We all know that there are certain foods that can help us lose weight. But did you know there are combinations of these foods that will make you lose weight even faster? They work together to make your meals more satisfying and nutritious, while also making sure you stay on track with your goals. So buckle up, and get ready for a dose of useful and easy snack and meal ideas that will help you achieve your weight-loss goals faster.
Eggs are a great source of protein and essential vitamins and nutrients. They’re also pretty satisfying and filling, 2 eggs for breakfast is really all you need. Avocado is a great source of healthy fats, and it’s amazing for giving you a lot of energy without spiking your insulin levels. Together these two make a great meal for those who wants to lose weight or just be healthy.
2. Watermelon+Balsamic Vinegar
I don’t know if you’ve ever tried putting watermelon in a salad and sprinkling balsamic vinegar on it – but it’s delicious. It also turns out it’s good for your health and can help you lose weight. Watermelon is very low in calories and is basically 95% water, and balsamic vinegar is proven to control appetite, so together they make a great weight loss snack.
3. Chicken+Cayenne Pepper
It’s no secret that chicken breasts is the most popular protein choice for those wishing to slim down. The reason for that is that it’s low in calories but high in protein, which makes it exactly what you need for healthy weight loss. Cayenne pepper is rich in capsaicin, which is what makes it taste hot, but also it’s great at suppressing appetite and revving up metabolism at the same time. Sounds like a great combo, don’t you think?
Bananas are full of vitamins and they make sure your digestive system runs smoothly. They also are great at satisfying hunger since they are full of fiber. Spinach is full of vitamins and amino acids, but very low in calories, so having these two foods together is a recipe for a healthy gut and quick weight loss. You can just slice up a banana and have it wrapped in spinach leaves, or make a delicious smoothie by adding water.
5. Peanut Butter+Oatmeal
Oatmeal with peanut butter is probably one of the healthiest breakfast options out there. Not only will it satiate your hunger and keep you full for a long time, it will also provide you with a lot of fiber, which is good for digestion. As it turns out, peanut butter is not just a yummy treat, it’s also full of protein and healthy fats. But you have to look out for the ingredients. The best peanut butter only contains peanuts. You don’t want any added sugars, oils and preservatives.
6. Brazil Nuts+Figs
Lots of people fall for marketing and buy protein bars for snacks. They think it’s the healthiest option out there. But in reality, a lot of protein bars are covered in chocolate and loaded with sugar. So you know, not that healthy. Brazil nuts and figs are a much better alternative, since they’re not processed and full of vitamins your body needs. Both of these are rich in fiber and antioxidants that boost your metabolism.
If you like sweet and sour, zesty flavors try this combo. Both pineapple and lime are great at making your body digest foods better. These fruits speed up your metabolism and make your body burn fat faster. Plus they make a delicious smoothie.
8. Carrots and Tahini
We usually see carrots served with hummus, and while hummus is great, delicious and also quite healthy it’s no competition to tahini. You see hummus is higher in calories and carbs. But tahini is a great source of protein and healthy fats, not to mention it’s incredible anti-inflammatory qualities. Carrots are relatively low in calories and carbs and they’re full of vitamins B, K and beta-carotene. All in all these two make a yummy meal or snack.
Oranges are full of vitamin C and citric acid which promotes fat burning and boosts your metabolism. They’re also a great alternative to a chocolate dessert, since they’re also sweet, but low in calories. Adding a dash of cinnamon to your orange slices will give you an interesting twist on the usual flavor and an added boost to your metabolism thanks to cinnamon.
You know where this is going, right? Chocolate banana ice-cream that satisfies your sweet craving and helps you lose weight at the same time. If you freeze the bananas and then blend them in a blender with some organic cacao nibs you get a delicious dessert that’s actually healthy. If you make sure to control your portions, and only blend it one banana at a time – you can have it every day without sabotaging your weight loss goals.
