If you’re on a low-carb diet, you probably know that fruits are off the table for you, especially if you’re trying to lose weight. Right? Wrong. Apart from giving you a good dose of sugar, fruits also offer several important nutrients, and you absolutely need to have them on a daily basis. Keep the servings small, but make sure you’re still having 2-3 different types every day.

Several studies have found that a diet rich in lentils like chickpeas, beans, and peas can actually help keep your weight in check. Most lentils are full of fiber and tend to digest slowly, which makes them the perfect choice to have for a snack or a meal, especially if you’re looking to keep your weight in check.
