Eating more foods that help you lose weight will obviously see you reach your weight loss goal sooner.

Quick weight loss in most cases is only temporary; well that’s what I’ve come to learn anyway, and I’m standing by it.
The foods that you’re about to discover, does help you shift a few pounds, not rapidly, but I think they are worth knowing about, especially for those times when the weight just doesn’t seem to want to move.

4 Foods That Help You Lose Weight
Eating a couple of eggs for breakfast might actually work wonders for your weight loss regime. No longer thought to be a cholesterol-booster, eggs are a concentrated form of animal protein without the added fat that comes with meat. Studies have shown that when people eat an egg every morning they lose twice as much weight than those who don’t. Eggs are packed with a variety of nutrients including protein, zinc, iron and vitamins A, D, E and B12, but contain just 85 calories each. But do avoid fried eggs.
If you’re the kind who fights hunger pangs a couple of hours after breakfast you should try switching to oats. Oats are a whole grain and make you feel full. Not only that, they’re also high in soluble fibre, so they cut cholesterol and blood fat. Besides, it takes longer for the body to digest oats, so they don’t raise your blood sugar and they keep you feeling filled up well into the late morning. So go ahead and experiment. Be it an oatmeal porridge, muffin, cookies or simple oatmeal cereal, try making the switch. You’ll see what we mean.
The adage an apple a day keeps the doctor away could be modified to an apple before a meal keeps the kilos away. Studies have shown that eating an apple 30 minutes before a meal cuts the calories of the meal. Why? The fibre in the apple makes you feel full, so you eat less. Recent research suggests eating apples has other benefits, too; the antioxidants in apples prevent metabolic syndrome, the combination of high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and prediabetes that tends to accompany thickening around the waist. Also, apples are high in pectin, which binds with water and limits the amount of fat your cells can absorb.
Beans for quite some time now have been considered the poor man’s meat. Rich in proteins and whole host of nutrients, this wonder food also aids weight loss. One cup of cooked beans provides a 12 grams of fibre and this provides you with close to one-half the fibre you require daily. When eaten, beans make you feel fuller longer. Also you’ve probably never heard of cholecystokinin, but it’s one of your best weight-loss pals. This digestive hormone is a natural appetite suppressant. There’s also evidence that beans keep blood sugar on an even keel, so you can stave off hunger longer. High-fiber beans can lower your cholesterol. So grab those bags of black beans, kidney beans and lima beans. Read the full article here.
