5 Fun Foods Groups That Can Help You Lose Weight Fast

When it comes to weight loss, most people fall short or accomplish their goals using a program that is not sustainable or healthy. The result of many fast weight loss diets is that some or a lot of weight is lost but it's not lost in a way that is healthy for the body and the pounds almost always pile back on.

If you want healthy weight loss so you can lose weight quickly but also safely, there are a few food groups that you should make much more common in your diet and of course many foods that should seldom pass through your lips.

To keep it simple and positive, let's focus on only those foods that you should eat. After all, if you are eating more of these you will have less time and cravings to reach for more of 'those other foods.'

The Goal: According to Dr. Eric Berg, renowned weight loss researcher and author, weight gain is typically a problem with glands and fat burning hormones that are not functioning correctly. More and more research is also confirming this to be the case.

So the obvious goal is to avoid the foods that lead to fat retention in the first place and then also ingest more of the foods that will help restore the health of your body which in turn will help you naturally burn fat normally. In other words, stimulate your fat burning hormones again.

The reality is that for most overweight people, the hormones and metabolism are not working like they should - whether from past habits, or genetic weaknesses, or something else. You will not be able to lose on a balanced diet or even with exercise until these fat-burning hormones are being release again.

Good Foods: In our Body Type Weight Loss Program at Health Coach Wellness - Vitality Centre in Downtown Phoenix, we help many different people with very different goals and while each body type requires intake, and avoidance, of different specific foods in order to get the fat burning hormones fired up so they can lose weight, there are a few foods that all the body types can benefit from.

Check these out and try to make them part of your everyday diet.

The average American diet include little to NO nuts. Studies show that your hunger is actually reduced more with eating nuts than something like rice cakes. Nuts also supply you with important essential fatty acids that bring all kinds of health benefits to you without making you fat. Nuts (raw only!) to eat should include walnuts, almonds, pine nuts, pumpkin seeds, and sunflower seeds.

Bean are low calorie and stuffed with protein and fiber. This helps you tone up and lose weight.
My recommendation is to replace as much red meat intake as you can with beans. Be careful of refried beans since they typically high in saturated fats.

Unless you are on a strict restriction to avoid them for cholesterol reasons (which is controversial in itself) then go ahead and incorporate some organic eggs into your diet. You can even settle for just one yolk the rest egg whites as an alternative.

While some body types require a significant restriction in most protein sources while healing the organs and glands responsible for helping the fat burning hormones to ramp back up, once protein can be re-introduced, a great source is fish. Wild caught Tuna and Salmon are great fish selections while oysters, lobster and crab are examples of great non-fish options. Taking in fish as your primary protein is a great way to keep saturated fat to a minimum while boosting your omega-3 intake which pretty much everyone needs more of in today's fast paced and stressful society.

Spinach, romaine, broccoli, kale (try it, its not bad) and other super-food veggies like these can pretty much be guaranteed to help your waist-wasting efforts. However, some other great options are as follows: Lettuce, radishes, green beans, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, leek, endive, spinach, asparagus, cucumber, celery, collard greens, garlic, onions, peppers, squash and string beans.

While most people are looking for fast ways to lose weight, knowing your body type is essential to lose weight fast while still improving health at the same time. Eating more of the food above and less of the foods you know to be bad for you is a great way to get a jump-start onto a healthy path that not only sheds the pounds but also puts more distance between you and preventable diseases such as Diabetes and Heart Disease.
