The #1 Best Lunch for Weight Loss

Weight loss requires having the correct foods, drinks, and recipes in your kitchen. Having the healthiest options makes all the difference when meal prepping for the week, needing an after-dinner snack, or running out the door for breakfast.  

Healthy eating is important, but meal time is too. Research shows that meal timings can synchronize tissues and organs involved in food absorption, digestion, and metabolism.  

Unusual eating times can disrupt your circadian rhythm. Lunch after 3 p.m. may result in less weight reduction, according to a research. Obviously, have lunch before 3 p.m.  

This salad is nutritious and filling. Calorie-controlled too. "A salad with mixed greens, three ounces of salmon, one tablespoon of feta cheese, one tablespoon of chopped walnuts, 1/4 cup of berries, 1/4 cup of quinoa, 1/4 medium avocado, and balsamic drizzle is the ultimate lunch,  

Salads contain vegetables and other nutrients, making it a great weight loss food. Increased vegetable intake reduces the risk of weight gain or obesity, according to research.  

If you add extra toppings, salads can quickly become very calorie-dense. When dining out, watch how much dressing is used. Again, "Being mindful of portion sizes is key to weight loss, even when you are eating 'healthy,' nutrient-rich foods."
