5 Super Foods for Super Weight Loss

5 Super Foods for Super Weight Loss

The following superfoods are smart, low-calorie choices that will benefit your weight loss efforts:

Green Tea – Researchers suspect that the catechins (helpful phytochemicals) in green tea may trigger weight loss by stimulating the body to burn calories and mildly decrease body fat. So indulge in either a hot cup or a nice tall iced glass of green tea.

Broth- or tomato-based soup – Soups can help reduce hunger before meals and increase your feeling of fullness.

Low-calorie green salads – Having a low-calorie salad – which is not defined as one that’s loaded with croutons, high fat dressings, and cheese – as a first course can help you feel full, thereby reducing how much you eat with your main course.  Wisely choose your ingredients, and its high fiber content can be the key to helping you fight cravings later in the day.

Yogurt – Including dairy products as part of your healthy diet may promote your weight loss efforts.  Choosing a light yogurt may help you fight off hunger pangs due to its combination of protein and carbohydrate.

Beans – A great combination of fiber and protein, beans help you feel full longer, which means they may work to curb your between-meal appetite.

Water – Water is your body’s lifeblood, and you should be drinking it through your day. It’s a great no-calorie beverage, and you can get it by drinking unsweetened tea, flavored unsweetened mineral water, regular water with lime or lemon, or even in your cucumber.  In addition to helping flush toxins from the body, it can also help you feel full.  So when those hunger pangs strike, try drinking a glass of water before grabbing that snack.

High-Fiber, Whole-Grain Cereal – Whole grains in general help boost fiber and the nutritional value of your meal.  One of the easiest ways to give your daily diet a whole-grain boost is to have a bowl of higher-fiber whole-grain cereal as breakfast or a snack.

Beans contain low fat protein, fiber, b vitamins.

That refers to people in France that have a very high intake of dietary fat and yet have less heart issues than most Americans. This is due to the fact that the Flavonoids in berries and grapes has been shown to reduce cholesterol.

The Super Good Foods You Should Be Eating

The Super Good Foods You Should Be Eating

There are foods that are better for you than others. Don’t believe everything you see on TV. Make sure that you read the labels on food that you buy. A theory that I use is if it comes in a box or has a window DON’T EAT IT.

Here are the good foods that will make you feel good and healthy:

Quinoa – this is a little rice full of protein, calcium and iron and it provides a good source of vitamin E and lots of B vitamins. Almost a complete protein on its own, this amazing little product is high in lysine, cystine and methionine. So good for you.

Spinach and Broccoli – these two veges are packed with antioxidants and phytochemicals, vitamins A,C and K, potassium, magnesium, iron, lutein, folate and phytochemicals. And this is why our Mothers made us eat them! They are a super food and I would like to see them on your dinner plate at least six nights a week.

Red Beans – kidney beans are also an excellent source of antioxidants, protein, fibre, copper, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and thiamine. Lots and lots of goodies in there for such a little bean! I have an excellent recipe for a casserole with red kidney beans in it and you will feel so good when you have eaten it.

Sweet Potatoes or Kumara – these little darlings are 10 times better for you than potatoes. They are high in beta – carotene and vitamin C. They are an excellent source of fibre, vitamin B6 and potassium. Your potassium levels can get quite low when you have cancer so eat lots of these beauties. As you have guessed I love Kumara as we call them here in NZ. They are easy to grow so if you think they are too expensive then start digging up the back yard and grown them.

Olive Oil and Rice Bran Oil – two of the best oils that money can buy. Vegetable nutrients are fat soluble and can only be transported into your cells with the assistance of fat, so use a little of one of these oils to eat with your veges. Use either of these oils in your cooking also.

Salmon – salmon is very rich in omega 3 fats and not only is it good for you if you have cancer, it is also an excellent food to eat to reduce the risk of heart attacks. Wild salmon is best. Try to avoid it from the can.

Almonds – this little nut is packed full of fibre, magnesium (great for cramps) iron, calcium, vitamin E (excellent for skin repair) and riboflavin. The almond also helps lower cholesterol.

Blueberries – the super food. This little fruit is rich in fibre, antioxidants and is a low calorie food. A great way to eat this is in a protein shake first thing in the morning. You will find some amazing recipes if you search on the net.

Vegetable Juice – the best way to get the goodness from vegetables is to eat them raw or juice them raw. They are high in antioxidants and help reduce the risk of cancer and heart dis-ease. If you cannot juice your own vegetables, please make sure you purchase vegetable juices that are low in sodium. Check the label.
Grain Breads – the last super 10 food which is important in your diet, but try to resist the temptation of eating breads daily.

