    Smart Food Choices Keep Extra Fat Out

    Trying to keep extra fat out? You don't need to make complicated lifestyle changes or plan something that seems difficult to adhere to. All you need is to incorporate some smart food choices, portion control and a bit of physical activity. There should be a greater emphasis on choosing healthful foods out of the three if you want to keep yourself slender. (Image source:Thinkstock.com)

    Apples

    Apple is an excellent source of dietary fibre, which contributes to a healthy digestive system, decreased cholesterol and zero weight gain. Apart from fibre, vitamins and minerals not only satiate one but also help manage weight. (Image source:Thinkstock.com)

    Eggs

    If you want to stay slender, try giving your breakfast a protein makeover. The key to weight management could be as simple as having two eggs for breakfast. These enhance satiety, thus lowering the overall calorie intake. You will feel full after breakfast and will be less likely to reach for unhealthy snacks later on. (Image source:Thinkstock.com)

    Whole Grains

    Replace processed, white flour-based products with nutrient-rich whole grains. Whole grain foods give you a healthy dose of fibre that slows digestion and keeps you full for longer. (Image source:Thinkstock.com)

    Cottage Cheese

    Cottage cheese is as filling as eggs or whole grains. It has plenty of protein and calcium to give you enough energy to last without eating for three to four hours. Make some space for cottage cheese in your diet wagon. (Image source:Thinkstock.com)

    Spinach

    You can eat volumes of veggies that have much less calories than most other foods, particularly meat foods. Spinach, in particular, is an excellent food option to keep your energy levels up. Rich in iron, spinach supplies oxygen to your cells to produce energy and burn fat. (Image source:Thinkstock.com)

    Fresh Fruits and Steamed Vegetables

    Fresh fruits, raw or steamed veggies, serve those best who are trying to lose weight. These are low-calorie, low-fat snacking options that can be eaten when hunger pangs strike. (Image source:Thinkstock.com)

    Skimmed Milk Products

    Always look for milk that is skim or has less fat. A low-fat, plain yoghurt rather than sour cream mixed in the creamy mashed potatoes makes a big difference. (Image source:Thinkstock.com)

    Plain Water

    Sipping water from time to time is a smart choice. Water fills you up and drinking it cold may even help in speeding up your resting metabolism. You can also add it to seasonal fruits like watermelon and strawberries or herbs such as ginger and mint. (Image source:Thinkstock.com)
