A famous meme encircled the internet a few months back where a woman’s secret to fitness was ‘Making cupcakes and letting her friends eat all so that the fatter they got with all that weight gain, the slimmer she looked comparatively!’
However, in reality, do you think this notion will benefit you in any way possible? Will it help YOU lose weight? Nope. It won’t!
While gaining weight is extremely unproblematic, its counterpart is equally vice versa. If you have felt fat layers crawling up your skin and your pants tautening day by day, wait no more and indulge in foods which are made especially for weight loss. Yes! Some foods are like gifts from God, ideal for our weight loss goals.
Let’s wait no more and check out the list of the perfect weight loss foods you need to add to your diet in order to stay slim, smart and fantastic!
Eggs and Eggs!
Eggs were previously known for being high in cholesterol levels but thankfully it was just a fad. Eggs, if you don’t know yet, are ideal for weight loss as they are high in energy levels and extremely low in calorie count.
Eggs are not only nutrient dense with high sources of protein, good fats, vitamins and minerals but they are also the perfect choice for breakfast as they can keep you feeling full for a long duration.
Apple a day keeps the Weight gain away!
An apple a day may keep the doctor away but an apple day surely keeps the weight gain far, far away!
Apples have pectin in them, which is a great appetite controller which slows down digestion and keeps the person full for longer. Apart from this, apples are also a great source of fiber, vitamins and natural antioxidants.
Simply eat your apples in the shape of a fruit salad, raw apple slices, apple chunks or however you prefer them and notice how they aid in weight loss!
Black Beans- Bean it!
Black beans have been aiding weight loss since a long time and they belong to the pulse family. While beans are ideal for keeping the stomach filled for at least 5 hours in one stretch, they pack on 15 grams of protein without adding to the saturated fats and other fattening compounds.
Simply boil your beans and eat them with brown rice or raw.

The green veggies like cabbage, lettuce, broccoli, green beans, cucumber etc are great for your overall health as they provide the body with potassium, carbohydrates, vitamins such as vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin K.
Have your portion of green vegetables daily for dinner and lunch and notice how filling they are without adding fat layers around the waistline.
