Here are some foods that can help you lose your weight while still maintaining health:


This family consists of cabbage, broccoli, brussel sprouts and cauliflower. They are high in fibre and are very filling. When you eat these you're less likely to be eating more than you should.

They can be cancer-fighting and this makes these foods a go to option. They also have low to no exposure to cholesterol intake.

Whole eggs

You may be thinking that eggs belong to another list, opposite from this one. However, they are actually great for weight loss regimes.

There are also studies done showing that eggs for breakfast increases weight loss on a calorie restricted diet, in comparison to eating donuts in the morning.

Leafy greens

If you're really eying a trim look, then these greens are the food for you. Greatly packed with fibre, you'll realize that they offer nutrients without getting you more kilos.

Kales, spinach, and collards, all but help to burn the fat and give you that trimmed up body.

Boiled potatoes

This filling meal will get you avoiding any other food offers you get. They contain potassium, and starch.

These nutrients are great for the body and the potato intake will make you avoid adding onto your plate during the day.

A day kick started by eating boiled potatoes will be a full stomach day indeed.

Beans and legumes

Here's an option that goes well with a vegetarian diet. They include the lentils, black beans, kidney beans and peas.

They tend to offer low calories, hence a preferable option for weigh loss. Their increase in protein gives them the quality of advocating for weight loss.

This is a fatty fish that is way so tasty when prepared. You can confidently add this to your daily weight loss diet, being sure to use better preparation rather than frying.

Grilling this will make the protein filled meaty to still be moist and juicy enough.

Weight loss should not be a journey that you're afraid of starting. Remind yourself that you can do it and commit to eating healthier.
