44 Foods That Can Turbo-Charge Your Weight Loss

Dave Asprey, author of the forthcoming Bulletproof Diet, believes that some foods contain "antinutrients"—toxin-like chemicals that he says can trigger inflammation and make you a slave to cravings. Avoid them by picking (delicious and healthy!) grub from this list.
