6. Greek yogurt
Greek Yogurt is like the superman of healthy food. We’ll start with the most obvious reason why: It’s jam-packed with protein (typically around 17g per cup), particularly casein, which is one of the best types for your body to leverage to build muscle. And because of this high protein count (which is practically double that of regular yogurt, by the way), yogurt is a great food to keep you full and avoid unnecessary snacking, says New York-based nutritionist Jessica Cording, RD. Yogurt also provides calcium, noteworthy since research has linked the nutrient to less weight gain. “Plus, the probiotics in yogurt benefit your GI tract health, which has been studied for its potential role in weight management,” Cording adds. Just stick with plain as the flavored varieties are chock full of sugar.
