The most crucial way to accomplish your fitness goals is through good nutrition. We know that 80 percent of our weight loss success is determined by what we put into our bodies. Yet, we tend to get confused about what to eat to stay lean and fit. So, here are the top six foods I recommend consuming for optimal weight loss. #1 Oatmeal It’s great to start your day off with oatmeal because it’s a fantastic energy booster and simple to cook. It’s best to make it yourself, but if you purchase packaged oatmeal, be sure it is low in sugar. Rolled whole-grain oats are packed with insoluble and soluble fiber that make you feel full and prevent you from overeating. #2 Chicken Breast Chicken is one of the best weight loss foods you can eat, especially the rib meat. By consuming the leanest part of the chicken you will experience the best fat burn possible. #3 Egg Whites The protein in egg whites is an excellent source of energy and is very low in calories. Eating this fat-free food throughout the week will further assist you in getting closer to the six-pack youve always wanted. #4 Brown Rice Packed with fiber and essential nutrients, brown rice slowly absorbs into your bloodstream, making it one of the healthiest carbs around. Just be sure not to over-consume. I would suggest eating 4-8 ounces at lunch or dinner time. #5 Almonds Throwing almonds into your diet is helpful for appetite suppression and is an easy-to-prepare snack. These yummy nuts are rich in Omega-3 fats, low in calories, but high in nutrients. But be sure to purchase them raw or with little to no salt. #6 Asparagus Asparagus has many wonderful attributes to help trim the tummy. They are low in calories and fat and high in nutrients. The fleshy, green spears have natural diuretic affects to help rid water from your body. This delicious spring veggie also contains the chemical asparagine that directly affects the cells and breaks down fat. Best of luck to you as you work toward achieving your weight loss goals.
