Best Way to Lose Weight

Experts Say This Is the Number 1 Way to Lose Weight

You've tried everything, but this year is going to be different. This is the year that you're finally getting down to business and losing the weight you've gained, whether it was from too many slices of pizza and beer in college, stubborn pregnancy weight, or that "food baby" you've been growing with pints of ice cream. You've had enough, and although you know there's no easy fix, we asked certified dietitian Leslie Langevin, MS, RD, CD of Whole Health Nutrition to share the one simple thing you need to do to jump-start your weight loss and start seeing results.

We might as well have asked our mothers, because her advice is the same: to "eat more vegetables." There are so many reasons to eat them — they're low in calories and many are also low in carbs. The high-water content and all the chewing it takes to break vegetables down in your mouth can help you feel full faster, so you eat less food overall. Plus the high amount of fibre in vegetables will keep you feeling full for longer to prevent snacking later.

Eating more veg is a growing trend, and it seems that in 2016, plants will be the new meat, moving vegetables from the side of the plate to the centre. The easiest way to eat more vegetables is to include them in every meal and snack — even breakfast. Not sure how to snack on veg aside from hitting the salad bar or ordering a side of sweet potato fries? Check out the ideas below to get you onboard the all-day veg train.
