The 5 Best Foods For Weight Loss
It’s nothing new or groundbreaking but eggs are one of the best foods for weight loss to have
around when you’re trying to stay on track. Not only are the whites some of the cleanest
protein you can have, but the yolk provides healthy fats and vitamins that can assist you in
your weight loss goals.
So how do I eat my eggs? Pffft more like how do I NOT eat them?
One of my favourite ways to start my day is scrambling up some egg whites and topping
them off with homemade guacamole. All I do is mash up half of an avocado, mix in a pinch
of garlic, some salt and pepper to taste, and chopped up cherry tomatoes (if you like ‘em).
Not only am I revving up my metabolism by eating a good dose of clean protein but I’m
topping it off with some healthy fats and a serious boost of vitamin E, a powerful
Or if I’m feeling crazy and want to switch up the morning routine, I grab myself a slice of
lean ham, an egg, and crank up the oven.
All you have to do is, place your ham in a cooking-sprayed cupcake tin, crack an egg into it,
and stick it in the oven at 400 and bake it for 12 minutes.
Then once you’ve taken your ham and egg cups, just sprinkle some green onions over them
and eat while still hot.
It’s a jazzed up way to eat a healthy meal at only 100 calories and a whopping 17 grams of
protein. After all, when you’re trying to maintain a healthy diet, the littlest change can make
all the difference.

I bet you have never heard of cholecystokinin, hell neither had I, but starting now, it is your
new weight loss friend.
In fact, this little digestive hormone is a natural appetite suppressant that can be found in
high quantities in beans. And not only does it help to keep you feeling fuller for longer but it
also helps to keep your blood sugar even, as well as lower your cholesterol levels.
And while beans are one of the best foods for weight loss, sometimes we view them as one of
the most boring things to eat. So how do we make these bad boys fun to eat?
Well, I personally love to eat beans, specifically chick peas or black beans, in salads. My
favourite being a kale salad I found a while back that is super easy to make, super good for
you, and tastes, well, super!
Just grab a handful of kale, chop it up, cook it for a few minutes until it turns bright green.
Then set it aside to cool down a little while rinsing out a can of black beans.
Then simply lay your black beans down on a plate, top it with your kale, and sprinkle some
cucumbers, red peppers, and carrots onto your pile of yumminess.
For a dressing simply mix:
one tablespoon of tahini paste
one tablespoon of maple syrup
one tablespoon of umbashi plum vinegar
Stir until smooth, drizzle over your salad, and top with your favourite nuts such as raw
walnuts, almonds or even pumpkin seeds.
Or if you have a hankering for sweet but don’t want to fall off track, give this sexy snack a go
– vegan cookie dough.
I know! I’m TELLING you to eat cookie dough! That’s what makes this post just so damn
exciting for me.
To make a batch of this I-can’t-believe-it’s-not-bad-for-me snack just mix:
1 1/2 cups of chickpeas (or white beans) drained
1/8 teaspoon of salt
heaping 1/8 teaspoon of baking soda
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup of nut butter (I like cashew butter, or natural peanut butter if I have no other
1 1/4 cups of pitted dates (you can find them at any grocery store)
1/3 cup of dark chocolate chips (look for a sugar-free option if there is one)
2 tablespoons of oats (you can omit this step if you aren’t big on oats)
1-2 tablespoons of milk (if needed to thin out your mixture)
To begin, soak your dates in 1/2 cup of water for 8 hours before mixing all of your
ingredients (except your chocolate chips), including the date-soaking water, into a food
processor and mix until very smooth.
Then just top with your chocolate chips and enjoy one hell of a tasty and guilt-free snack.
It’s so easy you have no reason NOT to make it.
I bet you were expecting to see apples on this list, but we’re dangerous over here at TBB and
have discovered that pears actually contain more fibre than apples, making them a healthier
In fact, pears contain pectic fibre which helps to lower your blood sugar, cutting out the
desire to snack between meals.
So how can one work pears into their diet without just having to eat countless pears by
themselves? Mix it with some quinoa!
Simply cook yourself up some quinoa (a healthy grain that is considered to be another one
of the best foods for weight loss) using sodium-reduced chicken (or vegetable) broth and
drain the excess fluid. Then mix:
2 tablespoons of walnut, or canola, oil
1 tablespoon fruity vinegar such as pear, raspberry, or even pomegranate
1/4 cup of fresh chives
1/4 teaspoon of salt
Whisk all your ingredients together, add in 2 pears chopped up and mix. Once your pears
are coated in your dressing add in your quinoa and give it a good mix so that all the
ingredients are coated and blended together.
Then just top with nuts and stick it into the fridge for 15 minutes to cool down, or serve
Alright, now I’m just making myself hungry!
It’s back baby! Remember all the crazy diet fads that consisted of pretty much surviving on
grapefruit? Well, that’s great and all, if you’re a pirate who wants to stave off scurvy but if
you are like me and want to incorporate this healthy little fruit in a way that doesn’t involve
just spooning it out of the skin then grab yourself some salmon.
Yep, salmon, another one of the amazing foods for weight loss. It’s weight loss central up in
All you have to do is broil your salmon and top it with this badass little salsa:
2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
2 green onions, finely chopped
3 tablespoons of chopped mint
2 tablespoons of capers, coarsely chopped
2 tablespoons of grapefruit zest
1 teaspoons of crushed red pepper flakes
salt and pepper to taste
This recipe is great for those looking to mix up their boring old diet foods as grapefruit is
said to help reduce insulin levels, a process that can help your body to convert calories into
energy instead of flab-forming fat. And it just tastes yummy. Simple as that.
Hot Red Peppers
Ohhhh baby it’s time to spice things up before we close things down.
A recent Japanese study showed that women who incorporated spicy red peppers into their
meals ended up eating less throughout the day, possibly due to it’s main ingredient,
capsaicin, which is a natural appetite suppressant.
So how can we work these peppers into our meals? Well, just about any way you could
possibly think of!
Why not throw them into an egg white omelette, a soup, a chili, a curry, a marinade, a stir
fry, the options are freakin’ endless!
And if you’re not really that into the spicy foods, just ease your way in. Start with a little bit
and gradually work your way up until you aren’t sweating into your food.
It’s an easy way to incorporate a fat melter into the everyday foods you eat, and hey, if
nothing else, it will definitely wake you up!
No matter which foods for weight loss you decide to adopt into your daily diet, if you can
stay on track, stay focused, and stay consistent you should be able to notice a difference in
your weight without having to compromise on taste.
