These foods will help you in a variety of ways. Some will help increase your metabolism. Most will help make you feel more full. Others can actually help burn fat.

1. Apples



The pectin in apples makes you feel more full. This is a great way to eat less. In addition, the pectin actually limits your cells fat absorption. Try an apple in the morning during breakfast or try it as a midday snack.



2. Avocadoes



Avocadoes are proof that a food does not have to be low in fat to help you lose weight. Instead, it needs to have the right kind of fat. Avocadoes contain more than 25 of the essential nutrients. When you eat an avocado you're getting B vitamins, potassium, vitamin E, and lutein.

3. Grapefruits



Of all the citrus foods, grapefruit ranks the best as a diet food. It can lower your insulin levels which in turn will make you less hungry. If you don't like grapefruit, add a different citrus fruit. Both grapefruits and oranges can increase your metabolism. The vitamin C actually dilutes fat.

4. Hot peppers



Spicy foods such as jalapeƱos are one of the best diet foods. They give a quick boost to the metabolism. They also prove that healthy food is not necessarily bland.

5. Broccoli

Broccoli is a powerful anticancer food. Its high in calcium, iron, magnesium, vitamin A, and vitamin C. It's filling without being high in calories.



6. Blueberries

Blueberries are full of powerful antioxidants. They fight against disease, give you energy, and their sweet taste makes a great snack.

7. Almonds

Of all the nuts, almonds are the most nutritional. Have a handful of almonds in the morning during breakfast to give you energy for the rest of the day. They are also great to replace any unhealthy snack foods which are standing in the way of your weight loss goals.

Hi

Diet Food 1 - Olive Oil

Despite the anti-fat campaigns of recent decades, your body does need some fat to process vitamins and use them properly. My favourite oil, olive oil, is a mono-unsaturated fat that is the primary source of fat in the so-called Mediterranean diet. Olive oil contains antioxidants, flavonoids, beta-carotene and vitamin E, among other things. One tablespoon of olive oil has 125 calories, which is high, but drizzled on a 13 calorie spinach salad with a little lemon juice and some garlic, you still have a meal with less than 150 calories - plus a lot of healthy fuel for your body.

Diet Food 2. Whole grain breads

You are probably aware of the recent popularity of low carbohydrate diets, but most doctors seem to agree that you do need a healthy portion of carbohydrates each day, something like 50-60% of your calorie intake. So, instead of cutting out carbohydrates, you should be aiming to keeping them to a sensible proportion of your diet.

Thanks
Have a nice time ahead
