Eggs, Egg Yolks
- Who knew the egg commercials were right? Eggs, specifically egg yolks are ounce for ounce the best source of nutrients available. They pack a ton of vitamin B-12 which the body needs to metabolize fats. In a study done at the University of Louisiana, researchers found that people who ate eggs every morning as opposed to people who ate bagels, lost more weight. Eggs come with cholesterol so you want to check with your doctor before you try this.
Iced Green Tea
- The real brewed stuff, not the processed bottled drinks, are super high in antioxidants and antioxidants speed up metabolism (also great for repairing damage done by high blood pressure). Tea drinkers who consume four cups a day have been proven to burn 266 more calories than those who don’t drink tea.
Fresh Green Leafy Vegetables
- Great source of fiber and antioxidants with very few calories. Plants like spinach, broccoli, arugula, and romaine will fill you up and give you the nutrition you need. What’s really surprising though, is iceberg lettuce, the most commonly used lettuce in commercial salads, has almost no fiber at all. Don’t confuse iceberg with the other great leafy plants.
