When we think of foods that are good for dieting it’s pretty easy to name a range of foods we know will be healthy to eat, right?

We all know that conservative portions of vegetables, fruits, whole grains and legumes, some nuts and seeds, and a little egg, meat and dairy, will help us reach our weight-loss goals.

But did you ever think that how you combine your foods could make a difference to your fat-loss results? Well, it can. Eating certain foods in combination with each other can effectively strengthen the action of their component nutrients, making them ‘work’ better.

Here are some great combos to try:

Salmon and sweet potatoes

Salmon is a wonderful source of omega-3 fats, which are an essential ingredient for all aspects of health, including normal brain function and weight loss. The salmon is also high in protein – good for keeping you feeling fuller for longer.
