Luckily for you, we’ve got a whole list of foods that have been scientifically proven to be able to provide just that kind


Bananas are the perfect daytime snack because they are low in calories and help to feel full for a long period of time. They are a great source of potassium and also help prevent water retention in the body.


Avocados help the body to increase its absorption of other nutrients. It makes digestion in the stomach easier and help your body to maintain a slim waistline.

Chili pepper

Spicy foods like chili peppers have a great boosting effect on your metabolism and also helps to stick to your healthy living goals.


Almonds are the perfect meals for snacks. Just like avocados, they contain monounsaturated fat content which helps your body burn fat and also fight hunger.

This crunchy veggie is also extremely versatile: eat it in a chopped salad, sprinkle on top of yogurt, or munch on cucumber slices with homemade hummus.
