Actually they do not REDUCE weight but they help to maintain our weight and do not increase the weight. Eat lots of salads of fresh vegetables.

Fresh vegetables should always be a staple in your diet if you want to lose weight. In particular, arugula, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, spinach, mushrooms, tomatoes, bell peppers and onions are considered "super foods" that fight fat, according to FitnessMagazine.com. Though all of these foods can help with your fat-fighting battle, broccoli is especially important to eat. It metabolizes excess estrogen, which can lead to weight gain in both women and men. Broccoli, as well as cabbage and cauliflower, contains the compound indole-3-carbinol, which helps regulate the estrogen-to-testosterone ratio and, consequently, your weight.

There are no food items which reduce weight....
yes there are medicines definitely in Homeopathy which helps reduce...
but the physical effort and a proper leafy carbo diet is a must....
specially aerobics...which alongwith regulated portions of salad and carbo...
will definitely give you the advantage against weight gain...and actually help lose weight

Food does not reduce weight, but certain food items can help you not gain much weight and keep your body fit. A healthy regular diet can also help you. certain external supplements such as ObesiGo. to find out more, visit this site http://www.hexagonnutrition.com/products/Hexagon%20Products/Obesi Go-BLCD.php

Eliminate refined processed carbohydrates. Replace those foods with 'fat burning' foods. Eat a meal about every three waking hours (5 or 6 meals per day). You will not be eating more food; you will simply be spreading it throughout the day. Each of those five or six small feedings should contain at least 15 grams of an unprocessed fat burning food for a female or at least 20 grams an unprocessed fat burning food per feeding for a male. This will speed up your metabolism and help to curb any food cravings.
