Vegetables

I have found vegetables to be a good friend since deciding to lose weight. Whenever I feel empty I have more vegetables on my plate to bulk my belly up without consuming many calories.

Vegetables have other great benefits also, they are rich in fibre, vitamins and minerals and make the bowels work. Something that men need to consider because men are more susceptible to bowel cancer.

You rarely see an overweight vegetarian, so right there we should pay more attention to putting more vegetables into our diet. Every serve of vegetables is only around 20 calories on average. So you can see how, let's say, a serve of carrots, cabbage, broccoli and peas would be nice and filling, yet be only around one hundred calories. Pretty good figures really.

Add the fact there is almost not fat, no cholesterol, yet high in essential vitamins, we have something we should consider eating much more.

Want to lose weight? Put more veggies on your plate and less meat. They taste delicious and are very good for you too.
