Foods that have a high water content tend to fill up more space in your stomach

What do foods with a high water content do for weight loss?

Foods that have a high water content tend to fill up more space in your stomach. This will signal to your body that you have had enough to eat and that you have less space left for other foods.

Examples of food with a high water content

Fruits and vegetables tend to hold a lot of water as well as nutrients, antioxidants and fibre – all of which are good for your body! In addition, they are low in calories, which is great for weight loss!

Fruits that have a good water content include watermelon, berries, melons, grapefruit, apples, oranges, and pears amongst others. Vegetables that have a relatively high water content include lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes, celery, radish, as well as cabbage. Consider including a few options of both fruit and vegetables in your eating plan to support your weight-loss efforts.

Consult a professional

Always consult a dietician if you require assistance in putting a meal plan together. In addition, you should always check with your doctor before making any drastic changes to your diet, especially if you are under medication or suffer from any medical condition that has an effect on your diet.
