Five Foods that Fight Fat

weight loss foods

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!

1. Beans

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.

2. Apples

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!

3. Quinoa

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.

4. Berries

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.

This grain-free, gluten-free, sugar-free, naturally sweet Berry Chia Breakfast Bowl is a luscious way to start your day.
