If making over your diet and taking Phentermine 37.5 mg are part of your new year’s resolutions, there are a few superfoods you should add to your daily food intake. Incorporate these Harvard nutritionist-recommended foods into your diet to aid the weight loss process and enjoy better health overall. Processed and other sugary foods put a serious stranglehold on any person’s weight loss efforts.
“Diet has its influence on so many health-related factors all throughout the life cycle — all the way from infancy to elderly years — in almost every system across the body,” Teresa Fung, an adjunct professor of nutrition at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and a professor of nutrition at Simmons College in Boston, told TODAY.
Nuts are among her superfood recommendations. They provide great sources of healthy fat to keep you feeling full. Nuts are also a convenient, portable snack that contributes to lower blood pressure among other health benefits.
“Berries are very high in antioxidants, so that’s wonderful,” Fung said. They are also natural sources of sugar, unlike the processed, waistline-expanding stuff. Fung advises washing berries well since they can be coated with pesticides.
Dark, Leafy Greens
Kale, spinach, collards, bok choy, and other dark, leafy greens “have a wonderful antioxidant profile,” Fung noted, recommending at least half a cup of cooked or raw greens each day. She also recommends roasting brussel sprouts: “It’s really tasty and you don’t have to use water for it.”
Steel Cut Oats
The lack of sugar and lots of soluble fiber in steel cut oats make them a welcome addition to your breakfast table.
“It really keeps people full — it has good fiber and it does not spike people’s glucose too much,” Fung noted.
