When we asked registered dietitian Sheri Kasper, RDN, LDN, of Fresh Communications for one thing people can do right now to start losing weight, she told POPSUGAR, “Eat more veggies.” Since veggies are low in calories and many are low in carbs, you can eat huge portions, feel more satisfied, and still lose weight.
Veggies also take a long time to eat, which prevents you from scarfing down your meal too fast. This gives your brain a chance to get the memo that you’re full and helps you recognize your satiety cues. Another plus? Veggies are full of fiber and water, which also contribute to that “I’m full” feeling.
Eating one big salad for one meal a day is a great way to get your fill of vegetables. If losing weight is your goal, there’s a right and a wrong way to make a salad, so follow these 10 expert-recommended tips.
