It is important to recognise that diet is usually the major factor in weight gain. Our modern diets are full of sugar, as well as processed foods that have minimal nutritional value but are high in kilojoules. Plus don't forget all the hidden sugars in processed foods. Let's face it consuming modern foods makes it very easy to put on weight!
Most of the time, adjusting your diet will be enough to help you lose weight and stay healthy. But there are times when people do not respond to dietary modifications. When this happens, it may indicate a problem with a person’s hormones or their endocrine system, or suggest malnutrition, digestive problems, toxicity or illness. Further investigation by a health professional may be needed.
The best way to start is to keep it simple by eating natural unprocessed foods. These foods are easily digested by your body and contain no preservatives or other additives.
Some Great examples include:
Cashews – This nut is energy-dense and contains a high amount of dietary fibre, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, copper and manganese. Cashews have a high-fat content, but this is considered a ‘good fat’.
Chia seeds – High in protein and with less fat than many other types of nuts and seeds, making them a healthier alternative.
Cauliflower – A good source of vitamins K and C. Consume it raw, steamed or baked.
Cucumbers – This is a good source of vitamin K. Add it to salads or water, or consume raw.
Edamame – Soybean pods give you 5 grams of fibre and 10 grams of protein per cup – and only 120 calories. Edamame keeps you feeling full, and it also contains vitamins C and K.
Avocados – Avocados contain monounsaturated fats that may trigger your body to feel full. Stick to a quarter or half an avocado and watch that belly fat melt away. This creamy fruit is also packed with fibre and protein. Avocados are delicious additions to salads and breakfast or enjoy them as a snack.
Raspberries – One cup of raspberries provides 8 grams of fibre for just 65 calories. Raspberries are also high in antioxidants, vitamin C, manganese and fibre. They’re perfect for naturally sweetening oatmeal, yoghurt and water, or just consume them raw.
Oats – Oats are rich in fibre, so a serving can help you feel full throughout the day. Just a ½-cup packs in 4.6 grams of resistant starch, a healthy carb that boosts metabolism and burns fat. We love oats in our smoothies, and in porridge for breakfast.
Quinoa – Loaded with protein and fibre (8 grams and 5 grams per cup, respectively), this South American grain will quiet your hunger. It’s also relatively low in carbs, which makes it a blood-sugar-friendly food.
