10 foods to help you lose weight

Diet food 8: Lentils

Lentils are great weight-loss food as they have the power to really satisfy your hunger without packing your body with loads of calories and fat — that's often why lentils feature heavily as a meat substitute — they can make you feel like you've had a meaty dish minus the calories and saturated fat that come with eating meat. Again like celery, lentils are full of fiber and foliate so as well as giving you the full feeling, they are great for digestion and healthy cell growth.
