Healthiest Vegetables for Weight Loss, According to Dietitians


Roasting the cauliflower brings out so much flavor, so it's a great way to incorporate more vegetables and fiber, especially if you're not a veggie lover.

Spaghetti Squash

All winter squashes are low-calorie foods effective for weight loss. But spaghetti squash is my personal favorite.


Half of an avocado has a whopping 5 g of fiber, which is half the amount to aim for at each meal. 


Consuming enough fiber is an important part of a diet for weight loss, as it helps you to stay full and provides little in the way of calories.


Zucchini is also delicious when it is roasted and cooks quickly on the stove, making it easy to add to stovetop dishes like pasta and stir-fries.

Romaine Lettuce

If you're looking for one of the lowest-calorie vegetables, romaine lettuce has only 8 calories per cup.

Green Peas

Peas are starchy vegetables (like potatoes and corn), meaning they have more carbohydrates than non-starchy vegetables. 


One cup of kale has only 7 calories, which means you can fill your entire plate with 4 to 5 cups of kale for under 50 calories.


Spinach makes a perfect staple in your refrigerator because there are so many ways to sneak it into your diet.


While carrots have a little more sugar than other vegetables, they also have more fiber.

Bell Peppers

Bell peppers are low in calories and high in nutrients. In fact, one bell pepper contains more vitamin C than an orange! 


Broccoli is a cruciferous vegetable with cancer-fighting compounds, specifically sulforaphane and indole-3-carbinol.
