Dietary Aids for Weight Loss

Beans are an inexpensive, substantial, and versatile source of protein. 

1. Beans

Additionally, beans are high in fiber and sluggish to digest. Consequently, you will feel fuller for longer, which may prevent you from consuming more.

2. Soup

If you begin a meal with a cup of broth, you may consume less food overall.

It does not matter whether the soup is chunky or smooth, as long as it contains fluid. You should aim for 100 to 150 calories per serving.

Want confectionary between your meals? Choose one or two squares of dark chocolate over white chocolate.

3. Dark Chocolate

A few hours later, chocolate aficionados who had consumed dark chocolate consumed 15% less pizza than those who had consumed milk chocolate.

You can consume more vegetables, indulge in "cheat" foods, and reduce your calorie intake all at the same time.

4. Pureed Vegetables

When researchers from Penn State added pureed cauliflower and zucchini to macaroni and cheese, the dish appeared to be just as popular. 

A breakfast high in protein may help you avoid snacking throughout the day.

5. Yogurt with berries

In a study of obese young women, those who began the day with 35 grams of protein -- which is likely much more than you consume -- felt satiated immediately.

A fistful of almonds, peanuts, walnuts, or pecans makes for an excellent on-the-go snack.

6. Nuts

Research indicates that when individuals snack on nuts, they eat less at subsequent meals.
