74. Whole wheat bread
“Whole grains, including whole wheat, contain fiber, important for weight loss because it helps slow digestion,” Kissane says. Whole wheat bread also contains B-vitamins, which are important for energy metabolism. Specifically, whole wheat bread is full of one specific B-vitamin, folate, which is a cofactor in the synthesis of amino acids and, therefore muscle building. “Make sure to choose 100 percent whole wheat bread, though, and each slice should have 3 or more grams of fiber per serving,” Kissane adds. Pair a slice with a protein source, such as turkey or peanut butter, for an even greater weight loss benefit she adds.
