* Nuts - Almonds, macadamia nuts, hazelnuts, walnuts and pecans are great for you. Spice up that yogurt and salad by throwing a few in.

* Steel cut oats - Cook a ΒΌ cup with 1 cup of rice milk (trust me its delicious and you wont need sweetener) for breakfast

* Protein - Protein is a fat burner. How you ask? Well your body burns more calories digesting protein than eating any other type of food. Eating protein also prevents muscle loss when dieting.
