4.      Whole Grains

cereal grains get a bad rap sometimes however certain types of grains can still provide health benefits and may even be useful when it comes to losing weight

grains that fall under this category include oats brown rice and quinoa if you're trying to avoid curbs altogether though you might want to steer clear of all grains regardless

5.      Chili Pepper

in addition to adding a much-needed kick to many bland meal ,chili peppers may also add a much needed kick to your weight loss this is because chili peppers are high in capsaicin , according to some studies has been proven to reduce appetite and increase excess fat burning in the body.

 capsaicin is so benificail in this regard in fact that it's often used in weight-loss products such as dieting supplements however it's also worth mentioning that people who eat spicy food on the regular seem to reap fewer weight-loss benefits from Chili Peppers then people with milder tastes.

 this would seem to imply that your body might build up a tolerance to these peppers and the capsaicin that they contain over time .

if you like things spicy then Chili Peppers might not be an effective weight-loss tool in the long term but at least they're still delicious right .

6.      fruit

even though fruits contain natural sugars they're low energy density and fiber content prevents the sugar they contain from being released into your bloodstream too quickly for this reason fruit is a delicious and nutritious addition to almost any diet .

one specific fruit we'd like to shine the spotlight on is grapefruit due to it being the subject of a number of studies regarding the effects this fruit has on weight loss and weight management .

according to these studies people who integrated grapefruit into their diets not only led to reduced weight but also reduced resistance to insulin insulin resistance is a condition that affects the body's metabolism and can lead to a number of chronic diseases and other unwanted conditions .

researchers ,therefore suggests that eating half a grapefruit as an appetizer half an hour before meals can help with feelings of fullness and prevent you from overeating during mealtimes .

8.      Chia Seeds

originally used for planting Chia Pets in the 90s it turns out that chia seeds are also a superfood of nutrition as well .

chia seeds contain 12 grams of carbohydrates per ounce if that seems high bear in mind that 11 of these grams is made up of fiber officially making chia seeds one of the best sources of fiber in the whole world while the jury's still out on whether or not she is seeds impact weight loss directly they're high fiber content means that at the very least chia seeds can reduce your appetite and stop you from potentially over snacking .

this combined with their high nutritional value means that chia seeds should be seen as a healthy addition to just about any diet .

9.      Coconut Oil

coconut oil is a high source of medium chain triglycerides otherwise known as MCTS MCTS are a type of fatty acid and research has indicated that they make you feel more full and satiated than other fats when ingested and also increase the number of calories you burn .

so does that mean you should slather on some coconut oil all over your meals from now on ?

well probably not coconut oil still contains calories after all and it has been suggested to use the oil as a substitute for other cooking ingredients rather than as an addition .

10.  Full Fat Yogurt

dairy products are useful food due to their high protein content in addition certain types of yogurt are also a source of probiotic bacteria which can help you to maintain a healthy gut and can protect against factors that can cause inflammation and obesity .

next time you're at the grocery store be on the lookout for yogurts that advertise live active cultures to make sure you're buying a brand that comes loaded with these probiotics.
