Nonfat Greek Yogurt

Nonfat Greek Yogurt Fit people love nonfat Greek yogurt! Nonfat Greek yogurt is quite possibly one of the most lean, high protein sources of all other foods when it comes to fat content, protein content and nutrient composition. It is also one of the easiest animal protein-rich foods to digest. Greek yogurt works in many ways to keep you fit. For starters, the healthy bacteria fight disease and help fight bad bacteria in the body, which can cause sugar cravings and can also make you sick. The healthy bacteria also help with digestion, bloating and have been proven to fight belly flab and have actually been proven to increase your metabolic rate. Greek yogurt’s calcium also reduces the stress hormone cortisol in the body, and the potassium in Greek yogurt fights bloating and aids in healthy blood pressure. Greek yogurt is also a great source of Vitamin B12, magnesium, and zinc. Each of these nutrients aid in nervous system function, energy levels, and help your immune system stay strong.

Leafy Greens

Leafy Greens Spinach, kale, romaine, chard, collards, beet greens and all other greens are a must-have for achieving and maintaining a fit body. Full of fiber, low in calories, high in Vitamins A, E, B and C, leafy greens are also a fantastic source of iron to keep you energized. All of these nutrients fight fat, ward off disease, give you energy and nourish your cells. They keep you pretty too, which is an added bonus to being fit!

Unsweetened Almond Milk

Unsweetened Almond Milk Technically almond milk isn’t a food, but I included it on this list because it is the perfect dairy-free alternative to milk, and is super-low in calories while being extremely high in calcium, with double the amount of regular dairy milk. Unsweetened almond milk is the lowest calorie milk on the market, and rich in nutrients and potassium. It makes the perfect liquid for smoothies, as a coffee creamer, is tasty in cooked dishes, and makes a great low-calorie ingredient in any recipe you can think of. It also resembles milk’s consistency more than any other milk.

Clean Protein Powder

Clean Protein Powder I hate to recommend protein powders over food, but most fit people actually do include a clean protein powder into their routine, and here’s why. Clean protein powders, which are free of artificial sweeteners, added sugar, sodium, excess fat, and chemicals, are wonderful ways to give your body the recovery it needs after a workout, or to replace protein needs that you’re not eating. I especially love using protein powders after my workouts in the morning and love hemp protein, a raw, grain-free, vegan protein blend by Sunwarrior called Warrior Blend, along with ones from Vega and Garden of Life. These powders all aid in muscle repair and lean muscle development, along with having added amino acids and nutrients to nourish my body and ward off junk food cravings.

Veggies

Veggies Anyone who is truly fit will tell you how much they love veggies. Veggies fill you up, not out, and make your meals more satisfying. Choose any types of veggies, but be sure to choose plenty of them! They are rich in antioxidants that fight disease and obesity, and they also keep you gorgeous!

6

Eggs

Eggs Eggs are a wonderful source of amino acids, iron, Vitamin E, Vitamin A, B vitamins and have an overall good dose of protein. Fit people love eggs and egg whites for their metabolic advantage, satiety rating and in supplying healthy doses of protein to fuel workouts. Eggs also ward off sugar cravings and hunger, leading to healthier blood sugar levels.

7

Coconut

Coconut Coconut oil, unsweetened coconut, and coconut butter are also great foods for fitness enthusiasts. Why so? For starters, coconut is overall a highly energizing food that can sustain workouts, and ward off sugar cravings. The fats in coconut are also excellent for your liver and are used immediately by the body instead of being stored as fat. It also keeps your brain happy and wards off depression.

Smart Carbs

Smart Carbs You don’t have to quit eating carbs to be healthy or fit. In fact, you shouldn’t. Just choose smart carbs, such as fruit and root veggies like butternut squash, sweet potatoes, acorn squash and gluten-free grains like quinoa, gluten-free oats and brown rice. Eat some healthy carbs with at least one meal a day. These foods are great sources of nutrients and can assist in keeping you fit for life.

Now, I want to hear what foods you eat to stay fit! This list is in no way inclusive, so share your favorite fit foods with me!
