7 FOODS TO LOSE WEIGHT & RETAIN MUSCLE

Eggs


Affordable and incredibly versatile, eggs are a great source of protein and healthy fats to help you burn fat without tapping into your muscle stores.


Turkey and chicken



To prevent muscle loss, include lean meats, like chicken and turkey, into your diet. They’re both excellent sources of protein to help you feel full without loading you up with unnecessary calories. What’s more, they contain conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which studies have shown can reduce fat and increase metabolism.


Green tea


According to Dr. Axe, drinking green tea can help to boost metabolism, which in turn helps your body burn calories after your workout. Matcha green tea is known to have some fat-burning properties. So, consider a cup of this powdered green tea as part of your morning ritual.


Berries


Compared to one large banana, one cup of blueberries contains fewer calories and more fiber – two great food factors when you’re trying to lose weight.


Almond butter


In general, nut butter help to stave off hunger, while supplying you with healthy sources of both fat and protein. Almond butter is particularly good for you as it's rich in monounsaturated fats.


Grapefruits


Grapefruits contain lots of fiber, which helps to both reduce blood sugar spikes and regulate appetite, both of which are extremely helpful to fend off cravings and mindless snacking. In addition to its high-fiber profile, grapefruits contain active ingredients that can boost metabolism, too.


Probiotic foods



Probiotic foods include yogurt, kefir, kombucha, cultured veggies, and more. These foods can influence the digestive system and enhance weight loss efforts while also protecting an individual from obesity.
