Add Fruit, Veggies and Fiber to your Diet for Safe Weight Loss
No Weight loss program wants you to stop eating or eat less in order to reduce the weight. Instead, you have to control the calorie intake because success of your weight loss program depends on the amount of calories you consume and burn. You can burn fat while on diet, as long as you plan your diet wisely. The best way to reduce your weight in a healthy way is by adding foods that keep you feeling full and satisfied, without increasing the weight.
Fiber: Add fiber in your diet plan to feel satisfied
If you cannot control your hunger or cannot work with empty stomach, start eating foods high in fiber. High-fiber foods take time to chew and hence make you more satisfied. Such food items also consume a lot of time to digest, so you’ll feel full for a long time.
Some of the high-fiber foods are as follows-
Fruits & Vegetables– Add strawberries, apples, oranges, berries, nectarines, plums, leafy salad and all types of green vegetables to your diet.
Beans– You can use any kind of bean such as black beans, lentils, split peas, pinto beans, chickpeas to add them to soup, salad or anything to make a healthy dish.
Whole Grain– You can try high-fiber cereal, oatmeal, brown rice, whole-wheat pasta, whole-wheat or multi-grain bread, bran muffins, or air-popped popcorn to stay satisfied when you’re on diet.
Fruits and Veggies– To Maintain the Body Energy level
You cannot spend your day in counting calories and deciding the size of bites. Fruits and vegetables are safer eat as much as you want. The high fiber and water content of fruits and vegetables makes you feel full for a long time. You can make your meal more delicious with a lower calorie count by using following tips-
* Fill your morning bowl with a little less cereal and add some fruits such as blueberries, strawberries or bananas. You’ll enjoy a full bowl breakfast, but with fewer calories.
* Remove an egg or little cheese from your omelet. You can add tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, spinach, or bell peppers to your omelet.
* Replace some of the meat and cheese from your sandwich with different veggies such as lettuce, tomatoes, sprouts, cucumbers, and avocado for a more balanced diet.
* Avoid the high calorie snacks such as chips, etc. and eat fruits whenever you feel the hunger.
* Try your meal with salad or soup, so that you eat less but feel full.
