-Given its incredibly low calorie content, kale is among the most nutrient dense foods in existence. -Eating more kale is a great way to dramatically increase the total nutrient content of your diet.


-Flaxseed

-Rich in proteins. So, when you consume a teaspoon of flaxseed , along with dietary fiber, the protein content suppresses your appetite.

-This prevents you from overeating, thereby helping you in losing weight.

-Low in starch and sugar, hence they are not high on calories.
