72. Winter squash
“The carbohydrate in winter squash is a polysaccharide, meaning it’s many glucose molecules bound together, and this may have insulin-regulating properties which help with weight regulation,” Kissane explains. The combination of carbohydrate and fiber in the winter squash causes it to stay in the digestive system longer, keeping you full. Spaghetti squash is a great, low calorie and high fiber substitution for pasta, while adding butternut squash to soups and stews delivers a sweet taste and nutrient boost. And don’t forget about the seeds from things like pumpkins, which make a great snack because they contain healthy fats, fiber, and protein, Kissane adds.
