The Foods For Weight Loss and Diabetes Management

By Lindelwa Maseko

While it is known medical fact that there are a few conditions that can cause a person to gain weight like thyroid or hormone problems, by far the biggest contributor to weight gain is too much food. In fact if you really want to lose weight then you need to learn more about the foods that can help this happen.

There are so many great kinds of food that not only maintain an enviable physical shape, but also stimulate fat burn. In fact there are a number of categories of food that can help maintain weight and allow you to actually enjoy your diet.

Among the weight loss food types that make the basis of regular dishes we could mention brussels, cabbage, boiled beans, peas, lentils and pasta. Spaghetti meals that have tomato sauce and meats like veal which is low in fat content mean that you can enjoy your food without feeling guilty. Many meals highlight the combination of steamed white fish and vegetables a healthy low calorie option and you can even add mashed potatoes to this mix without worrying about calories. Low fat fresh sweet cheese, yogurt and tofu are other clear examples of regular weight loss food, together with porridge oats and dark rice, which are also worth mentioning and ideal for any diet.

Of course fruit and vegetables should not even have to be mentioned but almost all of them have beneficial effects on the system and are foods that help with weight loss. Even the likes of strawberries, kiwi fruit and water melons are excellent examples of fruits that have this dual role of health and weight loss functions.

Grapes are often the fist fruit of choice when visiting a sick friend in hospital and there is good reason for this as they are very healthy but fruits to avoid owing to their higher calorie count are bananas and figs. Vegetables that can help with weight loss (as they are primarily water) but are very healthy are the likes of celery, cucumber, lettuce and tomatoes.

Foods with high a sugar content (amongst others) like chocolate, cakes and fast foods are not good for healthy weight loss, in fact probably the complete opposite; unhealthy weight gain. Many foods that we enjoy like mayonnaise, dark chocolate, ice-cream and even cookies are being made in low fat versions that still retain a flavor almost as good as the full fat versions. While this is good, if you want a successful weight loss program to follow you will need to read the ingredients label carefully on these products before you add them to your weight loss diet.
