You may lose weight by summer by eating more carbohydrates, even if it seems paradoxical.
Yogurt has carbs! It's an anti-inflammatory carb and probiotic. Probiotics replenish "good" gut microbes.
That bacteria can decrease inflammation and weight. "Eating more probiotic-rich foods can help reduce inflammation in the body," Best says.
Berries also reduce inflammation. Blueberries are exceptionally rich in antioxidants and reduce inflammation.
"Blueberries are nutrient-dense, meaning they are low in calories and high in nutrients," Best says.
Another carb for weight reduction and inflammation is edamame beans.
Potatoes are also carbohydrates! Sweet potatoes enhance immunity, lower inflammation, and help you lose weight, unlike processed white potatoes.
"Sweet potatoes are a nutrient-dense root vegetable full of vitamin A, fiber, and other beneficial vitamins and minerals," says Richards.
