Salads in essence start with a base of lettuce, but they shouldn’t consist of only low calorie vegetables otherwise they aren’t going to fill you up or power you up. Here are some ways to step up your salad toppings that will make your salads a lot more satiating and can actually help you burn more fat.

Add Nuts

Walnuts are full of heart healthy fat that make you fuller longer, as well as fiber. The good kinds of polyunsaturated fats in walnuts can actually help the body go into fat burning mode as well.

A 2015 study published in the Journal of the American Heart Association found that when people ate 42 grams of almonds each day instead of something else in their diet they saw noticeable weight loss results.

Add Citrus

Adding blood orange or grapefruit to a salad will amp up the vitamin C content, which helps to reduce cortisol in the body. The stress hormone cortisol is responsible for some of the storage of belly fat, so natural you don’t want an excess of that.

Add Blueberries

One study done on rats found that a diet high in blueberries decreased their belly fat and cholesterol levels, as well as improving their insulin levels.

If You Do Cheese Make it Parmesan

Cheese can be a high fat food and for many people even increases cravings, but it’s not all bad. One awesome cheese to go with for salads is parmesan cheese, since it is high in protein and low in calories. Plus thanks to the way it’s shaved you can cover a lot of ground with not very much, saving you even more calories. And you’ll never miss out on the flavor aspect.

Add Kale

You can even make your own warm salad topping by cooking up some kale and putting it on regular lettuce. Kale is so popular because it is super healthy. It has ten grams of fiber in each serving and it is a good source of vitamin K which can help to regulate the blood sugar.

Quinoa

Yes you can add grains to your salad. In fact it can be a really good way to make sure that it’s filling enough that you feel like you actually just ate a meal. Quinoa in particular is a good option for a couple reason, one being that the size of its grains just work well on a salad dish. For another thing, and probably more importantly, quinoa is a good source of protein, fiber, and is low on the glycemic index which means it is not going to spike your blood sugar but rather keep things sustained at a good rate.

Add Fish

Fish is a good choice as a protein source, because when it is high in omega-3 fatty acids like salmon is it can have some additional fat boost elements. Some studies suggest that omega-3 fatty acids can reduce the amount of fat that is stored in the body.
