Foods to Eat Every Day For Weight Loss

For Faster Weight Loss, Eat These Foods Every Day

Including more fruits and veggies in your daily diet is known to help with weight loss, but a new study proves that choosing specific types of produce can help you lose weight faster.

The study followed 117,918 men and women in their 30s and 40s from 1986 to 2010 (24 years), checking in on the individuals every four years. They found that after four years of adding an extra serving of fruit or veggie to their day, it led to less weight gained — 0.25 pounds [0.11 kilos] less for vegetables, and 0.53 pounds [0.24 kilos] for fruit.

The fruits and veggies that had the greatest impact were berries, citrus fruits, tofu or soy, apples, pears, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, and leafy greens. On the other hand, eating more starchy vegetables, including corn, peas, and potatoes, was associated with weight gain.

Other factors in this study could have played into weight changes including physical activity and smoking, but the bottom line is eating more fruits and veggies that are high in fiber and low on the glycemic index are the way to go if you're trying to lose a few.
