The 4 Best Organic Foods for Weight Loss Revealed

By on July 17, 2013
You could stand to lose some weight–most of us can–but what’s the best way to slim down? According to Denise Foley of WebMD.com, it’s all about what you eat, not necessarily the calories.

“Go grocery shopping,” says Foley. “New research points to more than a dozen foods, from beans to beef, that can help you fight hunger, kick your candy addiction, boost your metabolism-and ultimately shed pounds. And some of these superfoods deliver health bonuses too.”

For a healthier kick, these foods are also organic, kicking out of the bad-for-you chemicals from your diet routine. To get thin, try these foods on for size:

1. Free range eggs. We’re often told that eggs aren’t good for you–after all, it contains a lot of cholesterol–but emerging research says that isn’t the case.

According to a recent study, overweight women who ate two scrambled eggs for breakfast ate fewer calories over a 36 hour period overall than women who opted for a bagel instead. Going free range also has its own benefits: For instance, it contains more good fats, such as omega-3 fatty acids, which may fight heart disease and Alzheimer’s disease.

2. Organic apples. Most of us know the saying–an apple a day keeps the doctor away. It turns out that getting your daily nosh of this key fruit could also keep weight loss high, thanks to its high fiber content.

A study conducted by Penn State University found that people who ate an apple before a meal of pasta tended to eat fewer calories throughout the day. It’s also a good option for snacking due to its low calorie count–a medium sized apple contains around 80 calories.

3. Almonds. While almonds are more famous for its high good fat content, which may reduce the risk of heart disease, it’s also gaining attention for another reason: It could kill cravings.

The evidence? According to a study by the University of Toronto, people who ate almonds with white bread had steadier blood sugar levels overall compared to those who just ate white bread. And blood sugar is important too–when it spikes erratically, it’s more likely to make you hungry, leading to more calories consumed, and unfortunately, weight gain.

What to do: Adding a handful of almonds to your meal is a great way to keep hunger at bay.

4. Green tea. Technically this isn’t a food, but it is organic–and it’s a great way to boost your weight loss. Here’s why: Studies have found that those who drink green tea lose more weight overall compared to those who don’t, even if their caloric intakes don’t change.

Other studies show that green tea enhances a person’s energy expenditure, or metabolism, by nearly 40 percent. It also contains other good-for-you nutrients, such as epigallocatechin gallate, or EGCG, a type of antioxidant that may prevent heart disease and cancer.

Case in point: If you’re not drinking this now, you absolutely have to.
