The title of this article is almost oxymoronic, isn’t it? I mean, everyone knows that you can’t lose weight by eating more, right? That’s only common sense.
Few people stop to consider how frequently something that “everyone” knows turns out to be completely and utterly incorrect. The right foods help in burning calories and curb cravings, thus helping you lose weight by making you feel sated.
Given the huge amount of stress and pressure that brides to be have to suffer on a daily basis during the time leading up to the nuptial ceremony, it is no wonder that so many brides turn to crash dieting or near starvation in a last ditch effort to look good for the wedding. Unfortunately, crash dieting does not help in losing weight and most women turn to alternative cycles of binge eating and near starvation. But there is a scientific diet that can help you lose weight painlessly in the days preceding the wedding. And not only is this diet healthy and safe, but it leaves you with plenty of energy to plan the wedding of a lifetime!
Read on if you want to know about the best kept diet secrets:
If you have an egg for breakfast, then you tend to eat lesser amounts of food later in the day because egg protein is filling. And there is scientific proof for this as well. A study found that women on a low calorie diet who ate an egg for breakfast each morning lost twice as much as those who had a breakfast with the same number of calories, but no eggs.
2. Oats (Dalia)
Guess which food has the highest satiety ranking? None other than the lowly oatmeal. Oats digest slowly, so they make you feel full longer. Looks like the traditional Indian breakfast of dalia has some merit to it after all.
Lentils are loaded with protein and soluble fiber, which help to stabilize blood sugar levels. Variations in the level of insulin (or blood sugar) cause your body to create excess fat, especially in the abdominal area. So lentils will help you to achieve that slim & toned waistline which is all important for a bride to look good in the wedding photos.
Not only are they loaded with folate (or Vitamin P) and anti aging antioxidants, pomegranates are also low in calories and high in fiber, so they satisfy your sweet tooth and help to improve your digestion.
Capsaicin, a compound found in chillies, has a thermogenic effect. Your body burns extra calories for up to 20 minutes after you eat the chillies. And there’s another common sense reason why chillies help you lose weight. You are hardly likely to gulp down a plate of spicy food in a rush, are you? Food that is spicy and full of chillies forces you to eat slowly, thus making you more aware of how much you consume.
