What foods should I keep in my fridge and freezer if I want to lose weight?

Dr. Andrea Pennington, MD
Integrative Medicine
Have a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables in your fridge. If you pick lots of bright colors, you are most likely to get a variety of nutrients. Bright colors, especially reds and greens, indicate high antioxidant content. Frozen fruits and vegetables, low-fat milk, yogurt, nut milks, reduced fat cheese, eggs (especially omega-3 enriched), egg whites and egg substitutes are great staples. Choose skinless chicken or turkey breasts, pork tenderloin and lean cuts of beef for healthy meat options.
