Fiber can help block some of the fat that you consume. They are known to reduce high blood pressure and even wrinkles! Try some blueberry pancakes tomorrow morning.

7. Yogurt

Yogurt will be your best friend in weightloss. Dieters who choose yogurt burn 78% more fat, reduce waistlines, and stay full through the morning. The calcium reduces fat absorption and keeps blood sugar levels steady. On top of that, it also boosts you immune system. Try one as a mid-morning snack or even a post-workout snack.

8. Chiles

The capsaicin in chiles causes the body to burn extra calories 20 minutes after consumption, and inhibits growth of fat cells. Spice up your night with a spicy meal or snack on some bell peppers throughout the afternoon.

9. Broccoli

It can help keep you full for long periods of time. It truly is a super vegetable. Eat it as a sidedish to any meat to keep your body strong and lean.
