Top 10 Superfoods to Eat with Phentermine

It sometimes seems like a new superfood is discovered every day, promising you healthier skin, lower cholesterol, and cancer-fighting properties all in one little pink berry.

It can be challenging to find your way through all of the information and know which foods are good and for what reason, but there are some surprisingly simple ways to aid weight loss just by eating the right foods.

Here, we round up the top 10 superfoods to help you make the most of your weight loss journey with phentermine!

1. Low Fat (or Non-Fat) Yogurt

Superfoods Yogurt

Due to their high calcium content, low-fat dairy products like skim milk and low-fat yogurt are top of the list of superfoods, according to Michael Zemel, Ph.D.

In a study of obese adults, those who consumed a total of 1100 milligrams of calcium (three servings of light yogurt) per day lost 22% more weight and 61% more body fat than those on a low-dairy diet.

Zemel explains that a high-calcium diet stops the production of calcitriol, a hormone that ‘tells’ the body to generate fat.

Yogurt is great for breakfast, or use it instead of mayonnaise in a chicken or potato salad.

2. Beans

Beans, lentils, and other legumes are a weight loss superfood because they help stabilize your blood sugar.

Due to their high fiber content, these foods are digested slowly, which reduces recurrent hunger and helps to prevent cravings.

Adding half a cup of beans to any of your favorite dishes boosts fiber and resistant starch, both promoting weight loss.

Kidney beans, for example, contain nearly 2 grams of this slimming carb per half-cup, while white beans have a whopping 4 grams.

Protein-rich black beans and edamame (whole soybeans) are also weight loss superfoods since your body burns more calories digesting protein. Beans work well as a side dish or added to soups, stews, and egg dishes.

3.  Brown Rice

This superfood is low in calories but high in fiber to keep you full all day long. Plus, just a half-cup serving of brown rice contains 1.7 grams of resistant starch, a healthy carb that burns fat and boosts metabolism.

Given its relatively-low calorie (energy) content per volume, brown rice is considered a “low energy density food.”

One study found that women who ate a high energy density diet gained three times as much weight over six years compared to women on a low energy density diet.

This makes sense given that eating a lot of lower calories foods (like watermelon or green beans) leads to lower overall calorie intake than eating many high-calorie foods (like peanut butter or granola). 

Add brown rice to vegetables and lean meats for a filling, healthy meal.

4. Eggs

Top Superfoods Eggs

Eggs make the list because they are nutritious, economical, and are a great source of protein.

Plus, studies have shown that eating eggs for breakfast can help you consume fewer calories during the day and lose weight.

Despite popular belief, it’s not just egg whites that provide nutritional value. The white provides a powerful protein punch, but the egg yolks have many beneficial vitamins.

For example, the yellow part contains choline, a compound known to help block fat absorption. Eggs are also incredibly versatile.

Whether poached, boiled, or scrambled in an omelet or a frittata, they can be eaten anytime for a satisfying superfood hit.

5. Oats

Oats are another great superfood choice for breakfast. They are low in calories but high in protein and fiber to help you feel full for longer.

Just half a cup contains 4.6 grams of resistant starch to burn fat and boost your metabolism.

The steel-cut and rolled varieties are the most fiber-packed, with 5 grams per serving, making them more filling, but instant oats still contain 3 to 4 grams of fiber per serving.

Swap your sugary cereal for a bowl of oats with nuts and berries for extra nutrition. Not only are these foods delicious and quite versatile, but they really do wonders for your body.

The old saying holds true: “you are what you eat,” so you may as well be fabulous! Prepare hot oats with skim milk, or use Greek yogurt in your overnight oats, to give your breakfast a kick of protein.

Oats are also a great addition to smoothies or as a topping for yogurt to add a little texture and fiber.

6. Almonds

Whether you prefer pistachios, walnuts, almonds, or pecans, an ounce a day of nuts gives you the perfect portion of protein, fiber, and healthy fats.

Almonds, in particular, are considered a superfood due to their versatility and strong nutritional profile.

For example, unsweetened almond milk is good for weight loss because it has just 30 calories per cup compared to the 90-100 calories in a standard glass of nonfat cow milk.

Adding some unsweetened almond butter to your toast may also prove beneficial. A study by the University of Toronto found that people who ate almonds with bread experienced fewer blood sugar surges than those who ate only bread.

More, a recent study showed that dieters who ate almonds daily lost more body fat and 62% more weight than those who didn’t.

Almonds – and nuts in general – make an excellent snack on their own, but they’re also a great topper since they can add texture and flavor to salads, side dishes, and hot cereals.

7. Green Tea

Green tea is the ultimate beverage for weight loss success. Like water, the fluid volume of green tea helps hydrate and satiate you to fill up and lose pounds.

Plus, the antioxidant polyphenol found in green tea also promotes a faster breakdown of fatty acids, facilitating faster fat burn and increasing overall calorie burn.

To that end, one study found that five cups a day could help you lose twice as much weight, especially around your middle!

If you don’t like the taste of green tea, mix it with a bit of black, mint, or lemon tea for a more varied flavor. While taking phentermine, opt for decaf or herbal teas to keep caffeine intake low.

8. Grapefruit

Top Superfoods To Eat With Phentermine Grapefruit

Many fruits like apples, pears, bananas, berries, and watermelons all have superfood properties, but grapefruit is especially “super” due to its weight loss potential.

Some people claim that eating half a grapefruit before each meal can help you lose up to a pound a week, even if you change nothing else about your diet.

This is because a compound found in grapefruit can lower insulin, a known fat-storage hormone, in turn leading to weight loss; plus, it’s at least 90% water, so it can fill you up and make you eat less.

Eat your grapefruit instead of drinking it since many grapefruit “juices” are actually flavored sugar water with only a touch of real juice.

9. Avocado

Avocados’ high fat and calorie content put some people off, but their fats make them such a superfood. 

The green fruits contain heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs) that help lower LDL (bad cholesterol) and total cholesterol.

MUFAs also improve blood sugar control, which promotes feelings of fullness, helps you lose weight, and may help you lose more inches off your waist.

Finally, avocados are also high in fiber and protein and are mixed into a salad or a sandwich instead of mayonnaise. They are high in calories, so eating just a quarter at a time is best.

10. Salmon

Not only do the omega-3 fatty acids in salmon and other cold-water fish keep your heart healthy, but they also help you shrink your waist.

Eating a diet high in omega-3s improves insulin sensitivity, which allows you to build muscle and decrease belly fat. Salmon is also low in calories, with only 200 calories per 3-ounce serving.

This visually pleasing superfood has lots of protein, iron, and very little saturated fat.

You can grill or bake it with lemon and pepper, top it with salsa or another low-fat sauce, or serve it with a green salad.
