Mar 24, 2016 06:30 AM EDT | By Chandan Das


It is ironical that seductive foods lure you most when you are working to lose weight. However, one hardly realizes that several of the "bad" or "tempting" foods are actually not all that harmful while you are trying to lose weight. Below is a list of some seductive foods that can work wonders and help you to lose those extra pounds.

More Proteins

It has been found that eating more protein may actually be the best long-term approach to reducing belly fat. Protein reduces cravings by 60 percent, boost metabolism by anything between 80 and 100 calories daily and also prompts you to eat 441 fewer calories every day, Authority Nutrition reported. Therefore, if you are struggling with overweight, adding more protein to your diet can possibly be the single most effectual change you can initiate. Aside from helping to lose weight, protein also prevents regaining weight.


For numerous years, health experts have been advising people to consume less red meat. On the contrary, steak always does not result in a broad waistline. A lean cut of beef hardly contains enough saturated fat compared to a skinless chicken breast of the same size. Moreover, steak is loaded with protein and can keep one feeling full longer. However, you need to limit the intake of steak in order to obtain enough protein with less fat. Ideally, choose tenderloin, sirloin, or other extra-lean cuts, Web MD suggests.


Pork has a bad reputation and the term is usually used to denote all types of excess. As a result, dieters usually stay away from it. Nevertheless, pork has changed over the years and the pork tenderloin cuts available today are 31 percent leaner compared to what they were two decades back. As a result, this white meat is a lean source of protein offering similar benefits as lean beef.


As far as healthy eating is concerned, there is a raging debate over consuming eggs. However, findings of latest studies suggest that taking an egg daily is safe as well as nutritious for most adults. Eating an egg for breakfast, helps boost the chances of losing weight. The reason is simple - eggs are full of protein, which is not digested soon. When you eat protein in the morning, it helps to keep the stomach full, so one eats less during the remaining part of the day.


Most people avoid pasta while dieting. However, it would be better if they switch to whole grain and keep their portions small. Studies suggest that people consuming several servings of whole-grain foods daily are more have more chances of slimming down and maintaining healthy weights. One study suggests eating whole grains instead of refined grains can also help burn belly fat.


Often, dieters cut calories by not taking calcium-rich dairy foods. However, some studies suggest that this is a wrong approach. According to one theory, the body burns additional fat when it receives sufficient calcium. Hence, eating low-fat cheese, yogurt and milk may contribute to weight loss.
