Best Winter Foods for Weight Loss

There’s no reason you can’t emerge from the winter season looking fit, svelte and ready to rock your skinny jeans.

Sure, there are lots of creamy soups, cookies, casseroles, and Netflix marathons, but at the same time, there are tons of seasonal superfoods high in the right nutrients to help you lose weight. Here are three top winter foods for weight loss. They are compiled by Prevention magazine, published by Rodale Inc. of Emmaus, with the help of Jessica Levinson, nutritional counselor and consultant at Nutritioulicious.

BRUSSELS SPROUTS

The cruciferous vegetable du jour is basically a tiny nugget of awesomeness. Just 10 sprouts deliver 6 grams of protein and 7 grams of fiber, making them one of the most filling veggies around — and all for just 80 calories!

PEARS

Bosc and Anjou pears — two winter varieties — have tons of fiber, with one medium fruit containing 6 grams, or about a quarter of your daily value. Most of the fiber is in the skin, so be sure not to peel them. For extra slimming benefit, add a handful of almonds, which will help balance the sugar in the fruit and, thanks to their high amounts of magnesium, help curb junk-food cravings.

POMEGRANATE SEEDS

Pomegranate seeds, or arils, pack a weight loss secret weapon that their liquefied counterpart doesn’t have: fiber! What’s more, they’re super-low in calories — and super-easy to extract from fruit. Try sprinkling them on some oatmeal.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dear Patients:

Our patients, employees and family are our top priority at Long Island Spine Specialists, P.C.

We ask you to not visit any of our locations if you have symptoms such as fever, sneezing, coughing and possible shortness of breath.

Please cancel your appointment and re-schedule once you are feeling better and are no longer suffering with symptoms.

Only non-symptomatic patients will be seen. No exceptions.

Accompanying family members – including children – are asked to remain in the waiting area and will not be allowed to enter the exam rooms.

During this time of high concern regarding the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) we are taking extra precautions to maintain the highest possible standards of safety and cleanliness. Please be advised that we are carefully following recommendations from both the CDC and WHO and are here to help guide you through this time if needed.

Some steps we are taking to keeping safe:

  1. We know how important cleanliness is and always maintain the highest standards of cleanliness. To further offer you peace of mind, we have increased the frequency of the cleaning of our office.
  2. Rest assured that hand washing is strictly followed. Hand sanitizer is available to all staff and patients.
  3. Additionally, if you have recently traveled to a country with high rates of the coronavirus or have been on a cruise, please reschedule your visit for at least 14 days from your return date. We will gladly accommodate your needs to reschedule. At that time, a telehealth interface can be arranged if necessary.
