Oats

Yes, oats are a grain and they have carbohydrates but, they are also filling and the filling of being full lasts a long time which means, that you won’t feel like you are starving before your next meal rolls around. This means you are less likely to reach for those fattening snack in the middle of the morning and so you will end up cutting more calories by initially eating the oatmeal. Try consuming ½ cup of cooked oatmeal in the morning with skim milk and blueberries or strawberries to sweeten them up. For a beverage plain green tea or a large glass of water. So, as you can see oats are one of those foods that help you lose weight.

Salads

Another of the foods that help you lose weight are salads. Not just because they are low in calories but, because they make you chew and chew. The longer a food takes to eat the more satisfied your body feels and a salad with mixed greens and a lot of different textures such as cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots and celery is going to have you doing a lot of chewing.

To avoid those high calorie dressings try a squirt of lemon or your own low calorie herbal blend to add a little more flavor to salad. Of course adding a few walnuts or almonds, grapes and orange slices and the the juice from a ½ of orange will also help keep the calories down, fight cholesterol, and add a whole new taste to that luncheon salad.
