Choose produce that creates a near-zero calorie flow. That means choosing foods that are so low in calories that you’ll be burning them while you eat them: shredded cabbage, celery, spinach, romaine and all lettuces. Any vegetable that’s leafy and green is good for weight loss. Not buying enough vegetables is the number one mistake people make when shopping. Vegetables help keep us feeling full, and it’s the answer to living lean, so buy at least a week’s worth of vegetables and fruits so you’re never without.
Keep in mind that you are supposed be eating at least seven servings a day, and that’s 42 servings a week. Stock up, and never underestimate the power of frozen veggies! They stay fresh and are always available when you need them.
