Weight loss isn’t simple. You have to know what your proper weight goals are and then consider medical factors, lifestyle and dietary needs and preferences. While we here at Odom Health & Wellness can customize a package (within your budget) to ensure your medical history, dietary needs and fitness requirements are all addressed, we thought listing the top 5 super foods for weight loss would be a good start in the right direction.

Here are our top 5 picks for weight loss super foods;

#1. Apples. Besides being a low-calorie snack, all apples contain antioxidants that suggest the prevention of metabolic syndrome, a condition marked by excess belly fat or an “apple shape.”

#2. Eggs. Yes, eggs. Even with the yolk, when consumed in moderation this protein is good for you and helps promote weight loss.

#3. Kale. Many people are afraid of this veggie. Why? It tastes delicious and it is only 34 calories for a cup of raw Kale. A cup of Kale also contains 1.3 grams of fiber, as well as a hearty helping of iron and calcium.

#4. Any type of lentil. Yes, lentils are amazing because this legume are a confirmed belly flattener. Eating Lentils helps prevent insulin spikes that cause your body to create excess fat, especially in the abdominal area.

#5. Pomegranate seeds. Forget the juice, go for the seeds. Why? Pomegranate seeds are loaded with folate and disease-fighting antioxidants. Plus, the seeds are low in calories and high in fiber.
