Want to lose weight as you chow down?
Almonds These yummy nuts are high in alpha-linolenic acid, which can accelerate your metabolism of fats.
Berries “These are nature’s candy!” Turns out they’re also your body’s best friends. Strawberries, raspberries and other vitamin C–spiked fruit can supercharge your workout.
Cinnamon Adding 1/4 teaspoon to your plate may prevent an insulin spike—an uptick that tells your body to store fat.
Mustard It’s heaven on a soft pretzel, but mustard may also be a weight loss wonder. Turmeric, the spice that gives mustard its color, may slow the growth of fat tissues, a study in the journal Endocrinology finds.
Oranges This citrus fruit, which contains fat-blasting compounds known as flavones, deserves to be your main squeeze.
Soybeans Reason to toss a half cup on your salad? Soybeans are rich in choline, a compound that blocks the absorption of fat and breaks down fatty deposits.
Sweet potatoes The colorful spuds’ high-fiber content means they keep your insulin steadier.
Swiss cheese Calcium-rich foods reduce fat-producing enzymes and increase fat breakdown, and Swiss has more calcium than many of its cheesy peers.
