3. Eat As Many Veggies As You Want
Make sure that at every meal, lots of veggies are included. They help keep you fuller for longer periods of time and provides our bodies with the vitamins and minerals needed to function optimally.
Roast, grill, steam, stir fry, or eat raw – there are countless ways to cook and prepare fresh vegetables. Non starchy vegetables are best for weight loss, so reduce your tubers (potatoes, sweet potatoes, yams etc) until you are at your ideal weight.
It’s also best to avoid most legumes such as kidney beans, canned beans (especially with sugar), soy beans and peanuts. Most legumes are extremely toxic in their raw state and have to be soaked, fermented, or sprouted in order to be safe to eat.
