Rev up your metabolism, remove toxins, chow down on fibers and proteins, and detox with these yummy yet healthy foods that keep you satiated while shedding extra pounds – beans, green tea, apple, bananas, oatmeal, sweet potatoes, cheese, veggies, almonds, dark chocolate, blueberries, chicken and steak.

Losing weight can be quite the journey. You get so focused on what you can or can’t have, that you lose your focus on losing weight. I like to keep a list of foods that will help me shed those unwanted pounds.

Keep in mind that a lot of times people fail a weight loss program because they feel deprived or if they cannot enjoy something. There are so many foods that you can eat out there!

13 Foods That Help Lose Flab

1. Beans

Full of fiber, beans can help you feel full, clear out toxins, and they are versatile and yummy.

2. Green Tea

Is known to help speed up the metabolism and help aid in weight loss.

3. Apple

This is a fruit that is high in fiber, but it also known to be low in calories.

4. Bananas

A great fruit to take with you on the go, but also high in fiber and potassium. Makes a great alternative to a candy bar.

5. Blueberries

Are a great food to help you shed the pounds because they are high in antioxidants. Blueberries are also great for fighting obesity and hypertension.

6. Oatmeal

When oatmeal is used in basic recipes, it’s amazing how filling it can be. You don’t want to add sugar to it, but you can use it to bake breads, muffins, and several other amazing treats. However, it’s not fattening like flour.

7. Sweet Potatoes

If you’re trying to shed pounds, you’ll want to be more focused on eating sweet potatoes and not regular potatoes. Regular potatoes are full of starch and can be fattening.

8. Cheese

Shedding pounds is easy when you eat the right stuff. Cheese can be filling and it’s not full of sugar.

9. Plate Of Veggies

Nature gives us veggies for a reason. Chow down on a plate of these to help you shed points. Veggies are low in calories, but very filling to the tummy. They also are not harsh on your waist line.

10. Almonds

Such a great form of protein to help keep you fuller longer. A hand full of nuts a couple of times a week can help you shed the pounds by keeping you fuller longer.

11. Dark Chocolate

Yes, you can eat chocolate and still slim your waistline and shed the pounds. Dark chocolate has antioxidants, but it also doesn’t have as much sugar as milk chocolate. If you’re trying to avoid sweets, but want something, this will do the trick.

12. Chicken

When chicken is made right, it can be a food to help aid you in shedding pounds. It’s amazing how many different meals you can make with chicken as well.

13. Steak

Yes, you can eat things like steak and still lose weight. Steak is a great protein and something you should enjoy to help you shed those pounds.

These 13 foods can help you shed the pounds in their own way, rotate these foods into your diet and watch how your metabolism changes and you start shedding pounds.

I spent 5 years serving in the United States Coast Guard. Being active and fit was a major part of being in the military. Once I left it I had to find ways to maintain the same active and healthy lifestyle. I started a journey to lose weigh and be more active. This journey has led me to embark on nursing school so that I could better understand how to body works. During my time in nursing school has truly changed the way I have approached health, nutrition and overall fitness.
