I am also a plus size person so every time I see delicious food especially at the malls, fiestas, birthdays or other special occasion I can't help it but to lose control and forget the words "Diet!.."

I did everything I can I skip 2 meals in the morning I only eat bread and milk. While in the evening I eat oats but instead of losing weight and deprive myself for the delicious food I more and more gain weights..It's kind of annoying though..

So I try to research some basic food that can help me to lose weight..As what I researched that some daily foods we usually see on our fridge are the food that can help us lose weight..

So...Here are some information facts of some basic foods that will help us to lose some extra pack.. smile

============================================================================

***7 FOODS THAT HELP YOU LOSE WEIGHT***

1. OATS

Some people are confused if oats is a carbo or not..Yes or No..

The truth is Oats are a whole grain, and they're high on what nutritionists call the "satiety index," meaning oats have tremendous power to make you feel full. Not only that, they're also high in soluble fiber, so they cut cholesterol and blood fat. Oats digest slowly, so they don't raise your blood sugar, and they keep you feeling filled up well into the late morning. Old-fashioned steel-cut and rolled oats, with up to 5 grams of fiber per serving, are best, but even instant oatmeal has 3 to 4 grams of fiber per serving.

2. EGGS

Many people believe that egg is very high in cholesterol and fats that can highly risk of heart attack..

But...Nutritionists have been trying for some years to restore the reputation of the lowly egg.

No longer thought to be a cholesterol-booster (eggs contain a different type of cholesterol than that in humans), eggs are a concentrated form of animal protein without the added fat that comes with meat.

Dietary studies have repeatedly found that when people eat an egg every morning in addition to (or instead of) toast or cereal, they lose twice as much weight as those who eat a breakfast that's dominated by carbs.

3. SKIM MILK

According to: Studies in reputable publications such as the Journal of Obesity (in addition to the controversial ones funded by the National Dairy Council) show that the combination of calcium, vitamin D, and low-fat protein in skim milk and nonfat yogurt trigger weight loss and help build and maintain lean muscle.

4. APPLES

To keep the pounds at bay, eat an apple -- or two -- a day.

Numerous studies have found that eating an apple a half hour to an hour before a meal has the result of cutting the calories of the meal.

Why? The fiber in the apple makes you feel full, so you eat less. Recent research suggests eating apples has other benefits, too; the antioxidants in apples appear to prevent metabolic syndrome, the combination of high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and prediabetes that tends to accompany thickening around the waist. Also, apples are high in pectin, which binds with water and limits the amount of fat your cells can absorb.

As we observe that we see apple anywhere..on the grocery store...markets...or even at the street vendors..who sell fruits. smile

5. RED MEAT

Not exactly what you think of as a diet food, right?

But research in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition compared diet results for women who ate red meat and those who didn't, and the meat-eaters lost more weight. Experts think the dense protein in lean red meat helps you maintain muscle mass -- but of course this assumes you're exercising to build that muscle.

We have also do a basic exercise ... or you can do walking or running that's the best and basic exercise we usually encounter into our daily routine.

6. CINNAMON

This simple spice appears to have the power to help your body metabolize sugar, according to surprising data that came out of a USDA study involving diabetics.

Eating as little as 1/4 to 2 teaspoons of cinnamon a day was found to reduce blood sugar levels and cut cholesterol from 10 to 25 percent. So add cinnamon to smoothies, sprinkle it on your cereal, or flavor your coffee with it -- particularly if you take your coffee with cream and sugar.

The cinnamon will boost the health benefits of the coffee while helping your body rid itself of the added sugars. surprised

7. ALMONDS OR ALMOND BUTTER

Another counter intuitive choice; aren't nuts and nut butters supposed to be incredibly fattening?

Well, almonds are calorie-dense, but they also pack a huge nutritional punch -- and they're particularly effective in counteracting cholesterol and triglycerides.

One study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that eating almonds was as effective as taking a statin.

Spreading almond butter on your morning toast gives you a nice protein boost while preventing the carbs in the toast from spiking your blood sugar.

So that's the 7 basic helpful tips in losing weight..

Many said eggs such as "Balot" is so rich in cholesterol but I don't know doctors believe it as well. Have you heard of that?

Is there danger in eating 3 "Balot" everyday? Tagalog people or people in Luzon love eating Balot more than the Bisaya people. wacko

Nice these are good for fat lose and reduce weight.
I also heard that egg have too much fat but it is necessary to get energy during fat loss period. You also have to eat all the fresh and raw foods like fruits and vegetables....
