Trying to Lose Weight? Eat These 5 Things

Delicious foods that help you diet? It sounds too good to be true. Weight loss comes down to simple math. You have to eat fewer calories
than you burn. Certain foods can help you shed body weight, because they help you feel full longer and help curb cravings. Some even kick up your metabolism. So take this list when you go to the supermarket:

1. Beans
Inexpensive, filling, and versatile, beans are a great source of
protein. Beans are also high in fiber and slow to digest. That means
you feel full longer, which may stop you from eating
more..

2. Old fashioned oatmeal
It's rich in fiber, filling, and also heart healthy. You'll want to
avoid instant oatmeal or oatmeal with added sugar. Instead of adding
sugar to your oatmeal, consider adding stevia, honey, or pices such as
cinnamon or nutmeg to give it flavor..

3. Potatoes
After all, even though a potato is carb-heavy, it is a vegetable—one
medium spud contains 168 alories with 5 grams of protein and 3 grams
of fiber. They are particularly satisfying because of they contain
resistant starch—complex starch molecules that we can't digest.

4. Leafy Greens
They are low in both calories and carbohydrates, but loaded with
fiber. Leafy greens are also incredibly nutritious and very high in
all sorts of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. This includes
calcium, which has been shown to aid fat burning in some studies

5. Almonds
If you're looking for the perfect on-the-go snack, almonds might just
be it. Snacking on them helps you stay satiated throughout the day,
and eat less at meals. A small handful is the ideal portion size, you
get a healthy dose of monounsaturated fat. They're loaded with vitamin
E, which is essential for healthy hair, skin, and nails.
