January is often a difficult month when it comes to regaining weight. We all come from a time of abuse, endless dinners, meals with family and friends and huge amounts of calories that in most cases the only thing they have done has been to swell our but. For that reason, on this occasion we want to give some advice to be able to stay without hunger, to ingest a few calories and to provide our organism with the necessary nutrients.
The star food that will help us to achieve good nutrition with a low-calorie intake will be vegetables. There are some that will help us satiate much more than with others. In addition, some vegetables will provide us with many more nutrients than others. We are going to give four examples that we can go rotating in all the meals. What we recommend in order to lose weight in a healthy way is to eat these vegetables together with some type of low-fat protein. In this way, we will recover quickly from the excesses committed in recent weeks.
The broccoli is one of the star vegetables and a perfect mess when it comes to losing weight. It is very rich in vitamins A, B, K, C and E in addition to containing a lot of omega-3. This makes it an important source of antioxidants. In addition, it has high fiber content and a low-calorie content. Also, it contains many depurative properties of the organism that will help us to eliminate the toxins accumulated in this time of the year.
Peas are another food that will help us control our appetite in the best possible way when we seek to lose weight. It is a food that contains high amounts of fiber with a low-calorie intake. They constitute a satiating food, besides helping us to diminish the levels of sugar in the blood. This gives this food the best accompaniment for any meal when what we seek is weight loss.
Green beans are another perfect food to accompany any meal in times of weight loss. First of all, it is necessary to keep in mind that they contain high amounts of fiber, water (around 80%) and very few calories. That’s why they are a perfect food to feed us while we lose weight. It should not be overlooked that they contain high amounts of vitamin A and C, which will help us to feed ourselves in the best possible way. Just as they contain zinc, iron, calcium and other minerals that we cannot overlook.
Finally, we are going to stop with spinach. It is a vegetable that can be eaten raw or cooked and that will help us a lot when it comes to controlling appetite in a healthy way. It is the vegetable that provides more vitamins and minerals, amounts that in most cases we find neither in fruits nor in foods such as meat or fish. Its high content in water and fiber, coupled with its low caloric intake make spinach a perfect food to include in any slimming diet because that same fiber is what makes them much more satiating.
