NOT ALL CALORIES ARE CREATED EQUAL! -
Different foods affect the body in different ways.. they can have very different effects on hormones, our metabolism, hunger and how many calories we burn throughout the day! -
Here are FIVE weight loss friendly foods that YOU need to add into your diet today!
🍳EGGS: these delicious little babies are great for weight loss! They are high in protein, healthy fats, and make you feel full with very little calories! They are loaded with nutrients but most of the nutrients are in the yolks.. so don't skip out on them! -
🌱LEAFY GREENS: this includes kale, collards, spinach, Swiss chards, and a few others. Leafy greens are GREAT for weight loss because they're low in calories and carbs, but very high in fiber which is great for your digestion 💩 They are also high in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. -
🐟SALMON: salmon is loaded with high quality protein, healthy fats, and contains tons of nutrients. It is also very satiating, so you will feel full hours after eating it. -
🌳CRUCIFEROUS VEGETABLES: this includes broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and brussels sprouts. Like the leafy greens, these nutrient powerhouses are high in fiber (💩🙋🏼) and super filling! Adding more broccoli into your diet will give you abs. Seriously. Just do it. -
🐓CHICKEN BREASTS: studies show that increasing protein intake to 25-30% of calories can cut cravings in half AND cause weight loss of almost 1lb per week!! Chicken is also very satiating, so you will feel full for hours after eating. -
