Season Foods to Keep Winter Weight Off

Holidays, cold weather, and busy schedules are just some of the reasons some people struggle to keep the winter weight off. Many people tend to gain a few pounds during the winter months and some people prefer to put workouts on hold until the spring. However, eating a healthy diet can significantly help maintain your ideal weight. So, we present you some of the best season foods to keep winter weight off.

Sweet Potatoes

A staple of holidays, sweet potatoes are known as one of the healthiest foods with a very low glycemic index. Sweet potatoes keep blood sugars level during the winter months and these delicious potatoes are also packed with satiating fiber, which fills you up.

Grapefruit

A traditional winter fruit, grapefruit is associated with weight-loss as research has shown that this citrus fruit can help reduce body fat and as well as total body weight. A common ingredient in weight-loss supplements, grapefruit is a top source of vitamin C, which experts believe can boost fat-burning during exercise, and is high in water.

Oatmeal

Need a healthy hot breakfast for the cold winter months? Oatmeal is the answer. Loaded with prebiotic fiber, oatmeal boosts beneficial bacteria in the gut, and influences how the body stores up fat. Top your hot oats with Greek yogurt for additional probiotic. Plus, some studies suggest that oatmeal can help keep hunger at bay for hours, making you eat up to 50% less at lunch.

Swiss Chard

Swiss chard is loaded with calcium and magnesium which are known to keep you bones strong and also work to help satiate appetite. Known as the official green of winter, Swiss chard contains very high amounts of vitamins particularly vitamin K, A and C.
