“Loaded with a fiber called pectin that slows digestion, apples keep you fuller longer,” said Joy Bauer, Today nutrition expert and founder of Nourish Snacks. “In one study, women who ate three apples a day lost more weight than those who consumed the same number of calories in oatmeal cookies. The apple eaters’ blood sugar dropped, too.”

2. Berries

“[They’re] usually on every weight-management recommendation plan because they are very low in sugar per gram,” explained Rachel Lander-Canseco, a registered dietitian at Keck Medicine of USC. Plus, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and strawberries are full of fiber, which will help you stay fuller and want to eat less.
