5 Foods that help you lose weight quickly

Foods with high fibre
The great thing about fibre is that it helps to stabilize your blood sugar level, which in turn controls your cravings. Lucky for you, there are a lot of foods with fibre, like: whole grain bread, wheat bran, blueberries, oatmeal, chickpeas, and beans.

Dark Chocolate
Guess what? Dark chocolate is good for you. It’s a potent antioxidant that protects the body from ageing and helps to relax your blood pressure. So now you can actually indulge in chocolate (every once in awhile) without feeling guilty about it.

Fruits and veggies with high water content
The higher the water content, the more it fills you up. This means that you’ll eat less during the day. Interested? Then try grapefruit, watermelon, lettuce, tomatoes, celery, and bean sprouts.

Lean protein
Lean protein prevents spikes in your blood sugar, which helps to keep your food cravings down. You can find a lot of tasty lean protein out there like: eggs, chicken breasts, canned light tuna, and white fish.

Foods you have to work for (shells and peels)
The more slowly you eat, the easier it is for your body to realize it’s full. So what’s the best way to slow you down? If you have to work for your food. Eat foods you have to peel like oranges or grapefruit. Or buy some shelled nuts to slow you down like peanuts, pistachios, and walnuts. (World facts)
