Eating the right food is crucial for fat loss. While we always advocate eating an array of veggies on a daily basis, some are more powerful than others for fat loss. They contain fat-burning components. Yes, you may be surprised, but there are a number of vegetables that contain a nutritious blend of highly effective chemical mediators that shift your metabolism towards weight loss. Even when you are eating these vegetables, you are actually burning off the fat from your body, it really is a reverse effect. So, which vegetables have this amazing power of weight loss? Here we picked out what we believe to be the most effective for weight loss. Incorporate as many of these as you can into your daily eating regimen. 

 

  • Spinach,

Popeye’s favorite vegetable really has a deep meaning to it and can help you burn calories at an incredibly high rate. The green leaves are stuffed full of proteins which contribute to your muscle development. This increasing the resting metabolic rate of the body and literally replaces the fat with protein. Besides this, spinach also contains thylakoids, a chemical that staves off those cravings, contributing a major part towards effective weight loss.

There is a reason why mothers want you to eat broccoli. They may not know about the fat loss part, but broccoli has an amazing combination of some of the most nutritious elements for your body! Besides this, broccoli contains a phytonutrient called sulforaphane. This increases the levels of testosterone in the body and prevents fat storage. Its vitamin C content helps reduce cortisol levels, which could be contributing to your weight gain.

 

  • White potatoes,

Yes, white potatoes. It is controversial when you think how potatoes could actually help you lose weight. The truth is, taken in the right amounts, they contain just the right blend of nutrients to drive weight loss. Another factor is the temperature. Eating hot potatoes isn’t beneficial (but tasty, I know), even contradictory. However, when you freeze these potatoes, their starches are converted into a resistant form that your body cannot digest. Moreover, the resistant starch actually helps to promote fat oxidation and reduces your body load of fat, especially around the abdomen. If cool potatoes don’t sound tasty, you can always include them in your salad for a yummy treat.

 

  • Onions

Contain flavonoids called quercetin. This helps increase the blood flow and maintains blood glucose level by activating a special protein. It also activates certain other enzymes that help burn the stored fat and prevent new fat cells from forming. They reduce cholesterol levels of the body and accelerates the weight loss providing great cardiovascular health on the way also. Besides this, you don’t have to worry about the calories either, they are super low on them and can be included in the diet in a number of ways.

 

  • Carrots

Are full to the brim with beta carotene and vitamin A. They also contain amazing levels of fiber. The fiber helps your digestive tract and also prevent the gut from absorbing fat. This is because it binds with the fat preventing it from being absorbed. Another great thing about them is their crunchy texture. You have to chew them raw which keeps your jaw muscles working. All this is extra exercise and can contribute significantly to your weight loss. Plus, carrots contain the healthy sugar, are delicious and contain minimal calories which make them a healthy and tasty snack. Plus, carrots also suppress the hunger pangs due to their action on the brain and their action to fill your stomach with food that won’t make you fat but still gives you a full feeling.

 

  • Eggplant 

Is a low-density food, which means they have very few calories in every bite. So, simply replacing your usual foods with this vegetable can decrease your caloric intake. They contain saponin which has been shown to reduce the absorption of fat from the gut. Even drinking eggplant juice can detoxify your body, improve kidney function and cleanse your gut, allowing you to absorb less fat. The best time to drink eggplant juice is before a meal which can reduce the total calories that your body will absorb.

 

  • Asparagus 

This nutritious vegetable is high in inulin, which is a soluble fiber, research suggests that inulin acts on the brain center to suppress appetite. Plus, it fulfills the hunger. Studies suggest that 6 grams of inulin are equivalent to 260 calories of other food as far as satisfying hunger is concerned. So, it’s basically better and healthier than consuming so many calories of something else.

 

  • Cabbage 

This is one of those foods that consume a lot of energy when digested. Which ultimately reduces the net calories. Plus, it contains minimal calories itself so you are actually burning your stored fat to digest this vegetable. Eating raw cabbage, drinking cabbage soup, or boiling it and then eating the leaves, there are certainly a lot of ways that you can enjoy this delicious vegetable for weight loss.

 

  • Zucchini

Has just 17 calories per 100 grams of the vegetable. This makes it a very hunger satisfying food at a very low-calorie cost. The vegetable also increases the body’s metabolism, which helps you burn more fat at rest. A major part of this ability is contributed by its high content of vitamin A that promotes oxidation of the stored fat in your body.

 

  • Cauliflower

Contains loads of fiber. This improves digestion and prevents the absorption of fat from the gut. At the same time, it also contains omega 3 fatty acids, which are incredibly beneficial for your body. They regulate the fat stores and also increase the level of leptin, a hormone having a critical role in fat metabolism.

 

All these vegetables are great examples of healthy foods that not may help prevent weight gain, but also contribute to fat loss. We are amazed by the properties of these vegetables. Plus, they are really easy to include in your daily diet as well. Include some or all of these vegetables in your diet to accelerate your weight loss to get that dream figure that you always desired.
