Natural Weight Loss

Lesson #1

Eat your Greens

Yes it’s true, vegetables are good for you! Especially the green kind. Fresh spinach, kale, lettuce, herbs, cucumber, broccoli… This food group is absolutely abundant in nourishment. Including more fresh vegetables into your daily diet is one of the simplest choices you can make to lose weight naturally and improve your overall health.

It might sound really simple but here is the secret… Calorie Density. Veggies are lowest on that scale, having only 60-200 calories per pound! Raw vegetables are full of water and fiber, which have essentially no calories but offer a lot of bulk. This means they fill you up quickly while providing only a few calories. One of the beautiful benefits of eating plan-based is that this is an abundant lifestyle, not a restrictive one. And being satiated and full while still dropping unhealthy pounds becomes very easy if you just shift the amount of calories you consume but don’t take away the amount of food itself.

Another benefit of eating variety of fresh vegetables each day is the nutrients you receive. They contain incredible amount of micronutrients, especially minerals, which nourish your body on a deep cellular level and naturally fight off cravings for unhealthy food. On top of that they are filled with antioxidants and other important phytonutrients, all responsible for vibrant health and vitality! All of these nutrients can prevent most chronic diseases, heal your body‘s ailments, and keep you looking young and fit.

How to include more greens into your diet:

Our personal favorite way to eat them is by making epic salads for lunch and dinner. However, you can simply up the amount of vegetables you consume by adding them into the meals you‘re already eating – sandwiches, soups, stews, smoothies…

The emphasis should be on green leafy vegetables, however make sure to also include peppers, carrots, broccoli, or zucchini – as they are all incredibly beneficial. Just choose the ones you like the most and aim to fill at least half of your plate with them during lunch and dinner!

Incorporate fresh vegetables into your meals at least 3x daily. For example, start your day with fresh green juice or smoothie made with fresh or frozen fruit and add a big handful of spinach or kale (you won’t even know it’s there, we promise). For lunch have a big salad consisting of raw spinach or romaine lettuce, tomatoes, herbs, nuts or seeds and a generous amount of healthy homemade dressing. Dinner can be a veggie loaded stir fry with kale, peppers, bean sprouts, etc. 

Be creative and let the supporting resources guide you and inspire you to adopt this healthy weight loss promoting habit.
