Top 9 Healthiest Foods to Eat to Lose Weight

14

Super-foods build bones, prevent chronic diseases, improve your eyesight, and even keep your mind sharp. But did you know new evidence suggests these foods can also help you get—and stay—slim? 

  1. Chicken Skinless chicken breasts are a traditional backbone of healthy weight-loss plans. Because chicken has no carbs and just 5 g of fat per 3- to 4-oz. serving, many dieters rely primarily on chicken for their protein needs. Whether you prefer the breast or a skinless thigh or leg — which are similar in low-fat content — chicken is an excellent source of lean protein and has essential nutrients, including iron and zinc.
  1. Eggs- Eggs are among the healthiest foods on the planet and the yolk is by far the most nutritious part. Just imagine, the nutrients contained in one egg are enough to grow an entire baby chicken. Despite the fear mongering of the past few decades, eating eggs does NOT give you heart attacks. It’s nonsense. Eating eggs changes your cholesterol from small, dense LDL (bad) to large LDL (good), increases HDL (good) cholesterol and provides the unique antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin which are incredibly important for eye health. Eggs are high on the satiety index which means that they are particularly prone to make you feel full and eat less overall calories. A study in 30 overweight and obese women revealed that a breakfast of eggs  made them eat less overall calories for up to 36 hours. Bottom Line: Eggs are extremely nutritious and are so fulfilling that they make you eat less overall calories. Among the healthiest foods on the planet.
  1. Fish- Fish is very healthy and eating it is associated with a much lower risk of depression, other mental disorders and several chronic diseases.
  1. Vegetables- Vegetables are high in fiber, antioxidants and nutrients but very low in calories. Eat a variety of vegetables every day.
  1. Fruit- Fruits are real foods. They are tasty, increase variety in the diet and don’t require preparation. If you enjoy eating fruit, have some. If you need to lose weight then it’s probably best not to eat more than one per day.
  1. Nuts and Seeds- Nuts and seeds are nutritious, healthy and generally associated with improved health. Eat them, but not too much.
  1. Tubers- If you’re healthy, active and don’t need to lose weight, you can eat tubers like potatoes and sweet potatoes.
  1. Fats and Oils- Supplement your diet with some healthy saturated and monounsaturated fats. If appropriate, take some cod fish liver oil each day. Choose saturated fats for high-heat cooking.
  1. High-Fat Dairy- High-fat dairy is associated with lower risk of weight gain and a reduction in cardiovascular disease risk in some observational studies.

Protein will not make you fat!

Myth: Excess protein just turns to fat

We find this myth the most amusing.  Even if you knew nothing about nutrition, you’d probably assume it was quite difficult to turn a piece of muscle tissue into the fat that sometimes surrounds it. Just look at a piece of marbled steak. Intuitively, you’d probably think it would be some kind of magic to turn the red tissue into the white tissue.

You’d be right. It isn’t necessarily magic, but it is a very long and metabolically costly process to turn protein into fat. Protein needs to be broken down into amino acids and absorbed. That process alone burns about five times as many calories as the process of breaking down carbohydrates to glucose. Once the amino acids are available, they can be used for growth and repair or converted to glucose. If they are to be converted, that requires some energy again. The body will turn protein to glucose when necessary, but it prefers not to. If the glucose isn’t needed, it can then be converted to fat.

You can’t turn protein directly into fat. At some wildly excessive point, you might be able to eat so much protein that it could become useless and get stored as fat. However, protein has such a potent effect on reducing appetite, you wouldn’t be able to eat that excessive level on a daily basis. You’d also expend a lot of energy as heat with the excessive protein intake.

Myth: Vegetable protein is just as good as animal protein

Myth: Vegetable protein is just as good as animal protein

Just to be clear, we’re not opposed to getting some protein through plant sources. However, we would not rely only on plant-based protein sources, especially without using nutritional supplements.

A higher protein diet typically has 30% or more of its calories from protein. Put another way, protein intake is often 1 gram per pound lean mass to 1 gram per pound body weight, depending on one’s body composition. To achieve protein intakes that high without supplementation would be difficult with only plants, unless someone ate an enormous amount of soy. 

Aside from the difficulty in getting enough protein from plants alone, most are deficient in certain amino acids. It’s possible to combine them, but it takes some practice. Frankly, other than observational studies comparing one country’s food consumption against another’s, it’s hard to find a reason to recommend plant-based proteins over high-quality animal proteins.

