Introduction:

Foods with a high water content, a high fiber content, or a high nutrient volume is the best for weight loss.

In addition to just being calorie-free, water and fiber help stretch your stomach so your brain knows you're full.

Good bacteria feed on fiber, or prebiotics, in the gut. Votre bonne bactérie favorise un poids santé et vous incite à manger des aliments santé. You crave sugar and unhealthy fats when you have bad bacteria. They compete with your good bacteria for space.

These foods have high levels of vitamins and minerals relative to their calorie content. Nutrient deficiencies that cause overeating can be corrected with these foods, which don't add extra calories. Some people believe that healthy foods are tasteless and boring — but nothing could be further from the truth.


#1 Blueberries

Raspberry ketone extracts are becoming popular, but there aren’t any human studies showing they are effective. Why not eat fresh raspberries for the flavor and the ketones?

Fresh raspberries are perfect for oatmeal, salads, or a healthy snack.

But frozen raspberries last longer and are ideal for smoothies. Studies show that freezing foods preserve the nutrients of foods as good or better than storing fresh.

Special Note: Blueberries, strawberries, and blackberries offer similar low-calorie sweetness and have their own unique blend of nutrients.

The miracle berry contains a molecule called miraculin which binds to receptors on your taste buds. When eaten, it causes sour foods to taste sweet for a short period.

At a low pH, miraculin binds proteins that activate sweet receptors. Your tongue perceives sour (acidic) food as sweet until this protein is washed away (about 30 minutes).

Greens and vegetables are slightly sour, or acidic. Chew a miracle berry at the tip of your tongue for 30 seconds. Then all the healthy greens and vegetables you eat for about 30 minutes will taste sweet!

Sea vegetables, or seaweed, are some of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet.

Each type of sea vegetable has a unique set of nutrients that support healthy weight loss. Some are rich in fiber, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, protein, and iodine.

In addition to protein, spirulina is a good source of fiber and vitamins, as well as minerals. Nori, wakame, and kombu are rich in iodine, which is essential for thyroid function (Nori: 25 percent RDI, wakame: 93 percent RDI, and kombu: 1682 percent RDI). Thyroid hormones regulate growth and energy production. Iodine supports your thyroid gland.

An anti-oxidant called fucoxanthin, found in wakame, has 13.5 times the antioxidant power of Vitamin E. In addition, fucoxanthin can help regulate blood sugar.

25–75 percent of the fiber in sea vegetables comes from dietary fiber, which is higher than that of most fruits.

Special Note:  Also, they contain a rare sugar called sulfated polysaccharides, which helps to maintain a healthy gut flora environment. Because sea vegetables are so nutrient-dense, you only need a small amount, especially those with high iodine content. Be careful, as too much iodine can damage your thyroid.


#16  Cheese 

One of the most delicious foods, according to many among, is cheese.

It's highly nutritious — rich in calcium, vitamin B12, phosphorus, selenium, and zinc, among other vitamins and minerals.

Quinoa is a complete vegan protein unicorn because it has significant amounts of all nine essential amino acids.

Quinoa contains 8 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber per cup, more than most grains. High protein can help boost your metabolism, and both fiber and protein can help you feel fuller.

Because quinoa is a pseudo-cereal, a seed that’s prepared and eaten as a grain, it’s gluten-free.

Surprisingly, almost a third of the US population is trying to reduce or avoid gluten. And about 5% of the US population is vegan or vegetarian. Lastly, about half of the US population is trying to lose weight!

Special Note:  The best part is quinoa tastes good and goes with almost anything. Check out these vegan quinoa recipes are at Healthier Steps for inspiration.


#18 Flaxseed

As a source of fiber, protein, omega-3 fatty acids, minerals, and lignans, flaxseed is a great choice.

Researchers are still trying to figure out the benefits of lignans, but they have made some progress. They may also help to lower blood pressure and support weight loss, according to some researchers.

45 studies show that flaxseed can help you lose 2.2 pounds and a third of an inch from your waistline. Zwei der Studien found that participants lost an average of 20 pounds.

Special Note: Flaxseed meal must be ground or purchased ground for it to be absorbed. As a flour alternative, flaxseed is a good choice for baking. It is also an easy ingredient to add to smoothie recipes or soup and salads.


#19  Lentils

Lentils have a secret weight-loss weapon.

YES, lentils are a great source of fiber and vegan protein, as well as minerals and vitamins. Lentils can help lower blood pressure, prevent cancer, manage blood sugar and support weight loss, according to studies conducted.

