When we talk about eating a variety of foods, it looks as though it is a recommendation for a recipe for weight gain. Yet, it actually helps you lose pounds, even as it gives your body the nutrients it needs to burn fat. Some foods are so strongly connected with disease prevention – as well as being rich in nutrients – that it makes 100% sense to eat them every day.
So, add these three super foods to your daily diet and reap the benefits
Make fruit and yogurt smoothies, top vanilla yogurt with fresh fruit and granola, use on baked potatoes instead of sour cream.
2. Green Tea
Mounting evidence supports green tea’s cancer-fighting properties, most likely due to its antioxidant content. Boosts metabolism and aids in weight loss or maintenance.
Drink your green tea with or without caffeine, hot or iced. Most studies showing the weight-loss benefits of green tea were designed with green tea being consumed with meals.
3. Bran Cereal (or other rich source of wheat bran)
Prevents constipation, is a potent anticancer agent, prevents polyps and may fight breast cancer by diminishing estrogen supplies.
Mix it in with your other cereals, make bran muffins, sprinkle on salads, mix into casseroles or even eat it out of hand with raisins and nuts.
