10 Simple Ingredients that Support Weight Loss

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could achieve optimal health, wellness, and weight loss with just a little trick here or a little effort there? 

While anyone who has tried to lose weight knows, this is certainly not the case. However, the good news is that in the midst of all our efforts, there are some simple ingredients that can be incorporated into your diet to help supplement your hard work!

Read on to discover how just a daily spoonful of these 10 ingredients can provide excellent nutrition benefits to complement your weight loss journey! 

1) Ginger

This tasty spice is thermogenic, which means it raises your body temperature and can help you burn calories more quickly. It can also aid in appetite control and reduce feelings of hunger.

Where to add it: 

Try it in smoothies, soup, or in tea. Ginger tastes great in Asian dishes particularly. Fresh ginger is best, but you’ll still get benefits from using powdered ginger.

Want a refreshing ginger drink instead of something hot? 310 Cayenne Ginger Lemonade is a must-try, with an intriguing mix of sweet and slightly spicy flavors that help to kick up your metabolism and keep cravings under control. You can also add the lemonade mix into tea or even just hot water for a warm version of this treat!

2) Black Cumin Seed Oil

 

The next ingredient we’ll talk about is probably one that’s new to you, but definitely worth trying… and it’s called black cumin seed oil. This oil is rich in satisfying and incredibly healthy fats – including a rich supply of omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids.

Along with supporting a healthy brain, heart, and cholesterol levels, these fats are essential for energy maintenance in the body and a healthy mood – which can help to calm cravings and keep your appetite under control. 

Where to add it:

This rich oil can be drizzled into salad dressings or even savory smoothies. It has a strong taste and aroma, with notes of onion, oregano, and black pepper, along with a nuttiness. You can also reap the benefits of black cumin seed oil by simply taking it right off the spoon. We suggest you use a chaser like honey to add sweetness to your palate after consuming it. 

3) Honey

Speaking of honey, that’s also our next ingredient! This delicious natural sweetener is filled with vitamins and minerals, along with enzymes that aid your digestion tremendously. Note: To get the best health benefits, use raw, organic honey.

Where to add it: 

Instead of sugar, try a teaspoon of honey in your tea, oatmeal, or shake. Dissolved in a small glass of warm water, honey combined with lemon and cinnamon (see #3 and #11!) makes a dynamic weight loss elixir.

4) Lemon

Next, citrus fruits are loaded with vitamin C, which is critical in keeping your immune system working well. Lemon juice not only boosts your immune system, but it also goes to work on improving your digestion. 

Where to add it:

One of the best ways to absorb the full benefits of lemon juice is by mixing it with a small amount of warm water and drinking it first thing in the morning. Adding honey, cinnamon, or even black pepper give this potion more power!

5) Apple Cider Vinegar 

Next, this powerful liquid contains acids and enzymes that are known to help assist with proper digestion, increase your metabolism, reduce water retention, and lower blood sugar levels. To get these awesome results, always use organic, unfiltered apple cider vinegar (Bragg’s is the easily found gold standard).

Where to add it:

Learning to add apple cider vinegar into your healthy, whole food recipes is a great way to enjoy it. One suggestion is to make your own simple salad dressing using equal parts oil and vinegar with a pinch of salt. You can also add it to sauces and marinades.

Another way to reap the benefits of this vinegar daily is with an apple cider vinegar supplement, like 310 Apple Cider Vinegar. Taking a simple capsule supplement can help you avoid the strong smell and potent taste of the vinegar, while taking it on a regular schedule for weight loss help.

6) Turmeric

A vivid yellow-orange, this next ingredient is packed with flavor and glowing health potential. This Indian spice is packed with antioxidants and powerful anti-inflammatory properties. For this reason, it’s known to help reduce inflammation in the body, supporting great joint health along with a healthy gut.

Having great gut health is key not only for optimal digestion and stronger immunity, but also for a healthy, balanced mood. And your body can also work more efficiently to burn fat in an environment with low inflammation.

Where to add it:

While it has a distinct flavor, turmeric works well with other spices and adds great depth to any protein you use it with. It also makes a delicious hot drink, like in the popular blend called Golden Milk, where it can be added to warm milk or water.

In addition, you can reap the benefits of turmeric and its most powerful antioxidant property, curcumin, on a regular daily schedule with a capsule supplement.

7) Black Pepper

Next, you might be surprised to see this common spice on the list, but pepper contains piperine – an element that stops the formation of new fat cells in the body and reduces current fat levels in the blood stream. So, adding some simple spice to your meals can help to support your weight loss goals!

Where to add it:

Liberally include black pepper in your meals, and even try mixing it with lemon juice and honey in water.

8) MCT Oil

Next, though coconut oil supplies your body with healthy fats, another oil that comes from coconut oil is even better for your weight loss goals: MCT Oil. This fast-absorbing oil is quickly utilized within, becoming a powerful fuel for body and brain that can help you power through workouts, be more productive, and burn calories more quickly.

In addition, just like coconut oil, MCT Oil is rich in healthy fats that provide satiety and can help you have better control over your diet.

Where to add it:

MCT Oil should not be used for cooking, as the high heat can disturb its beneficial properties. But, it can be added to already cooked things like soups, or used to make cold sauces or dressings. Many people enjoy MCT Oil mixed with a spoon into their coffee or tea, as it doesn’t change the flavor but adds additional creaminess.

You can also add it to your meal replacement shake smoothies! And it’s particularly beneficial for keto recipes, since the MCT fats become ketones in the body and help you stay in ketosis.

9) Cinnamon

Familiar as a holiday flavor, the next ingredient is packed with beneficial minerals and immunity-supporting antioxidants – potentially even more so than other potent spices like garlic and oregano. It also surprisingly contains quite a bit of fiber, at 1.6 grams per teaspoon. This can help support fullness at meals when it’s added to foods or drinks.

Where to add it:

Cinnamon has a bold and extremely pleasant aroma and taste, so goes great on oatmeal as well as baking recipes. It can even be added to savory dinner recipes, and makes a fun flavor that you can try on different foods. Cinnamon also makes a great addition to your tea habit – try sprinkling some on the top of your favorite tea after it cools. 

10) Collagen Powder

And finally, upping the amount of protein you eat daily is one of the best ways to lose weight and then keep it off – but for many people, getting adequate amounts of this macronutrient is a challenge.

In addition to having a high quality protein powder, you can add a scoop of 310 Collagen Powder to incorporate even more of this essential nutrient into your diet! Not to mention, collagen is great for glowing hair, skin, and nails for a glow from within.

Where to add it:

Collagen can be mixed up super-fast with a spoon and your favorite liquid, or added into a smoothie for a thicker consistency. You can also add a spoonful to your oatmeal or use it when baking.