For now, we just want to point out that the quality of proteins, and the amount per serving, in vegetable foods and animal foods is dramatically different. We recommend  all for eating plenty of vegetables and fruit each day, but it’s for the vitamins, minerals, fiber and phytonutrients, not for the protein they contain.

Eggs and Cholesterol. How Many Eggs Can You Safely Eat?

5

Eggs are among the most nutritious foods on the planet. However, eggs have gotten a bad reputation because the yolks are high in cholesterol. In fact, a single medium sized egg contains 186 mg of cholesterol, which is 62% of the recommended daily intake. People believe that if you eat cholesterol, that it would raise cholesterol in the blood and contribute to heart disease.

But it turns out that it isn’t that simple. The more you eat of cholesterol, the less your body produces instead. Let us explain how that works…

How Your Body Regulates Cholesterol Levels

Cholesterol is often seen as a negative word. When we hear it, we automatically start thinking of statin medication, heart attacks and early death. But the truth is that cholesterol is a very important part of the body. It is a structural molecule that is an essential part of every single cell membrane. It is also used to make steroid hormones like testosterone, estrogen and cortisol. Without cholesterol, we wouldn’t even exist.

Given how incredibly important cholesterol is, the body has evolved elaborate ways to ensure that we always have enough of it available. Because getting cholesterol from the diet isn’t always an option, the liver actually produces cholesterol. But when we eat cholesterol rich foods, the liver starts producing less.

What Happens When People Eat Several Whole Eggs Per Day?

For many decades, people have been advised to limit their consumption of eggs, or at least egg yolks (the white is mostly protein and is low in cholesterol). Common recommendations include a maximum of 2-6 yolks per week. However, there really isn’t much scientific support for these limitations.

Eggs and Heart Disease

Don’t eggs increase the risk of heart disease? This theory came from the idea that eating saturated fat and dietary cholesterol increases the risk of atherosclerosis and other heart diseases. Research over the last decade confirms that dietary cholesterol appears to have little, if any effect on blood cholesterol, and there’s no evidence to show saturated fat consumption increases the risk of heart disease, so avoiding eggs for this reason doesn’t make much sense.

Summary:

The liver produces large amounts of cholesterol. When we eat a lot of eggs (high in cholesterol), the liver produces less instead. Many observational studies show that people who eat eggs don’t have an increased risk of heart disease, but some of the studies do show an increased risk in diabetics.

What’s So Healthy About Eggs?

7Look up the nutrition facts for egg yolks, and you will find, it reads more like a multi-vitamin than a food that has been demonized due to its saturated fat content. Just 3 egg yolks, not including the whites, provides over 50% of your daily need for Vitamin D and Selenium, over 40% of Vitamin B12, over 25% of Vitamin B5 and Phosphorous, and over 15% of Iron, Folate, Vitamin A, Vitamin B6, and Vitamin B2. These same three egg yolks also provides 8 grams of protein and 7% of your daily omega 3 fats. Egg yolks also contain the carotenoids, lutein and zeaxanthin, which are antioxidants believed to help prevent against degeneration and chronic disease.

Eggs Have Plenty of  Health Benefits

Let’s not forget that eggs are about more than just cholesterol… they’re also loaded with nutrients and have various other impressive benefits:

    • They’re high in lutein and zeaxanthin, antioxidants that reduce your risk of eye diseases like macular degeneration and cataracts.
    • They’re very high in choline, a brain nutrient that over 90% of people are lacking in.
    • They’re high in quality animal protein, which has many benefits – including increased muscle mass and better bone health.
    • Studies show that eggs keep you fuller for longer, reduces appetite and help you lose fat.

Eggs also taste amazing and are incredibly easy to prepare.

So even if eggs were to have mild adverse effects on blood cholesterol (which they don’t), the benefits of consuming them would still far outweigh the negatives.

Having eggs for breakfast is good for losing weight

According to a study, having eggs for breakfast is good for losing weight, as it keeps people satiated for a longer time. We eggsplores…

Barring vegetarians, who doesn’t love having eggs for breakfast? Whether they’re sunny side-up, scrambled, in the form of omelette or our good ol’ anda bhurji. Some of us egg lovers even revelled in the slogan ‘Sunday ho ya Monday, roz khao ande’. However, in recent times, eggs have gained notoriety owing to their cholesterol content. As a result, health-conscious people, especially celebs, only consume egg whites, and some have even gone to the extent of banishing eggs completely. But now, a study conducted in the UK says eggs are the best way to cut the flab. That’s because eggs can keep people fuller for a longer duration of time, compared to the other food options consumed for breakfast. And this, in turn, helps people who are desperate to munch on snacks such as biscuits, chips and other junk food. We asked experts in the city, if the study holds true.

