Who doesn’t want to have a supermodel-like body? Most people would like to be healthier and look more toned. But that means exercising and going on a strict, healthy diet.
Not many can resist the temptations of the delicious food—or at least not for long—when you open the fridge or whenever you pass a nice restaurant. There’s more: most diets mean limiting food intake and that in turn, makes you hungry—like all the time!
Now you can fill your tummy and not gain any weight! A dream come true.
#15 Egg Whites
For those who follow a strict diet, egg whites are a godsend! Add tomatoes with the whites and you can easily enjoy a healthy omelet. If you fry it the fat from the oil will add a lot more calories.
Salad is an ultimate source of vitamins A and C. It also contains folic acid and iron. Leafy salads barely contain calories and can be consumed in large quantities.
Fresh, crunchy cucumbers have a lot of health benefits. They contain the same amount of water as celery. Don’t peel cucumbers because the skin contains beta-carotene, which is good for your eyes.
It’s best to eat cauliflower raw—an excellent source of vitamins C and K.
Tomatoes contain lycopene, vitamins A, C, B2, folic acid, fiber, chromium, potassium and various other nutrients. They barely contain any calories and with a little creativeness, you can make all kinds of tasty, healthy dishes.
Broccoli fulfills approximately 20% of your daily fiber requirement. It’s an excellent food for those who are trying to lose weight. It also contains vitamins A, C, E, and K.
Popcorn is a popular movie snack and it mostly consists of air. It’s the overloaded cheese and other additives that make it unhealthy. One cup of lightly salted or ‘air-popped’ corn will never affect your body.
Wakame (pictured here) is one of many edible seaweeds and like other seaweeds, it contains a large amount of iodine. Good news: it barely has any calories. But don’t rush into making sushi as the rice needed to make it contains a high glycemic index and won’t help in weight loss.
#7 Sugar snap peas
Did you know a single cup of sugar snap peas contains around 35 kcal? They are also rich in fibers and proteins and will help reach your daily nutritional needs.
Grapefruit is great for stabilizing blood sugar levels. They are also full of vitamin C and have a low-calorie value. Start eating more of this fruit and you’ll soon notice inches lost from your waist.
Melons taste sweet, but are another low-calorie food that will help you stick to your diet. It contains approximately half the recommended daily value of vitamins A and C.
This is another fruit rich in potassium and fiber. It’s filling and perfect for losing weight. Bonus: strawberries also have an anti-inflammatory effect!
Blackberries are one of those unique foods that’s low in calorie content, but still tastes great! They contain antioxidants and vitamin C. They are even safe for people who are on a long-term diet!
Yes, oranges have it all: low in calories, rich in vitamin C, the pith (white stuff under the skin) helps cholesterol and they’re delicious to boot!
Blueberries have the highest amount of antioxidants of any fruit. A cupful will help you get a balanced diet. They are light in calories too, so don’t worry about gaining any weight!
