    Top 10 Foods for Weight Loss

    Here are 10 “super foods” to help you lose weight and feel great

    Tomatoes: very low in calories, source of vitamin A, C and antioxidants. Use cooked and raw. Try halved tomatoes sprinkled with parmesan cheese and broiled until cheese melts.

    Salmon: the super fish, heavy in omega 3 fatty acids, protein and calcium, Vitamin D and B. Grilled, baked or sautéed, serve over a bed of brown rice with a squeeze of lemon juice.

    Green tea: metabolism booster, rich in antioxidants. Try iced or hot. Green tea can be mixed with black tea if you don’t care for the taste. Add a sprig of mint or lemon for variety.

    Broccoli: high in fiber, folate vitamins A and C, low in calories. Stir fry broccoli with garlic and scallions with a splash of soy sauce for an oriental treat.

    Apples: An apple before each meal helps you lose weight. High in pectin and fiber so you feel full longer. Bake apples with the center filled with walnuts and a sprinkle of brown sugar.

    Spinach: Popeye was right about spinach but the fresh kind not the canned kind. High in antioxidants, vitamins A, K, B and C. Dress a raw spinach salad with olive oil and vinegar dressing. Add a sliced hard boiled egg and you almost have a perfect meal.

    Walnuts: source of protein, healthy fat and fiber. Add chopped walnuts to yogurt to boost the protein and add some fiber. Or to cooked brown rice for a bit of crunch. Other nuts to try include almonds and hazelnuts.

    Oats: the long cooking kind takes only 5 minutes and is a better source of fiber than quick cooking. Oats have been shown to decrease cholesterol. Oats are not just for breakfast add them to meatloaf or meat balls for extra fiber.

    Blueberries: the miracle berry, full of vitamins and antioxidants. Blueberries in a salad are an extra treat. Add a handful of blueberries in the blender with a fruit smoothie.

    Garlic: great for cooking and for your health. Reduces cholesterol and blood pressure. Garlic mellows considerably when cooked.