Keeps you fuller
Anything that contains high protein gives a stomach-filling effect. Eating protein-rich eggs for breakfast reduces hunger and decreases calorie consumption throughout the day. A study has claimed that the leucine that is found in eggs plays a unique role in the regulation of muscle protein synthesis and Insulin signalling. So, the introduction of food which is rich in protein — for example, eggs — in the diet, while reducing the consumption of complex carbohydrates in the body, also helps to burn the body fat. This, in turn, helps in controlling your hunger and food cravings, explains consulting dietician Dr Sunita Dube. Egg whites, she says, are low in calories and helps in losing weight.
Agrees consultant nutritionist Niti Desai. She says eggs contain protein and fat, which give the feeling of a full stomach for a much longer time. Also, eggs have definite calories — so, the caloric intake at breakfast is more or less fixed and restricted. On the other hand, the quantity of other popular breakfast options such as upma/poha can range from half katori to two katoris. All these factors make eggs an excellent breakfast option.

What about cholesterol?
Health consultant Dr Parul R. Sheth says, “An egg contains about 212 mg of cholesterol, all of which is present in the yolk. And the recommended amount of cholesterol is about 300 mg per day. It is true, therefore, that eating too many eggs can increase your cholesterol level. But studies have pointed out that eating four or fewer egg yolks each week does not increase your risk of heart disease.” She adds, “To be on the safer side, you can eat only the egg whites; these have no cholesterol.”

Don’t avoid them completely
Egg yolks contain a hefty dose of cholesterol compared to egg whites. However, they are also a source of unsaturated fat and protein, as well as vitamins and minerals. And so, you should not avoid them completely. Consume them occasionally because they also contain food sources of natural vitamin D. Egg yolks contain 23 per cent of your daily choline recommendations and meets 6 per cent of your daily folate needs. Half of the protein found in egg yolks have an orange colour because of plant pigments Lutein and Zeaxanthin. Both these pigments support eye and muscle health and helps in easy absorption, opines Dr Dube.

How much to have?
Dr Sheth says, “You can eat as many egg whites as you wish since they contain almost no fat and cholesterol. Boiled, scrambled, poached or omelettes — without butter — in moderation (one egg with yolk per day) is fine.” Your age, sex, body weight, and level of physical activity determine your calorie intake. A normal adult with a sedentary lifestyle should not consume more than four to five eggs a week, advises Dr Dube.

The Evolutionary Diet for Carnivores

What we want for our dogs is a diet and an environment that maximizes health. That means a Biologically Appropriate Diet rather than a natural diet. The philosophy behind using Biologically Appropriate is that the diet a dog or cat evolved to eat – over many millions of years of evolution – is the best way to feed it. A biologically appropriate diet for a dog is one that consists of whole foods similar to those eaten by the dogs’ wild ancestors. The food fed must contain the same balance and type of ingredients as consumed by those wild ancestors. This food will include such things as muscle meat, bone, fat and vegetable materials and any other “foods” that will mimic what those wild ancestors ate.

Dogs evolved as hunters and, just like their wild cousins, their teeth, jaws and digestive system are all adapted for meat concentrated diets that are rich in fresh meats and meat diversity. With short digestive tracts and gastrointestinal systems, dogs and cats are adapted to metabolize animal flesh and fat, not grains and carbohydrates. Drools Chicken & Egg diet mirrors the same balance and consist of variety of ingredients including cage free real chicken, egg, fresh vegetables, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

Drools chicken and egg is specially formulated for growing puppies and adults. It contains real chicken as number 1 ingredient to build and maintain lean muscle mass for top body condition. With only the finest ingredients it contains what your dog needs to stay happy and healthy. A great combination of ingredients, vitamins, minerals and nutrition for everything from strong bones to optimal digestion. Drools chicken and egg is developed to help your dog live a long and healthy life. Omega 6 and 3 fatty acids to help your dog have healthy skin and beautiful coat. Chicken, whole dried eggs, corn, rice, wheat, corn gluten meal, fish oil, soya refined, corn oil, lecithin, essential amino acid, minerals, vitamins, salt and antioxidants.

What makes eggs a ‘super food’?

Eggs – A valuable contributor to a nutritious diet !

We all know eggs are delicious. But did you know they also reduce your risk of diseases, protect your skin and eyes from UV damage, and improve liver and brain function? It’s true, and they’re just some of the amazing health benefits of eggs.

