The new year always comes with a wave of resolutions. Among them, lots of people looking to improve their diet, get back to the gym and lead healthier lives. Gyms receive as much as a 15% increase in membership registrations in January. While we can’t help you on the gym membership front, here’s a list of meals that can help you with your weight loss journey.

Bowl of vegetables



This should help serve as a guide to what you should incorporate into your diet, and if you order meals from Jumia Food this will help you know what meals to order while on your weight loss journey.

Eggs

High in protein and fat, eggs are great if you want something that will keep you full and won’t have you hungry in another hour. Great if taken with a cup of tea or coffee, it’s the ideal breakfast on your weight loss journey.



Vegetables

Leafy greens and cruciferous vegetables play an important role in any weight loss sojourners journey. Low in calories and carbohydrates and packed with essential nutrients and vitamins, as well as antioxidants to aid your weight loss process.



Fish

Fish is loaded with healthy fats, high protein and is equally low in calories and has all the nutrients to keep you healthy and sharp through the day.



White Meat

White meat has less fat than red meat. So for a weight loss journey, white meat such as birds – chicken, turkey, pheasant, guinea fowl, duck – as well as rabbit meat and pork are ideal for your meat cravings.



Boiled Potatoes

An adult can live healthily solely on potatoes for the rest of their lives. It is practically the most nutritious food known to man. It has a little of every nutrient that you need. It is also very filling. In the word of Millenials, it has the range.



Soups

Soups are great for weight loss. However, to incorporate soups into your weight loss diet you will have to prepare them yourself. This is to avoid the fat-laden palm oil that is used in preparation for most African soups. So whatever type of soup, from Ogbono to Afang, go ahead and make it but reduce the amount of oil, or do without it entirely.


Nuts

Nuts are very nutritious and are suitable for keeping the hunger away while on a weight loss journey. Rich in protein, essential oils, and fiber, nuts are a great choice for a snack to have on your office table and munch on as opposed to having a full meal when you are feeling pangs of hunger while on your weight loss journey.




Whole Grains (Oats)
I love oats. They are filling, one bowl in the morning and I can go without food for the rest of the day. Oats, like other whole grains, contain lots of fiber which are essential for a weight loss diet as they help bowel movement, and keeps you feeling full for longer.



Full Fat Yogurt

Unless you are lactic intolerant, Yogurts are a great addition to your diet while working to lose weight. Low-fat yogurt is usually loaded with sugar, so its best you consume the full-fat variety. Don’t be scared though, the full fat doesn’t mean it is bursting with cholesterol.



Fruits.

Undoubtedly one of your best friends on your weight loss journey. Fruits have great nutrients to keep you healthy, hydrated and the natural sugar will not keep you from reaching your weight loss goals.
