1// Berries : Fiber is one of the best things to eat, especially when trying to lose weight. It can help regulate your digestive system and make you feel fresh and healthy. Blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries are all great picks.
2// Turkey : This is a superb lean protein. You can just buy slices and either snack on them or add them into a sandwich and it’ll keep you full and satisfied. It’s very lean, high in protein, and low in calories.
3// Almonds, peanuts and other nuts. : Fabulous source of protein and not to mention extremely delicious! But be careful, too much can add on more than half of what you need for your daily caloric intake. To reduce overeating, carry a limited amount in a Ziploc bag or small container so you don’t keep grabbing them from a jar.
4// Eggs : Eggs are so great because they’re loaded with protein to keep you full and satisfied. I love them poached or sunny-side up, with a dash of salt. Be careful about fried eggs, and scrambled eggs. They can add up grams of fat that you don’t need. Or, I love them in omelets, with fresh cilantro or something. Boiled eggs are good too.
5// Low-fat Dairy: Researchers believe that eating low-fat dairy can help increase the way your body breaks down fats. Not to mention it’s delicious! Try skim cheese sticks, low-fat milk, or low-fat yogurt.
6// Veggies/Spinach : I go through little phases where I just snack on vegetable trays or raw vegetables and even though I might not like all of them I try to always remind myself that it’ll make me more fit and make my skin clear. I like to eat cucumbers, bell peppers, celery, carrots, etc. They help supply your daily needs for vitamins, and can help keep you full. I know some people don’t enjoy them, but they are a food that is really important for overall health. EAT YOUR VEGGIES! 🙂
7// Apples : Apples are loaded with fiber, so you feel full, like berries. An apple a day keeps the doctor away 🙂
8// Salmon : Excellent source of Omega-3 fatty acids. They promote a faster metabolism, and helps curb cravings by improving your glucose/insulin response.
9// Peanut Butter : This is good for the same reason why nuts are good for you. A good source of healthy fats. But buy the all natural, it is better for you; less artificial flavor.
10// Oatmeal : Studies show that oatmeal is more filling than other dry cereal. Add 2 teaspoons of brown sugar and a little low-fat milk to give it flavor. I usually add in crasins, any frozen fruit really, dates and bananas. (obviously not all together)
