Weight Loss Diet for Picky Eaters: 5 Tips That Actually Work

Trying to lose weight as a picky eater can be frustrating. It’s like bowling with a ball of rubber bands: You just don’t have the nutritional heft you need to knock inches off your waistline.

 

Vegetables, fruits, and seafood are all heavyweights in terms of vitamins and minerals, but according to University of Pennsylvania researchers, they’re also the three foods picky eaters are most likely to avoid.1 And ultimately, that leads to less-healthy diets overall, according to surveys from the same team.2

 

Truth is, adventurous diets can be good for you. Rejecting foods based on color and texture can rob you of the micro and macronutrients you need for peak metabolism. But by eating a wide variety of nutritious foods in smart portions, you can improve your body’s ability to quell aches and pains from inflammation, boost your energy levels, and even reduce pesky fat around your belly.

 

If you’re a picky eater, you have a hurdle to overcome. But you can do it: With methodical dietary upgrades, you can still build a weight loss meal plan that works. Here’s our guide to healthy eating for picky eaters.
