Foods to Keep You Slim

Yes, believe it or not, there are many foodstuffs and dishes that can actually help you lose weight. Here are a few:
FRESH VEGGIES AND FRUITS. You can eat a lot of fresh veggies and fruits for only a few calories–as opposed to a hamburger, a serving of which can already give you your daily caloric requirement.
SOUPS AND FRESH FRUIT JUICES. Sometimes, some people misconstrue thirst for hunger pangs. Being hydrated is as important in dieting as lower caloric intake. Eating soup for one before every meal can give you that full felling as it has lots of liquid-thus, making you eat less. Fresh fruit juices on the other hand - aside from giving you a full feeling - provide fiber as well.
EAT WHOLE WHEAT, EAT BEANS. Fiber is good and can make you fell full. This is also true in bread - despite its reputation for being crab rich. Whole wheat bread provides one the fiber needed for being full and for digestion. Beans also provide the same service with the added benefit of being a very good protein source.
GOT MILK? DRINK IT? Believe it or not, recent studies indicate that the calcium in milk may actually help inhibit the storage of fat in the body! Indeed, this was observed in people who are already eating a well-balanced and low-fat diet. The calcium also seems to target the midsection. Thus, making a person less fat in that area.
