When you think about losing weight, your mind might automatically wander to eating less, skipping meals, and developing other unhealthy habits. Instead, it’s important to focus on healthier ways to lose weight. Some ideas may include changing your exercise routine as well as switching up your dieting habits. One important factor, however, is to make sure you eat and drink to help you lose weight.
Instead of focusing on just one or the other, you can find combinations of food and drink that pair together nicely and help promote weight loss. We spoke with Kimberly Snodgrass, RDN, LD, spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, who laid out the best food and drink combinations for weight loss by meals of the day: breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner, to make sure you get the most out of your weight loss efforts.
These winning combinations generally feature protein as an important food group, as it helps you to feel fuller longer. The drinks, on the other hand, have been shown to support metabolism and digestion to help your gut remain happy and healthy.
