Knowledge is power! I’ve always believed that to be true. Knowing what you should be eating for your health and to get and stay fit is essential for your life. We’ve found a number of things you can eat that will do both. These foods are not only healthy for you, they have almost zero calories helping you to lose weight.

Celery

A crunchy, easy to take with you snack that is very low in calories while also providing a number of health benefits. Celery contains fiber that can help control hunger and help with digestion. The antioxidants contained help to prevent diseases also.

Broccoli

One of my favorites! Broccoli is jam-packed with Vitamins K and C, while also providing potassium and fiber. The fiber this special vegetable contains promotes digestive health and helps to lower cholesterol. Par-boil it and mix it into your favorite stir fry dishes or roast it in the oven with sprinkled parmesan cheese; so delicious.

Watermelon

This refreshing fruit is 92% water, but along with that healthy hydration comes tons of nutrients. Watermelons contain significant levels of Vitamins A, B6 and C, in addition to lycopene, antioxidants and amino acids. The lycopene alone has been linked to heart health, bone health and prostate cancer prevention. Learn the 10 healthy reasons to eat watermelon. Keep cut up watermelon in your refrigerator as often as you can to snack on and stay healthy.

Arugula

This special, peppery, delicious green stands out among all others because it tastes so good. I put it on everything for the flavor and the health benefits. The fact that it is so low in calories is just a bonus. The fiber in arugula cleans out the colon that promote healthy bowel movements. Antioxidants and essential minerals cleanse toxins out of the body also.

Iceberg lettuce

Believe it or not, iceberg lettuce is healthy for you. Even though it is a pale green, this food provides calcium, potassium, Vitamin C and folate. Eating iceberg lettuce enables you to fulfill the daily requirements of numerous vitamins and minerals that keep your immune system healthy.
