Dieting can sometimes feel pretty miserable. The list of foods you’re ‘allowed’ to eat is not exactly extensive!

And the food industry is not helping us by continually finding ways to make foods cheaper and tastier, but less healthy because of it.

So you’ll be pleased to know that if you follow a few simple rules, there are some ‘naughty’ foods that you CAN enjoy and still make progress on your weight-loss plan.

1.     Peanut butter

Peanut butter is a seriously satisfying food to eat. It has a wonderful taste, an interesting texture, and makes a killer spread on a sandwich or on pieces of apple.

Peanut butter is also full of unsaturated fats (the good kind), and has lots of potassium too, so it’s legitimately healthy to eat. Go for unsweetened, unsalted peanut butter, and don’t overdo the quantity and your diet will be fine!
