There’s just so much about the hot weather that makes it easier to eat the best summer foods for weight loss like fresh fruit and veggies and lots of yummy salads.

And even better, our favorite summer fruits and veggies are nutrition packed.

Make fighting fat even more delicious and easy with these top foods for summer weight loss.

1. Blueberries

Blueberries

Researchers at the University of Michigan discovered a diet rich in blueberries may alter how our bodies store and process sugar for energy and, at the same time, reduce belly fat (excluding those blueberry muffins you wolf down every day for breakfast).

Include in your summer weight-loss regime and use these blue beauties as a healthy snack between meals.

2. Cabbage

Cabbage

Cabbage is rich in minerals and water;

eating the stuff regularly helps your body to release excess fluid, which in turn reduces water retention and weight.

Prepare cabbage slaw for your BBQ party by all means, but leave out the diet-busting mayo.

Opt for a cabbage and hemp salad instead.

Tasty with burgers and other barbequed meat.

3. Zucchini

Zucchini

Zucchini are low in calories and high in fiber and in the summer, a cheap ingredient for a multitude of healthy meals.

Versatile, zucchini can help you to cut carbs and calories with classic pasta dishes, in salads or even as iced soup.

4. Cucumber

Cucumber

Just like human bodies, cucumbers comprise mostly (95%) water.

They are a natural diuretic, helping our bodies to lower water retention and reduce bloating.

Why not serve a delicious side dish of a sweet and sour cucumber salad at your next summer party?2

Or as a classic iced soup?

5. Eggplant

Eggplant

Low on the glycemic index, eggplants are also low in calories and carbs, but high in essential nutrients.

In plentiful supply when in season, they are cheap and versatile.3
