When a friend hears that you want to lose weight, she might suggest that you start packing more protein onto your plate. It's what helped her lose 20 pounds, after all.

I think it’s a happy coincidence that January is not only national soup month, but also the peak of people’s efforts to lose weight. Research shows that soups can help you lose weight: in one study, published in the journal Physiology & Behavior, people consumed the fewest calories on days when they ate soup rather than the same ingredients in solid form. Soup has a high water content, which can help you feel full. Broth-based soups packed with veggies give you the biggest bang for your caloric buck.

The Best Dinner Foods for Weight Loss

Around 3 p.m. every day, you may be hit with the question: What's for dinner? Amid the dinnertime rush, it's easy to reach for ready-made meals that skimp on nutrition or leave you feeling unsatisfied. Luckily, a few tweaks to your routine can help you build a dinner that's tasty, satisfying and ultimately helps you lose weight. Aim to eat a balanced meal with at least serving or two of veggies, some protein, whole grains and a little healthy fat.
