Want to lose some weight?
Want to look and feel so great?
Fill up on veggies!
So low in calories, yet so high in nutritional density and fiber, veggies are your best ally not only with regard to shrinking your waistline, but more importantly in fueling your body with vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants and everything good, under the sun (literally). In many cases, veggies have that “negative calorie” effect because it takes calories to process so much fiber, causing the body to burn more calories than it takes in. While the negative calorie idea is highly disputed, and it may not actually be a negative, it’s often a “wash”. Beware the more starchy veggies, like white potatoes and corn, if you are trying to lose weight. With SO many different choices and so many different ways to mix em up and prepare them, everyone can find their favorites. Grilled, roasted, simply steamed or right out of the bag…or even better the ground…love (or learn to love) your veggies, because I promise they will love you back!
hey, i’m on a 1200 calorie diet at the monemt and my advice is that regardless of how big the portion size is as long as it is the amount of calories you are aiming to eat for dinner then its fine to eat. like yesterday i had a big bowl of soup that i bought from the supermarket that was 340 calories, it was a lot of soup but it was only 340 calories which is in my 400 calorie range. the reason they are large is because they are healthy foods such as vegetables, if you were to have a regular portion of this is may only add up to 170-ish calories because its little amounts of low calorie foods so to keep a balance they offer them in larger portion sizes. (i have a feeling that paragraph is confusing) so basically, as long as there is around 400 calories in your portion you are perfectly fine to eat it despite whether is is a large portion of a small portion.i hope your diet goes well! mines going really well, lost 7 pounds in my first week and a half!
