Delicious Raw Superfoods to Lose Weight
Raw Vegan Chocolate in a Whole Foods DietNot all chocolate is as sugar-spiked and processed as what's available at the supermarket checkout; raw chocolate beans have been attributed to retain some fantastic benefits for mental well-being and weight loss. Raw chocolate is high in magnesium, a mineral in which 60-80% of American may be deficient; magnesium supports mood through its tryptophan content (which is converted to serotonin), as well as alertness.
Chocolate's mood-boosting properties, as well as its high nutrition content, may help curb food cravings faster, and raw chocolate has none of the sugar or caffeine of the processed kind. Raw chocolate is also extremely high in antioxidants, making it a wonderful anti-aging agent.
Raw Honey and Bee Pollen for Weight LossBee pollen may be one of the best foods to eat not only for weight loss, but for overall health. Bee pollen contains every nutrient the body needs – 96 of them! – as well as a high protein content. Its benefits include relieving PMS, enhancing the immune system, detoxifying the body, alleviating allergies, and aiding strength and endurance. Bee pollen also supports weight loss through increasing fat burning.
Honey is a favorite food of raw vegan guru Angela Stokes; raw honey is rich in enzymes and phytonutrients, and has antibacterial properties. While in general it's best to reduce intake of simple carbohydrates (such as white sugar and honey) for weight loss, raw honey's nutritional bright spots may make it an excellent substitute for refined sugars.
