2. Avoid Processed Junk Food (Eat Real Food Instead);All the processed junk foods in the diet are the biggest reason the world is fatter and sicker than ever before.These foods have been engineered to be "hyper-rewarding," so they trick our brains into eating more than we need, even leading to addiction in some people.They are also low in fiber, protein and micronutrients (empty calories), but high in unhealthy ingredients like added sugar and refined grains.
3. Eat Fatty Fish;Pretty much everyone agrees that fish is healthy.This is particularly true of fatty fish, like salmon, which is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids and various other nutrients.Studies show that people who eat the most fish have a lower risk of all sorts of diseases, including heart disease, dementia and depression.
4. Eat Nuts;Despite being high in fat, nuts are incredibly nutritious and healthy.They are loaded with magnesium, vitamin E, fiber and various other nutrients.Studies show that nuts can help you lose weight, and may help fight type 2 diabetes and heart disease.Additionally, about 10-15% of the calories in nuts aren't even absorbed into the body, and some evidence suggests that they can boost metabolism.In one study, almonds were shown to increase weight loss by 62% compared to complex carbohydrate.
5. Drink Coffee; Coffee is actually very healthy.Coffee is high in antioxidants, and studies show that coffee drinkers live longer, and have a reduced risk of type 2 diabetes, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's and numerous other diseases.
6. Drink Some Water (Especially Before Meals); Drinking enough water can have numerous benefits.One important factor, is that it can help boost the amount of calories you burn.

This can amount to 96 additional calories burned if you drink 2 liters (67 oz) of water per day.The best time to drink water is half an hour before meals. One study showed that half a liter of water, 30 minutes before each meal, increased weight loss by 44%.
7. Eat Eggs, and Don't Throw Away The Yolk; Whole eggs are so nutritious that they're often referred to as "nature's multivitamin." It is a myth that eggs are bad for you because of the cholesterol. Studies show that they have no effect on blood cholesterol in the majority of people. Additionally, a massive review study that included 263,938 individuals found that egg consumption had no association with the risk of heart disease.
8. Make use of tomato; Tomato is a superstar in the fruit and veggie pantheon. Tomatoes contain lycopene, a powerful cancer fighter. They’re also rich in vitamin C. The good news is that cooked tomatoes are also nutritious, so use them in pasta, soups and casseroles, as well as in salads. The British Thoracic Society says that tomatoes and apples can reduce your risk of asthma and chronic lung diseases. Both contain the antioxidant quercetin. To enjoy the benefits, eat five apples a week or a tomato every other day.
9. Eat Garlic, onions, spring onions and leeks; These contain stuff that’s good for you. A study at the Child’s Health Institute in Cape Town found that eating raw garlic helped fight serious childhood infections. Heat destroys these properties, so eat yours raw, wash it down with fruit juice or, if you’re a sissy, have it in tablet form.
10. Folic acid; Folic acid should be taken regularly by all pregnant mums and people with a low immunity to disease. Folic acid prevents spina bifida in unborn babies and can play a role in cancer prevention. It is found in green leafy vegetables, liver, fruit and bran.
11. Berries for your belly; Blueberries, strawberries and raspberries contain plant nutrients known as anthocyanidins, which are powerful antioxidants. Blueberries rival grapes in concentrations of resveratrol – the antioxidant compound found in red wine that has assumed near mythological proportions. Resveratrol is believed to help protect against heart disease and cancer.
12. GI, Jane. Carbohydrates with a high glycaemic index, such as bread, sugar, honey and grain-based food will give instant energy and accelerate your metabolism. If you’re trying to burn fat, stick to beans, rice, pasta, lentils, peas, soya beans and oat bran, all of which have a low GI count.
