DHAKA: Here, we’ve got a week’s worth of tasty menus, each containing at least one of 10 superfoods proven to help make the pounds disappear fast. The edible heroes allow you to indulge daily and still shed. See what the research shows, then pile them on your plate to lose weight!
APPLES: The fruit’s fiber is like a bouncer for unwanted pounds: It helps shuttle some fat from other foods out of your body.
EGGS: The breakfast (or lunch or dinner) of weight loss champions! Eggs have choline, a compound that helps block fat absorption.
KIWIFRUIT: They’re fuzzy, but the pounds-off science behind them isn’t: Kiwi’s ample vitamin C helps form carnitine, a compound that plays an essential role in burning fat during exercise.
OLIVE OIL: Get your DNA in on the pounds-off act! Monounsaturated fats in olive oil may switch on genes related to fat blasting.
SWEET POTATOES: Like lentils, these tubers contain RS, which may up production of compounds that signal your brain to stop eating.
YOGURT: High levels of calcium in regular and Greek yogurt slow production of cortisol, a hormone linked with belly flab.
Follow our one-week menu, or mix and match your faves!
