Vegetables are top of this list because vegetables are very low in carbs and high in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. During fat loss, I'll suggest you add vegetables to your diet.

Eat veggies salad 10 to 15 minutes before your meals it helps to fill your stomach and prevent eating too much food. 

Vegetables not only good for fat loss is also good for food digestion, reduce bad cholesterol, reduce type 2 diabetes, reduces risk of heart disease, etc.

Nuts are very healthy for everyone not only for the gym lovers nuts is a good source of polyunsaturated fat and monounsaturated fat and vitamins and minerals. Walnuts are a good source of omega-3 fatty acid found in fish omegas very important for brain function, skin, anti Inflammatory, etc. 

But nuts are a higher number of calories one ounce (28g) of almonds contains 164 calories and 3g of carbs and 3.5g of fiber this is good for fat loss. 

So I would suggest you eat 10g to 20g any nuts with a balanced macro diet. If you eating low carbs and low-calorie diet you lose weight easily.

Add any nuts in your snack meal around half or one ounce it depends on your calories.

3. Fruits

Fruits are also low in calories but not all fruits are low in carbs and calories. Some foods are high in carbs like bananas, fig, etc.

These all fruits are low in carbs and high in natural sugar. These fruits provide natural sugar not process sugar so you can add 2 servings of any 2 fruits like snack meal or also you can add in the oatmeal.

4. Oats 

Yes, oats also add in this list. We are talking about simple plain oats, not masala oats, masala oats are very high in salt, we don't need to much salt in our diet so avoid masala oats and buy rolled oats.

The majority of the gym lovers rat oatmeal meal first in the morning breakfast for gains but you can also use it for a fat loss diet. 

For gaining, you need more carbs and for fat loss, you need to eat low carbs so we are not eating one or two cups of oats. We just eating 1/4 cup oats means 20g.

20g oats provide 75calories 13g of carb wich include 2g fiber so net carbs are 11g, fat: 1.5g and Protein 2.5g so 11g carbs are good for fat loss in one meal 

You can add whey protein isolate, half banana or any fruit, and 10 to 15g of any nut. 


5. Eggs 


A most popular food in the world all nonvegetarian gym lover eat eggs because of high protein. The egg is high in protein some amount of healthy fats and other vitamins and minerals. 

One large egg provides 0.6g carbs, 6g protein, and 5g fat. 0.6g protein means less than 1g this is very very low or nothing. This food is best for all gymmers or normal people. And if you want lean protein then eat egg whites, egg whites have only protein no carb and no fat only protein.

Eat egg according to your goal. 


6. Fish 

Fish is also no-carb food high protein and healthy fats. Fish is high in Omega-3 and vitamin D, you vitamin D is best for bones but it also good for testosterone production in the male. Testosterone is the number one male hormone we also called androgen.
