When it comes to weight loss no one wants to spend the day hungry after following a meal plan that was low on calories but also low on food in general.
If you’re finding your stomach grumbling even though you only ate an hour ago, it might be time to switch up your meals and find more filling options that are still low in calories.
Read on to find out which low calorie foods are the perfect way to bulk up your meals and snacks without blowing your calories for the day.
If you’re a fan of berries, then you’re in luck. Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and pretty much whatever berry you like are all low calorie at around 85 calories per cup.
Besides being delicious, berries are also full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatories, which can reduce your risk of heart disease, cancer and generally boost your immunity.
You can eat berries as a snack, add them to your morning oats or even blend them into your smoothie to keep you full without over-indulging.
Who doesn’t love a big bowl of popcorn? Well you don’t have to hold back when indulging in this light air-popped treat.
Don’t get us wrong, we’re not talking about the popcorn you buy at the movies. The butter-strewn offering from the cinemas is high in salt, fat and calories, but when it comes to a low-calorie food, air-popped popcorn is a definite weight loss friendly option.
Plain popcorn is only 35 calories per cup so it’s a lot of volume for a small number of calories which can fill you up and satisfy any snack craving.
For added taste season your popcorn. If you’re feeling sweet, try adding a small amount of cinnamon sugar or just stick with plain sea salt for savory. You can get creative!
If you crave something sweet, then watermelon is a great snack option that’s low calories but still hits the spot.
Due to its high-water content, one cup of watermelon is only 46 calories, so you can easily snack on this fruit throughout the day without going over your calorie goal.
Top tip, meal prep your watermelon so it’s easily accessible in your fridge whenever cravings strike.
If you love your noodles but don’t like the carbs and calories that come along with them then shirataki noodles are just what you’ve been looking for.

Just like rice noodles, shirataki noodles soak up the flavours within your meal, so you don’t have to compromise the flavours of your favourite stir-fry for this low-calorie option.
If you’re not already using zucchini in your meals, then you’re missing out. This vegetable is the ultimate high-volume food, containing only 19 calories per cup so you can fill up for less.
Throw this versatile veggie into your shirataki noodle stir-fry, grate it into a carrot and zucchini slice or even spiralise it for a low-calorie pasta replacement. The options are endless!
