How Vegetables Help You Lose Weight

The Food You Need More of to Lose Weight

There's a reason why we've been told since childhood to eat our veggies. The produce is packed with good stuff: vitamins and nutrients that can help ward off disease, give you energy, and help you live a longer, healthier life. And if you're trying to lose weight, there are a few more reasons you should be loading up your plate with vegetables. Many veggies are high in fiber, which will help fill you up so you end up consuming fewer calories during your meal than if you opted for less-healthy options for dinner. And since vegetables have fewer calories to begin with (especially when they are steamed or eaten raw), it's easier to stick to your calorie counts for the day without feeling like you're starving yourself. In fact, you can even substitute creative veggie sides for some of your favorite high-carb starches without feeling like something's missing on your plate.

Can't remember the last time you loaded your fridge with fresh produce? It's time to get shopping if you want to see results. Pin or print out this poster, then find out more reasons why you're not losing weight here.
