A Dietitian Says to Prep This 1 Food Every Week to Lose Weight

Diet plays a huge role in weight loss, so one of the biggest questions registered dietitian Sheri Kasper gets asked by clients is what's one thing they can do right now to start losing weight. Sheri shared with POPSUGAR that she tells clients to "eat more veggies." Why? For these three reasons:

  1. Veggies let you volume eat: When you're trying to lose weight, reducing portion sizes is effective, but unfortunately you're left feeling restricted and hungry. Since veggies are low in calories and many are low in carbs, you can eat huge portions, feel more satisfied, and still lose weight.
  2. Veggies take a long time to eat: Salads and vegetables require lots of time to chew, which prevents you from scarfing down your meal too fast. This gives your brain a chance to get the memo that you're full and helps you honor your satiety cues.
  3. Veggies are full of fiber and water: This adds to the "I'm full" feeling, so you eat less!

To encourage you to eat more veggies throughout the week, Sheri is a huge fan of meal prepping. Here are some things you can do at the beginning of the week:
