Today, I will cover the absolute best foods to lose weight. These foods support weight loss because they have the least effect on insulin. 

Insulin, even in tiny amounts, will block weight loss. Insulin is a hormone that converts the carbs you eat into fat—it's the fat-making hormone. The foods on this list will barely trigger insulin. 

Just be sure to have a moderate amount of protein (7g-8g per meal). If you want to lose weight fast, only consume two meals a day or even one meal a day. 

It's important to keep in mind that pure fat doesn't affect insulin, and the only carbohydrate that does not trigger insulin is fiber.
