The following choices are nutrient dense and have been scientifically proven to fill you up, shrink appetite, or help you drop pounds.

Spicy chilies -  They increase yourfat burning machine , thanks to an antioxidant called capsaicin. A study from the University of California at Los Angeles found that in the few hours following a meal containing capsaicin, calorie burn nearly doubled. The antioxidant also significantly increased fat oxidation, pushing the body to use more fat as fuel. Some studies have even found that meals flavoured with capsaicin can diminish appetite. Experiment with a few different fresh pre-made salsas and read the ingredients carefully to get a sense of which peppers speak to you.


 Grapefruit - This citrus fruit won weight-lose fame after a study found that people who ate half a grapefruit with each meal lose 3.6 pounds, while those who drank a serving or grapefruit juice three times a day lose 3.3 pounds. Many people in the study lose more than 10 pounds without making any other changes to their diets! If downing that much tartness leaves you puckered, try grapefruit as a delicious low-calorie dessert..Add a tiny bit of honey, sprinkle on some cardamom, and leave it under the broiler for two to three minutes.

 Pears - Apple may get all the nutritional glory, but a pear a day is a good idea too! pears have high levels of a kind of fiber called pectin, which is also found in apples, which is known to promote weight loss. Poached, they make a tasty warm dessert; raw, their creamy-gritty texture pairs nicely with cheese / Peanut butter for a snack.

 Artichoke - When you get bored with leafy greens , artichokes are the way to go. They make an ideal appetizer. One has just 60 calories, and frontloading all the fiber will help you consume fewer calories during the rest of your meal. When you can get chokes fresh, steam it! they're really delicious! Sprinkle with a pinch of salt, pepper or a squeeze of lemon juice and eat the leaves one by one. Artichokes hearts is a staple dish in all slim-calm-sexy pantry... Just puree them in a blender with a little olive oil and fresh herbs~ nyum nyum~

Tomatoes - High volume of water and fiber ensure that tomatoes fill you up for fewer calories. They're also loaded with lycopene, and researches have found that the higher the level of this antioxidant in people's blood, the lower their level of heart disease and other chronic illness. Plus, tomatoes increase in nutritional power when cooked, so sautee or roast them, make sauce, or blend up tomato soup. On a low energy day, it's a true comfort food!
