Best Summer Superfoods for Weight Loss

You have so many options; losing weight can actually be easy


Superfoods are not a separate category, according to the American Heart Association. This is a marketing term used to describe foods that contain a huge amount of nutrients, few calories, little or no sugar and salt, fiber and other health boosters.[slideshow:86117]

Most definitions will describe them as being rich sources of antioxidants, which protect our body cells from damaging, thus preventing illnesses, and in nutrients lowering bad cholesterol and the risk of heart problems, cancer and other diseases. 

Some foods have the power to improve mood, energy, metabolism and vision even when you consume them in small doses. Others are especially helpful in achieving weight loss goals during the summer.

The general rule to eat healthy and cheap is to buy fruits and vegetables that are in season. Luckily, there are plenty of options between July and September – from everyone’s favorite strawberries to the little known purple carrots. Fish is also a great go-to food but you have to be careful when and where you buy it.
