Foods That Do the Weight-Loss Work for You

1. Whole-Wheat Pasta

If you are unable to completely transition, consider combining whole-wheat and white pasta.

2. Lentils

Legumes are rich in antioxidants and micronutrients and contain fewer calories and cholesterol than many animal-based proteins.

3. Artichokes

Weight-loss supplements containing artichoke extract have generated some excitement, but beware.

4. Raspberries

Utilize fresh raspberries as a garnish for a flavorful beverage or as a topping for your morning yogurt or cereal. 

5. Chia Seeds

Incorporate chia seeds into breakfast foods such as crepes, waffles, or oatmeal to incorporate a nutritious fiber component.

6. Almonds

For an added texture, sprinkle sliced almonds over fresh fruit, yogurt, or a green salad.
