Eat as much as you want and lose weight? Unfortunately, it’s not that easy. But there are some very low calorie foods and others that can help you lose weight.

1/10Admittedly, it is bitter and therefore not the most popular citrus fruit. But: As a California study showed, after eating half a grapefruit, you consume fewer calories and feel full faster. It is therefore an ideal supplement to the diet if you want to lose weight. © LuboIvanko/Imago
Different types of nuts in individual bowls.
2 / 10Yes, nuts are high in fat. But they also contain fiber and protein. They are ideal as a small snack between meals. Also because they actively support the metabolism – and thus weight loss – in small amounts. © Achim Sass/Imago
Chips with cottage cheese and berries.
3/10Cottage cheese (see photo) and low-fat cottage cheese are also among the foods that should not be forgotten when losing weight. Whether on bread or crisps, in muesli with fruit or hearty with salt and herbs with potatoes – both dairy products have a high protein content and only a few calories. They keep you full for a long time and are rich in calcium. © Zerbor/Imago

4/10Cruciferous vegetables, which include broccoli and cauliflower (see photo) as well as Brussels sprouts, are very high in fiber and nutrients. They also contain a relatively large number of proteins. The vegetable promotes weight loss due to its low energy density in combination with protein. Tip: It is better not to prepare it with a roux-based sauce or a lot of butter. © Westend61/Imago

5/10Whether or not potatoes are part of the diet is also a controversial issue. But the benefits are clear: potatoes are high in potassium (important for healthy blood pressure) and other nutrients like iron and magnesium. They are not necessarily low in carbohydrates. However, allowing cooked potatoes to cool slightly can develop resistant starches, which in turn can be beneficial for weight loss. This also applies to sweet potatoes, turnips or other root vegetables. © Edwin Remsberg/Imago
Various beans and legumes like chickpeas, black beans and lentils in yellow, red and black.

A bottle of unfiltered apple cider vinegar.
7/10If you add a pinch of apple cider vinegar to a high-carb dish, you often feel full faster and automatically eat less. Fruity vinegar is used in stews, for example, or eaten as a vinaigrette with salads. You can even drink it pure in small portions or diluted with water. © Madeleine Steinbach/Imago
Rocket salad
8/10Green leafy vegetables like arugula (see photo), spinach, iceberg lettuce or kale taste very different. What they have in common, however, are low calories and carbs and lots of fiber. They have a very positive effect on digestion. They also contain many vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Here you can eat properly without increasing the number of calories. At least if you do without the overly hearty way of preparing kale. © Virginija Vaidakavic/Imago
Coconut oil in a glass jar, on a wooden spoon and a coconut next to it.
9/10Thanks to its many medium-chain fatty acids, coconut oil can boost calorie burning and make you feel full faster. It suppresses the appetite, but it is high in calories. Here it is important to replace some oils with coconut oil when cooking. Do not add more afterwards. © HandmadePictures/Imago

10/10It used to be said that too many eggs were bad for your health, specifically for cholesterol levels. However, researchers have long refuted this. They’re high in protein, the yolk is especially nutritious, and eggs keep you full for a long time – without having a lot of calories. By the way: If the shell is intact, a boiled egg will keep for a good fortnight outside the refrigerator. So you can prepare them perfectly. © Cavan Images/Imago

If you want to reduce your weight, you usually do without many tasty things. But for some it is not necessary. For example, you can eat lots of leafy greens or cruciferous vegetables, and eggs, curd, and cottage cheese can fill you up for a long time. You only have to pay attention to nuts and coconut oil: here, the good side is in the quantity.
