I need a long list of foods I can eat to lose weight I heard to eat high fiber and protein and low carb foods. I love all kinds of foods. Seafood all meats fruits veggies cheese so I wanna know what I can eat that will help. I’m going to be doing cardio exercises about everyday. I’ll eat about 6 small meals a day to get my metabolism going and drink alot of water. If you have any other helpful hints that will be appreciated!
Here is a list of healthy foods
– Go for natural, organic food
– For fiber, go for plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, high fiber cereals that aren’t high in sugar – for example bran cereals; oatmeal, brown/wild rice, sweet potato, whole grain breads, whole grain and brown rice pastas, nuts, nut butter, etc.
– For protein: beans, eggs, cheese in moderation, cottage cheese, tofu, tempeh, tuna, salmon, etc.
Protein & fiber, along with veggies & fruit will help keep you full =)
~ Greek yogurt or yogurt (nonfat) – Greek yogurt has more protein than regular yogurt
~ Eggs, cheese, cottage cheese (2% is fine), goat cheese, skim milk or goat milk, etc.
~ Fruit & Berries

I looked at ask.com for “high fiber food list” and this is what I found.
There’s a brief explanation about the importance of fiber in your diet and the amount you need. At the bottom of the page is a chart with the list and how much fiber is in each thing.
It’s a good idea to increase the fiber in ones diet even if you’re not trying to lose weight, so you’re doing a good thing for yourself.
So far as proteins are concerned all meats are high in protein, but you’ll want to stick to lean meats. I don’t know if you buy your own food or if you’re still living at home. But ground beef is now labeled for how much fat is in it. So you can have meatloaf or hamburgers so long as you’re using the leaner meats (90% lean or more). Chicken without the skin is a good lean protein. Also, when eaten together beans and rice make a perfect protein. That can be made very low fat if you don’t cook the beans with bacon or ham.
A lot of health eating is just getting in the habit of it. If you’re used to eating a lot of potatoes and mac and cheese you’ll miss those things. But it won’t take long until you’ll really enjoy a diet that’s got lots of fruit and veggies and lean meats in it.
Best of luck!
