Weight loss doesn't come easy, is what most of us get to hear. Even shedding a few extra pounds has always been thought of as a tough target especially when it involves cutting down on intake of daily calories and rigorous exercising for burning those gained.

Weight loss experts and nutritionists have even recommended superfoods that would help one embark on a journey of weight loss.

Many studies have, however, proved that just consuming simple foods and eating them at the right time makes all the difference.

Even the natural foods that you may find in your kitchen garden may be good enough.

Here is a list of 33 foods across various natural food types that may aid you in your weight loss mission.

Grains: Quinoa, brown rice, rolled oats, tortillas, almond flour, coconut flour

Nuts: Pistachios, walnuts

Lean protein: Chicken, turkey, fish, black beans, egg whites

Veggies: Spaghetti squash, avocado, cauliflower, spinach, kale, eggplant

Fruits: Pineapple, watermelon, orange, lemon, berries, tomato

Healthy oils: Olive, sesame, coconut

Dairy: Non-fat yogurt, cottage cheese

Extras: Unsweetened applesauce, garlic, chia seeds, unsweetened almond milk

In addition to these natural foods, nutritionists also emphasise upon drinking plenty of water.

The idea is to have at least two servings of fruits and three servings of vegetables each day. However, never deprive yourself of an occasional treat.
