1. Whole Chicken

With iron rich dark meat and low fat white meat, chicken provides a lot of options for hunger fighting meals packed with lean protein.

This crunchy vegetable contains next to no calories making them perfect for dipping.

3. Red Grapes

Not only are they sweet and yummy, they contain a compound that blocks fat cells from forming. How helpful is that?

4. Snow Peas
