Losing weight is no easy feat, especially if you're trying to lose weight in a certain place. For some of us, we'd love to get rid of our lower back fat. But, it's not exactly possible to target one area of your body when losing weight. Thankfully, you'll start seeing changes once you start exercising and eating healthy. Here are some doctor recommended foods that will help speed up your weight loss and get rid of that pesky back fat.

salmon back fat


Salmon is an excellent food for weight loss. It's filled with omega-3 fatty acids, which can help you feel fuller longer and resist overeating unhealthy foods. Consuming fewer calories will eventually lead to weight loss, and fat loss!

kale weight loss


Kale is low in calories, but high in protein, fiber and vital nutrients. Substituting kale for high-calorie foods will not only help you lose weight, but it will also help suppress your appetite. The dark leafy veggie is also loaded with isothiocyanates that amp up your body’s detoxifying properties to help with weight loss and fat loss. 

quinoa weight loss


Like salmon, quinoa is another great food for weight loss. It's high in protein and dietary fiber, which will help you feel fuller longer and avoid binging on unhealthy foods. It's also low in calories and will help you stay within your recommended daily calorie intake to lose fat. 

yogurt weight loss

Plain Greek Yogurt

If fat loss is your goal, you should try eating more yogurt. Plain Greek yogurt is low in calories and high in protein, which is excellent for weight and fat loss. Plus, it's loaded with probiotics that aid with digestion and improving gut health.
