If you wanna get skinny, you’d better start EATING! That’s because certain foods can actually help you lose weight! So here’s a daily eating plan that’ll help you drop those lingering pounds. This comes from Woman’s World and it starts with breakfast:
- Pour some honey in your tea – or on your oatmeal. Why? According to registered dietician Tammy Lakatos Shames, honey may improve blood sugar control and insulin sensitivity, which helps control appetite and weight.
- When lunchtime rolls around: Have a bowl of chili. Chili powder contains capsaicin, which speeds your metabolism for up to three hours after you eat it, and a speedy metabolism will help you burn more calories. Plus, chili’s red beans are loaded with antioxidants that tinker with fat cells in a ways that helps curb obesity!
- The next step in your daily weight-loss eating plan involves an afternoon snack: Skip the vending machine candy bar and have peanuts. The unsaturated fat in peanuts boosts your metabolism, helping you blast fat all day long. Don’t eat too many – a handful of peanuts contains 160 calories.
- The final step in your weight-loss eating plan: Start your dinner with soup. We’ve said this before, but it works! Having soup before meals can reduce your daily calorie intake by as much as 20 percent! That’s because the liquid of the soup takes up more room in your stomach, so you feel fuller sooner and eat less.
