3 Weird Weight Loss Foods

I have a few weird weight loss foods for you today.

Why are they weird?  I don’t know.  Probably because they’re not commonly thought of as foods that specifically help you lose weight.  Sure they’re in the category, but when we usually think of weight loss foods, these foods don’t usually hit the list and that’s too bad because they’re awesome.

Here are a few weird fat loss foods that not only help you drop a couple pounds, but are loaded with nutrition and will keep you healthy and energetic:

How’s that for the world’s shortest opener?  Anywho…

Here’s your quick list of Weird Weight Loss Foods

1) Raspberries

I love raspberries and I especially love telling my clients to eat them regularly to help them lose weight because they’re the perfect weight loss food.

They’re low in calories, rich in vitamins and phytonutrients and loaded with fiber per serving.

You can munch on ‘em by themselves, add them to a nice little fruit cocktail, or like me, add them to a homemade smoothie.

You could also add them to yogurt (don’t buy yogurts with fruit already added), or add them as a topping to oatmeal or granola.

My mouth is watering just thinking about raspberries!

2) Cashewsweight loss foods

You’ve probably been told before that almonds are weight loss foods, and it’s true because they are.

But have you ever tried cashews?  If not, you’re missing out because they’re just as healthy as cashews, but they’re just a wee bit sweeter where almonds are a bit drier tasting.

I absolutely love cashews and have ‘em most days of the week.  I munch on them with some homemade trail mix my wife makes up for me, or add them to all-natural yogurt, along with some berries, or mix ‘em in with granola.

Make sure you eat plain cashews and don’t get stuck in the thought process of “any almond is a good almond” because that’s not true.  If you buy cashews that are honey roasted, heavily salted, or otherwise altered you are turning an otherwise healthy, weight loss food, into a fat-gaining food.  Don’t do it!

Do be careful on how much you eat because it is a calorie-dense food, especially if you’re just enjoying it as a snack.  Go overboard and you can turn a great diet food into a gut bomb!

Last on the list of weird weight loss foods is…

3) Kaleeasy diet foods

I’m going to be the first to admit that I don’t really like Kale, but that wasn’t going ot stop me from adding it to the list because it’s too powerful.

Kale is loaded with nutrition and is low in calories, which makes it a perfect food to help you lose weight.

Not only will it help you lose fat, but it’s also great for your skin – by eating it, not letting it rest on your face :).  It strengthens the skin from the inside out and supplies it with nutrients it needs to protect itself from our damaging environment.

The great thing about these 3 foods is that they’re easy enough for the whole family to enjoy.

I’ve always insisted that if you can eat healthy as a family, long-lasting weight loss is easy.  Get your significant other and kids to eat like you, and watch the health of your family soar!

Sure your kids may poo-poo on the kale, but you could turn it into chips and they might enjoy it…or you could hide it in other foods 🙂

That’s it for today!
