Best food to eat for weight loss

There are no magic foods that by themselves cause weight loss (sorry to disappoint you in this blog). However, there are foods that have high nutrient density and low calorie density that can assist with weight loss when incorporated more frequently into the diet. By swapping out convenience and processed foods with these nutrient dense foods, you will feel more satisfied and your cells will be nourished.
