Every day we come across people discussing the health benefits of colourful vegetables and fruits, but not all are backed by strong research. Green tea, raspberries and coconut milk are some of the time-tested and research-proven food items that can be trusted.
HERE’S A LIST OF NUTRIENT-RICH FOOD ITEMS THAT ARE BENEFICIAL TO THE BODY
- Coconut milk: The healthy saturated fat in coconut comes from medium-chain triglycerides, a fatty acid your body prefers to burn rather than store.
- Raspberries: Blueberries hog the spotlight, but raspberries are actually higher in fiber. One cup provides a whopping eight grams. Experts say you probably get about half the fiber you should, and on a lower-carbohydrate diet,even less. Benefits include balanced blood sugar levels and reduced cravings.
- Green tea:The popular beverage’s fat-burning benefits are well known. But balance it with a healthy diet and exercise for better results.It also helps reduce stress.
- Avocado: It is high in healthy mono-unsaturated fat and fiber and improves overall diet quality, nutrient intake, and reduces risk of metabolic syndrome. One cup contains 10 grams of appetite-curbing fiber — the perfect food to top salads and burgers as a snack.
Changing your diet can be difficult and frustrating. Especially if you’re not sure which foods will provide the greatest boost to get your metabolism going.
You don’t need to completely eliminate bad food right away. Quitting cold turkey doesn’t work for people, and that’s not making a healthy change – that’s a stressful change. Instead start with working the super foods back into your diet while controlling the portion size and frequency of other junk foods.
