11 Amazing Foods for Healthy Weight Loss

One of the most difficult things to overcome as we get older is the battle with the bulge. Millions of people all over the world suffer from obesity or displeasure with their weight. Therefore, weight loss techniques and advice have become some of the most sought after wisdom on the web. Recent research suggests that obese people have a greater sense of smell for food. Obesity can be a very serious problem and besides your physical appearance and self-esteem that can be affected, it is also a major cause behind some of the most serious diseases, including cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, depression, and even various cancers. There are hundreds of potential solutions for obesity, but what most people want is the easiest and most effective solution.

Lifestyle changes and exercise can be very effective for getting in shape, but perhaps most importantly, eating right is the best way to effectively maintain or lose weight until you get to your ideal weight. Maintaining a healthy diet can be tough, especially in fast-paced modern life, but you will be happy that you did in the long run. It isn’t even particularly difficult; making healthy diet choices becomes natural and rewarding. Healthy food is extremely delicious and there are all different sorts to choose from, depending on your specific tastes.

However, there are good, healthy foods and then there are high-powered super foods that are specifically known for healthy weight loss. A lot of these foods are so healthy because they help you stay full for longer and curb cravings, which will reduce the chances of overeating and subsequent weight gain. Apart from healthy foods, chewing may also aid in weight management. Research suggests that increasing the number of chews before swallowing may help to reduce food intake and aid in weight management.

Let’s explore some of these wonderfully beneficial foods.

Foods for Healthy Weight Loss


Beans are well known for having high levels of protein, as well as a great deal of fiber. Fiber fills you up and reduces your desire to eat additional food. Also, it is high in protein, without adding much fat. This makes beans a perfect addition to your diet if you are trying to lose weight, or if you simply want to maintain the weight you have.

Breakfast Foods

Eating a healthy breakfast is an ideal way to start the day, because it provides you with a base of nutrition that will keep you from eating and snacking between meals. Eggs and sausage is a protein-rich choice, and while they are not necessarily the healthiest options, they are delicious and can help keep your appetite suppressed.


This delicious fruit, when eaten raw, is a wonderful way to keep your weight down. This is primarily due to the higher fiber content in raw fruit, rather than the level found in juice or applesauce. Studies have shown that eating apples decreases appetite and prevent overeating. Furthermore, eating apples requires quite a bit of chewing, which actually sends signals to your brain that you are eating a considerable amount of food, thereby decreasing hunger.


Eating beef in various forms can be a very good way to lose weight, even though many people say that red meat can be a “diet buster”. The fact is, eating organic beef that is particularly lean is a good way to get your protein requirements, enjoy what you eat, and still manage to keep away from weight gain.



This delicious leafy green vegetable is one of the best weight loss foods out there. It is extremely low in calories, very high in fiber, and packed with beneficial nutrients like iron and calcium. Other leafy green vegetables like spinach are also beneficial for weight loss, but kale comes out on top!


These small legumes should be the versatile and fat-busting parts of your diet that you rely on to slim down. Lentils actually help to regulate blood sugar, which prevents your insulin levels from fluctuating. Those fluctuations can actually cause weight gain, particularly excess fat in the stomach and abdominal area.


It would seem like eating a high-fat food like avocados would be bad for weight management, but in fact, not all fats are bad for you. There are plenty of fats, like the oleic acid found in avocados that our body requires for proper functioning. In fact, certain fats stimulate weight loss, as strange as that may sound. Avocados are a very good choice for healthy weight loss.


Like many of the foods on this list, blueberries are very high in fiber and relatively low in calories, only 80 calories in a cup of blueberries, but more than 4 grams of fiber, helping to curb your hunger and help you slim down. They also help regulate your metabolism and keep you healthy and younger with their wealth of antioxidants.

Brown Rice

Don’t eat empty calories like you might find in white rice. Brown rice is packed with fiber and is a very functional carb that provides you with instant energy. Therefore, it helps give you the energy for more activities and exercising, which can also help you lose weight. Furthermore, easily consumed carbs are less likely to be converted into fat.


Believe it or not, wine is a very powerful fat-burner, when consumed in moderation. Grape skin contains a famous component, called resveratrol, which actually prevents fat from being stored in the body. It also speeds up the metabolism and increases sedentary calorie burning for up to two hours after drinking a glass of wine. Red wine tends to have more of this important compound.


These fat-burning super foods help increase your body’s metabolism due to high levels of Resistant Starch. This means that your body will naturally be functioning at a higher level, helping your energy and also burning more calories every day. Start every day with a banana and see the difference it can make in your life!

Dark Chocolate

There are a number of very interesting facts about chocolate, but besides being delicious, dark chocolate can actually help you lose weight. It can slightly slow down digestion, which means you feel full for longer. Secondly, dark chocolate contains monounsaturated fats, which stimulate your metabolism and help to burn off excess calories.


Intake of vegetables such as spinach also helps in weight management. Recent study suggests that Thylakoid found in spinach can curb cravings and hunger which can further help in weight loss.


This starch-heavy food is three times as filling as white bread and generally keeps you feeling full for a long time after eating. Potatoes are also high in resistant starch, which is great for burning fat.


Research conducted by the University of Liverpool suggests that intake of prunes as part of a weight control diet can improve weight loss.

Green Tea

Intake of green tea also helps in reducing weight. It contains epigallocatechin gallate which is an antioxidant and which stimulates the fat-burning process in the body.

Whatever your diet is composed of, make sure that you are getting a proper mix of nutrients and beneficial components to keep you healthy. Weight loss is more than just eating specific foods; it is an entire perspective shift on life, including lifestyle changes and mindset. However, these are some of the foods that can complement your weight loss efforts the best. Good Luck!

Awesome staff, I have being researching for quiet some time now and I can confirm that every food listed here will help you lose weight, however bear in mind that the only way to lose weight is reducing intake calories and replace bad carbs and fats for good ones as mentioned on the list, also exercise will help boost the process speeding your metabolism. You don't have to kill yourself, it's proven that over exercising will not actually burn fat, instead it will eat your muscle because once your body has no nutrients to give it in, the system actually look for the muscle which is richer in nutrients. 30-45 min of jogging, walking, running will actually help and at least 4 times a week, stick to that and you will definitely see great results. It is not easy but once you get use to the routing you will feel the difference.
