Skinny FoodsI have great news and (potentially) bad news for you today. It really depends on what you eat and if you’ve been following the so-called ‘health experts’ promises about a certain food or diet.

First, the great news. I’m going to show you how to eat more food so that you feel full and have more energy all day long. It’s easy. You just need to eat these 7 super, nutritious and delicious foods.

More good news…I’m not going to tell you that broccoli and carrots are good for your health. You already know that! Instead, I’m going to give you 7 foods that you WANT to eat…that will also help you stay lean. How do you like the sound of that?

1) Almond Butter

Yep, a good old spoonful of almond butter is delicious and helps keep you happy, full, and full of energy. BUT make sure the ingredients include only almonds and sea salt at most. Avoid all nut butters with vegetable and hydrated palm oils or added sugar (like cane syrup). Some supermarkets turn almond butter from a healthy food to a real bad food with it’s use of artificial ingredients. So be careful and pay attention to the ingredients. Other good butter include Cashew nuts and peanuts.

2) Avocado

Avocado eaters are slimmer, according to registered dietician Melissa Halas-Liang, because avocados deliver the filling triple-threat combo of water, fiber, and healthy fats. Swap it in place of butter or mayonnaise. or make an assume caca choc avocado mouse, yummy!

3) Protein

According to legendary fat loss researcher, Dr. Arne Astrup, animal protein requires more metabolic digestion calories, so you’ll be leaner when your meals include 20-40 grams of protein. And these days there are plenty of delicious protein powders, like the ones I use: Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard approx 1-2 times a day in addition to a healthy balanced diet.

4) Raspberries or Blueberries

These delicious little suckers (especially when frozen) pack a lot of fiber and satisfy your sweet tooth. I’ll show you a great way to combine them with many of the other ingredients here to make amazing snacks.

5) Coconut Oil & Coconut Butter

It’s not just coconut water that is healthy for you. Using coconut oil and even coconut butter are great ways to stay full (they are full of healthy fats that steady your energy levels all day long).

6) Eggs

A famous nutrition study once found that eating eggs, rather than a bagel, was the best breakfast choice. Eggs deliver more protein and keep you full much longer, without the carb-crash of a bagel. There are no essential nutrients in a bagel that you can’t get from something better.

7) Potatoes (YES, potatoes!)

According to a superfood nutrition website, potatoes are 3 times as filling as a slice of white bread and are also rich in something called Resistant Starch, which helps your body burn fat.

What a great list! But there’s still more good news. Here’s how to use these foods in a daily fat burning plan:

A) The All-Day Energy Shake (or ‘Milk for my Cereal’)

– 8 oz water
– 4 ice cubes
– 1-2 scoops of protein powder
– 1 tablespoon almond butter
– 1/4 cup berries
– 1/2 avocado
– 2 handfuls of baby spinach (you can’t taste it, trust me!)

I often pour this thick shake over a bowl of walnuts and frozen cherries as my morning “cereal”. Much better than cornflakes. It’s great!

2) The Coconut-Almond Butter Sandwich

Spread 2 tablespoons of almond butter over a slice of whole bran or multi seeded bread and cover the almond butter in fresh blueberries. I’ll eat a few of these with a cup of Green Tea to start the day (when I’m not having my ‘cereal’).

3) The Anti-Cookie Monster Snack

Eat a tablespoon of almond butter with some apple slices as a mid-day snack or as a dessert. This filling combo will help you avoid becoming the ‘after-work Cookie Monster’.

PS – Still struggling? Do this…

1) Set BIG Goals – “Your ability to set goals and to make plans for their accomplishment is the master skill of success.” – Brian Tracy

2) Seek & Move – Seek out positive people, environments, and experiences. Life is too short for negativity and hurt. Cut the cord quickly and move on to a better life

3) Believe – No matter how much you might feel like you are struggling, never give up. Never ever ever give in. Keep moving towards your vision. Never stand still. Believe in yourself.
