Even if you’re crazy about keeping your figure, there are still foods you can eat without limitations. They’re rich in fiber while being low calorie, satiating you without the risk of gaining weight.
There are a number of foods out there that you can enjoy eating without worrying about gaining a couple of pounds. We have 15 foods that you can eat a lot of and you still won’t gain any weight.
1. Apple & Plums
One apple is only 50 kcal. It makes you feel satiated and regulates your digestion. Plums are rich in vitamin C and potassium, which maintain your heart and vessels.
2. Currants & Cranberries
Currants and cranberries are rich in vitamin C, and the former is also a diuretic, helping get rid of excess water. Strawberries are very nutritious and help your digestion as well as your cardiovascular system.
3. Cabbage, Broccoli & Cauliflower
These veggies are your allies in the fight against excess weight. A portion of diced cabbage is just 7 kcal. You shouldn’t, of course, only eat cabbage and cauliflower, as their nutrients rival with iodine, but you can easily include it a couple of times a week.
A portion of eggplant grilled or baked without oil makes for 24 kcal, so you can enjoy this savory veggie without any limitations.
5. Citrus Fruits
You shouldn’t eat a lot of fruits while on a diet, but citrus fruits are definitely an exception. They are great for your skin and digestion.
If you fry popcorn without butter and sugar (with a little salt, for instance), you can eat it without fear. This way, a portion (about a cup) only contains 31 kcal.
With 60-70 kcal per slice, you can eat them day in and day out. These fruits help excrete excess liquid from your body and satiate you well.
An indispensable vegetable for all those losing weight: it helps fight swelling and gets you slimmer without harm.
Beetroot is a source of nutrients, such as manganese. They help burn fat, drive your muscles, and regulate your blood sugar. An average portion is just 40 kcal.
You can eat them at any time of the day, even at night, without fear of gaining weight. Of course, boiled eggs are better than fried ones.
This delicious fruit is the best friend of those who’re losing weight. The bromelain contained within pineapples actively splits fats and helps metabolize proteins.
It’s not shocking to say that salad is something that we can all eat as much as we want. Of course, without the super fattening dressing. But you can make it yummy!
Celery stems are 95% water. They help you lose excess weight and detoxify your body thanks to their diuretic effect.
Algae, like laminaria, are the best source of iodine. They help your thyroid function normally, keeping your hormones at normal levels and preventing you from gaining weight.
A portion of zucchini is about 42 kcal. It normalizes your salt-water ratio, improves your intestinal function, and can also be used to lower the energy output of main courses.
