Savor the Power of Positivity for Weight-Loss Goals

(Family Features) - The beginning months of a new year, they're a time filled with hope and endless possibilities for the year ahead. So when it comes to weight-loss related goals, stay in the right state of mind by looking forward to full-flavored foods and shrinking waistlines. Treat your taste buds with these smart food choices:

Sports Snacks - For those who write them off as a nutritional nightmare, think again. A simple tweak can do wonders. Going with grilled salmon burgers in place of ground beef, for example, swaps unhealthy saturated fat for stuff of the heart-healthy, unsaturated variety. Avocados, another sports snacking stable, are full of cholesterol-taming monounsaturated fats. The rich, creamy texture of avocados makes resolutions to eat healthier easier to follow. An ounce of avocados (or about one-fifth of the fruit) has nearly 20 vitamins and minerals.

Bakery bites - Luscious cakes, muffins and cookies were once only the domain of bakeries. A new crop of grocery store products, however, offers the same delicious taste while keeping nutritionals in check. A good example is the new Weight Watchers Coffee Cake. It packs moist cake, crumbly streusel topping and a rich cinnamon filling into only 120 calories, and boasts five grams of fiber to boot. Opt for this better-for-you pre-packaged version and follow the same rule for traditional baked goods that can pack up to 700 calories: If you often enjoy a muffin with your coffee, look for the low-calorie varieties in your grocery store. They offer the same fix for less than 200 calories.

Sweet drinks - Plenty of drinking options exist to satisfy your sweet tooth. The key is to harness the power of water. Get in the habit of diluting sugar-laden juices and sports drinks with H20 and you can slash the amount of sugar you slurp up in half. Not only does it increase water consumption, it makes whatever you buy last twice as long.
