1. Berries

Berries such as strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries are useful superfoods for weight loss because they taste sweet without the extra calories of sugary snacks. And ever-versatile, they can be eaten alone, paired with yogurt, or paired together.

2. Almonds

Almonds are another versatile, nutritionally-rich, food packed with protein, fiber, and healthy fat that’ll help keep you feeling filled up. Despite being easily digestible, they’re also quite “moreish”, so be sure to select beforehand how many to eat by grabbing just a handful rather than the whole pack!

3. Walnuts

Don’t like almonds? Well, how about the other tree nut walnut? These are likewise nutritionally rich and high in healthy fats. And, like with other nuts, are a great way to curb hunger.

4. Avocados

High in potassium and unsaturated fats, avocados are smooth, creamy, and quite energy-dense, meaning that spreading them on wholemeal bread or crackers can be a healthy way to fill up. Remember: not all fat is bad because the type of fat in avocados promote good heart health.

5. Chickpeas

Rich in protein and fiber—the two important nutrients in weight loss—chickpeas are a great weight loss superfood that work in many dishes like curries and salads, and are used in Greek food and in the Mediterranean diet; a diet commonly thought as being one of the healthiest worldwide and is linked to weight loss.
