Exercise is vital but … What are the four best foods to lose weight?

Slim down is not easy. It requires physical effort and in many occasions also monetary, all in pursuit of getting 'the best version of yourself' or that body with which you have been dreaming for a long time. As it is not easy, sometimes it is quite difficult to resist temptation, especially if you do not see changes in your organism despite all the effort you are carrying out.

Of course, pikes between hours. Especially if you are eating a restrictive diet with which you are hungry 24/7. However, pecking is not bad as long as you choose favorable foods, as explained in 'Daily Mail' the nutritionist Susie Burrell: "If you need some inspiration to eat something healthy, these are the best (and worst) options to choose as 'snack'."

Greek yogurt with berries

Contrary to what you might have thought, yogurt contains very little sugar, so it will keep the levels of glucose in your blood. The fruits of the forest or berries are low in calories and are full of fiber, so they are not only rich but also very healthy.

Beans and Chickpeas

Who will not like hummus? Beans and chickpeas are perfect nutritional options because they are low in calories and contain a good source of fiber. "They can be purchased in packages that have portions a little controlled and are perfect as a snack before your next meal, "says Susie, who is also in favor of Japanese edamame (green soybean pods), which are much better than drinking kikos or pipes.

"If you can eat them in a bar, better, so you will make sure you don't eat too much"; Add the nutritionist.

Cheese and crackers

According to Susie, cheese, contrary to what is believed, besides being delicious is an excellent option. "It is rich in nutrients and is packed with protein, calcium and magnesium," he says. "When combined with whole-grain cookies it offers a perfect balance between protein and carbohydrates", Add.

What not

These are the food which, however, you should avoid.

Rice cakes. They are a concentrated source of processed carbohydrates and actually offer very little protein and fiber, even if you think otherwise.

Cookies (normal). They can be delicious but they are definitely not very nutritious and contain flour and sugar.

Fruit juice. Unlike the fruit itself, the juice does not offer the fiber that the fruit itself has. In addition, it contains simple sugars and is a concentrated source of calories.
