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!
