Simple. Just eat more vegetables.
According to Israetel, veggies have lots of fibre, few calories and are full of volume. “This means they fill you up a lot without many calories,” he says, which is very much in sync with what the Volumetrics Diet preaches (eating something full of water so you feel full without ingesting more calories). I did that diet for 30 days and lost precisely 4 kilos (9 pounds).
The fact that most veggies don’t have that much taste is also a good thing because tasty food has the effect of making you want it more especially when you are on a fat loss diet.
When losing weight gets difficult during your diet, eat more raw veggies at the beginning of a meal – best if they are not flavoured. It is tough, but it will help you tremendously if you are serious about your diet.
