Good news! Here’s a nutrient that starts fighting fat the moment you put it in your mouth and actually helps you lose weight the more you eat of it!
What is this whittle-your-middle nutrient? Fabulous fiber!
And before you start thinking of gritty, twig-like cereal that doesn’t taste any better than the box it came in, let me tell you that fiber doesn’t have to taste like cardboard, sticks, or sand … or even raw beets (yuck).
Here are those five high-fiber, fat-fighting foods … and some delicious ways to eat them! Take that fat!
The versatile bean is just loaded with slimming fiber. One cup of your average-joe bean has more fiber than the most Americans eat in one whole day. Beans can play either a star or supporting role in many delicious dishes.
If you don’t like beans, these Chickpea Spinach Nuggets are a great way to gets some beans in your diet. They are so delicious … you’ll hardly know you’re eating beans.
These yummy Butternut Enchiladas are a hit even for those who don’t normally like beans.

In the mood for something sweet and chewy? While a snickers bar may fill that description, it will also fill out your waistline. Try some sweet, chewy dried apples instead. They offer you vitamin C, iron, and a whopping 7 grams of fiber (for one cup) – with no sugar and no fat!
Apples are such a great weight loss food! Here are some more recipes using apples.
Easy to make and a good source of protein, iron, and fiber, quinoa is a great ingredient for weight loss. One cup of cooked quinoa gives you 5 grams of fiber.
My favorite way to eat quinoa is in these Quinoa Patties.

Even if you hate healthy food, you probably love berries like strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries – which is great because they’re so good for you.
One cup of strawberries contains a luscious 5 grams of fiber and 1 cup of raspberries gives you an astounding 8 grams of fiber!
Not only are they loaded with slimming fiber, but they’re also a super source of vitamin C and manganese.
