10 Foods You Can’t Get Fat From Even If You
Tried
10.
Broccoli- Broccoli is a great healthy vegetable
snack, not only it is low in calories, but
it won’t make you gain any weight.
In fact, it can help you lose weight by filling
you up.
A cup of this cooked vegetable is only 54
calories, and since it is 89 percent of water
by weight, it aids in making you full fast.
In addition, broccoli will help keep your
digestion regular thanks to its fiber content.
It’s also rich in vitamins K, C and A. You
can start off by throwing some broccoli in
a high fiber breakfast salad.
Just remember to steer clear of the ranch,
melted cheese or any other toppings as these
fatty dressings can spike up the calorie content.
Bear in mind that just eating broccoli alone
in the morning, won’t make you lose weight
if you’re on a diet.
As with the other food items on this list,
take into consideration of what other foods
you’re eating and what exercises you’re
practicing if you want to lose or stabilize
your weight.
9.
Plain, Lowfat Yogurt- Yogurt is an excellent
tasty treat that aids with digestion and balances
the bacteria in your stomach.
But I know what you’re thinking, what’s
so great about plain yogurt?!
Well eating plain, unsweetened, low-fat yogurt
is for the best because artificial flavorings
are chock full of sugar that can contribute
to weight gain.
It’s important to stick to low fat instead
of nonfat because when all of the natural
fat is removed, other processed additives
are thrown in to make it taste like regular
yogurt.
Not only is yogurt filling but it’s high
in calcium.
Scientists at the University of Knoxville
have discovered that dietary calcium influences
weight loss so high calcium foods preserve
metabolism and heighten body fat breakdown.
It’s also quick to eat and can be taken
on the go.
8.
Extra Firm Tofu- We’re not talking about
regular tofu here, we’re talking about extra
firm tofu.
So what’s the difference?
Well, extra firm tofu is a bean curd with
lower water content than other types of tofu.
It has more protein due to the presence of
more soy, and it’s firm in texture, less
crisp and virtually tasteless.
Extra firm tofu is considered a slimming food
because it is low in fat and low in calories.
It is also a non animal high protein material
that is rich in phosphorous and calcium that
has a lot of magnesium and iron.
Plus it’s versatile to cook; you can add
it to a hot pot of soup, braise it, stew it
or combine it with minced fish or use it to
make tofu burger patties as a healthy alternative.
If you’re not a big fan of extra firm tofu,
you can go for silken, dried, sweet and fermented
tofu to still get all the protein contents!
7.
Apples- Fruits are essential to maintaining
a healthy diet.
Since apples are over 80% water, this replenishes
volume and provides satiety without packing
on extra calories.
Pectin is a soluble fiber in the fruit that
aids to slow down the digestion process and
helps you feel full.
Apples rank high on the satiety index, and
a number of research findings conclude that
eating fruit overall is linked to weight loss
over time and lower calorie absorption.
Another study observed the effect of consuming
applesauce, apple slices or gulping some apple
juice at the start of your meal.
It was found that those people who ate substantial
apple slices ate 91 lesser calories than those
consuming applesauce and 150 lesser calories
than those drinking apple juice.
To sum it up, eating apple segments also ensued
in higher fullness and lowered hunger and
other forms of fruit.
So what are you waiting for?
Grab an apple and enjoy!
6.
Sweet Potato- Despite its name, it has no
relation to the potato or yam and is an entirely
different type of vegetable that comes in
an array of colors.
Depending on where you live, you may be able
to find sweet potatoes that are orange, yellow,
purple and even white!
Sweet potato is almost four grams of dietary
fiber which helps you feel satisfied with
a lesser amount of food and for a longer period
too than other foods with little fiber.
This vegetable is also loaded with a ton of
nutrients like potassium, vitamin B6, anti-inflammatory
ingredients and beta carotene which is processed
into vitamin A in our bodies.
Sweet potatoes also minimize insulin resistance
and balance blood glucose levels.
Boiling and steaming sweet potatoes are great
ways to preserve its supplements.
Boiling it without its skin is only 151 grams
in calories, and it makes a great addition
to any meal!
