12 foods/ingredients for weight management.

Raisins, almonds and Korean pine nuts are three of 12 foods or ingredients that help people in their quest for better weight management. All three foods leave people feeling full longer, leading to less cumulative food intake. Other weight-management foods include dairy protein and dietary fiber, and rice protein, which helps recovery time after exercise. Other satiety-promoting foods include potato protein extract (found in "power bars"), and an ingredient derived from saffron, which decreases snacking frequency. Polyphenols, from blueberries and green tea, produce a spike in metabolism after exercise, while canola oil used in place of other oils can lower abdominal fat when consumed in a heart-healthy diet. Conjugated linoleic acid, derived from safflower oil, decreases the amount of fat the body stores after eating, increases the rate of fat breakdown and fat metabolism, and decreases the total number of fat cells. Lastly, coffee bean extract, developed from decaffeinated green coffee beans, may help increase the rate of fat released from fatty tissue. (Food Technology, 11/2013).
