With the Holidays approaching quickly, we here at FitPerez want you to know that we understand that you might slip up here and there.
But, we also want you to know that if it happens in moderation, it might not be so bad after all — especially if you're also eating these 7 foods that can help you LOSE weight!
Everyone has heard that if you want to lose weight, drink more water. While this is true, do you wonder why?
It's because it's healthy and calorie and sugar free and it fills you up so you're less hungry. And guess what? That same thing happens with water-full foods. Like in-season fruits and vegetables, which can be up to 90% water! They fill you up and keep you healthy too!
If you don't like broccoli, you're totally missing out on a lot of calcium and fiber — which promote weight loss!
Cabbage is rich in antioxidants like vitamin C, and can really boost your immune system. The less sick you are, the more likely you'll stay active.
Did you know that cauliflower is full of cancer-fighting phytonutrients and is a great source of vitamin C and folate?
You do now! No more excuses!
Protect your heart and add grapefruit to your diet — you'll thank us:
Grapefruit contains vitamin C, folic acid, and potassium, along with pectin, a soluble fiber that may be a strong ally against atherosclerosis. Pink and red varieties also have vitamin A and lycopene, a phytochemical that protects arterial walls from oxidative damage.
LET US HAVE LETTUCE!
Lettuce has a whopping 60-70 calories per pound.
Wait, did we say whopping?? We meant measly!
Romaine lettuce alone is a great source of B vitamins, folic acid, and manganese, which helps regulate blood sugar and is essential for proper immune system function.
RAD RADISHES ARE RAD
Just… just know that radishes have potassium, folic acid, antioxidants, and sulfur compounds that aid in digestion. And those leafy green tops have a ton more calcium than the roots. Just sayin'!
All of these would be super easy to add into your holiday diets! Give'em a try, what do you have to lose??
… other than weight?? Ha!
