Are you struggling with your diet and wondering what you can eat that could potentially increase the amount of weight you could lose?
If so read on, there are various food combinations you could try, without having to succumb to eating celery for your weight loss success.
#1: Broccoli and tomatoes
I would suggest combining both of these to create your own broccoli and tomato soup.
Broccoli is high in fibre, which will help keep you feeling fuller for longer. It is also low in fat and carbs so wont have a negative impact on your waistline.
Tomatoes on the other hand contain both vitamin C and beta-carotene that can help to burn calories. This is because your metabolism will be raised.
#2: Egg whites and spinach
This food combination is a great choice for breakfast as it contains very little fat, nor carbs.
The egg whites are a good source of protein, while the spinach will provide you with plenty of fibre. Combined they will ensure that you do not suffer from any food cravings from breakfast until lunchtime.
Simply use the ingredients together to make an omelette or some scrambled eggs.
#3: Blueberries and oatmeal, with yoghurt
Simply mix all 3 ingredients together to create a filling and delicious breakfast.
Both the oatmeal and blueberries are a good source of insoluble fibre that will expand when it reaches your stomach.
This process helps to keep you feeling full for long periods of time.
The blueberries are also a good source of antioxidants that can boost your overall health.
Finally, the yoghurt is a good source of protein, which is more difficult for your body to breakdown than certain food types, for example certain carbs (white bread or pasta etc).
As it is difficult to breakdown your body will use up more calories during the process. Plus as the energy from protein is released slowly you will not experience the sugar highs and subsequent crash you would associate with eating quick digesting carbs.
These are just a few examples of food combinations for weight loss, I would suggest that you try experimenting with your foods to ensure you do not become bored with your diet.
Once boredom sets in you may find it difficult to stick to your diet long term, which unfortunately will mean that you will fail to reach your weight loss goals.
