Best Foods for Weight Loss, Approved by Dietitians

Apples

Pectin, found in this high-fiber fruit, delays stomach emptying, keeping you full longer.

Banana

Tryptophan and fiber in bananas curb hunger. Potassium in them reduces fluid retention and puffiness.

Lemon juice

Add lemon to water if you can't bear the flavor. This improves digestion and gives water a pleasant taste, encouraging you to drink more.

Peanuts

Peanuts are heart-healthy, manage blood sugar, and fill you up. Since they're heavy in calories, eat them sparingly.

Legumes

Peas, beans, and lentils include protein, fiber, antioxidants, iron, and vitamin B, which regulate hunger.

Brown rice

Brown rice digests slower than white rice and keeps you fuller. Fiber improves digestion and keeps you regular.
