When it comes to low fat foods, many people look for a list of fat-free foods or low-fat foods to lose weight. It is a way for them to reduce the amount of total calories they consume in order to attain and sustain their weightloss goals.

 

Unfortunately, when people opt for low fat foods, they tend to turn to conveniently packaged foods that are marketed as “low fat.” Discerning between the packaging claims can be a tedious job, and sadly when food is stripped from fat, such as dairy, cereals, and butters, the flavor that comes from fat is replaced with artificial flavors and sugar.

 

For a person conscious about losing weight, adding in artificial ingredients or extra sugar in their diets will be counter intuitive to a low-fat diet, and bring more ill effects to the body than benefits.

 

3 Types of Food that are Naturally Low in Fat

 

When it comes to low fat whole foods, it’s best to stick to foods that are naturally low in fat. There are many whole foods out there that are diet-friendly, unprocessed and filling to meet your low-fat standards while nourishing your body.

 

A diet consisting of steamed veggies and chicken, for instance, is high in two nutrients known to support your weight-loss efforts: protein and fiber. Vegetables are packed with water and fiber, which add a lot of bulk without contributing calories. Instead of cutting down on food portions, this lets you eat enough to feel full without ruining your daily calorie goal. The extra bulk from fiber distends the stomach, which signals your brain that you’re full. The fiber from veggies and protein in chicken slow the movement of food through the stomach and small intestine, which makes you feel full longer.

 

All-Natural Chicken

 

All-natural and organic chicken is an ideal food for people on a low-fat diet. It is a naturally low-fat food that’s high in protein. Choosing cuts of white meat like the chicken breast with the skin removed, will give you a high protein and low-fat ingredient to work into many meals.

 

  

Leafy Green Vegetables

 

Leafy green vegetables have naturally low or zero fat content. Instead, they’re filled with fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that our bodies need to stay nourished and energized. Fill up your plate with a variety of leafy green vegetables such as kale, spinach, collard greens, and salad greens to fill up your body with health boosting nutrition without adding fat or an excess of calories to your diet.

 

Organic Ancient Grains

 

Ancient grains such as quinoa, sorghum, teff, and kamut are delicious, filled with fiber and minerals, and are extremely versatile in the kitchen. The perfect creative companions for a low-fat diet, ancient grains add dimension and excitement to a diet that encourage little to no high fat foods such as red meat and dairy.

  

Conclusion

 

All-natural chicken, organic leafy green vegetables, and ancient grains fortunately go well together into a variety of dishes. Try a Hainanese Chicken with Quinoa recipe or Sorghum Veggie Rice to experience the benefits of a low fat diet without feeling like you’re missing out on hearty meals.

 

You’ll soon learn that a low-fat diet doesn’t have to make you feel deprived at all. It’s simply a matter to choosing whole foods that are naturally low in fat. Incorporate these naturally low-fat ingredients into your low-fat diet for your weight loss goals. Enjoy and explore the new dishes that you get to try and reap the health benefits losing weight from good nutrition.
