Best Foods for Weight Loss
5 Slimming and Nutritious Foods
When you get bored with leafy greens (and that can happen easily when you're counting calories), artichokes are the way to go. They make an ideal appetizer—one has just 60 calories, and frontloading all the fiber they contain will help you consume fewer calories during the rest of your meal. (Search: How much fiber should I eat a day?) When you can get chokes fresh (in the spring), they're delicious steamed; just sprinkle with salt, pepper, or a squeeze of lemon juice and eat the leaves one by one. Canned artichoke hearts, a staple in any slim-calm-sexy pantry, come in handy when you need a simple but satisfying snack. Just puree them in a blender or food processor with a little olive oil and fresh rosemary.
