video in this series 10 foods to eat on a diet we encourage you to check that
one out as well here’s a quick recap when it comes to managing your weight
the quality of what you eat matters just as much as the quantity according to
nutritional researcher Chris Gunnar’s not all calories are created equal
meaning that even when trying to lose weight you should always pick healthy
foods to make sure you’re getting the best nutritional bang for your buck
without further ado here are 10 more foods which Gunnar’s assures us are
scientifically supported to help you along the path of your personal weight
loss journey number one avocados truly what can we say about
these vibrant green fruits that hasn’t already been said
avocados are so healthy in fact that we’ve already done an entire video about
them be sure to check it out if you haven’t already as for how they impact
weight loss avocados are unique among fruits in that they are loaded with
healthy fats as opposed to carbs as well as a high amount of water and fiber
which lowers its overall energy density avocados are also a healthy source of
potassium more like potassium am i right number two apple cider vinegar whether
using it as an ingredient in salad dressing or
even diluting it into drinking water natural health and fitness enthusiasts
everywhere love apple cider vinegar according to some studies ingesting some
apple cider vinegar at the same time as a meal that’s high in carbs can help you
feel more full thus encouraging you to consume fewer calories it has also been
shown to reduce blood sugar spikes after meals which can also potentially have
long-term benefits when it comes to health and weight loss number 3 nuts for
a healthy snack on the go nuts are where it’s at nuts of various kinds are high
in protein fiber and healthy fats making them both satisfying to eat as well as
packed with nutritional benefits if that wasn’t enough studies have also linked
nuts to improved metabolic health and potential weight loss as well and
population studies have indicated that people who regularly snack on nuts are
typically healthier and leaner on average they’re still high in calories
however so as long as you don’t go overboard and eat too many at once you
should be fine in other words just don’t go nuts when snacking number four whole
grains cereal grains get a bad rap sometimes however certain types of
grains can still provide health benefits and may even be useful when it comes to
losing weight while it’s true that processed grains are unhealthy whole and
cereal grains packed with fiber and protein can be useful when it comes to
managing your weight grains that fall under this category include oats brown
rice and quinoa if you’re trying to avoid curbs altogether though you might
want to steer clear of all grains regardless number 5 chili pepper
what’s your tolerance when it comes to spicy food in addition to adding a
much-needed kick to many a bland meal chili peppers can also add a much needed
kick to your weight loss strategies this is because chili peppers are high in
capsaicin which is a substance that according to some studies has been
proven to reduce appetite and increase excess fat burning in the human body
capsaicin is so useful in this regard in fact that it’s often used as
ingredient in weight-loss products such as dieting supplements however it’s also
worth mentioning that people who eat spicy food on the regular seem to reap
fewer weight-loss benefits from Chili Peppers then people with milder tastes
this would seem to imply that your body might build up a tolerance to these
peppers and the capsaicin that they contain over time if you like things
spicy then Chili Peppers might not be an effective weight-loss tool in the long
term but hey at least they’re still delicious right
number six fruit the health benefits that we associated with fruit have been
known for a long time even though fruits contain natural sugars they’re low
energy density and fiber content prevents the sugar they contain from
being released into your bloodstream too quickly for this reason fruit is a
delicious and nutritious addition to almost any diet in fact the only reason
you may want to consider reducing your fruit intake is if you happen to either
have an intolerance or if you’re on a diet to emphasize reducing the carbs you
ingest such as the ever-popular ketogenic diet or keto diet for everyone
else munch away number seven grapefruit while we just talked about
the weight loss benefits that can come from fruit as a whole some fruits
deserve a little more attention on this list than others one specific fruit we’d
like to shine the spotlight on is grapefruit due to it being the subject
of a number of studies regarding the effects this fruit has on weight loss
and weight management according to these studies people who integrated grapefruit
into their diets not only led to reduced weight but also reduced resistance to
insulin insulin resistance is a condition that affects the body’s
metabolism and can lead to a number of chronic diseases and other unwanted
conditions researchers therefore suggests that eating half a grapefruit
as an appetizer half an hour before meals can help with feelings of fullness
and prevent you from overeating during mealtimes number eight chia seeds
originally used for planting Chia Pets in the 90s it
turns out that chia seeds are also a nutritional superfood as well
chia seeds contain 12 grams of carbohydrates per ounce if that seems
high bear in mind that 11 of these grams is made up of fiber officially making
chia seeds one of the best sources of fiber in the whole world
while the jury’s still out on whether or not she is seeds impact weight loss
directly they’re high fiber content means that at the very least chia seeds
can reduce your appetite and stop you from potentially over snacking this
combined with their high nutritional value means that chia seeds should be
seen as a healthy addition to just about any diet number 9 coconut oil coconut
oil is a high source of medium chain triglycerides otherwise known as MCTS
MCTS are a type of fatty acid and research has indicated that they make
you feel more full and satiated than other fats when ingested and also
increase the number of calories you burn so does that mean you should slather on
some coconut oil all over your meals from now on well probably not coconut
oil still contains calories after all and it has been suggested to use the oil
as a substitute for other cooking ingredients rather than as an addition
number 10 full fat yogurt like we mentioned in the previous video dairy
products are useful food due to their high protein content in addition certain
types of yogurt are also a source of probiotic bacteria which can help you to
maintain a healthy gut and can protect against factors that can cause
inflammation and obesity next time you’re at the grocery store be on the
lookout for yogurts that advertise live active cultures to make sure you’re
buying a brand that comes loaded with these probiotics full fat yogurt in
particular is also associated with a reduced risk of obesity and type 2
diabetes and there you have it between these two videos we now have a list of
20 different types of food that can help you manage your weight and eat healthily
