What to Eat for Dinner to Lose Weight ... When you’re trying to slim down, every meal—and calorie—counts. But that doesn’t mean that dinner has to be a skimpy salad. You can build a filling, diet-friendly dinner (that includes dessert) around four slimming ingredients: greens, protein, grains, and dessert.
So you've slipped up and snacked on a handful (or six) of salty pretzels. The good news is that avocados and other potassium-rich foods combat puffiness by balancing excess sodium and reducing water retention. "Look for foods that are high in potassium or that have a balance of potassium and sodium, like celery," says Snyder. If you're not in the mood for guacamole, other possibilities include cantaloupe, oranges, carrots, bananas, and—if you're feeling trendy—coconut water.