The second meal effect is the superpower of lentils. Beans are a good source of resistant starch, which is resistant to digestion in the small intestine. When combined with the good bacteria in your gut, resistant starch has a similar effect as fiber.

So eating lentils and beans helps you feel full even the next day.

Beans need to be cooked before eating. And unfortunately, heating can destroy most resistant starches. But you can “recapture” the resistant starch by allowing it to cool.

Other beans and legumes that can help you lose weight are chickpeas, peas, kidney beans, black beans, soybeans, pinto beans, and navy beans.

Special Note: More healthy sources of resistant starch are oats, rice, beans, potatoes, and green bananas.


Peanut butter is a great source of unsaturated fatty acids, protein, and fiber.

In addition to vitamins and minerals, avocados are a good source of copper and manganese. Vitamins E, phosphorus, and magnesium round out the list.

Even some fruits can't compete with the anti-oxidant power of peanuts!

As a result, despite their high fat and calorie content, they are not associated with weight gain. These foods are linked to a lower risk of obesity.

A few people, however, find it difficult to resist the temptation to eat too much peanut butter at once. To avoid excessive calorie intake, try to moderate your portions. If you tend to eat peanut butter in large quantities, it may be best to stay away from the stuff.

Also, be sure to choose varieties without added sugar or oils. The ingredient list should only include peanuts and a small amount of salt. Try adding some peanut butter on top of apple slices, celery, or a banana for a tasty snack.

Special Note:  Peanut butter is rich in healthy fats, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. It’s very filling and may prevent weight gain when eaten in moderation.


#21 Popcorn

The fact that popcorn is a whole grain is not widely known.

In terms of calories and fiber, it's relatively low.

In addition to improved digestion, whole grains may also reduce the risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

Weight loss and maintenance may also be aided by these products.

Unhealthy popcorn varieties loaded with refined oils should be avoided.

In a pan or air-popped, popcorn is healthiest. If you want to change up the flavor, try adding some salt, butter, chocolate sprinkles, or cinnamon.

Special Note: Popcorn is a high-fiber whole grain and relatively low in calories. It may improve digestion and reduce your risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes.


#22 Sweet Potato

In regards to being high in fiber and nutrient content, sweet potatoes are also deliciously sweet.

As well as being a great source of vitamin A (from beta-carotene), they also contain a good amount of vitamin C and other nutrients.

Sweet potatoes also contain several antioxidants and may reduce oxidative damage, potentially reducing your risk of cancer. One white variety may also help moderate blood sugar levels

Sweet potatoes taste great whether they're boiled, baked, or fried. They're especially delicious with some sour cream or salted butter on top.

Special Note: Sweet potatoes are very nutritious and rich in fiber, antioxidants, and vitamins A and C. They may reduce oxidative damage, potentially reducing your risk of cancer.


#23 Arugula

Arugula is a lesser-known cruciferous vegetable with similar benefits to broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and Kale.

Arugula ranks among the top 10 foods on the Aggregate Nutrient Density Index (ANDI score). The ANDI score measures a food’s vitamin, mineral, and phytonutrient content relative to its caloric content. The higher the score, the better.

Kale, mustard greens, and collards are all tied for the highest ANDI score of 1,000.

Arugula is also rich in nitrates which increases nitric oxide production. Nitric oxide increases blood flow, lowers blood pressure, and improves athletic performance.

Other good sources of nitrates are beets, garlic, dark chocolate, spinach, and kale (again).

Not only can arugula provide vital nutrients with very few calories and help you exercise longer, but it can also help prevent cancer and diabetes.

Special Note:  Arugula has a unique tangy taste, so what healthy and tasty food can you eat with it?


#24 Carob

Carob is a sweet and healthy alternative to dark chocolate.

Compared to cocoa, carob has more fiber, less fat and sugar, and no caffeine, and tastes sweeter. Because carob is naturally sweet and has little sugar, it’s a healthy way to satisfy sugar cravings.

Like cocoa, carob is a good source of polyphenols and other antioxidants. But carob has twice the amount of calcium as cocoa.

The unique tannins in the carob can help remove toxins from your body and prevent unhealthy bacterial growth in your intestines. Unhealthy bacteria make you crave unhealthy and unremoved toxins that are stored as fat.

Special Note:  Carob can help you replace unhealthy sweets from your diet without feeling deprived. You can use carob powder in your smoothies or carob chips in your baking.


#25 Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar can help you burn fat and feed your good bacteria.

