3 Weight Loss Diet Foods
There's a lot of
confusion about what makes a good diet food. Should you buy foods from a diet center that just need to be
popped into the microwave, buy all organic food, or trust the food manufactureres who say their foods are
"healthy?" Here's a quick list of 3 weight loss diet

There’s a lot of misinformation, lies and myths out there about what a good weight loss diet food is.
The marketers and grocery stores will tell you that a good weight loss diet food comes in an
individual package and that it’s some sort of candy bar looking thing that either tastes horrible, or it tastes
like a candy bar.
The truth is those things are usually just as bad for you as a candy bar is, no matter what
the marketing or spokesperson says.
A true weight loss diet food has to have a few common traits.
It must be as close to "real" as possible. It should not be some overly-processed food
product that looks like a candy bar and tastes like cardboard.
It should be as close to natural as possible.
Second, it should be high in fiber, protein and vitamins and minerals. Your body needs these
things and if you want to lose weight, you must pay attention to them.
Having said that, here are a few of my favorite weight loss diet foods.
Almonds – Almonds are an excellent weight loss
diet food because they’re high in protein, fiber and healthy fats. They’re also very portable, which makes them an
excellent on-the-go snack.
Apples – Just like almonds, apples are also
loaded with fiber and vitamins and phytonutrients, plus they’re easy to take anywhere.
Not only that, but they’re also low in calories. I know you may have heard that fruit isn’t
something you should eat if you’re on a weight loss diet, but that’s a terrible lie.
Broccoli – Broccoli is another awesome weight
loss diet food because it’s loaded with fiber. Fiber helps you feel full, which means you won’t be able to eat as
much at one time.
It’s also loaded with phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals, which will help keep your immune
system healthy and strong.
Did you happen to notice anything about those 3 weight loss diet
For one thing, they’re all loaded with fiber, vitamins, phytonutrients and minerals. All
things that the body needs, regardless of whether you want to lose weight or just be healthy.
Another very important factor with those 3 weight loss foods is that they’re all portable.
Meaning you can take them with you pretty much anywhere without making a mess or worrying about them getting
That’s something that’s very important to consider with a weight loss diet food. There are
going to be many times when you can’t take the time to prepare a good meal. You’ve got too many things going on in
your life and it’s ridiculous to think that you’ll always be able to be home for a meal.
However, if you plan ahead and pack some fat burning foods like those 3 listed above, you
won’t sabotage your weight loss diet and will stick to your goals.
