Losing weight can be an infinite struggle but this is not so much the point from which to start our change as what we eat.
We should approach vegetables with open arms , it is proven, in fact, by several researches that this helps to lose weight.
You don't need to be vegetarian or vegan to get close to nature and plants, you just need to eat foods that are found a few kilometers from one's home.
Here are the ones….
You certainly don't have to be vegetarian extremists to eat more vegetables and feel better.
Besides, we must always think what to eat and how to eat them.
The biscuits filled with cream are also vegetable but they are bad and are fatty!
What we must include in our diet is a menu based on vegetables , fruit, whole grains, legumes (beans, peas and lentils), dried fruit and seeds, all without oil, sugar, or other refined ingredients.
An intelligent mix of these foods is enough to start losing weight , mixing these which are really excellent vegetables for weight loss and for nutrients with healthy fats such as those of coconut oil or avocado, for example.
Eating vegetables will lower, exponentially, the possibility of contracting heart disease or type 2 diabetes, as well as obesity or high blood pressure, related completely or almost to our eating habits.
How and what to eat
Beyond the clear benefits that a vegetarian-based diet can give to our lifestyle and quality of life, we must not forget to eat something else.
=Animal proteins, if we are not vegans or vegetarians, can be part of the diet, as well as carbohydrates.
Carbohydrates are not absolute evil, on the contrary.
The body needs carbohydrates toburn calories and not implode in itself.
Of course, if the carbohydrate is accompanied by vegetables everything makes much more sense, because vegetables arerich in fibres which help our intestines and leave us fuller for longer.
Le fibre, oltretutto, sono davvero fondamentali per purify and detoxify.
Our body uses those calories, those of the fibers, to cleanse the our organism, does not even begin the process of translating that calories in fat.
That's why vegetables are good for you.
