Skinny foods! ;)

Stock up with these foods to help your body burn fat and keep you healthy from the inside out! 😀

Eggs

There has been a misconception that eating only egg whites is best, but go ahead and eat the whole thing. It tastes better, and half the protein is found in the yolk. Proteins like those found in eggs yolks stimulate the release of the hormone glucagon that aids in fat burning and actually fights off belly fat. “The egg yolk has vitamin E in it, plus will help keep you fuller longer,” says Kotsopoulos. Prep for the week by boiling half a carton of eggs to keep on hand for easy snacking.

Raw Almonds and Almond Butter

While peanut butter is packed with protein, almonds are better quality nuts that are rich in vitamin E, an antioxidant that counteracts free-radical damage. Not only are almonds good for your hair and skin, they’re also rich in magnesium and vitamin B2, which help calm nerves and combat stress. When you’re stressed out, cortisol is released in the body and causes weight gain. The B2 vitamin in almonds helps with that while boosting your energy levels.

Parmesan Cheese

It might sound too good to be true, but having a brick of Parmesan cheese around can be an asset to shedding pounds. Use a vegetable peeler and slice the Parmesan on whole-grain crackers. And it doesn’t only aid in building stronger bones! Parmesan is one of the most flavorful cheeses so you only need about a tablespoon (22 calories) for a satisfying snack.

Yogurt

A top belly-flattening favourite, yogurt is stacked with probiotics, bacteria that may help reduce the amount of fat your body absorbs. Pick a Greek yogurt over the regular kind.  Greek nonfat or low-fat versions contain only half as much sodium as regular yogurt — and no artificial sweeteners or preservatives.
