01/65 healthy foods that don’t actually help with weight loss
The internet is full of weight loss plans and each one of them claims to make you shed those extra kilos. While some of these plans work wonders, there are many that do not lead to any positive result.
So, before you plan to switch your black tea with green tea, here are a few things you should know. In this article, we will tell you about five such foods that are absolutely healthy but cannot help you fulfil your weight loss goals.
Full of antioxidants, green tea claims to keep you healthy. There is also little evidence that it can increase your metabolism. Green tea, when consumed with a calorie deficit diet can definitely help you burn calories but consuming green tea alone has little benefits for weight loss.
There are many studies that claim capsaicin, a compound found in hot peppers can boost metabolism. But the amount used in most studies is way more than what a normal person can eat at one time.
Consuming 1/2 teaspoon of hot pepper can help you burn around 10 calories, not as much as you thought.
04/6High protein foods
It’s true that protein takes more energy to digest than carbohydrates. But protein also has more calories than carbohydrates, which makes the matter equal. When you consume protein, you eat more calories and burn more calories.
Coconut oil has medium-chain triglyceride and it is believed that MCT is not stored well by the body and causes fat loss. But studies also say that eating medium-chain triglyceride instead of long-chain triglyceride doesn’t lead to weight loss.
06/6Apple cider vinegar
People swear by apple cider vinegar for its various health benefits. But there is yet no study, which proves that it can lead to weight loss. Plus, ACV can also cause acidity and erode your tooth enamel, if consumed without being diluted.
