Eat This and Never Diet

Laura Jeffers, a Registered Dietician from The Cleveland Clinic joined us with the foods you’ll need to slim down this summer!

Take a look:

  • Garlic: This herb does more than just give meals extra flavor and scent—it can also help keep your tummy flat through its naturally occurring chemical allicin, says registered dietitian and Nutritious Life founder Keri Glassman. “Allicin kills off harmful bacteria in your digestive tract to keep your gut healthy and functioning, which means less bloat.”
  • Beans: When you’re craving carbs, look no further than the legume family, says registered dietitian and food and nutrition consultant Rachel Begun. Beans are unique in that they offer significant amounts of both fiber and protein in one package — one cup of black beans has a whopping 17 grams of fiber and 14 grams of protein.
  • Seaweed: Perhaps we should take tips from the Japanese, whose country has one of the lowest obesity rates in the world, says registered dietitian and Appetite for Health cofounder Julie Upton. One of their staples is wakame, a type of nutrient- and protein-rich seaweed. Compounds isolated from wakame, [known as] fucoxanthin, have been shown to help increase fat burning in animal model studies says Upton.
  • Jalapenos: Good news for those who like it hot. Jalapeno peppers contain an antioxidant called capsaicin, which acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory and metabolism booster, says Glassman Some studies have found that people who eat pepper-packed meals feel less hungry and burn more calories later.
  • White Potatoes: Who said all white foods are off-limits? White potatoes are actually a slimming food, says Glassman. The reason: They’re full of rich resistant starch, a compound that ferments in the gut and creates butyrate, a fatty acid that may spur your body to burn more fat.
