Weight Loss Benefits of Eating Vegetables

Vegetables are, by far, some of the healthiest foods on the planet. In fact, I don't think I'm out of line by saying that it's the HEALTHIEST of all the food groups. With whole grains you can consume too many carbs, with protein you risk getting a lot of unnecessary fat, and with fat you run the risk of eating too many calories. But with veggies, it's nearly impossible to overdo it, and you can ALWAYS stand to eat more veggies.

Eating vegetables can have many health benefits. Not only are they incredibly natural, but they contain dozens of different vitamins, minerals, plus thousands of other plant chemicals known to provide health benefits. Best of all, eating vegetables can also help control weight.

Why You Need Veggies

The presence of many vitamins and other chemicals in vegetables supply the body with nutrients necessary to boost energy production within the muscle cells. This give us a natural feeling of vitality and the energy to become more active helping to burn more energy each day.

How Much Per Day?

While fruits are important for your health, veggies are the "hero" foods you want to eat more of. If you can eat at least 4 or 5 servings of veggies per day, good for you! If you can increase that to 6 or 7, even better! The more veggies you eat, the healthier you will be!

Vegetable tip:
Vegetables can offer better heath benefits when they are cooked and mashed. A study has shown that the body can absorb more of an important substance from cooked vegetables than from raw ones.
