Beans have a high fiber content and digest slowly, which makes the stomach feel full. They are also a good source of protein. Fruits and vegetables have high water content. Both can be eaten on their own or added to meals, so less higher-calorie food is eaten. Mushrooms are a good substitute for beef. Grapefruit has been linked with weight loss and has vitamin C, folic acid and potassium. Good ways to eat grapefruit are in a salad or eating half of one before each meal.
Good vegetable choices that provide vitamins and antioxidants include broccoli, cauliflower, lettuce, spinach and cabbage. Nuts are a good snack choice because people tend to eat less at meals if they have eaten nuts earlier in the day. Yogurt has also been closely linked to weight loss.
A breakfast that includes eggs provides a full feeling throughout the day. Oatmeal is another healthy breakfast choice, because it has slow-releasing carbohydrates, which don't raise blood sugar as much as other carbohydrates. Exercising a couple hours after eating oatmeal can also increase fat loss.Learn more about Nutrition & Diets
