10 Weight Loss-friendly Foods To  Add To Your Diet

Water 

The first isn't quite "food," but it's your foundation. For many reasons, water is essential. Increasing your water intake may mean cutting out sugary drinks. Dehydration can also make you mistake thirst for hunger, leading to overeating.

Greens 

Foods like spinach, kale, lettuce, chard and other greens can help you lose weight because they are high in water and low in calories. In other words, they'll make you full without making you feel heavy.

Olive Oil 

Olive oil is healthy for your heart, but it may also help your waistline. The European Journal of Nutrition released a research in October 2018 that found that participants who received olive oil instead of soybean oil lost more weight over nine weeks.

Salmon 

Salmon is a "fatty" fish, but it helps you lose weight.The USDA reports roughly 22 grammes of protein per 3-ounce serving of grilled salmon, which keeps you full without saturated fat like red meat.

Chickpeas 

Garbanzo beans, or chickpeas, are used in hummus, salads, and snacks. Like other legumes, chickpeas are weight-loss-friendly because they're high in fibre, which most of us don't get enough of. Chickpeas have 4 grammes of fibre per half cup.

Full-Fat Yogurt

Harvard Health Publishing says that choosing full-fat yoghurt over fat-free yoghurt may help you lose more weight. This may seem like the opposite of what you've been told about nutrition.

Oats 

Weight loss has long been associated with oats. Oats contain beta-glucan fibre. Oats, high in beta-glucan, can carry the FDA health claim that they support a heart-healthy diet and lessen heart disease risk.

Watermelon 

Since watermelon is 90% water, it's a great summer weight-loss snack. Two cups of watermelon packs fewer than 100 calories and keeps you hydrated and satiated.

Farro 

If you're dieting, you're probably cutting off bread and pasta, which make you eat more. Grains contain B vitamins and fibre, so you shouldn't eliminate food groups. Other whole grains include farro and quinoa.

Blackberries 

Blackberries have 8 grammes of fibre per cup, which is impressive. Blackberries include phytochemicals that may aid in weight loss, as reported in Nutrients in October 2016.
