(NaturalNews) While diets can't be perfect, it is still possible to lose weight by eating the right kinds of foods. A combination of good foods can actually be the key to losing stubborn excess weight quickly and naturally.

Weight Loss Foods

It would be wise to consider incorporating the following foods into a weight loss diet regimen.

1. Pistachios

Meat consumption is often decreased in weight loss diets. To substitute for protein and fats, dieters can replace meat with healthier nuts like pistachios. A snack serving of pistachios contains about 240 calories. That will provide a good amount of safe, unsaturated fats to satisfy the required daily allowance. The fiber that these nuts contain is good for sweeping away poisonous substances lurking inside the stomach. Study findings support the idea that the body mass index of a person improves as he or she continues to consume the nuts on a daily basis.

2. Mushrooms

Another good replacement for meats, certain mushrooms have been found to have the ability to cut weight if they are eaten in lieu of meat for just one meal in a day. In research conducted by the Weight Management Center of John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, significant weight loss has been recorded among those who were made to consume mushrooms. According to researchers, eating mushrooms for one year can make one drop 7 pounds.

3. Yogurt

Yogurt is another promising weight loss food, but there is no conclusive evidence yet. Researchers do have the data to show the possible correlation between weight loss and yogurt consumption though. In a study conducted by Darius Mozzafarian of Harvard University, yogurt was found to have the strongest link with weight loss and potato was found to have the lowest. Scientists don't yet know the underlying cause of this ability, but they suspect that it is the probiotic agent that's making the body release excess fats.

4. Oat Bran

Celebrities like Jennifer Lopez and Kate Middleton are using and endorsing the Dukan diet for weight loss, and the prime component of this diet is oat bran. In Europe, people have a habit of walking around or doing their daily business with oat bran in their bags. This is because they are required by the Dukan diet system to consume at least 3 tablespoons of oat bran a day.

Oat bran works typically the same way that high-fiber foods do, and that is by making someone feel easily full in the stomach and by aiding in eliminating wastes. But there is more. Oat bran can lower blood cholesterol by absorbing excess fats and making fats available for use by the body. The good thing is that you can have the same weight loss effects just by consuming a bowl of oatmeal in the morning.

5. Olive Oil

Switching to olive will also be an instant diet tool. This oil tells the brain that it has to stop producing the appetite hormones that the endocrine system produces every time hunger pangs are felt. In a University of Irvine study, it was discovered that olive oil undergoes transformation to become a compound called oleoylethanolamide, a powerful compound that can signal the brain to stop hunger-messaging processes. With olive oil in the diet, feeling full is possible even with a few bites.


A good weight loss program that includes both exercise and natural food items could work over time. They are less expensive than supplements, and they can bring about health benefits other than weight loss too.
