Low-Calorie, High-Fiber Summer Recipes to Help You Lose Weight

Macaroni salad, shrimp cocktail, fish tacos and more easy summer recipes that are low in calories and high in fiber.

If you’re trying to lose weight this summer, our fiber-rich, low-calorie recipes might help you shed pounds. New research suggests a way to prevent weight gain or even encourage weight loss—without dieting. The secret? Eat more fiber. If you’re consuming 2,000 calories per day, aim to increase your fiber by 16 grams. While it helps you feel full, “fiber has no calories,” says Larry Tucker, Ph.D., lead researcher and professor in the Department of Exercise Sciences at Brigham Young University. So if you fill up on high-fiber foods you crowd out less-healthy foods, explains Tucker. These healthy, high-fiber recipes, including Macaroni Salad and Basil, Shrimp & Zucchini Pasta, are filling, low-calorie recipes that are perfect for summer.
