There are several foods you can eat that are nutritious and have hardly any caloric value, thus helping you lose weight and giving you necessary nutrition at the same time. Among them:
Oatmeal. Oatmeal is a stick-to-the-ribs food that digests slowly, has necessary fiber, and can even help lower cholesterol. Just don’t load it up with sugar.
Wild salmon. Besides being “heart healthy,” salmon contains omega-3 fatty acids that can help build muscle and contribute to decreased belly fat
Apples. High in fiber, apples are filling, and the antioxidants in apples may help prevent excess belly fat.
Plain yogurt. With its combination of protein, fat and carbohydrates, yogurt can keep blood sugar levels steady and helps quell hunger urges.
Jalapeno or habanero chiles. The capsaicin in chiles causes the body to burn calories, and it’s pretty hard to eat too much too fast when these hot little numbers are included in a meal.
Grapefruit. No one’s positive whether or not grapefruit actually burns calories. But half a grapefruit still only has about 40 calories.
Sardines. Another great source of omega-3, sardines have a lot of protein, helping stabilize blood sugar and stimulating the metabolism while making you feel full.
There are lots of healthy alternatives out there that can be tasty and help you lose weight too.
