With so many fad diets and low calorie meals in shiny packaging it’s easy to to forget that you don’t need any fancy gimmicks to lose weight. In fact, there are five natural foods that help you lose weight. They not only helped me lose 265 pounds, but eating them regularly also has kept the weight off!


An apple a day keeps the pounds away… because it helps to grow good bacteria in your gut. In turn, that wages war with the bad bacteria responsible for your dreaded sugar and junk food cravings! Green apples actually work the best, but any fresh apple will do.


Yes, kale is on almost every health food list. But kale makes the cut as one of five natural foods that help you lose weight because because it’s full of fiber. The fiber will help to keep your stomach feeling full for a longer period of time. In turn, you should cut down on unnecessary snacking and the fat and calories that come with it!
