5. Black Beans

If you’re not eating black beans on a regular basis, you’re missing out on a delicious way to consume more fiber and protein, as well as lose more body fat. For one, black beans are loaded with 15 grams of fiber and protein per cup—numbers that are hard to come by with many other foods.

A study published in Obesity found that over a five-year period, increasing your daily fiber intake was associated with an almost 4% decrease in waist circumference.


6. Eggs

Scramble them up or throw a hard-boiled one on top of a salad or piece of toast, but however you choose to cook it, eggs can provide your body with amazing health and fat-burning benefits.
“For one, eggs are a great source of high-quality protein and essential nutrients, and they are particularly rich in choline—which plays a role in fat metabolism,” says Goodson. She also adds that “Eating eggs can help you feel full and satisfied, reducing the likelihood of overeating throughout the day, and that the protein in eggs has a high thermic effect, meaning it requires more energy to digest, which can support a slight increase in calorie expenditure.”

Also, one study published in Nutrition Research found that male participants who ate eggs for breakfast experienced less hunger after breakfast and consumed fewer calories throughout the day than the participants who ate a bagel for breakfast.
