13 FOODS THAT HAVE BEEN SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN TO ENHANCE WEIGHT LOSS


Weight gain and obesity have become world wide problems. There are so many causes of weight gain. However, majority of it is caused as a result of our diet and physical inactivity. This therefore causes us to become overweight and obese, which predisposes us to non communicable diseases like type 2 diabetes, hypertension and stroke. 

Studies have showed that there are some foods that can aid in weight loss, as seen below.


1 Whole Flaxseed

Studies have showed that whole flaxseed helps in weight management and reduction in overweight and obese people (1). 
Whole flaxseed can be found in stores and shops. 

2 Green Tea
Green tea is the most common ingredient in weight loss products and supplements. Its wide use for weight loss has been scientifically proven and backed by research.
A recent study made an oral supplement from green tea and administered it to 100  obese men and women. They placed the participants in two groups, 50 each. One group was on a low diet and the other group took green tea in addition to the low calorie diet.

After 90 days of treatment, they observed that those who took the green tea lost more weight (14 kg) compared to those who were only on diet (5 kg). Furthermore, the BMI of those who were on green tea reduced greatly (2). 


3 coffee 
A study showed that coffee(especially dark roasted) reduces body weight in humans. They further found out that dark roast coffee is more effective at reducing body weight than light roast coffee (3). 

4 Dietary coconut oil
A study was conducted to investigate the effects of dietary coconut oil on the biochemical and anthropometric profiles of women who had abdominal obesity. 
The results of this study showed that dietary coconut oil is able to elevate high density lipoprotein (HDL) and reduces abdominal obesity in over weight women (4). 

5 Green coffee bean extract
Green coffee bean extract is used in many weight loss supplements because of its effectiveness. Green coffee bean extract helps with weight loss because it contains high amounts of chlorogenic acids that influence fat and glucose metabolism. 

One study examined the efficacy of commercial green coffee extract in reducing weight in overweight adults for a period of 22 weeks. 

At the end of the study, not only did the weights drop significantly, they also saw a reduction on body mass index and percent body fats (5).
Furthermore, green coffee bean extract combined with a low calorie diet affects lipid metabolism and fat accumulation which makes it an inexpensive weight loss method for obese and overweight people (6). 

6 Fiber rich foods
Insufficient fiber intake has been shown to be associated with excess body weight and obesity (7). Therefore, eating fiber rich foods will help in reducing body weight. 

Dr Axe's top fiber foods include avocados, berries, coconut, okra, black beans and many others. 


7 Irvingia gabonensis (Ogbono)

Those who live in west and central Africa have Irvingia gabonensis in abundance. It is commonly called bush mango, wild mango, african mango and ogbono. It is popularly known as Ogbono in Cameroon and Nigeria.

Furthermore, a study revealed that curcumin can be a potential leading compound for the development of drugs that prevent obesity(11).