As a great protein food (with a complete amino acid profile, I might add), eggs help your body keep building more of the best version of you. They’re such a high-quality source of protein that the World Health Organization uses them as the standard for evaluating protein quality in other foods. In my estimation, eggs are one of the least expensive sources of high-quality protein available.

Your brain requires a stable supply of glucose for its energy. Large daily swings in glucose concentration can have a negative effect on the brain’s memory and cognitive functions. The protein inside eggs is the highest-quality protein of any food. That protein can make you feel fuller for longer periods of time, causing you to maintain more stable blood-glucose levels. The high-quality protein in eggs also forms a necessary component of important neurotransmitters, such as dopamine and norepinephrine. These are chemicals that brain cells use to communicate among themselves. The net effect of all these processes on the brain is an enhanced feeling of energy and alertness. Eggs are also high in choline, which is an essential nutrient that aids brain function in adults. Choline is used to maintain the structure of all cell membranes.

The lutein and zeaxanthin in eggs don’t just protect your eyes by filtering certain light wavelengths. They do the same with your skin. By filtering out the more harmful blue spectrum rays, these carotenoids slow down the oxidative damage light can wreak on your skin, specifically by UV rays.

Eggs contain five of the eight best nutrients that help you to fight and reduce your risk of skin cancer. If you have a risk for skin cancer, eggs can be one of the weapons you use to prevent it happening to you.

Eggs Contain Even More Bone-Healthy Nutrients – Eggs are a rich source of the Vitamin B complex, a group of vitamins that have a broad scope of action. As it relates to bone health in particular, eggs contain the following potent combination of B vitamins listed in the Program as Foundation Supplements:

B6 (pyridoxine)

B12 (cobalamin)

Folate (the naturally occurring form of synthetic folic acid)

Eggs are also abundant in Sulphur, which is critical to the process of creating collagen. You see, bones are made up of 65% mineralized collagen that gives bones their solid infrastructure and 35% collagen matrix shaped like a crisscrossed protein, similar to a beehive. The collagen matrix is made of nutrients and minerals that give flexibility to the bones so they can resist breaking. And the high Sulphur content in eggs is part of what makes them so beneficial for healthy hair and nails.

Aid in weight loss – Eggs are incredibly nutrient dense and filling, mainly because of their high-protein content. High-protein foods have been known to reduce appetite and increase fullness, compared to foods that contain less protein. Studies have repeatedly shown that egg meals increase fullness and reduce food intake during later meals, compared to other meals with the same calorie content.

 

Eggs: A Killer Weight-loss Food !

Eggs are among the healthiest foods you can eat. They are rich in high-quality protein, healthy fats and many essential vitamins and minerals.

Eggs also have a few unique properties that make them egg-ceptionally weight loss friendly.

Eggs Are Low in Calories The simplest way to lose weight is to reduce your daily calorie intake. One large egg contains only about 78 calories, yet is very high in nutrients. Egg yolks are especially nutritious. An egg meal commonly consists of about 2–4 eggs. Three large boiled eggs contain less than 240 calories. By adding a generous serving of vegetables, you’re able to have a complete meal for only about 300 calories. Just keep in mind that if you fry your eggs in oil or butter, you add about 50 calories for each teaspoon used.

Eggs are Very Filling Eggs are incredibly nutrient-dense and filling, mainly because of their high protein content. High-protein foods have been known to reduce appetite and increase fullness, compared to foods that contain less protein. Studies have repeatedly shown that egg meals increase fullness and reduce food intake during later meals, compared to other meals with the same calorie content. Eggs also rank high on a scale called the Satiety Index. This scale evaluates how well foods help you feel full and reduce calorie intake later on. Additionally, eating a diet high in protein may reduce obsessive thoughts about food by up to 60%. It may also cut the desire for late-night snacking by half.

Eggs May Boost Your Metabolism Eggs contain all the essential amino acids, and in the right ratios. This means your body can easily use the protein in eggs for maintenance and metabolism. Eating a high-protein diet has been shown to boost metabolism by up to 80–100 calories a day, through a process called the thermic effect of food. The thermic effect of food is the energy required by the body to metabolize foods, and is higher for protein than for fat or carbs. This means that high-protein foods, such as eggs, help you burn more calories.

Adding eggs to your diet may be one of the easiest things to do if you’re trying to lose weight. They can make you feel fuller and help you eat fewer calories throughout the day. Furthermore, eggs are a great source of many vitamins and minerals that are commonly lacking in the diet. Eating eggs, especially for breakfast, may just be what makes or breaks your weight loss diet.
