Eat More Veggies and Plant-Based Meals
Studies show that vegetarians (and, even more so, vegans) routinely have lower bodyweight, Seattle-based registered dietitian, nutritionist, and Arivale coach Ginger Hultin, MS, CSO, told POPSUGAR. That's because plant-based foods like veggies are high in fiber, and research shows that women who followed a higher-fiber diet were at a reduced likelihood of having an increased waist circumference. Try eating a more plant-based diet, focusing on veggies, whole grains, and plant proteins such as beans, nuts, seeds, and soy products.
Registered dietitian Leslie Langevin, MS, CD, of Whole Health Nutrition said that eating veggies is one of the easiest ways to start losing body fat. She recommended including veggies in every single meal and snack — even breakfast and dessert!
