Most Powerful Foods

So what are the four amazing foods to eat for weight loss and better health?

1. Berries

According to a study by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, blueberries are one of the best foods for antioxidant-rich fruits. Right below blueberries are cranberries, blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries.

2. Dark, Leafy Greens

Everything from spinach, kale, and dark lettuces are loaded with vitamins, minerals, beta-carotene, vitamin C, folate, iron, magnesium, carotenoids, phytochemicals, and antioxidants. I also would like to add they are filled with fiber so they will keep you fuller for longer that will help you lose weight.

3. Fatty Fish

Fish like salmon, trout and tuna contains very healthy fats as they are rich in omega-3 fatty acids that can help protect your heart. Omega-3 also has the ability to lower blood fats and prevent blood clots that cause heart disease. Two servicings twice a week is the recommended amount one needs to eat.

4. Whole Grains

Whole grains contain folic acid, selenium, and vitamin B that are heart healthy, help weight loss, and reduces the risk of diabetes. Whole grains are also very high in fiber that will keep you fuller and promotes digestive health.

The Bottom Line

The food you eat determines whether you are healthy or it can lead to a development of disease. Nothing beats the real thing of whole nutritist food that will give you a healthy body and can help you achieve weight loss. Comsume these foods as much as possible to benfit your health.

Good Luck and God Bless!
