A Simple Guide To The Best Diet Foods

By: Jon Allo
When you are trying to lose weight it can be a bit of challenge trying to find the best diet foods to eat and knowing which foods to never eat. Research has shown that the body senses it is full by the volume of food and not the number of calories consumed. That's why water-rich foods, sometimes known as negative calorie foods, are the best diet foods. Negative calorie foods are those which take more calories to digest than what is contained in the food itself.

Foods that have a high water content also have a high fibre content. The good news is that they are low in calories so you can eat them without having to worry about the effects on your waistline! When you eat water-rich foods before or during your meal, you will feel fuller, and therefore you'll eat fewer high-calorie foods and ultimately eat less calories during that meal. So what are the foods with a high water content that can fill you up quickly?

Vegetables and Fruits.

Some of the fruits and vegetables that are foods with high water content and nutrient levels include spinach, broccoli, cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots, watermelon, berries and apples.

Dairy Products That Are Low-fat or Fat-free.

You can still have dairy products like milk, Greek yogurt and cottage cheese but ensure that they are either low-fat or fat-free. Also there are some great dairy alternatives, such as almond, soy and rice milks. All are low in fat and calories.

Soups And Broths.

Vegetable or tomato based soups or soups made with chicken or beef broth all contain lots of water and not many calories. Avoid from cream-based soups. For example a cup of mushroom bisque can have over 400 calories while the same amount of minestrone soup has only 112 calories.

Your Best Diet Food Plan.

If you start your meal with one of the above foods, you'll eat fewer calories during your main course. You can make a tasty first course with a bowl of broth-based soup or a green salad (leave out the cheese or croutons). These dishes will fill you up so you'll not eat as much of the main meal that may be high in calories.

When you prepare vegetables you can keep them healthy and avoid adding calories by steaming them. Avoid frying or cooking your vegetables with creams or butter. Steaming preserves most of the nutrients that would be otherwise lost in many of the other preparation processes that use high heat. You can add more flavour by putting spices in with the vegetables.

If you're having a low-calorie meal don't ruin it with a high-calorie drink. Drinking plain water is your best option. You can squeeze in a little fresh lemon if you want to add some flavour. Sparkling water or unsweetened ice tea are other alternatives. Steer clear of high-calorie sports drinks and drink alcohol or fruit juices in small quantities or not at all. If you enjoy a glass of milk when you're eating, stick to skimmed milk or one of the milk alternatives.
