Which vegetables are best for weight loss?

I’m sure it comes as no surprise that vegetables are good for you. But which ones are best when it comes to managing your weight?   Research shows that vegetables with a higher fiber content or lower glycemic load are more strongly associated with a healthy weight.  This includes carrots, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, and string beans.   Here’s why –

  • Lower blood sugar and insulin spikes
  • Controlled food cravings
  • A longer-lasting “full” feeling

However, ALL veggies have health benefits and support a healthy weight.  They are incredibly low in everything we don’t want too much of (calories, fat, and sodium) and packed with all of the things most of us need more of like antioxidants, fiber, vitamins and minerals.
