Drop 10 Pounds This Year


Want to lose 10 pounds this year with just a few simple changes to your diet? Add these seven foods to your daily meal plan, says Prevention magazine. ' Water with lemon. A study of California women found that swapping sweetened drinks for water with lemon helped shed 3 extra pounds per year; more than 4 cups each day led to another 2-pound annual weight loss. ' High-fiber granola bars. A British study showed that eating high-fiber, high-carb granola bars for breakfast helps you burn twice as much fat later in the day. ' Flaxseed. Rich in fiber and healthy fats, flaxseed helps stabilize blood sugar so you're less likely to binge eat. ' Walnuts. An Australian study showed eating 8 to 10 walnuts a day helps you lose more weight and body fat. Their omega-3 fatty acids also help you feel fuller longer. ' Hot sauce. The capsaicin that gives chiles their heat also decreases the body's ability to store fat. ' Cinnamon. Pakistani researchers found this sweet spice lowers cholesterol and triglyceride levels while providing just a fraction of the calories found in sugar. ' Salmon. This heart-healthy fish is packed with vitamin D, which helps the appetite-regulating hormone leptin better do its job.
