How to Use Vegetables for Faster Weight Loss?

In 2021, Circulation, the journal of the American Heart Association, published research naming two fruits and three vegetables as the optimal amount of produce to eat every day for a longer life. A 13 percent lower risk of death from any cause is a pretty good reason to get your five-a-day. And now is the best time of year to get into the habit of hitting your daily quota because farm stands are brimming with fresh-picked produce at reasonable prices.

Aside from longevity, if weight loss is your primary goal, loading up on vegetables is a no-brainer strategy. “Foods that are naturally rich in water and fibre, such as non-starchy vegetables, tend to give you a lot of stomach satisfaction and blood sugar control for a very low calorie cost,” says Lon Ben-Asher, MS, RD, a nutritionist at the Pritikin Longevity Center + Spa.

In other words, you can eat as much of them as you want or until you’re satisfied. For most of us, the challenge is to make eating more vegetables a habit, as simple and automatic as grabbing a handful of potato chips from a bowl. Are you up for a challenge?
