For slimming, it is not necessary to remove all fat. Simply choose the one that is good for you! Here are the 10 fatty foods that will help you lose weight:
1/ THE ADVOCATE
Often criticized as being too caloric or too fat (16%), the lawyer carries a bad reputation unfairly. In addition to being very tasty, it contains excellent and essential fats for the body. Loaded with fiber, it can be very useful during a diet as an appetite suppressant.
2/ ORGANIC BUTTER
Rien à voir avec la margarine, ce beurre est préparé à partir de lait de vache nourries à l’herbe. Si tous les beurres bios ne répondent pas forcément à ce critère, le ghee (beurre clarifié indien) peut être une alternative intéressante. Ces beurres sont particulièrement riches en omégas 3, qui favorisent la combustion des graisses dans l’organisme.
3/ DARK CHOCOLATE
Composed of at least 70% cocoa, dark chocolate becomes your ally. Indeed, cocoa butter contains good saturated fatty acids (stearic acid) which have beneficial effects on the health of the cardiovascular system. It also contains good monounsaturated fatty acids (oleic acid) which are beneficial for weight loss.
4/ THE EGGS
Eggs are frowned upon because of their high cholesterol levels, yet they are a source of good cholesterol (DHL), which is essential for keeping overall cholesterol levels low.
Fatty fish (salmon, sardines, mackerel…) are certainly rich in fats… but good fats. They contain fatty acids, essential to our body that are difficult to find elsewhere. It is these famous omega 3 that accelerate weight loss.
6/ RED MEAT
Recently pointed out by scientists who attribute several harmful consequences for health: cardiovascular problems or a certain number of cancers (colon, prostate, breast, lung…).
Red meat from organic farming nevertheless provides proteins that are easy to burn. Prefer meats to unsaturated fats such as sirloin, beefsteak or rump steak.
IMPOSSIBLE! Cheese is the first thing you were told to ban when you started your diet, isn’t it? Yet, thanks to its calcium and protein content, cheese has a satiating effect and minimizes the body’s storage of fat. It’s all a question of quantity and over-consumption.
Nuts (walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, pistachios…) can help you lose weight and have a flat stomach. Several studies have shown that people who eat a handful of nuts a day, about 30 grams, are slimmer and have a lower BMI (body mass index) than others. Oilseeds contain polyunsaturated fats (including omega-3) and healthy saturated fats that help burn fat. Be careful to eat only fresh natural nuts without salt, sugar or fat.
9/ COCONUT OIL
Numerous studies have shown that coconut oil can increase energy expenditure and burn up to 120 extra calories per day. Therefore, choose coconut oil in your olive oil salads.
10/ DAIRY PRODUCTS
Avoiding dairy products while on a diet is a mistake that can weigh heavily in the balance! Several studies have provided proof of this. They show that those with the highest intakes of calcium (provided by dairy products) and the best blood levels of vitamin D (made largely by sun exposure) benefit from the greatest weight loss.
