It looks like an old dream of all women “to eat and still lose weight” can finally come true. We present you 9 fresh examples of foods for a fast weight loss.

The secret to losing weight with the help of not the most obvious set of products is to choose those that:

Help burn fat

Normalize metabolism

Quickly satiate the body

We picked for you the most effective and accessible examples.


This autumn vegetable (though, formally, it is a berry) is rich in fiber, vitamin T and carotenoids that give it its orange color.

The latter act as antioxidants and the vegie altogether provides the following health and weight loss benefits:

  • protects the body from harmful free radicals
  • helps slow down the aging process of cells (another secret of eternal youth!)
  • helps speed up metabolism
  • enhances the digestion of food
  • cleanses of toxins.

Pumpkin has another very important feature for weight loss – its very low caloric value of 25 calories per 100 grams only! Pay special attention to the pumpkin seeds. This is a real mine of magnesium and protein and a great ally for those, who struggle with insomnia.


Avocado is a fruit flip-flopper.

Fruits are usually low in calories and rich in carbs. However, things go vice-versa with the “alligator pear”. It contains little carbohydrates, and has a high energy value at the same time. But this does not contradict its concept of extra kilos “destroyer”.


A single avocado provides a phenomenal feeling of satiety that can help you dramatically “save” on your dinner – primarily in calories.

“The fat-richest fruit in the world” is easy to digest and contains a large amount of nutrients.

This allows you replace a whole group of food with avocado, which is very valuable for those on a diet, who have to count not only disappearing calories, but also incoming vitamins.

  • TUNA

Americans, obsessed with weight loss, were the first to take canned tuna and make it a base of a rather boring, but effective express weight loss diet:

  • nine cans of fish for three days (in natural juice, not in oil!)
  • a variety of vegetables
  • a couple of fruit for snacking.

Tuna contains very little fat, lots of protein, and almost every amino acid that an active human being requires for daily activities.

That’s why fastidious bodybuilders have a particularly gentle feeling for this fish.


Unusual bright chard leaves are among favorite salad ingredients in Europe.

In fact, it is nothing more than tops of a certain beet variety. Purple and yellow pigments of this plant possess not only a strong anti-inflammatory, but also a cleansing effect. People on a weight loss program may find chard attractive for its low energy value and the absence of cholesterol.


Orange light-line continues with persimmon, which is consistently among the top three healthy fruits on a par with citrus.

Not by chance, it is a great option for fasting day during the season:

  • helps control weight,
  • cleanses your body of accumulated toxins,
  • calms your nerves,
  • gives freshness to your skin.

Another, more sparing alternative is to eat 1-2 persimmons instead of one meal (better choose breakfast or dinner). Coffee and milk should be avoided when you stick to a weight loss diet on persimmon.

Note, this “sun berry” is a very sweet fruit, so it is contraindicated for diabetics


Western nutritionists often recommend replacing potatoes with turnip in your dishes. By their nutritional value and the amount of protein, both root crops are approximately equal and satisfy hunger equally well.

However, in contrast to its “relative”, turnips have much less carbs and practically no starch, so it is a safer option for a successful weight loss. Besides, this fairy vegetable contains high levels of sulfur, which is extremely important for:

Energy production
Fat burning

The Egyptians claimed that mushrooms bring immortality, French changed them into jewelry, and the British, as always, were making experiments with them. Volunteers were eating mushrooms instead of meat four times a week, and managed to get rid of 4 to 9 kg in a month.

In some countries, they are called “forest beef steak”. The amount of amino acids in these mushrooms, grown mainly on plantations, is not inferior to meat dishes, but the calorie content is several times lower: 27 kcal per 100 g.

Mushrooms are present in many recipes for weight loss by the legendary nutritionist Michel Montignac.


For the record: give preference to tender young mushrooms, nutritious mushroom caps, instead of stipes, and cut them as fine as you can.

  • BEET

Beetroot is a product with a secret. 

One small and humble beet contains a record amount of betaine. It oxidizes (in other words “puts on a strict diet”) your fat cell, which subsequently becomes thinner and, losing connection with the blood vessels, dies.

Besides, betaine:

  • increases your metabolic rate
  • activates metabolic processes
  • helps reduce weight
  • prevents weight gain by blocking the formation of new fat cells.

No doubt, it’s a dream-product that we had at hand all this time without realizing it!


Nutritionists claim: simply add grapefruit to your daily diet and lose up to two kilos in 2 weeks.

No miracles! Everything is simple. Grapefruit lowers insulin levels, which allows you control your appetite. This helps you refuse high-calorie food and your effectively lose weight.


Naringin found in grapefruit also speeds up your metabolism, yet not so intensively that you start “disappearing in front of your eyes”. So you still have to balance the rest of your daily meals, if you aim at losing weight fast.
