(HealthDay News) -- Low-calorie foods that help you feel full can promote weight loss and prevent too much snacking.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests eating:

  • More fruits and vegetables, without adding any sources of additional fat. Apples, watermelon, berries, carrots, spinach, tomato and broccoli are good choices.
  • Fat-free and low-fat dairy products, such as milk, cottage cheese or yogurt.
  • Soups with a broth base, such as vegetable soup, tomato soup (no cream), beef broth or chicken broth.
  • Popcorn, whole-wheat bread or pasta, brown rice and other whole grains.
  • Lean ground beef, fish such as salmon or skinless chicken.
  • Green peas, black-eyed peas, beans cooked without any fat, and other legumes.
