An apple a day can keep the fat at bay. This delicious, portable fruit is an ideal snack, loaded with water and both soluble and insoluble fiber, which are great for weight loss. Soluble fiber helps prevent spikes in blood sugar that cause cravings, while insoluble fiber helps you feel full. A medium-sized apple is approximately 85% water with 5g of soluble fiber, which makes it a perfect snack. Apples also have a flavonoid known as quercetin, which is shown to help fight cancer, promote healthy lungs and minimize cholesterol damage.
There is a misconception that it’s best to eat only egg whites, but it is okay to eat the whole egg. It is delicious, and the yolk contains half the protein. Protein such as that contained in egg yolk aids in the release of glucagon, the hormone that promotes fat burning and fights off stomach fat. Not only does the egg yolk contain vitamin E, it also keeps you full longer. Boil a dozen eggs to snack on throughout the week.
