    Oats

    Oats are rich in fiber and adding a serving can help you feel full throughout the day. This can also be added to your smoothie, protein shake, or breakfast for more of a delicious and complete meal.

    Grapefruit

    This tangy fruit can increase fat-storage hormone, lower insulin, and is a great addition to your diet for weight loss. It's also a good source of protein, and because it's at least 90% water, it gives you the benefit of feeling full so you will not overeat!

    Pears

    Just one pear holds about 15% of your daily recommended amount of fiber. This refreshing fruit holds the most amount of fiber beneath the outer surface. So don’t forget to peel!

    Avocados

    There's no reason to be afraid of eating fats—as long as they're the right fats.

    Oleic acid, a compound in avocados' healthy monounsaturated fats, may help us feel fuller.  Avocado is also packed with fiber and protein. Don't overdo it - stick to a quarter or a half of an avocado.