It activates an enzyme called AMPK which speeds up your metabolism and signals your body to stop storing fat and start burning fat.

Apple cider vinegar is also rich in polyphenols that support your healthy gut bacteria.

Special Note: In one study, overweight participants who took two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar per day for 12 weeks lost five pounds. They also lost an inch off their waist size.

What about a drink that tastes good and helps you lose weight?


#26 Yoghurt

Yogurt is a fermented dairy product that’s both delicious and healthy.

It is rich in high-quality proteins and fats, as well as calcium and several vitamins.

Both improved bone health and reduced blood pressure have been associated with eating yogurt

As a result of the presence of beneficial bacteria, certain types of yogurt — marketed as probiotic yogurts — contains active cultures.

Several health benefits are associated with these probiotic bacteria, including the improved cholesterol, improved immunity, and digestion as well as improved B and K vitamin synthesis in the digestive tract.

Yogurts that are loaded with added sugar should be avoided. Instead, buy natural yogurt and add fruit, berries, or muesli for more flavor and a crunchy texture.

Special Note: Yogurt is high in protein and calcium. It may improve bone health and blood pressure. Probiotic varieties may enhance your immune system and promote the synthesis of B and K vitamins in your digestive system.

In terms of antioxidants, light roast coffee has a slight advantage, but dark roast coffee is better for reducing body fat.

We asked participants to drink two cups of coffee a day for a month. A single green coffee bean was used for both light and dark roasts.

Those who drank dark roast and were overweight lost about six pounds more than those who drank light roast.

If you're trying to shed some pounds, how can drinking coffee help?

Special Note:  Caféine can help you burn more calories and boost your metabolism. As a result, you consume fewer calories.


Capsaicin is found in many chili peppers, including cayenne, habaneros, or jalapenos.

In addition to boosting your metabolism, relieving pain, and supporting your good bacteria, capsaicin can also help you lose weight by making you feel more satisfied and by boosting your metabolism.

Special Note: In a study of 36 participants, 2.56 mg of capsaicin per meal was found to promote fat oxidation by boosting metabolism, according to the findings.


#29 Oolong Tea, Green Tea, and Black Tea

Oolong tea may offer the best of both green and black tea.

Oolong tea, green tea, and black tea are traditional Chinese teas made from the Camellia sinensis plant. The difference between them is how long they are allowed to oxidize.

Green tea undergoes minimal oxidation, black tea is oxidized until it turns black, and oolong is oxidized somewhere in the middle.

Green tea is rich in catechins, antioxidants that can increase your metabolism and fat burning. Put 60 obese people on a standardized diet while drinking green tea or a placebo for 12 weeks. Those who drank green tea lost 7.3 pounds more than the placebo group.

Black tea is rich in flavonoids, which may be responsible for the weight loss benefits of black tea.

One study of 111 people found that drinking three cups of black tea per day over three months stopped weight gain and reduced waist size.

Similar to green tea and black tea, oolong tea can boost metabolism and reduce body weight.

For instance, one study found that oolong tea can increase metabolism between 2.9 and 3.4%, or the equivalent of 281 and 331 calories per day.

Special Note:  Oolong tea may also improve fat metabolism. For example, another study had 102 overweight or obese people drink oolong tea for six weeks. Researchers found that oolong tea can help reduce body weight and fat. Similar teas are Puerh, Earl Grey, English breakfast, and white tea.


What do you think, should I take diet pills?

Diet pills provide little short-term weight loss, according to studies. In the long run, the weight will return.

No "slimming supplement" was found to be more effective than a placebo, according to a study.

Healthy Foods that Taste - Prosper Diet Program



Is it because they don't work with time? For the time being, the side effects are too unpleasant to continue taking the medication.

If you want to get quick results from a weight loss supplement, you'll need a drug or supplement that will help you do that.

Be cautious.

Even the “natural” supplement industry isn’t regulated by the FDA. And a supplement may not be removed from the market unless it causes problems.

What about FDA-approved drugs?

If a drug is approved by the FDA it doesn’t mean it’s safe. The FDA approves drugs that appear safe in the short-term, but have serious side effects in the long term.

The FDA will remove a drug when its risks outweigh its benefits. By the time the FDA removes a drug the harm is done and millions of dollars are made selling it.


To take or not to take - that is the question?

For healthy weight loss, you now have a long list of foods and supplements to consider.

Also, they have almost no side effects and cost a fraction of the cost of diet pills.

Foods that won't leave you feeling deprived or empty. With every bite, they can sweeten or spice up your life.
