Weight Loss by Acupuncture or Superfoods 2

Continuing Superfoods for Weight Loss -=≡Σ(((⊃゚∀゚)つ

Goji Berries with oatmeal,
soy yogurt, agave nectar
6. Goji Berries
These chewy, tart berries have a hunger-curbing edge over other fruit: 18 amino acids, which make them a surprising source of protein. Snack on them mid afternoon to stay satisfied until dinner. The calorie cost? Only 35 per tablespoon.

Mix1/4 cup of the dried berries (from health food stores) with 1/4 cup raisins and 1/4 cup walnuts for a nourishing trail mix. Or for dessert, pour 1/4 cup boiling water into a bowl with 2 tbsp dried berries; let sit 10 minutes. Drain, then spoon over 1/2 cup low fat vanilla frozen yogurt.
Goji Berries are known as Kuko seeds in Japan
The functions are Nourishes and tonifies* the Liver and Kidneys, Benefits the essence and brightens the eyes, and Enriches the yin* and moistens the Lungs.

* are Traditional Oriental Medicine terminologies. If you want me explain, please contact me or leave comment below.

Char-Broiled Salmon
7. Wild Salmon
(I have already mentioned about this sometimes)
Not only do fish fats keep your heart healthy, but they shrink your waist, too. Omega-3 fatty acids improve insulin sensitivity-which helps build muscle and decrease belly fat. And the more muscle you have, the more calories your body burns. Ops for wild salmon; it may contain fewer pollutants.

You don't need to do much to enhance salmon's taste. Simple is best. Season a fillet with salt and pepper, then cook it in a hot pan with 2 tsp oil for 1 to 3 minutes on each side.

Apple with brown sugar,
cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice cloves,
salt and lemon peel
8. Apples
(I wrote it is not good for your teeth in 2 posts ago ψ(`∇´)ψ)
An apple a day can keep weight gain at bay. People who chomped an apple before a pasta meal ate fewer calories overall than those who had a different snack. Plus, the antioxidants in apples may help prevent metabolic syndrome, a condition marked by excess belly fat or an "Apple Shape".
Eat more
Apples are the ideal on-the-go low-calorie snack. For a pie like treat, chop up a medium apple and sprinkle with 1/2 tsp allspice and 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Pop in the microwave for 1 1/2 minutes.

Buckwheat crepes
9. Buckwheat pasta
Swap plain noodles for this hearty variety; you'll slip into your skinny jeans in no time. Buckwheat is high in fiber and, unlike most carbs, contains protein. Those two nutrients make it very satiating, so it is harder to overeat Buckwheat past than the regular stuff.
Eat more
Cook this pasta as you do rice: Simmer it, covered, over low heat. For a light meal, toss cooked Buckwheat past with broccoli, carrots, mushrooms ans onions, Or make Buckwheat crepes.
The shells of Buckwheat are used for the Sobakawa pillow that I have mentioned sometime.

Blueberries with cereal
10. Blueberries
All berries are good for you, but those with a blue hue are among the best of the bunch. They have the highest antioxidant level of all commonly consumed fruit. They also deliver 3.6 grams of fiber per cup.
Eat more
Instead of topping your cereal with fruit, fill your bowl with blueberries, then sprinkle cereal on top and add milk or yogurt.

It is still half way of this series.

You can eat various foods for lose weight.

Don't you feel happy?

  1. Acupuncture is part of an integrated system of health care known as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that has an uninterrupted system of development dating back thousands of years in China and other parts of South-East Asia.Acupuncture takes a holistic approach to understanding and disease processes.After bashing my head against a tree in a skiing accident at Falls Creek, I visited an acupuncturist, chiropractor in Brisbane in 1980. I was very curious to see if the needle insertion would be painful since I hated needles. But I quickly discovered that hardly anything more than tiny pinch when the ultra- thin and more slender than a human hair are inserted. Most of the time I now know that nothing at all is felt upon needle insertion.
