When it comes to succeeding with your weight loss diet, the most questions I receive have to do with what to eat (followed closely by exercises to lose stomach fat).

The easiest thing I tell my clients to do is to add the following fat fighting, weight loss diet foods.

#1 Almonds – Almonds are always a great addition to your overall diet - just don't pervert them.fat burning diet foods

They’re a powerhouse of nutrients, plus they’re loaded with fiber, protein and healthy fats.

You can take them anywhere and not have to worry about making a mess. They taste good and they’re a perfect afternoon pick-me-up because of the nutrient breakdown and the lack of simple sugars.

A couple precautions, though. Don’t eat too many at once because they are calorie-dense. Measure out about ¼ cup and stick them in a portable container. Or if you want to take some with you to work, or anytime you know you’ll be gone for many hours, take a couple servings and split them up.

Also, when I say that almonds are a great weight loss diet food that means in their raw ‘unadulterated’ state.

No smoked, salted, honey-roasted, or any other type of ‘topping’ should be added to almonds (or any other type of nut) because you will turn a healthy, fat fighting snack into a bad for you junk food.

It’s the equivalent of eating from a veggie try and putting spoonfuls of ranch dressing on your carrots and broccoli. Do it at your own risk, and don’t say I said it was OK.

#2 Spinach - If you want to make a salad, be sure to add lots of spinach leaves to it. The same goes for a sandwich, omelet, wraps, or any other place you think it would be beneficial.

It’s low in calories, but high in fiber, B vitamins and lots of other vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients.

One side note with this weight loss diet food, and lettuce in general, stay away from iceberg lettuce. It’s a pretty worthless food that’s largely made up of water and has virtually no nutrient profile.

#3 Apples - There’s a reason they say "An apple a day keeps the doctor away". They’re loaded with fiber, vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients and are one of the easiest and most portable fruits around.

Every morning before I leave the house for my training studio, I grab 2 apples and some other type of fruit, like an orange or some chopped pineapple.

I chose apples, but you could substitute pretty much any fruit in here. Fruit does not make you fat. I don’t know who started saying that, but it seems like there’s not a month that goes by where I hear some celebrity say they got rid of fruit and it helped them lose weight. So stop asking "Will fruit make me fat?", because it won’t. I don’t care what diet guru comes out to say otherwise, he’s lying.

#4 Broccoli - Ok, so this weight loss diet food might be tough to stomach for many folks, but you should include a few servings of it a week in your weight loss diet.

Not only is it loaded with fiber, but it’s also loaded with phytonutrients – powerful antioxidants that help prevent cancer, and other diseases.

You can chop it up and add it to a salad, or eat it raw or steamed as side dish or snack.

#5 Black beans - Black beans are a food that not many people consider when thinking about weight loss diet foods, but they are. They’re loaded with protein and fiber and are low in fat.

Beans are especially good if you’re not a meat eater. Just make sure they’re not refried or any other type of fried. They should be as close to their natural state as possible when purchasing otherwise they can be turned from a fat fighting food to a fat gaining food.

Did you notice anything about those 5 weight loss diet foods…

OK, now that I’ve given you those weight loss diet foods, did you notice anything from food to food?

Go back and re-read if you didn’t notice any similarities.weight loss foods

They’re all loaded with fiber. Fiber is very important when it comes to losing your stomach.

Not only is it good for you, but also it helps make you feel full and it helps ‘clean’ out your digestive system. Very beneficial things for all parents.

I also want to give you a little bit of advice when it comes to grocery shopping. A lot of clients ask how they’re supposed to know what foods they should buy and which ones they should stay away from.

When you go to the grocery store, what does the perimeter of the store contain? Fresh produce, dairy products, fresh juices, deli counter, frozen produce, etc.

Now what’s in the middle of the store? Breads, processed junk foods, cereals, candy, pop, boxed ‘dinners’, etc.

So make sure that most of your time is spent on the perimeter of the store before heading in to the center. Plus don’t go shopping hungry. If you’re hungry, your good habits get thrown out the window in favor of any comfort and tasty treats.
