Weight loss and nutrition experts say there are two basic categories of foods that can be considered "keeping it off superfoods" because they fill your tummy without piling on the calories...fruits and vegetables.

You might be wondering; what is the nutrient that gives fruits and vegetables that "staying power?"?

Hey, surprise...it's our old friend...FIBER!

So, if fruits and vegetables are in the "keeping-it-off superfood group," fiber may well be the "keeping-it-off super-nutrient."

Protein is another super-nutrient.

It's becoming more scientifically accepted that protein may help to curb appetite. Additionally, protein, like fiber, has staying power, and can slightlyboost your metabolism in the process.  But, it is imperative that you choose your proteins wisely, Little Grasshopper. Like all other foods, if you’re eating more than your body needs, it’ll show up on the scale as a gain, not one you would consider positive, instead of a loss.

The following is a short list of superfoods which are smart, low-calorie choices which will positively benefit your weight loss efforts, while often providing other health benefits as well:

Green Tea - Researchers suspect that the catechins (helpful phytochemicals) in green tea may trigger weight loss by stimulating the body to burn calories and mildly decrease body fat. So indulge in either a hot cup or a nice tall iced glass of green tea.
 
Broth- or tomato-based soup - Soups can help reduce hunger before meals and increase your feeling of fullness.  Additionally, tomato products help provide lycopene.
 
Low-calorie green salads - Having a low-calorie salad - which is not defined as one that’s loaded with croutons, high fat dressings, and cheese - as a first course can help you feel full, thereby reducing how much you eat with your main course.  Wisely choose your ingredients, and its high fiber content can be the key to helping you fight cravings later in the day.
 
Yogurt - Including dairy products as part of your healthy diet may promote your weight loss efforts as well. Choosing a yogurt as a snack may help you fight off hunger pangs due to its combination of protein and carbohydrate. Yogurt also contains live cultures which act as a probiotic and help preserve and replenish the good bacteria found in a healthy digestive tract.

Beans – A great combination of fiber and protein, beans help you feel full longer, which means they may work to curb your between-meal appetite.

Water – Water is your body’s lifeblood, and you should be drinking it through your day. It’s a great no-calorie beverage, and you can get it by drinking unsweetened tea, flavored unsweetened mineral water, regular water with lime or lemon, or even by eating a cucumber or watermelon.  In addition to helping flush toxins from the body, it can also help you feel full.  So when those hunger pangs strike, try drinking a glass of water before grabbing that snack.

High-Fiber, Whole-Grain Cereal - Whole grains in general help boost fiber and the nutritional value of your meal.  One of the easiest ways to give your daily diet a whole-grain boost is to have a bowl of higher-fiber whole-grain cereal as breakfast or a snack.
