eggs are loaded with protein, which helps to manage your appetite although they are weight loss foods.
Egg whites are a good source of amino acids that helps your metabolism to work smoothly without any hiccup.
Women that eat eggs in the morning lose weight more than women that eat bagels in the morning. (I know, the comparison is not fair… right?)
11. Dark Chocolate
When one hears chocolate you immediately categorize it into one of the unhealthy foods out there that will make you fat and slow.
But the dark chocolate is different.
Dark chocolate helps curb your cravings for sweet and sugary foods.
12. Green Tea
Green tea speeds up your metabolism.
It is filled with antioxidants that fights inflammations in your body, burn fats and also increases your energy.
Drinking five cups in one day can help you lose weight twice as much in your middle area. You know…. your waistline, according to a study.
It also reduces the risk of cancer, Parkinson’s disease, skin, and ovarian cancer.
13. Lean Proteins
If you don’t eat proteins, it will be very difficult for you to lose weight.
Eating too little protein can make you to have excess body fats that will be difficult to shake off.
Eating small amounts of protein daily also helps improve your body strength.
Eat lean proteins like lean ground beef, pork loin, turkey and chicken.
These are a wonderful source of boosting metabolism.
They perform wonders for your waistline when they are cooked.
Eating oatmeal in the morning will make you feel less hungry during the day, which makes you eat less food, which in turn makes you lose weight naturally.
They are a great source of resistant starch and they are the bigger cousins of bananas.
You can eat plantains in the morning with eggs as they help you feel full throughout the day which makes you lose weight because you eat less food.
16. Red Wine
Drinking red wine, not more than one glass a day, can be part of a healthy diet because of an antioxidant found in grape skin.
People who drink wine have smaller waistline and stomach fat than those who just drink alcohol/liquor.
The antioxidant found in wine helps you to reduce the risk of cancer and also improve your heart health.
There are many great reasons to drink water, at least 2 litres in a day.
Sometimes your body mistake thirst for hunger because the symptoms of hunger is somewhat similar to thirst.
Drink enough water to stay slim.
Beans contain resistant starch. They are also high in protein and fiber and because of the high fiber, it makes you feel like you are full fast.
They are also good for your heart as they are loaded with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that benefit your brain and muscles also.
I currently still don’t understand it yet but it has been said that popcorn also helps you to lose weight. (This is because I mainly have movie popcorn which is loaded with butter and sugar.)
But popcorn is a filling snack that has lots of fiber in it.
Yogurt is a satisfying snack because it is thick and creamy and contains 17 grams of protein; which is 3 times more than that of an egg.
The acids that were produced during the process of fermentation also help you feel full fast.
