July 11, 2011 - PRLog -- The Battle of the bulge! That's what millions of Americans wake up to everyday across the nation. Unfortunately many are losing the battle. At least 90% of Americans have admitted to dieting at one point in their life.

The obesity rate is on a steady climb over the past ten years, but not contributed by the fact that there are hundreds of diet fad and tricks out there. Well when it comes to gaining weight scientists have simplified what makes up gain weight, many of the get slim quick diets have a horrible record for keeping the weight off long term, with up to 75% off people gaining the weight back within a year.

However Green Bean Buddy has compiled a list of tested foods that are proven to help not only lose weight but help to keep the weight off. They also give you the scientific reasoning behind the foods benefits.


An apple a day not only keep the doctor away…

   Apples are a good source of dietary fiber. Dietary fiber not only contributes to a healthy digestive system and reduced cholesterol, but it also benefits smart eaters by yielding no calories while keeping them satisfied.

   And there’s something else about the fruit that might help you feel full. A study in the journal “Appetite” found that when women added either three apples or three pears to their daily meals, they lost more weight than people who added three oat cookies to their diets — even though the fruit and the cookies contained the exact same amount of dietary fiber.

According to Alan Aragon, a nutritionist and author of “Girth Control: The Science of Fat Loss & Muscle Gain,” crunchy foods in particular can trick a person into feeling fuller. The act of chewing may send satiety signals to your body, he says, making you think you’ve eaten more than you really have and keeping hunger at bay."


What you think I’m nuts? well your right….

  " If you’re looking for a tasty midday snack, a handful of almonds are a well-regarded option. A study in 2009 in “The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition” found that women who ate nuts at least two times a week were more successful at keeping weight off than those who didn’t eat this food."

  " One particular favorite among some nutritionists is almonds, says Aragon. One ounce of this food contains only 167 calories, plus it packs roughly 6 g of protein and 3 g of fiber, both nutrients that can make you feel full. Furthermore, like apples, almonds are crunchy and require a lot of chewing, so they, too, can make you feel like you’ve eaten more than you actually did and keep you fuller longer."

Green Bean Buddy goes on to name three more super foods that will have you staying on track with your new years resolutions that usually seem to fade around this time of year. The site administrator states that the word "Diet" is a scary word that usually has people shying away because of the bad memories of the failed attempts and the hunger pains involved. The proper outlook should be a simple lifestyle change.

"These 5  wholesome foods will not work on there own they are just merely kick-starters and proven winners in the dietary war. However these foods combined with a routine cardio workout will have you on the way to a  great start to your new lifestyle."
