It takes two to tango we all know. But it can also take two to reduce your weight. If you are aiming to shed the extra kilos, taking two or more foods in combination can help you better in achieving your goal. The 'teamwork' will help you burn the calories even while keeping you full.
Here are some superfoods that can help you get slimmer by working in tandem:
1. Oatmeals With Walnuts:
Both are great food sources and help in reducing weight. The more fibre your diet has, the more your chances are to shed weight. Both walnuts and oatmeals supply the necessary fibre with the latter chipping in with protein.
2. Eggs And Black Beans:
Having eggs for breakfast reduces the calorie intake during lunch and if you have black beans and pepper with them, the fibre gives you a double benefit.
3. Avocados With Green Leafy Vegetables:
Taking avocados with a spinach or kale means that the low calories in the latter, which is rich in nutrients, can be made up for. Avocados have monounsaturated fat, which keeps away the hunger.
4. Beans With Vegetable Soup:
While having a vegetable soup for lunch or dinner minimises the requirement for high-calorie foods, since the liquid of the soup fills your appetite, presence of beans make the meal even better by adding proteins and fibres. Overall, it produces a good effect on your weight-losing plan.
5. Chicken With Cayenne Pepper:
Chicken breasts are helpful in reducing weight. The protein in chicken breasts also keeps you full for longer time. You can also add some cayenne pepper to your dinner menu having chicken breasts. This may encourage the calorie burn and reduce your hunger.
6. Dark Chocolates And Almonds:
Eat dark chocolate with white-protein almonds and your blood-sugar level will be stable, hence reducing the urge to eat more.
7. Green Tea And Lemon:
Squeeze a lemon into your green tea. While the low-calorie drink contains catechins - antioxidants that burn calories, lemon helps the body in absorbing them better.
8. Honey And Lemon Water:
Adding a few drops of honey and lemon in lukewarm water and drinking it on an empty stomach every morning reduces metabolism, hence helping in losing weight.
9. Cauliflower And Olive Oil:
Cauliflower, a cruciferous vegetable, is a low-GI food, which helps in reducing weight. Adding olive oil to cauliflower while roasting it can make you feel full and less hungry, hence reducing the possibility of more food intake.
10. Steak With Broccoli:
Meat is rich in iron and protein and is helpful in building red blood cells, while Vitamin C in broccoli helps your body absorb iron better. Together, they make a great combination for your health and in your weight loss plan.
