Losing weight?is a matter of simple math. To drop pounds, you need to eat fewer calories than you burn. There?s no way around that. But what you eat can have an impact.
“Certain foods can help you shed body weight,” says Heather Mangieri, a spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, “because they help you feel full longer and help curb cravings.”
Some even kick up your metabolism. So consider this list when you go to the supermarket:
Cheap, filling, and versatile, beans are a great source of?protein. Beans are also high in fiber and slow to digest. That helps you feel full longer, which may stop you from eating more.
Start a meal with a cup of soup and you may end up eating less. It doesn?t matter if the soup is chunky or pureed, as long as its broth based. You want to keep the soup to 100 to 150 calories a serving. So skip the dollops of cream and butter.
