Slim Calm Sexy Diet

The following food choices—excerpted from the Slim Calm Sexy Diet—are nutrient dense and have been scientifically proven to fill you up, shrink your appetite, and help you drop pounds.

Apples may get all the nutritional glory, but a pear a day is a good idea too. Pears have especially high levels of a kind of fiber called pectin, which is known to help promote weight loss. Poached, they make a tasty warm dessert; raw, their creamy-gritty texture pairs nicely with cheese for a snack.

When you get bored with leafy greens (and that can happen easily when you're counting calories), artichokes are the way to go. They make an ideal appetizer—one has just 60 calories, and frontloading all the fiber they contain will help you consume fewer calories during the rest of your meal.

Fiber and a high volume of water ensure that tomatoes fill you up for few calories. Plus, tomatoes increase in nutritional power when cooked, so sauté or roast them, make sauce, or blend up tomato soup—on a low-energy day, it's a true comfort food.
