Did you know ? Some ingredients, in addition to being good, naturally help you fight against being overweight. Here are 6 ingredients that will do your waistline good in the long term, validated by Raphaël Gruman, nutritionist.
While health is largely on the plate, certain foods are also good for regaining a slimmer figure over time. According to Cnews information, there are even 6 foods to add regularly to your diet to get rid of your small but stubborn love handles (among others). Be careful though, as Raphael Gruman reminds us, there are no fat-burning foods. Simply foods that can help with weight loss.
Apples are also good for your health. In addition to their natural appetite suppressant effect, these fruits are rich in pectin, a fiber that forms a viscous gel that partly traps the sugars and fats absorbed during the meal.
We love raspberries, blueberries, blackberries and blackcurrants, for their tangy and fresh taste. And that’s good, these are relatively low in sugar and their glycemic index remains low. Their high antioxidant content is, on the other hand, a gold mine for health. Not only do these help strengthen our defenses against free radicals, which accelerate aging. But in addition, these molecules promote the burning of abdominal fat.
Whole grains, such as oats, rye, barley, spelled, or even quinoa contain more fiber and protein than so-called refined grains. It causes good long-term satiety, so avoid cravings… Especially for foods that are too sweet or fatty!
Eggs, rich in protein, have an interesting satiating power for healthy eating. That’s not all, they also contain two powerful antioxidants, lutein and zeaxanthin. And cause what is called thermogenesis, a metabolic process that causes the body to produce heat and burn more calories.
It’s up to you to add spices and especially turmeric to your dishes! This spice, also known as Indian saffron, contains curcumin, an active ingredient that helps limit the accumulation of fat in abdominal fatty tissue. It is also a natural anti-inflammatory that reduces cell oxidation
NO to diets, YES to WW!
In addition to its natural draining action, green tea contains caffeine and catechins, which can help with thermogenesis which speeds up the metabolism and therefore help with weight loss Not to mention that green tea can help reduce oxidative stress and inflammation, two factors that promote weight gain.
