Weight Loss Enhancing Foods

Fruits and vegetables

Relevant Information

Vegetables contain little or no carbohydrate; fruits on the other hand contain mainly sugar that often have total calories that are often less than a slice of bread. They are highly recommended for weight watchers, and those who intend to lose weight, not only because they contain very little calories, but mainly because they contain a lot of fiber that add bulk to a meal, fill the stomach, and force the person to eat less of the other foods.

Fruits and vegetables that contain little or no carbohydrate should be made a major part of every meal of the person that wants to lose weight. This is to ensure that the recommended total calories intake for the meal is not exceeded, irrespective of the quantity of food eaten.

The commonly available fruits and vegetables that contain little or no carbohydrate include garden egg, cucumber, carrot, cabbage and leafy vegetablessuch as ewedu leaf (Corchorus), fluted pumpkin (Telfairia occidentalis), Okazi leaf (GnetumAfricanum), bitter leaf (Vernonia Amydalina), Utazi leaf (Gongronemalatifolium), Water leaf (Talinum Triangulare) and Green (Green Amaranth).

The fruits and vegetables need not be eaten fresh to be sugar neutralizing, the juiced and dried forms are equally effective, and should be consumed when the fruit or vegetable is out of season.

High fiber snacks

Relevant Information

To lose weight means eating very small quantity of food that is often not enough to keep hunger at bay before the next meal. High-fiber snack is the best way to take care of the hunger, without consuming too much calories. The high fiber snack can be an ordinary snack, but with added fiber, such as Kpokpogarri. It can also be a snack that has been specially prepared to reduce its calories content, by for example not adding sugar or oil, and flavouring the snack with low-calories sweeteners.
