Foods That Do the Weight-Loss Work for You

With Monique Robbins

1. Whole-Wheat Pasta

With more than 6 grams per 1-cup serving, whole-wheat pasta is higher in fiber than many other whole grains.

2. Lentils

Compared to many animal-based proteins, legumes have fewer calories and fat and are packed with antioxidants and micronutrients.

3. Artichokes

Low in calories and high in fiber (10 grams per 1-cup serving)—plus iron, vitamin C and other nutrients—artichokes are a great choice for healthy weight loss.

4. Raspberries

Use fresh raspberries to garnish a fruity drink or top your morning yogurt or cereal.

5. Chia Seeds

They also pack protein, calcium, magnesium and other minerals—all for under 150 calories.

6. Almonds

Just be mindful of serving sizes—like all nuts, almonds are high in calories.
