More Supermarket Shopping Tips
As a continution from my previous post about getting the most our of your supermarket shopping for weight loss, here are some more shopping tips:
1) Cinnamon - This is a great spice to add to oatmeal, whole grain toast or any baked goods you make this holiday season. One study showed that just a quarter of a teaspoon of cinnamon a day can help lower blood sugar, cholesterol and triglyceride levels in people with type 2 diabetes.
2) Tofu - Okay, you may not like the consistency, but adding it to soups, stews and other recipes can help to reduce your hunger through out the day and, in the long run, help you to eat less. Besides that, it's healthy!
3) Nuts - Eating a handful of just about any kind of nut can also help you to lose weight by reducing your urge to snack. Almonds are very healthy as well as walnuts which contain omega-3 fatty acids and pecans which can help reduce risk of heart disease. Stick to raw nuts if you can.
4) Hot Red Pepper - Eating a bowl of spicy chili regularly can help you lose weight. Apparently, the capsaicin which naturally occurs in red peppers is a natural appetite suppressant.
