Love this simple post by @marcinevin! Here is a quick guide to some simple foods to include in your fat loss diet. Be sure to save this & tag a friend who needs to see this!
Perhaps this is a bit of a misleading title. Because despite what many fat loss marketers want you to believe, there's no such thing as a food that literally burns fat off your body (wouldn’t that be nice 😏). Nope. Only being in calorie deficit can do that.
But that's not to say there aren't foods that make sustaining that calorie deficit a little easier.
Ever tried to diet on nothing but dry chicken breast, steamed broccoli, and lifeless salads, only to give up before you saw any real results because you couldn’t stand feeling so hungry and deprived?
The truth is, dieting doesn’t have to be completely miserable. Yeah you will have to tough out *some* hunger and you might not be able to eat your favorite foods to your heart’s content but you can still eat delicious food that fills you up and leaves you feeling satisfied.
Building your fat loss diet around these 6 types of foods will allow you to reach your fat loss goals more effortlessly and enjoyably.
1️⃣ Eating protein with every meal helps you feel full and stay full for longer.
2️⃣ Fiber is the ultimate hunger fighting nutrients, so load up on the fruits and veg
3️⃣ Foods high in water will provide fewer overall calories but lots of nutrition to keep you hydrated and energized.
4️⃣ High volume foods allow you to eat a large amount for few calories. Broth based soups, big salads, egg whites, popcorn, and rice cakes are good examples.
5️⃣ High satiety foods make you full quickly and keep you satisfied for a long time after eating. These include white potatoes, oatmeal, eggs, beans, white fish.
6️⃣ The only way to stick to a diet for long enough to see results is to build it around foods you enjoy. Both the whole, nutrient dense ones, and the treats you crave (in moderation of course 😉)
