Returning to a childhood comfort food hardly seems like a weight loss tactic, but cereal can make for a healthy meal when you’re in a hurry—as long as you don’t pick a brand with a rabbit on the box. “High fiber whole-grain cereals not only provide ample fiber, but are also loaded in B vitamins, antioxidants, and trace minerals such as iron, zinc, copper, and magnesium,” says Zuckerbrot. Top your bowl with skim milk and a few sliced almonds and use a measuring cup to keep portions in check, advises Taub-Dix.
Cutting calories? No need to subside on spinach and egg whites alone. Stock your kitchen with a variety of healthy foods that are high in protein and fiber and you’ll feel satisfied enough to stick to a weight loss plan past January.
