My Top 9 Superfoods For Looking Good, Feeling Great & Losing Weight
Lose weight! Boost immunity! Improve your love life! If there were a pharmaceutical drug that did all three, there’d be a stampede to the pharmacy, but for now, no such pill exists.
My advice? Build your own — not a pill, but a plan — an eating strategy that packs power, nutritional value and a host of benefits into every bite.
Where to start? Simply load up on the “Superfine 9,” nine of the most nutritionally valuable foods you can buy.
What makes them super? Few calories, low in sugar and salt, plus lots of soluble fiber, nutrients, and health-boosting phytochemicals. Even better: not a drop of guilt should you over-indulge! If you’re interested in looking great, feeling great, and weighing less, the real “magic pill” can be found in the organic produce aisle and at the seafood counter.
Here my nine favorite superfoods to get you started on a healthy, happy life.
Wild salmon is a rich source of protein, vitamin D, selenium, B2, B3, B6, B12 and those all-important omega-3 fatty acids. So exactly what can wild salmon offer you? Quite a bit, including protection from cancer, cardiovascular problems, macular degeneration, depression and cognitive decline – that’s a lot of pluses in a pretty compact package. The best salmon to buy? Wild caught, Alaskan salmon, which routinely ranks low in contaminants and high in nutrients. Wild salmon’s benefits start to kick in at about two servings a week, so there’s no need to overdo it.