Make sure the grain is sprouting as this increases the important vitamins A, C, B, and calcium iron, magnesium and potassium. It is a flourless bread and provides all the essential amino acids that your body requires. Sprouted grain breads are also good for you if you struggle with integestion.

Super Foods

In this series on Super Foods, we look at the benefits of green foods to nourish the mind, body and spirit.

The power of green plants in healing has been recognized for thousands of years, yet it is only in the last thirty years that we are embracing them as a potent healing and anti-ageing tool. Supergreen foods include wheat and barley grass, the micro-algae called spirulina, chlorella, and wild-blue algae as well as seaweeds. The one factor they all have in common is chlorophyll.

Chlorophyll is the pigment that makes plants green and the greener the plant the more chlorophyll it contains. Green is the colour of spring and renewal. In Chinese medicines it is associated with healing the liver by balancing excesses caused by a toxic lifestyle – high fat and sugar foods, alcohol and smoking. Green also corresponds to the heart chakra located at the center of the chest and it makes sense in western terms that a diet rich in fats can also affect the heart and arteries.

Green foods have a cooling, calming and peaceful quality that offers a yin balance to our stressful, hectic yang lifestyle. You can easily reap the benefits of more green foods simply by eating more vegetables in juices, soups and salads, or by lightly streaming them. Spring is an ideal time to cleanse the liver. Foods such as broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and artichoke plus all the green leafy salad vegetables, herbs and sprouts can kick-start detoxification and help your liver to function at a much higher level, managing the excesses of the party season.

You can accentuate the health benefits of green foods by incorporating wheat and barley grass into your diet. Most people will be familiar with wheat grass that is sprouting up around juice bars in Dubai, where shots are being thrown back as fast as they are being pressed. But what are they living up the hype?

Many of the benefits can be attributed to the extraordinary nutritional value of chlorophyll. However there are many other compounds in wheat grass that have a myriad of health benefits, including renewal of the body, anti-inflammation and purification.

Renewal :
The chlorophyll and haemoglobin molecule are very similar in structure and it is thought that this is why the chlorophyll in wheat grass can enrich the blood and help treat anemia. Of interest in the gulf region where thalassaemia is high amongst Emiratis, research is showing that wheat grass may become an important tool in reducing blood transfusion requirements. Wheat grass is rich in antioxidant enzymes that act as a liver booster, helping to cleanse the body of toxins. This is why it is often used in detoxification programmes with other fruit and vegetable juices. In the intestines it promotes healthy bacterial flora as well as activating enzymes that produce vitamins A, E and K.

Wheat grass contains 20% protein in a highly useable form, as well as the vitamin B 12 plus a spectrum of minerals. As a living food the enzymes it contains acid digestion, so it is no wonder that a single shot of wheat grass can boost energy.

Anti-inflammation :
Wheat grass has exceptional anti-inflammatory properties and is helpful in the treatment of arthritis and skin rashes. Research shows powerful healing effects in burns, fractures and soft tissue injuries. It also calms the tummy and helps to manage indigestion, heartburn, stomach ulcers, ulcerative colitis, hepatitis, pancreatitis and other inflammations of the digestive tract. It has the ability to rebuild tissue, including those of the heart and arteries, and is thus helpful in the treatment of degenerative diseases.

Purification :
Wheat grass not only helps eliminate toxins and alkalinize the system, it also counteracts radiation and other potentially carcinogenic substances in the body such as heavy metals. It has supper antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties, boosting the immune system and helping to ward off cold and flu viruses.

One condition where wheat grass can make a significant difference is in the vital skin condition called molluscum contagiosum.

I recommended wheat grass therapy to a friend of mine whose son had this skin condition, which appears as small pimples that become itchy and then form scabs. This juice was applied directly to the skin a couple of times a day, improving the problem by about 80%, a far better option than having the lesions burnt off as recommended by dermatologists.

Wheat grass juice, though very concentrated, is safe for children, during pregnancy and breastfeeding, both topically and internally. It is normally taken as a one ounce shot (30ml) as the fresh juice or as a powder mixed with water. Once a day is recommended for general health maintenance, one hour or more before a meal on an empty stomach. For disease conditions, especially for digestive problems like colitis, take the juice 2-3 times a day at the beginning of a meal. Some people may experience a mild reaction to wheat grass, including diarrhea or nausea. This can often be as a result of the detoxifying and cleansing nature of the juice or because it may not be suitable for you. So next time you pass a juice bar in Dubai try a shot of wheat grass and see for yourself the miracle of super green food.
