10 High-Potassium Foods to Help You Lose Weight


Potassium Rich Foods

Potassium is among the most important nutrients for a healthy, slim body. It plays key roles in maintaining fluid and electrolyte balance, building muscle strength, maintaining nerve function, protecting heart health and helping you lose weight. Failing to get enough potassium in your daily diet (at least 4,700 milligrams a day) can cause an array of health maladies including fatigue, irritability, muscle cramps, hypertension, dizzy spells and heart palpitations.

To help assure you get enough potassium each day, Metabolic Research Center compiled this list of the top 10 popular potassium-rich foods:

 

  1. White beans: 1 cooked cup provides 1,004 mg of potassium, 29 percent of the recommended DV (daily value).
  2. Avocados: An average-sized avocado provides 975 mg of potassium, 28 percent of the recommended DV.
  3. Baked potatoes with skin: The average potato provides 926 mg of potassium, 26 percent of the recommended DV.
  4. Baked acorn squash: 1 cup cubed provides 899 mg of potassium, 26 percent of the recommended DV.
  5. Dark leafy greens like spinach: 1 cooked cup provides 839 mg of potassium, 24 percent of the recommended DV.
  6. Dried apricots: A half-cup provides 755 mg of potassium, 22 percent of the recommended DV.
  7. Plain skim or not-fat yogurt: 1 cup provides 625 mg of potassium, 18 percent of the recommended DV.
  8. Salmon: One 3-ounce fillet provides 534 mg of potassium, 15 percent of the recommended DV.
  9. White mushrooms: One cup of sliced mushrooms provides 428 mg of potassium, 12 percent of the recommended DV.
  10. Bananas: An average-sized banana provides 422 mg of potassium, 12 percent of the recommended DV.

This has been one of the most positive experiences of my life! I've tried every fad diet that has come and gone over the years and ended up gaining all of the weight I lost...plus some more! I had heard about MRC through a friend that had lost 20 pounds in about 2 weeks! I knew I had to check it out! I started in May 2016 and here it is October 2016 and I've lost a total of 73.5 pounds...So far!!! I praise MRC for the hard work and determination that they provide. If you are feeling hopeless go to MRC they are here to help and cheer you along the way!
