1. Egg Whites

Egg whites are the perfect way to start out your weight loss day! They are low in calories and fat, yet high in protein. Add some peppers, onions, spinach, lean turkey, or tomatoes for endless meal possibilities!
Best for: Breakfast, or Dinner

2. Low Fat Yogurt

Yogurt contains bacteria that help to improve your digestion – flushing your system and aiding weight loss! Avoid yogurt with added sugar and fruits at the bottom. Can be mixed with berries & flax seeds for an extra boost.
Best for: Breakfast, or Snacks

3. Turkey

Turkey is a naturally very lean meat. It is high in protein and low in fat and carbs. Turkey breast is very versatile and can go well with soups, salads, veggies, and omelets.

4. Broccoli

Broccoli contains soluble fiber and is a very low-calorie food – great for fat loss. It also contains iron and other vitamins to improve your overall health. Eat other green veggies too!

Spinach is a great substitute for the typical iceberg or romaine salads that everyone is used to. It is very dense in vital nutrients, low-calorie, and incredibly flavorful!
Best for: Lunch, or Dinner

6. Carrots

Carrots are a great snack or side dish. They are another low-calorie food that has a high nutrient content. Eating raw carrots taxes the digestive system which causes a greater calorie burn and faster weight loss.

Studies have shown that tomatoes can prevent certain types of cancer. Not only that, but they are a great source of natural energy and pair nicely with most healthy meals.
Best for: Lunch, Snacks, or Dinner

Apples contain pectin, which helps you to feel “full.” They contain vitamins and loads of anti-oxidants to improve your health as well! Another good travel food.

A handful of almonds can quickly put an end to any food cravings that might pop up throughout your day. They contain protein and healthy fats and are a great addition to your desk for snacks.
