Here is a run down of the top five superfoods that are now recognized for being very helpful for weight loss.

1. Beans

Beans are a resistant starch. Which means that they are very good for stabilizing blood sugar. Beans contain compounds called fatty acid butyrate that help the body burn fat more efficiently. It is ideal to consume them in a bean salad, as a burger patty or in chili.

2. Pine Nuts

Pine nuts are a powerful appetite suppressant that contain linoleic acid. This naturally occurring fatty acid stimulates the brain to produce hormones that give your body the message that the stomach is full.

3. Fennel Tea

Fennel tea can be made from fennel seeds that you buy in a grocery store. Fennel is used as a diet loss aid in order to reduce cravings. It also helps burn fat in the body and reduce the size of cells storing fat. Drinking fennel tea at night will help stop you craving a big breakfast or greasy or salty foods in the morning.

4. Saffron 

Saffron is a natural spice that helps reduce hunger cravings.
