Dec 17th 2014 at 10:05 PM

Your diet is the true key to good health and a comfortable life. If, like most over eager dieters, you reduce your food intake drastically then you need to be careful about including super healthy foods in your diet. The top list of healthy foods to eat will help you plan your diet carefully so that you get vitamins, minerals and other vital nutrients in adequate quantities from the food you eat instead of having to depend on nutritional supplements. When it comes to the top tens of healthy food, you should include as many as possible in your diet in order to achieve your weight loss goals in a healthy manner.

Low Fat Plain Yogurt. Also known as Greek Yogurt, this is a very good source of protein which enables you to keep your metabolic rate at a high level. It also contains healthy bacteria which improve your digestion and thereby enables proper absorption of nutrients. Avoid having sweetened yogurts, with or without fruits added.

Eggs. They are a wonderful source of proteins, vitamins and minerals. A breakfast containing eggs will give you plenty of energy for the day and will keep you feeling full for longer.

Salmon. This is a very good source of omega-3 fatty acids in addition to proteins. It is also a great source of iron. Make sure to include this food in your diet twice or thrice a week at the very least.

Spinach. These green leave contain a great deal of fiber and they enable excellent digestion. They also contain calcium and vitamins.

Beans. Dried beans such as garbanzo, kidney or black beans are a rich source of proteins, fiber and vitamins. They enable you to eat filling meals that don’t contain lots of calories.

Nuts. They are an excellent source of proteins and healthy fats. Almonds, pistachios and walnuts are great but the humble peanut is also very good.

Brocolli. This cruciferous vegetable is rich in fiber as well as vitamins and anti-oxidants.

Sweet Potatoes. They are a great substitute for potatoes and are a rich source of vitamin C, potassium and calcium. They can be cooked in many different ways to add heft to a diet.

Berries. Rich in phytonutrients and antioxidants, berries also have lots of fiber which keeps blood sugar under control. Top ten lists of weight loss foods will be incomplete without them.

Green Tea. An important component of top 10 lists because of its anti-oxidant content which helps keep metabolism at a high rate.
