Top 9 Superfoods to Lose Weight

Reviewed by Kimberly Cabe, FNP-BC of Forum Health Rochester Hills

As in many other places around the world, superfoods are becoming an increasingly popular topic amongst those looking to lose weight. Why are these foods gaining such attention? Perhaps it’s their appetite-controlling properties or their low-calorie impact — or maybe it’s because they simply taste so good! Whatever the reason, they have the potential to make a significant difference, helping people reach their weight loss goals a lot quicker.


So what are these superfoods? You may be surprised to find out you probably have most of them in your kitchen already. 

  1. Green Tea
  2. Yogurt
  3. Broth-based Soup
  4. Low-calorie Green Salad
  5. Light Diet snacks
  6. High-fiber whole-grain breakfast cereal
  7. Beans
  8. Grapefruit
  9. Water


Each one of these foods has been linked with helping facilitate weight-loss for one reason or another.


The secret behind these foods, and foods like these, is their fiber and protein content along with their ability to make you feel full on less calories for longer periods of time. Because one of the foundational keys to weight-loss is consuming less calories than you will burn off during the course of a day, it’s important to eat foods that will help you do that. Though these dietary staples won’t cause you to lose weight on their own, they can help you consume less calories, and that’s a big deal when it comes to achieving better health through successful medical weight loss.
