By Tara

Are there weight loss foods that work to speed your metabolism and actually help the pounds peel off? The answer is yes! There most certainly are foods that will help you to achieve your weight loss goal because of high fiber content, but it is important to combine with exercise. My list of weight loss foods that work all taste great, and are rich in vitamins, antioxidants and fiber. So make sure you include these foods in your daily meal plan.

1 Green Beans

Green BeansGreen Beans top my list of the great weight loss foods that work because of their large content of dietary fiber, low amount of calories and high water content. They can be enjoyed in a salad, morning omelet, or as part of your dinner. However you prepare them, just make sure you include this veggie into your meal plan so you can have these health benefits!

2 Cauliflower

3 Sweet Potatoes

Sweet PotatoesGotta love sweet potatoes, because they are high in fiber, and Vitamin A - and they're low in calories and taste great! Did you know eating 1 sweet potato a day fulfills you Vitamin A daily requirement? Sweet potatoes are not just a holiday meal; make this an occasional side dish of your everyday meal, too. Additionally, sweet potatoes are half the calories of white potatoes which is an added bonus! I enjoy sweet potatoes with grilled chicken for dinner because it is filling, healthy and tastes amazing!

4 Raspberries

RaspberriesThis expensive berry is well worth its price because it has high fiber content, antioxidants, and it tastes sweetly perfect! You can enjoy raspberries in your shake, on your cereal, in a salad, in a bowl to snack on or for dessert. Raspberries are the perfect healthy fruit and well worth the price for this reason!

5 Strawberries

StrawberriesI love strawberries because they taste great, are high in vitamin C, high in fiber and you can enjoy this yummy fruit so many ways! You can enjoy strawberries on a salad, in a healthy smoothie, in strawberry lemonade, in your Greek yogurt or perfectly plain!

6 Broccoli

BroccoliDid you know broccoli is high in fiber and vitamin C? It is loaded with vitamins and it tastes great. I enjoy dipping raw broccoli in fresh dip or steaming and preparing healthy low sodium spin of the Chinese takeout of chicken and broccoli! Broccoli is my favorite veggie because of its health benefits and its great taste!

7 Spinach

SpinachSpinach is referred to as the "strong" vegetable, not just because Popeye ate this for strength, but due to the high amount of iron, folic acid and fiber it is packed with. Served raw, spinach is high in vitamin C, but if you overcook spinach most of its nutrients will be wasted. To avoid losing its high nutritional content I recommend eating spinach raw or steaming it. You can enjoy spinach in your morning shake, in a salad, as a side dish or the star in any of your meals.

Now that you know the best weight loss foods that work, make sure you are including them into your daily meals. How will you prepare your next healthy meal with these great weight loss foods?
