Do Certain Food Combos Help Lose Weight?

Posted In: Fitness & Wellness

If you want to lose weight, we can help at Prime Fitness in Totowa, New Jersey. We focus on helping you be the best version of yourself. Besides exercise, you have to eat healthy and there are foods and food combos that can help lose weight even faster. It’s the combinations of phytochemicals and vitamins within certain foods that work in synergy to help you lose weight faster. These foods are healthy when eaten alone, but even more nutritious when eaten together.

An oil based salad dressing can boost the benefits of the fruits and veggies in the salad.

Telling some people to consume fat can make them go off the deep end. They think all fat is bad. That’s just not true. You need healthy fats to burn fat, so including healthy fat, either in the form of salad dressing or by adding cheese, nuts or seeds to a salad can help. The fat also helps with the absorption of the nutrients in the fruits or vegetables. The fat in the dressing, nuts, avocado or cheese also helps you feel fuller and maintain that feeling longer, so you eat less.

Snack on apple slices with peanut butter and a sprinkle of cinnamon to burn calories.

There are food combos that seem to be on everyone’s healthy snacking list and an apple and peanut butter combo is one of those, especially if the peanut butter is crunchy. The fat and protein in the peanut butter make you feel full and keep you feeling full. They also boost insulin metabolism. The fiber in the apple helps burn visceral fat. To make it even more perfect, top it with some cinnamon. The polyphenols in the cinnamon keep blood sugar stable so you don’t ride the roller coaster of peaks and valleys. The cinnamaldehyde in the cinnamon helps burn belly fat.

That food combo could come in the form of a drink.

Green tea is known for boosting weight loss. It’s because of the ECGC in the green tea, which boosts fat burning. Green tea also has antioxidants that helps release fat from fat cells to aid in turning fat to energy. By adding a little lemon to the tea, the polyphenols and pectin act increase your feeling of fullness. If you want to include another appetite suppressant, put a sprig of mint in the tea. Infused water can also help if you infuse it with cucumber and lemon.

  • Oatmeal is a good weight loss breakfast and combines with fruits like strawberries or kiwis to improve vitamin C levels. However, combine it with blueberries and you’ll get a fat burning duo, because of the polyphenols that blast belly fats.
  • Spinach salad with chopped eggs and olive oil blasts away at fat. Studies show that when eggs were consumed with spinach, which had a dash of avocado oil for dressing, it helped whittle waistlines and shed extra pounds.
  • There’s no better dessert than a parfait and it can burn tons of fat when it contains Greek yogurt, raspberries or blueberries and almonds. They all work together to burn fat cells, especially around the belly and on the legs.
  • The healthy fat, which also burns fat, in avocados combine well with sprouted grains, like Ezekiel bread. The fiber in the bread and fat in the avocado keep you feeling full longer while burning more fat. Sprinkle on some cayenne pepper to burn even more fat.
