  Foods To  loose Fat  and  Protect Your Heart.
Oatmeal

In general, any kind will do (instant, old-fashioned, steel-cut). But technically, I like the old-fashioned oats because they are more coarse and thus will have a lower glycemic index since they are not as small-cut as instant.

Oatmeal is a great source of fiber, in particular, soluble fiber. This fiber is great for lowering cholesterol by increasing the elimination of the bad cholesterol, In fact, there was a recent paper that showed a compound in oats called avenanthramides (AVA) has favorable anti-inflammatory and antioxidant potential. Granted, this was a supplement with a higher dosage of this compound, however, the compound is still found in oats, and whether it has this benefit from such a small amount in one bowl of oatmeal is besides the point.

Almonds

Too many good things. It is rich in monounsaturated fat, rich in vitamin E and other minerals and a decent source of fiber. Studies have shown the beneficial effect of almonds on lowering cholesterol.

Recent research has even shown almonds can even boost exercise performance and help fight fatigue.

Just a no-brainer as a staple. It can be enjoyed anytime of day and is just fantastic! It is loaded with calcium, protein, vitamin D and good bacteria to aid digestion and even reducing cholesterol.

Yogurt has also been shown to augment fat-loss and reduce abdominal adiposity Calcium, which is abundantly found in yogurt and dairy foods, has been shown to not only be great for preventing osteoporosis, but reports show it can also accelerate fat-loss

Blueberries

Next they are low in calories and I have read they are anti-inflammatory, reduce blood pressure and are rich in nutrients Not to mention, they taste absolutely great. Frozen blueberries have a nice crunch and make a nice addition to cereal, oatmeal or a protein shake.

Grapefruit

Fresh grapefruit or even the juice are fine. Why do you think there is a grapefruit diet? Apparently this fruit has done something right! Grapefruit is the size of a cabbage ball, yet on 40 calories for the entire thing!

It is one of the, if not the lowest calorie fruit, ounce for ounce. It is rich in vitamin C being a citrus fruit. Grapefruit has also been shown to aid in fat-loss and reduce insulin resistance.

Grapefruit also has natural testosterone-stimulating effects It also is a good source of beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate Also, it is very satiating and filling being filled with water and having a bitter sweet taste to satisfy any sugar-craving.

Weight-Loss Real-World Application: No matter how bad your sugar craving is at night, eat 1-2 slices of grapefruit then re-evaluate. Again, this will dampen the severity of the craving and you will likely make a healthier choice or eat less of what you originally craved. Best case scenario though, you eat the entire grapefruit!

Water

Water satiates, lubricates and accelerates us! Water can boost metabolism Remember, we are 70% water by bodyweight, so if we keep our aqueous internal environment replenished, this will only speed up and expedite our body's daily functions.

Water also keeps the joints lubricated. So instead of looking for the next hot joint support supplement, why not drink an extra glass of water. So often we take little things like drinking water for granted. Water can also satiate us. Water has a strong effect on creating expansion or distention of the stomach.

Pineapple

Bromelain is what I'm talking about! This is a powerful anti-inflammatory substance and pineapple is rich in it .Pineapple is also rich in vitamin C and has just a fabulous taste. I sometimes like to make a great tropical fruit salad with it.

Tamari Pumpkin Seeds

Prostate Protection

They promote overall prostate health and alleviate the difficult urination associated with an enlarged prostate.

Improved Bladder Function

In some studies, pumpkin seed extracts improved bladder function in animals.

Depression Treatment

They contain L-tryptophan, a compound naturally effective against depression.

Prevention of Osteoporosis

Because they are high in zinc, pumpkin seeds are a natural protector against osteoporosis. Low intake of zinc is linked to higher rates of osteoporosis.

Natural Anti-Inflammatory

Pumpkin seeds effectively reduce inflammation without the side effects of anti-inflammatory drugs.



Pineapple Fresh pineapple is an excellent source of antioxidant vitamin; vitamin C. 100 g fruit contains 47.8 or 80% of this vitamin. Vitamin C is required for the collagen synthesis in the body. Collagen is the main structural protein in the body required for maintaining the integrity of blood vessels, skin, organs, and bones. Regular consumption of foods rich in vitamin C helps the body protect from scurvy; develop resistance against infectious agents (boosts immunity) and scavenge harmful, pro-inflammatory free radicals from the body.

It also contains small amount Vitamin A (provides 58 IU per 100 g) and beta-carotene levels. These compounds are known to have antioxidant properties. Vitamin A is also required maintaining healthy mucus membranes, skin and essential for vision. Studies have suggested that consumption of natural fruits rich in flavonoids helps the human body to protect from lung and oral cavity cancers.

In addition, this fruit is rich in B-complex group of vitamins like folates, thiamin, pyridoxine, riboflavin and minerals like copper, manganese and potassium. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids, helps controlling heart rate and blood pressure. Copper is a helpful cofactor for red blood cell synthesis. Manganese is a co-factor for the enzyme superoxide dismutase, which is a very powerful free radical scavenger.



Egg

ating eggs provides you with a wide range of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin D (needed for healthy bones and teeth), choline (essential for normal development of the brain and memory), folate (important if you are pregnant or intending to get pregnant), calcium (for healthy bones and teeth), iron and selenium.

First, eggs are satiating due to the protein content. Protein has an effect on the hormone ghrelin, which is involved in influencing appetite regulation. Too keep things simple, protein will satiate one longer.

4.They are not a cholesterol risk. All major heart and health organisations have lifted limits on recommended egg consumption, as it's now known that the dietary cholesterol in eggs does not have a signifcant effect on blood cholesterol.

Eating plant foods are very low in fat and loaded with nutrients. The yolk of an organic egg actually has less cholesterol than conventional eggs.
