By: Sheila Reynolds

People tend to get stuck on the whole portion control aspect of dieting; however, what you eat is just as important as how much you eat, both in the size of your waistband and your overall sense of well-being.

Here are our top 15 foods that need to be included in your diet if you want to lose weight effectively and healthfully!

1. Fennel tea reduces cravings and helps with digestion.
2. Apples are low calorie and high in fiber, preventing blood sugar spikes.
3. Beans are high in starch and the fatty acids help to increase fat burning.
4. Crimini mushrooms are high fiber, low calorie and perfect as a substitute for fattier meats.
5. Raspberry ketones regulate the proteins in the body that keep your metabolism running smoothly.
6. Avocados are rich in monounsaturated fat, which actually help you burn fat (especially around the midsection).
7. Pine nuts curb hunger by stimulating the hormones that tell your brain that your stomach is full.
8. Cinnamon helps to slow down how quickly food moves through your stomach.
9. Vinegar stabilizes blood sugar, keeps you feeling full, limits how many carbohydrates your body absorbs, and helps you to better absorb the nutrients in your fruits and vegetables.
10. Chili peppers curb your appetite and potentially increase your metabolism.
11. Green tea keeps you full between meals with a plethora of phytonutrients.
12. Watermelon is high in vitamins and helps to strengthen the immune system.
13. Pumpkin seeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which decrease how much fat your body can actually store.
14. Red lentils are high in fiber and protein, keeping you full and satisfied.
15. Chia seeds up your fiber while lowering bad cholesterol.

Add these to your diet, and watch the weight fall off!
