Fill up on these great superfoods and watch the weight drop

If you’re looking for the best way to supercharge your low carb diet, focus on these TOP 14 SUPERFOODS as recommended by Dr. Steven Pratt’s book, Super Foods Rx and my books. It’s easy and delicious to include these superfoods in your weight loss diet plan:

  • TURKEY
  • Turkey has 30% fewer calories and 50% less fat than beef. Similar
    benefits are seen with skinless chicken breast

  • TOMATOES
  • Tomatoes are rich in Vitamin C and helps to naturally produce carnitine, an amino acid that helps you burn fat.You can also consider watermelon, pink grapefruit, Japanese persimmons, red-fleshed papaya and strawberry guava, which helps to lower insulin. Gazpacho is a great way to use tomatoes and get all the benefits.

  • BLUEBERRIES
  • These little packages are phytonutrient powerhouses. Consider raspberries,
    cherries, purple grapes
    (I freeze them and pop one in my mouth for a mini grapecicle). Blueberry muffins will be a favorite of your family.

  • SPINACH
  • Another fiber superfood that also contains iron for those with low ferritin levels. Options include kale, collards, Swiss chard, turnip greens,
    bok choy and romaine lettuce.

    Get Hooked on Fish for Weight Loss

    I’m hooked on fish…any kind. Orange roughy, salmon, shrimp, crab…you
    name it, I’ve got my fork in it. I’ve journeyed to foreign markets in
    downtown LA just to select an entire fish to roast with sweet fennel
    and onions inside. But you don’t have to go far to enjoy the health
    benefits of just one serving of fish a week. It’s as close as your local
    supermarket.

    Fish is one of the healthiest sources of protein and omega fatty acids
    IF you avoid shark, king markerel, swordfish and tilefish, which may
    contain mercury. Omega fatty acids can lower your risk of heart disease
    and help keep your insulin levels in check.

    Fish is low in calories as well and is an excellent source of vitamins,
    potassium and other minerals. Since fish contain lots of “good fats”
    it is also low in cholesterol. So which fish should be swimming in your
    food chain?

    • Lake Trout
    • Albacore Tuna
    • Salmon
    • Herring
    • Sardines
    • Crab
    • Lobster
    • Shrimp
    • White fish such as Sole, Orange Roughy, Cod, Sea Bass

    And it’s not necessary to gorge on fish to get the benefits. Just 5
    ounces three times a month is enough to decrease your risk of a stroke
    by 43%. And here’s an extra hint: The fat just under the skin of fish is where most of the toxic chemicals can be found, so if in doubt, deskin your fish for extra protection.
