10 Resistant Starch Foods to Help You Lose Weight

Starches get a bad rap - and with good reason. They're made of glucose, a sugar that can be absorbed from your digestive system into your blood stream and used for energy. But when the starch you consume produces more glucose than your body needs, the extra has to go somewhere. Some gets stored as glycogen in your liver and muscles, and - you guessed it - the rest gets converted to fat and stored all around your body.

But there is such thing as a good starch. Known as resistant starches, these healthy starches escape from digestion in the small intestine and head straight to the large intestine, where they act as dietary fiber, helping to boost metabolism and burn fat.

Among the top food sources of resistant starch are:

 

  • Bananas

  • Brown rice

  • Garbanzo beans

  • Kidney beans

  • Lentils

  • Oats

  • Pearl barley

  • Plantains

  • Potatoes

  • White beans


Developing and sticking to a weight loss-targeted diet can be tough because fad diets simply don't satisfy and because many myths and misconceptions surround certain food types like starches.
