There are really only two main components to weight loss, namely dieting and exercising. In this article, I am going to share with you exactly what foods you should eat more of so that you lose the greatest amount of weight in the shortest period of time.

First of all, fish is a great alternative source of protein. When most people mention natural protein sources, they think of beef, pork or chicken. However, fish is also very rich in protein! Additionally, fish usually have a lower calorie content and fat content versus beef, pork and chicken. They also contain Omega 3 fatty oils within it, which are essential if you want to have a slim and healthy body. Simply bake a salmon filet in the oven with lemon over the top, and you will have a delicious protein-rich meal with far less calories than the usual chicken, pork or beef!

Secondly, grapefruits are a good food to eat to lose weight. Adding half a grapefruit to your daily breakfast may just help you burn off some excess calories, and help you lose some weight! Adding more such fruits to your diet is a healthy way to satisfy your hunger with calories which actually provide nutritional benefits; as opposed to soda which only gives you empty calories. Grapefruit will also help to curb your appetite, and you will find it easier not to binge eat, therefore making weight loss an easier job for yourself.

Natural whole grain oatmeal will also do wonders for your body. It is a great source of whole grain, which is important for a healthy body. I recommend that you go for the plain version of whole grain oatmeal, as it contains less calories and fats. It is packed with healthy carbohydrates and will serve to satisfy your hunger with low to moderate levels of calories.

Finally, natural nuts are always great for fat loss. Although some nuts do have higher amounts of fats within them, research has shown that there is indeed good nutritional benefits to eating these nuts. Examples like baked almond nuts and pistachios are not only tasty, but also contain a good amount of protein within. The unsalted version of such nuts make for fantastic snacks, as they are low in calorie levels. If you are used to snacking and are not able to get rid of this habit immediately, consider taking baked natural nuts as snacks instead!
