Greek Yogurt

When weight loss is your goal, use nonfat Greek yogurt to get the most benefits without the extra calories. A 6-ounce container of plain, nonfat Greek yogurt has 100 calories, 17 grams of protein and 6 grams of carbs. While plain, nonfat regular yogurt has fewer calories, it is higher in carbs and lowers in protein. The same serving of regular yogurt has 95 calories, 10 grams of protein and 13 grams of carbs. Due to its high protein content, Greek yogurt is perfect to eat right before bed. Go for the low-sugar variety if you want even more benefits.

Bananas

Bananas are healthy and nutritious, there is no doubt about that. They are also high in fiber, but low in calories. Most bananas have a low to medium glycemic index, and should not cause big spikes in blood sugar levels compared to other high-carb foods. Although there are no studies that directly examine the effects of bananas on weight, they do have several properties that should make them a weight loss friendly food. If you are trying to lose weight, then there is absolutely nothing wrong with eating bananas as a part of a balanced, real food based diet.

Nuts

As if you needed another excuse to eat nuts, these fatty legumes are a great source of mood-boosting magnesium. Without enough magnesium in your body, the part of the brain that regulates melatonin is thrown off, disrupting your sleep. An uptick in magnesium is what tells animals it’s time to hibernate—for us, not having enough of it may play a role in seasonal affective disorder (SAD), the depression—and carb-craving— a condition brought on by the low light of winter.

How to get your dose: Foods rich in magnesium are also extremely weight loss friendly: protein-rich fish and nuts, lentils, soy and black beans, as well as fiber-rich grains like bran.
