There are a million and one concepts on which the best foods to eat are when you are trying to lose weight. I prefer real food. Sure you can eat the bars, shakes, and microwave meals but are you really going to eat that stuff forever. If the answer is no then it’s going to be very difficult to lose weight. Here is a list of some of my favorite weight loss foods and why I love them so much.
Chicken is a great weight loss food because it is extremely healthy and easy to make. The fact that it is a great source of protein and skinless chicken breasts have almost no fat should make it a no brainer. Plus you can cook chicken literally hundreds of different ways. Get a good recipe book and chicken will become a staple in your weight loss efforts.
I love brown rice and as a weight loss food I love it even more. Not only is it filling and can keep you satisfied for hours it is also a great source of complex carbs which will be a great fuel for your workouts. The nice thing about rice being a complex carb is that it will not spike your insulin levels which is one of the leading factors in weight gain.
Now, I know many of you are telling yourself that you don’t like veggies but that is probably not true. I don’t know a lot of people who would enjoy taking a bite straight out of an onion but many people love onions on salads, sandwiches, and burgers. The great thing about veggies is that they have little to no calories, can add immense flavor to any dish, and increase the volume of any dish resulting in you feeling fuller from fewer calories.
Chicken, brown rice, and veggies are some of my favorite weight loss foods and I hope you will include them in your weight loss arsenal. However, I do know that everyone has their own tastes and you have to choose foods you truly enjoy.
