Lean meat 
Your body burns more calories digesting proteins than carbs or fat. Want the leanest meat out there? Opt for chicken, but to cut down even more on saturated fat, choose fish. Go for tuna and salmon; they are full of omega-3s, which help prevent stress chemicals that promote fat abs. Stay away from cured meat and sausages
Berries stuff a lot of filling fibres into a tiny package. Just one cup of raspberries has six grams of fibres. But avoid jelly. It is the junk food of the fruit world. It has almost no fibres and contains added sugar. Does a lot of harm.
Whole grains 
The right kinds of carbs are actually good for you. Choose whole grains — their fibres keeps you from getting hungry. Sometimes bread labelled ‘wheat’ are stripped of all of its fibres and nutrients. Look for ‘whole grain’ or ‘100 percent whole wheat’ options.
Your morning snack-attack is caused by a dip in blood sugar levels. Fibre-rich oatmeal stays in your stomach for hours, staving off a doughnut run. Steer clear of the sugary flavoured varieties of oatmeals. Choose the plain variety, and sweeten it with berries.
Green vegetables
If their vitamins and minerals don’t persuade you, maybe their waist-whittling powers will do the trick. Veggies like spinach and broccoli are loaded with fibres and very few calories. Have a salad before a meal and you’ll be satisfied with smaller portions later. Iceberg lettuce has almost no fibres, you can avoid that. Fill your bowl with romaine, arugula, or spinach instead.
