Nectarines: Along with many other fruits and vegetables, nectarines are naturally high in dietary fiber. This is a great fruit to add to any weight loss diet as its fiber count adds bulk to your diet and helps you to feel full on less food. Consuming an appropriate amount of fiber will also aid in digestion and help to prevent constipation.

Red Onion: These onions contains a type of flavonoid called quercetin. Quercetin is an antioxidant compound that may help to protect against cancer, heart disease, and allergies.
