We’ve come a long way since the last time diet meant NOT eating. A number of healthy diets are available now, and people swear by so many of them, but which ones actually work? According to MSN Lifestyle, food pairing is the key to a healthy weight loss. Certain foods, despite their individual health benefits, when combined can result in low energy, bloating, and even weight gain. In contrast, smart pairings can have a reverse effect, boosting energy and super-charging metabolism.

2. Whole grain pasta and asparagus.
