The key to finding superfoods for weight loss is going back to the basics, according to Libby Mills, MS, RD, LDN, spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. “You need to look for nutrient-dense foods.” Nuts, particularly almonds, fall into that category because they’re packed with protein and healthy fats that will keep you feeling full longer. Here are some more healthy, energy-boosting snacks.
Look for raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, and more: They all have a high water content plus plenty of fiber. “They’re sweet, tart, and a filling choice for weight loss,” says Marisa Moore, RDN, a registered dietitian nutritionist in Atlanta, Georgia.
