7 Simple Slimming Secrets To Lose Body Fat
Simple Slimming Secret #5: Eat One Large, Preferably Organic, Raw Salad Per Day
By Amy Fournier
Have at least one, HUGE mixed salad per day.
This is a great way to get all sorts of wonderful nutrition into your body, but with minimal calories. Plus the high water content of the veggies is a major dieting trick to help fill you up and control hunger, yet still keep your weight where you like it.
Include as much variety and color as you can in your salad. Alternate your choices of beautiful veggies each day and be brave and try something new! Just pile it all on there and enjoy.
One word of caution particularly at salad bars: be sure to limit the starchy carbs like the higher glycemic veggies such as potatoes/potato salad, sweet potatoes, dried fruit, squash, carrots and onions, as well as the croutons, items with dressings and marinades and things made with mayonnaise. These will sabotage your weight loss goals.
Also caution with the loose nuts which are healthy but also high calorie. Therefore be sure to limit nuts to just a small handful. Instead include more green, fibrous carbohydrates or seeds for added crunch.
