Foods to Help Keep the Weight Off

Posted by Nirmala N.

Trying to lose weight? For most of us, there really isn't a magic pill out there to help stave cravings and keep the fat off, but some foods have what it takes.

Berries, for instance, are great sources of fiber, which means they'll keep you satisfied for a long time before your stomach starts to rumble.

Turkey, which contains the amino acid leucine, is also great for keeping metabolism high - it's also more satisfying than fat or carbs, which means you won't be fishing around the refrigerator for seconds.

Plain, low-fat yogurt, a great source of calcium, is also a leading source of leucine, so it can keep the fat off.

Breakfast cereals are also very slimming; in fact, according to the American Dietetic Association, women who eat cereal are 30 percent less likely to be overweight than those who eat other foods for breakfast.
