1. Stock Your Fridge for Weight Loss Success
The journey of losing weight starts in your kitchen, and the first step is to remove all refined, sugary packaged foods from your pantry and fridge. Refined foods are highly processed and have been stripped of their nutrient content and fiber. But wholesome foods like vegetables and fruits, whole grains, beans and other legumes, and healthy fats such as avocados, nuts and seeds, and olive oil are packed with essential nutrients and antioxidants that are beneficial for optimal health and weight loss. However, there are some foods that offer exceptional nutritional value. Check out my list of top power foods.
Packed with nutty flavor and a hearty crunch, almonds are also a great source of monounsaturated fats, which have been shown to help reduce your heart disease risk by lowering your LDL cholesterol levels (the bad stuff). Moreover, research suggests that people who eat about a handful of almonds a day tend to have healthier body weight and live longer than people who don’t.
