A weight-loss journey isn’t easy. We often fall prey to our cravings and end up eating the wrong food at the wrong time. If this is the story of your life, here are some superfoods that curb your cravings and help you shed those extra kilos faster!

Apple Cider Vinegar:

Apple Cider Vinegar contains acetic acid which decreases the production of fat and sugar in the liver. Drinking a glass of warm water mixed with a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar can reduce belly fat and suppress your appetite, sometimes lowering your intake by almost 275 calories.

Green Tea:

Trade your morning chai for this Asian treasure that is full of antioxidants to boost your metabolism and reduce your body’s ability to absorb fat.

Basil Seeds:

Basil seeds or sabja are tiny but come with tremendous benefits. The best way to consume them is to add soaked seeds to a bottle of water and keep sipping on it all day. These fibre-rich seeds have a good blend of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, that increase metabolism and decrease the absorption of fats and carbohydrates, thereby helping in weight-loss.

Flax seeds:

Flax seeds are a must in your diet. This low-calorie food is high in protein, fibre and Omega-3 fatty acids, that aids in controlling your hunger pangs. In the long run, they help in maintaining your precious hair, the levels of blood sugar, cholesterol and reduce the risk of cancer.


Consuming ghee in moderation helps in mobilising and eliminating stubborn fat from your body. The Omega-3 fatty acids present in this simple kitchen ingredient increases the levels of good cholesterol, strengthens bones and boosts immunity.

These superfoods will not transform you overnight. You need to consume them along with a healthy diet and an hour of intense physical activity, regularly. Start right away because it is better late than never!
