Past research has also shown that individuals who take apple cider vinegar with a meal eat 200-275 less calories for the rest of the day.
#5 – Hot Peppers
For years, health experts have known that capsaicin – the active ingredient in hot peppers – boost thermogenesis. Remember, that’s your body’s natural fat-burning process.
It wasn’t until recently, however, that researchers discovered capsaicin also prevents future weight gain – and it does so to a degree of effectiveness as high as intensive surgery. Capsaicin works by regulating the body’s weight genes.
#6 – Tuna
A cup of tuna contains a whopping 39 grams of protein. Why is that important? Well, research has shown that a high protein diet can boost your metabolism to the point where it burns an additional 260 calories per day!
In another study, researchers found that a high-calorie diet helps women eat 441 less calories per day, resulting in a pound of weight lost per week – just by eating!
That said, make sure to stay away from farmed fish – buy only organic.
#7 – Eggs
In one study, researchers had participants replace their bagel breakfast with an equal weight amount of eggs. The participants reported being more satisfied, which was reflected in the fact that they ate an average of 400 less calories over the next 36 hours.
Eggs are also high in protein, meaning that all the protein weight loss benefits mentioned in the last point also apply here!
Be sure to buy organic, free-range eggs from your local farmer for optimal quality.
