Q&A: What are some healthy foods for dieting?

Question by Anonymous: What are some healthy foods for dieting?
im a pretty big kid, around 246, 5’10. ive always been keeping active by playing sports like basketball 2-3 times a week, gym 2-3 times a week, and during the summer I play some outdoor sports.. Of course in college and having to work also I find less time and motivation to hit the gym and play basketball more than I would want.. I was wondering what healthy eating tips can I try? im of southeastern Asian descent, so I always have white rice at home because its easy to make and I mix it up with whatever I have. What are some low budget healthy meals and snacks I can make at the apartment? since I cant go work out as much as I want, I wanna at least try and eat healthier.

Losing 10 lbs a month is a good and safe target. Any faster weight loss is likely to be temporary only and in most cases you regain it all.

Running, jogging, cycling, swimming, dancing, push ups, sit ups, squats, brisk walking and power walking all help for weight loss but dieting helps more.

You can always eat negative calorie foods for weight loss and below is a list of negative calorie foods that will boost your metabolism.

Negative Calorie Fruits:
apples
cranberries
grapefruit
lemons
mangoes
oranges
pineapple
raspberries
strawberries
tangerines

Negative Calorie Vegetables:
asparagus
beets
broccoli
cabbage (green)
carrots
cauliflower
celery
Chile peppers (hot)
cucumber
dandelions
endives
garden cress
garlic
green beans
lettuce
onions
papaya
radishes
spinach
turnips

These foods don’t actually have negative calories but when you eat these foods raw or slightly cooked your body burns more calories digesting and processing them than what is in the food itself.

For a healthy weight loss add some of these foods to your diet each day. Most of them are full of healthy nutrients such as fiber, antioxidants and enzymes as well as vitamins and minerals.

You can see further details in a web search for “list of negative calorie foods”.
