1. Whole Grains

When it comes to whole grains compared with processed foods, the difference on your metabolism is pretty big. While processed foods have all the “unnecessary fiber” removed, whole grains are rich in fiber and other nutrients which force your metabolism to work harder to break them down, burning almost twice as many calories as processed food!


On top of this, fiber assists your digestion by “mopping up” waste and making you feel fuller for longer. Due to the high fiber content, whole grain foods contain far less calories, as fiber is not digestible and doesn’t contribute to calorie content.


2. Lean Meat

When purchasing any type of meat, make sure that the fat is cut off it - without the fat, all that’s left in lean meat is protein! The best part about protein is that it requires your body to burn more energy to digest it, so you’re almost burning fat as you’re eating it. Crazy!


There are lean types of meat that contain less fat in them - chicken breast and turkey are great lean protein sources for example!


3. Dairy Products

Dairy products contain calcium and vitamin D, which are crucial for maintenance of your metabolism and also to support muscle maintenance and strong bones. Great examples of high quality dairy include cottage cheese and Greek yoghurt.


If you decide to purchase low-fat or reduced-fat dairy products, always check the label and place it back if it contains added sugars - these are the worst kinds of dairy and lead directly to weight gain!


4. Leafy Greens

These are the best high nutrient foods and to make them even better, they’re low in calories! They assist with weight loss as they are full of vitamins, minerals and fiber giving your body almost everything it needs. When buying leafy greens, ensure they have a rich color, don’t smell bad and don’t look like they’re dying.


While greens are considered carbohydrates, 1 cup of lettuce contains 4 calories while 1 cup of white rice contains 200 - pretty huge difference, especially considering all the health benefits the greens produce. Add as many leafy greens to each meal as you can, your body and your weight loss will thank you for it!


5. Fish

Fish is easily one of the most overlooked foods when it comes to fat loss! They are high in protein and full of all the good fats (omega-3) that you need to stimulate your brain, sleep better, protect your heart and eyes, makes you happier and keeps your hormones working right.


While they have higher levels of fat than other protein sources, they are the good fats that your body can’t produce and actually improve your weight loss! Fish also fills for longer when compared with other animal meats, meaning you’re less likely to reach for that snack!


Remember - Working out is only half the journey!
