Can you shed fat without the tiresome chore of counting calories?
A high intake of vegetables allows you to do this, via a number of ways:
✅ They provide bulk to the diet but contribute very few calories. ✅ Vegetables force the body to burn more energy during processing of meals. ✅ Vegetables also promote fat loss by increasing satiety (the feeling of fullness from eating food). Its a strategy that makes sticking to a calorie controlled diet much easier.
