What can I eat for lunch that is filling, but will also help me lose weight?
I am really stuck with good ideas for lunch that are satisfying, and that will help me lose weight.
Do you have suggestions that can I order out for or bring to work for lunch? Thanks – Karen
To be satisfying— but without going overboard on your calories—a meal should have volume. This means that your meal needs healthy fat, protein and complex carbohydrates. Here are a few suggestions:
- Sushi & edamame.
- A half-sandwich with soup or salad.
- Hummus, whole grain pita & crudités.
