Foods That Cause You to Lose Weight

These foods that cause you to lose weight that I am going to share with you are based on research I've done in the past and my own personal experience with each one. Some foods that I will be talking about include grapefruits, pineapples, nutrient den foods. I will also be giving small tips that can help you lose weight.

1. Green Tea
I know green tea is not a food, but it is a very good drink that can cause you to lose weight. The reason is because it contains antioxidants called catechins that inhibit fat absorption. Catechins plus the small amount of caffeine that green tea has also causes your metabolism to increase, meaning that you burn calories quicker. Whenever I drink green tea, I end up feeling hungry way quicker than normal. This means that my body metabolized the food quicker because of the green tea. This is a good thing, except you might end up wanting to eat more because of it. One topic that is up for debt is whether to drink it cold or hot. Drinking it cold has its benefits because your body burns more calories automatically by taking that cold water and making it back to regular temperature inside your body. Then it also could be best hot because the heat might make your body naturally warmer and burn more calories. Regardless of drinking it hot or cold, you will still be able to lose weight with either option.

2. Grapefruits
Grapefruits are acidic, and that acid is able to burn fat. I recommend this because I've done this before and it works really well. The only thing that you need to be careful of is not eating too many. I once ate about 2 grapefruits a day, and after a week my stomach started to hurt really bad. The reason is because the hardships from the grapefruits eat up your mucus lining that surrounds the stomach. Also be careful because the pains can also mess up your teeth. So I recommend eating 1 grapefruit a day at the most, but half a grapefruit a day would be safer.

3. Pineapples
Pineapples contain an enzyme in them called Bromelain, that is used to aid in digestion. You can also feel the difference when you eat pineapples, but it is not as good as green tea.

4. Nutrient den foods
Nutrient den foods are foods that cause you to burn more calories digesting them than they actually contain. These are pretty much fruits and vegetables. It's not all fruits and vegetables, but the ones that are lower in calories. Some examples of nutrient den foods are lettuce, tomato, carrots, cucumbers, apples, watermelon, etc … If you are not sure ones are nutrient lean foods, you can do a Google search for nutrient dessert foods and find a list of them. Eating more nutrient lean foods in your diet will cause you to start losing weight even quicker.
