To lose weight, you don't need to deprive yourself of everything. Instead, you should make your diet help avoid excess weight, according to the Best Life Online website.

Dietician Kimberly Gomer has named the best summer products for weight loss.

Summer salads

Eating a variety of fresh vegetables is a great way to lose weight during the summer.

By consuming whole foods rich in vitamins and minerals, you provide your cells with the necessary elements to boost metabolism.

Dark leafy greens, tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, zucchini, carrots, avocados, fresh fruits, chilled legumes, nuts, and seeds can all be excellent additions to salads. Combine these with protein and whole grains to make your meals complete.


Summer smoothies can fill your body with nutrients and ensure it gets all the essential vitamins, minerals, fiber, protein, and healthy fats.

Add antioxidant-rich berries, leafy greens like spinach, nut butter, or seeds.


If you don't have time to make a smoothie, just it fresh berries - they can give you the same benefits.

Berries are also high in fiber, which promotes gut health and digestion. Specifically, the dietician recommends choosing blueberries, noting them as one of the most nutrient-dense foods.

Blueberries are rich in vitamin C and antioxidants, which help fight stress and reduce the likelihood of stress eating.

Strawberries and raspberries also have noticeable health benefits.

Bell peppers

Nearly all non-starchy vegetables are low in calories.

Bell peppers can be used in a variety of dishes and eaten raw, grilled, or sautéed.

They are low in calories and rich in vitamins, adding flavor and volume to dishes. Bell peppers help you feel full without consuming excess calories.


Watermelon can be especially beneficial due to its extremely high water content.

It's one of the best fruits for weight loss in the summer. It contains about 90% water, has low sugar content, and is rich in vitamins A and C and antioxidants.

Lean grilled meat

It's best to avoid processed meats high in saturated fats, sodium, or nitrates. Instead, grilling lean, minimally processed protein sources like chicken can be a healthier centerpiece for your meal.

Grilled fish or seafood

Replacing red meat with lighter proteins like fish or seafood can be beneficial for heart health and weight loss.

Seafood is rich in protein, which helps you stay full and supports muscle growth, crucial for boosting metabolism.

Grilled seafood is a great summer food for weight loss.

Additionally, fish is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids and B vitamins, which help maintain energy levels.
