Top 10 Superfoods For Weight Loss and General Well Being

Here is my list of top 10 superfoods for weight loss that are all beneficial to your general well being as well. Implement these foods into your diet, cut out junk and fast foods and watch a tremendous change in your body. 
Most of these foods will help cleanse the colon and promote regularity in your body. You should be going to the washroom at least twice a day. If you aren't, your body is most likely constipated and old may have old fecal matter impacted in your body. People who flush out their colon with superfoods and/or colon cleanses find that they lose their bloated belly and pounds of fat.       
Superfood for Weight Loss # 1 - Oatmeal.  Buy steel-cut and whole oats over instant oatmeal, they contain more fiber. Oatmeal is great during breakfast time as it is full of omega-3 fatty acids, folate, and potassium. This fiber-rich superfood can also lower levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol and help keep arteries clear. Sweeten it with fruit or have it with a bit of rosemary and sea salt.   
Superfood for Weight Loss # 2 - Avocado. Introducing avocado into your diet will increase the amount of heart-healthy fats in your diet. Packed with monounsaturated fat, avocados can help lower LDL (bad fat) while raising the amount of HDL (good fat) in your body. Avocado also make an amazing dressing. Dress a kale salad with avocado, and top with tomatoes, nuts, sprouts, sea salt and a dash of lemon juice.
Superfood for Weight Loss # 3 - Spinach. Popeye's superfood will help your body to lose weight by cleansing the body of harmful toxins in the colon and give your body a boost thanks to its stores of lutein, folate, potassium, and of course, fiber.   Increasing any veggies is sure to help cleanse your colon and give your body a boost.
Superfood for Weight Loss # 4 - Flaxseed. Full of fiber, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, try topping a bowl of oatmeal or whole-grain cereal with a dash of ground flaxseed for the ultimate healthy breakfast. Other ways to eat it are to mix it into shakes and throw it into salads. 
Superfood for Weight Loss # 5 - Berries. Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, blackberries are full of fibre and antioxidants. A recent 2009 study shows that rats who ate a diet rich in blueberries lost abdominal fat and experienced other health benefits such as lowered cholesterol and improved glucose control. 
Superfood for Weight Loss # 6 - Soy.  Soy is a delicious and rich source of lean protein which is why so many vegans and vegetarians use it as a staple in their diets. Soy milk is a great addition to a bowl of oatmeal or whole-grain cereal and will keep you feeling full for a long time. Buy plain soy milk whenever possible and sweeten it yourself at home with honey or agave nectar.
Superfood for Weight Loss # 7 - Water.  Yes, even though you may not consider water a food, water is essential to life and helping you lose weight. When your body is dehydrated your liver works to retain water in your body and doesn't have the chance to focus on helping your body to burn fat. 
Constantly keep your body hydrated throughout the day. Water will also help to keep your body feeling full and flush toxins out of your body through sweat and urine. If you get hungry late at night, try drinking a glass of water - you may be feeling hungry because you're dehydrated.

Superfood for Weight Loss # 8 - Legumes. Fill up on fiber with lentils, chickpeas, and black and kidney beans. They're packed with omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, and soluble fiber.
Superfood for Weight Loss # 9 - Psyllium. Found in cereals and colon cleanses, psyllium will help even the most constipated person go to the washroom. Take 1 tablespoon in the morning with 2 large glasses of water every day until you are regular. If you still aren't going, increase your intake to a second tablespoon in the evening. Always drink lots of water when taking psyllium as it will become gelatinous in your system. Not drinking enough water with psyllium will have the opposite effect and leave your body constipated.      
Superfood for Weight Loss # 10 - Acai Berries.  The reason why we put Acai Berries in its only category is because it is literally in a class of its own for weight loss. Jam packed with antioxidants and vital nutrients, acai berries from South America have recently become all the rage. Rated as the number #1 superfood by Dr. Perricone, Acai has been linked to weight loss, improved skin, a better immune system, increased energy and overall well being.
