Weight Loss Power Foods

It's no surprise that these hearty legumes are good for you. But when was the last time you ate any?

Why they're healthy: Boiled lentils have about 16 grams of belly-filling fiber in every cup. Cooked lentils also contain 27 percent more folate per cup than cooked spinach does. And if you eat colored lentils—black, orange, red—there are compounds in the seed hulls that contain disease-fighting antioxidants.

How to eat them: Use lentils as a bed for chicken, fish, or beef—they make a great substitute for rice or pasta.
How to Prepare:
Pour 4 cups of chicken stock into a large pot. Add 1 cup of red or brown lentils and a half cup each of onion and carrot chunks, along with 3 teaspoons of minced garlic. Bring everything to a boil and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook the lentils until they're tender, about 20 minutes. Remove the lentils from the heat, add a splash of red-wine vinegar, and serve. Happy eating & weight loss.

This is the first in a series of weight loss power foods that I will be bringing to you in the next few days. These will be foods that have been proven to enhance your weight loss, for one reason or another. If you incorporate these foods into your daily diet, you will see results.
