Have you ever heard of superfoods? You know, the foods Dr. Oz says are keys to improving your health? Yes, those ones. Even though Dr. Oz doesn’t have the swag like he used to, he is right about superfoods.
So what makes a food SUPER?
Superfoods contain a very high “nutritional density.” To put it simply, superfoods provide a fairly large amount of nutrients (vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants) with very few calories. When you eat these foods, you’re flushing your body with nutrients that could do everything from lower inflammation (say goodbye to achy joints) to boosting your weight loss.
And superfoods are the cornerstone of the following tips you need to implement:
1. Include More Superfoods
If you’re going to maximize your nutrition, including more superfoods would be the first step. Low in calories, but high in nutrition, these foods should be part of your daily meal plan. Some of the more popular superfoods include: wild-caught fatty fish (salmon), plain-yogurt, acai berry, spinach, berries, nuts, olive oil, and flax seed. There are plenty of other superfoods you could include, but these are some of the more popular options.
2. Cut Out The Sugar
The average person eats roughly 152 pounds of sugar each year. This means you could be eating up to 3 pounds of sugar each week. That’s an awful lot of the white stuff. Sugar is so bad for your health. Not only does it lead to weight gain, it could lead to unstable blood sugar, mood swings, and cravings. Cutting down, or cutting it out, could accelerate your weight loss.
3. Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth
Cutting down on your sugar intake could cause some blood sugar fluctuations, leaving you craving sugar, sweets, or junk food. To balance your sweet tooth, you should include more berries—like strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries. All of them are low in calories and pack a nutritional punch. Berries could satisfy those sweet cravings while supplying your body with the nutrients it needs to stay healthy.
As you can see, superfoods are powerhouses of nutrition. Not only are they packed with potent vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants…they are super low in calories, so they are perfect on any fat loss plan.
But the key takeaway to this post is cutting back and limiting your intake of sugar. If you take anything from this email, it would be to cut back on the white stuff
