5 Foods That Are Surprisingly Good For Fat Loss
Dark chocolate- benefits of dark chocolate are specific to the concentration of cocoa flavonoids, which have been shown in studies to have multiple health benefits, such as improving blood flow to the brain and reducing the risk of heart disease by lowering cholesterol levels, blood sugar and blood pressure. Skip the milk chocolate and other high sugared foods and go with 70% Dark chocolate or higher. The higher the percentage of cacao, the greater the benefits.
Red wine-I know what you’re thinking! This can’t be an excuse to indulge every day. But for some giving up alcohol is a not realistic. I will say if you are drinking one daily, you should slow down and don’t rely on alcohol to change your state. Use healthier methods but a small glass of red wine is considered healthy because of resveratrol and can help reduce stress but if used daily can add inches to the waistline over time.
Grass fed steaks– Red meats are high in calories due to high fat so portions should be sized out properly. But grass fed steaks have a healthier fatty acid chain and provide adequate protein intake. Pair it with some slow carbs and veggies for a completely nutritious meal.
Coffee– Not all coffee is created equal — most of the benefits associated with coffee are singular to black coffee — not the cream and sugar-filled coffee beverages from your favorite coffee shop. Limit the flavored (and over-priced) lattes to a rare treat. Stick to the basics.
Eggs-Eggs are super cheap and cook quickly — a perfect solution for busy, time-crunched mornings. Cook your eggs in coconut oil and use them as a vessel for sautéed greens and vegetables, then serve them over whole-grain toast for a complete, well-balanced, weight-conscious meal.
