What if I told you that you can eat more but still slim down? By adding these foods to your diet, you can cut out other foods that don't serve your body, yet still promote weight loss. On top of that, you'll NEVER be hungry again, because these foods will fill you up and keep you satisfied.

Here's a list of my top 5 foods for promoting weight loss without leaving you hungry. Go ahead, fill up on these foods, and I promise you'll see the pounds fall off:

Grapefruit

Grapefruits are low in calories, high in enzymes, and full of healthy carbohydrates that will keep you full. There is a compound in the fruit that lowers insulin (the fat-storage hormone) which can lead to weight loss. Cut up a half grapefruit for your next breakfast meal, and see how you feel. 

Cucumbers

With 95% water content, cucumbers are a wonderful low-calorie food for flushing out your system. Sprinkle some cucumbers with lemon juice, a tablespoon of nutritional yeast and some paprika, and you've got a wonderful light lunch or snack. I suggest you choose the Persian cucumbers, as I think they taste better and are sized perfectly for portion control.

Kiwi

Loaded with vitamin c, vitamins, and minerals, kiwi is a slimming food because it keeps things moving in the digestive system. Not only are kiwis delicious, but when eaten on an empty stomach they can do wonders for your slim-plan. Kiwi is a great snack or after-dinner treat.

Kale

Full of fiber, calcium, and nutrients, kale is a green superfood that will lead you to optimum health and wellness. Aim to have some sort of kale every day! Have kale raw, juiced, blended, baked, dehydrated, or sauteed, and you'll be on your way to slim-ville. This leafy green is filling, hearty and delicious ... and the more you eat it, the more you'll crave it. I promise. 

Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are a powerhouse food that will change your life. When mixed with liquid, chia seeds gel up into a pudding-like texture, which is perfect for breakfast, snack or dessert. Mix up some chia seeds with almond milk, dates/maple syrup, and some cacao nibs, and you won't believe that you're making yourself slimmer.
