A simple Google search these days for ‘weight loss’ will bring up an absolute tidal wave of products and services designed to help you slim down.
As you probably already know – not all of these products are what they are cracked up to be!
The truth of the matter is that many of these programs aren’t sustainable.
What do I mean by this?
Well, many of these so called miracle weight loss guides are designed to help you rapidly lose weight…but that weight will soon return after the process is finished.
We actually promote a handful of excellent health and weight loss products in our Product Review section of the site….but you will notice that there are not many choices there.
This is down to trust – unfortunately we only trust what you see here on this site…which is a tiny percentage of the options available!
At the end of the day more traditional efforts like adding fruits and veggies to your diet can bring about much better results than overnight fads…these results will also last longer as well.
So lets take a look at the most effective ways you can lose weight by eating more vegetables…

What Type of Diet?
There are a lot of fruit and vegetable diets floating around out there but I really hate to call these sorts of things ‘diets’ – personally I see them more of a lifestyle change!
Anyway, some people opt to take a majority of their diet fruits and veggies with just small amounts of chicken and fish.
Others decide upon leaving out the meat altogether by mixing their fruit and veg with eggs, yogurt, milk and cheese.
Then we have individuals who opt for the strictest route of all – the vegan diet.
All of these types of diets can help you lose weight, but the vegan diet would probably bring on the quickest results.
The Nutritional Side of Things…
A fruit and/or a vegetable diet will always offer a pretty awesome supply of nutrition, besides assisting in your weight loss efforts:
You will find very high levels of Vitamin E in:
You will also find impressive levels of the common cold-fighting vitamin C in:
High levels of iron in:
A good supply of folic acid in:
And plenty of Zinc in:
- Lima beans
That’s quite a collection, isn’t it?
On top of that these types of foods are instrumental in promoting a healthy digestive system – this means that the build up of toxins and waste inside us can be controlled properly.
A high percentage of these ‘crash course’ diets allow you to put various options into your body that are not altogether beneficial to your overall health.
At least with veggies you know you are losing weight by consuming the types of food your body will eventually thank you for!

Have I Mentioned Fiber Yet?
As I touched on above – fruits and vegetables are great for your digestive system…and this is mainly down to fiber (green leafy vegetables are the best source of this!).
The cool thing about fiber is that it gives you that full feeling, which means you do not have to consume as much food to feel satisfied in the hunger department.
This obviously impacts your caloric intake and lays the foundations for a more successful diet.
Both fruits and vegetables contain high levels of water which again is very good for your digestive system (and body as a whole!).
Much like fiber, water is very good at providing that full feeling. This in turn means you will take in a lower amount of calories.
If you manage to keep your calorie count down more of your exercises go towards burning off stored fat, rather than the calories from what you’ve just consumed.
The Perfect Snack
Traditional snacks are the downfall of 99% of diets and health plans out there – I guess they always will be!
I’ve noticed that even the majority of health snack options available are still full of cholesterol, fat, salt or sugar…they just hide it well on the packaging!
Fruit or vegetables make a handy and healthy snack option that is also friendly to your wallet!
I also find that these over-produced snack options are pretty shitty at keeping your hunger satisfied.
On the flip side of the coin – more natural produce, like fruit and veggies, do give you that satisfying feeling whilst reducing your overall caloric intake.