5 Citrus Fruits- Just like apples, citrus
fruits like oranges and grapefruits are loaded
with pectin which heightens indulgence and
slows down digestion.
Plus they have a high water content.
In fact, both grapefruit and oranges are over
80% water, so they’ll be able to fill you
up in just under a few calories.
In a study taken from the National Center
for Biotechnology Information, overweight
volunteers who ate grapefruits shed more weight
than those volunteers who were given placebos.
So it’s often been suggested that eating
grapefruit can advertise weight loss.
In a separate experiment, eating half of a
grapefruit at least three times a day during
meal times for six weeks was linked to modest
weight loss and a decline in waist girth.
So even though grapefruits are extremely sour
in taste, it does have a lot of beneficial
effects, and it’ll also fill you up without
gaining any extra pounds.
4.
Beets- This deep dark reddish purple vegetable
has edible leaves and is high in fiber.
It contains nitrates which improve blood flow,
decreases blood pressure and is beneficial
for the heart.
Research conducted by the University of Exeter
found that beet nitrates minimized the amount
of oxygen needed during exercise.
In addition, beet juice also aids people who
can’t exercise due to existing heart conditions.
Another compound in beets are antioxidants
which show anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory
properties in lab studies.
Beets only contain 75 kcal in one cup and
other studies show that beets contain b-complex
vitamins that can lower chronic inflammation.
Try to buy organic beets and don’t peel
away the skin as the skin provides many natural
antioxidants.
Since the
can be destroyed when cooking, make sure to
boil or steam the beets and cut them in equal
medium sizes, so they’ll cook within 15
minutes.
3.
Portobello Mushrooms- Also known as the button
mushroom or white mushrooms, they contain
no cholesterol and is almost fat-free.
They are high in dietary fiber, potassium
and low in calorie.
Interestingly, portobello mushrooms contain
conjugated linoleic acid which some animal
research theorize can help decrease fat mass.
Although present in small amounts, CLA has
been promoted as an anti-cancer property after
scientists discovered its antitumor activities
in lab rats.
Portobello mushrooms can be cooked in various
ways like baking, grilling, sauteing and steaming,
so you can utilize it in many dishes.
It also has a similar texture to meat so it
can also serve as a substitute for animal
meat.
Larger portobello mushrooms are an awesome
alternative for hamburger buns too.
If you’re not a fan of portobellos, you
can also try maitake and shiitake mushrooms
instead.
Daily intake of mushrooms also minimize the
risk of breast cancer in women, so don’t
be afraid to throw in some mushrooms here
and there in your food.
2.
Boiled Potatoes- Many people try to avoid
potatoes due to their higher carb content
when trying to shed the pounds but don’t
worry!
Whole potatoes are chock full of fiber, vitamins
and other nutrients.
They also contain 8,9 resistant starch which
contains half the calories of regular starch.
So in your digestive system, this helps you
feel full by acting as a soluble fiber.
People also tend to eat fewer calories when
they added resistant starch to meals.
Interestingly, whole potatoes alone satisfy
their hunger.
Even after they’ve cooled off, they’ve
increased their starch resistant content.
In one analysis that measured the ability
of thirty eights foods to gratify hunger,
boiled potatoes were ranked number one.
In fact, fried potato chips were discovered
three times to be less filling so opt for
a boiled potato instead and lightly season
for a touch of flavor.
1.
Whole Eggs- Eggs are incredibly healthy, cheap
and can be prepared in a number of ways.
It’s also nutrient rich in protein and contains
vitamin D. You might have seen movies where
people who are training drinks a glass or
raw eggs for breakfast and even though it
may look gross, there’s a good reason for
it.
Eggs have all nine essential amino acids and
are a source of complete protein.
More than half of the nutrients are found
in the egg yolks.
Not only is it a filling food but one analysis
discovered that those who consumed eggs for
breakfast shed more pounds and lowered their
body mass index than those who ate a bagel.
There are also other studies that showed people
who ate eggs in the morning consumed fewer
calories throughout the day and were more
satisfied.
Remember that protein is an essential nutrient
for weight control because it is more satisfying
than fats or carbs.
So get a high protein kick to jumpstart your
day and crack some eggs.
