Not Eating Enough Veggies
Vegetables are the food group you want to be filling up on the most. "They are high in volume and weight and fill up our stomachs, which helps us register the feeling of fullness," Ilana said. Stephanie and Willow agree and say that veggies are also high in fiber, so they'll satiate your hunger longer, helping you consume fewer daily calories.
Leslie adds that veggies aren't just for dinner! She said to include veggies in every single meal and snack. During breakfast, throw greens or beans in fruit smoothies or add spinach to overnight oats or zucchini to oatmeal. For lunch, make a week of mason jar salads to ensure you get a daily salad. And for dinner, make sure your plate is half filled with veggies like cauliflower rice or roasted sweet potato.
