Five foods to help you lose 5lbs

If you are trying to lose weight, the best thing to do is to be realistic about it.

Eating iceberg lettuce for breakfast, lunch, and dinner isn’t healthy and, let’s face it, we wouldn’t make it past breakfast.

Instead, try some power foods that are great for helping to keep the weight off and that you can turn into delicious meals that will hold off any cravings.  

1. Salmon
A rich source of protein it will fill you up fast. It is also a great source of omega-3s which will get your metabolism going, as well as vitamin D.

2. Eggs
Full of satiating protein, two eggs as part of your breakfast will slow your hunger and prevent you snacking before lunch.

3. Cucumbers
If you need to snack, this is the answer. Made of almost 90 percent water, cucumbers are virtually calorie free. But their crunchy texture will satisfy your need to nibble.

4. Hazelnuts
Not only good for preventing hunger, hazelnuts are full of monounsaturated fats which actually help to shift the fat in your body.

5. Strawberries
The perfect answer to satisfying your sweet tooth. It has been proven that snacking on strawberries instead of sweets led people to eat 134 fewer calories in their next meal.
