High Fiber, High Protein, Low Calorie Foods

The key to beating belly fat is to boost our intake of the “good foods”! Sounds simple right? Boost food!

I hear your doubt. “What?  Are You Telling Me To Eat MORE?”

It sounds counter intuitive doesn’t it.  You want to lose weight so why would you eat more?

It’s all about balance.  So for many people, yes you will find that you need to eat more. But you will be increasing ONLY the right kinds of food and will be limiting intake of others.  If we want to lose weight we need to eat!

Most important is to keep supplying our body with:

  1. Foods that provide a healthy level of nutrients and fiber.  This allows your body to function well.
  2. Foods that are low in calories but fill you up.  This means you don’t break and binge.
  3. Foods that are low fat and require your body to burn stored energy reserves (belly fat

High Fiber and Lean Protein reduce belly fat!

Start eating a high fiber diet and increase your intake of lean protein.  This is by far the best way to reduce your calorie intake without having to eat less or feel hungry.

Evidence from research has shown this on many occasions.  The Harvard University School of Public Health (HSPH) research confirms that the best diet includes high quality, high fiber and high protein foods.

A major benefit of high fiber high protein food is that they have fewer calories per gram.  This means you can eat more of them without worrying you’ll put on weight and without feeling you need starve yourself.

When considering the high fiber high protein foods to select always think “whole foods” because quality counts!  That means foods that are not hugely processed and you know what is in them! 

So, no protein bars or shakes unless you know what is included.  Many contain fillers, usually processed carbs.

4 Amazing Recipes – How To Lose Belly Fat Naturally

How To Lose Belly Fat Naturally With Methi, Ajwain and Kali Jeeri
How To Lose Belly Fat Naturally With Methi, Ajwain and Kali Jeeri

Methi, Ajwain and Kali Jeeri – Ayurveda At Home

Okay, so this isn’t a meal, but it is possibly the most famous and well known of all the Indian weight loss remedies.  And for good reason.

Methi Ajwain Kali Jeeri has been used as a remedy to lose belly fat and excess weight for centuries.

There are a number of health benefits that these 3 simple seed ingredients hold which will help you shed those extra pounds.

If you are serious about how to lose belly fat naturally you have to read this!

Methi (Fenugreek Seed)

Probably better known in the West as fenugreek seeds. They help when losing weight because they increase your metabolism which helps you burn fat quickly. Adding methi seeds to your diet helps keep you feeling fuller for longer as they are full of fiber.

Methi seeds also contain an important fiber with indigestible carbs known as galactomannan.  The galactomannan reduces glucose absorption.  This prevents a rise in blood sugar.

Normally after we eat our blood sugar spikes and our body recognizes it as a great opportunity to save some of this sugar. It stores it as fat.  Methi helps prevent this.

Ajwain (Carom Seed)

Known also as Carom seeds, boost the weight loss process. Ajwain is a natural laxative, useful for stimulating digestion and keeping us regular.

Kali Jeeri (Bitter Cumin Seed)

Black cumin seeds, are especially useful when targeting the fat around belly area.

This is due to high levels of Phytosterols which limit cholesterol absorption and high levels of Oleic Acid which accelerates the rate your body burns stored fat. It also is a natural diuretic which stops bloating.
