Popcorn is a great snack for weight loss because it is low in calories, but also a great source of fiber, which can help you feel full throughout the day. Plain Greek yogurt and berries make a delicious, nutrient-dense snack. Berries are one of the best sources of antioxidants whereas greek yogurt is high in protein and it's also a great source of calcium and potassium.
Studies show that avocados can help lower bad cholesterol, improve symptoms of arthritis, and protect your skin from sun damage. Apples are high in fiber and polyphenol antioxidants that improve gut health and reduce heart disease risk. Peanut butter reduces bad cholesterol. Cottage cheese is high in protein and very filling. Full-fat varieties boast conjugated linoleic acid a fatty acid linked to health benefits.
Cinnamon helps lower blood sugar and may improve gut health. Dark chocolate is loaded with flavanols that may lower blood pressure and reduce heart disease risk, provided the chocolate contains at least 70% cocoa solids. Including these nutrient dense food in your diet and minimizing consumption of highly processed food helps boost weight loss.
