10 Winter Foods That Fight Fat

Bunches of carrotsIn some parts of the country, it’s so cold you don’t even want to step outside to make that trip to the gym and comfort foods are so just easy to grab these days. We get it. But there is a way to lose weight by eating certain foods this winter. Stock up your pantry this season with the following fat-fighting foods and stay fit!

1. Cabbage

Cool weather brings out the “frost-kissed sweetness” of this fiber-rich and versatile veggie. Use as a low-cal wrap for lunch (blanch before rolling for a bit more malleability) or steam wedges and drizzle with flavored oil. If a dinner option is what you’re craving, try tossing shredded cabbage into a stir-fry.

2. Spinach

When it comes to weight loss, fiber is your friend — and spinach offers twice as much fiber as other greens. Plus, its antioxidants can promote increased energy levels on sluggish days. If nibbling the raw stuff doesn’t excite you, try it sautéed with garlic and olive oil.
