Eat me. When talking fruits and veggies, it’s a no brainer. You gotta eat them as much as possible. Don’t like them? Well guess what, you aren’t three any more, so deal with it. It’s the easiest way to 1: get nutrients into your body, 2: fill up in a healthy way, and 3: Eat lower calorie snacks and meals.
When I gained a lot of weight after living in France for a while (what can I say, I indulged) I met with a nutritionist, and in a world where all you hear is don’t eat this, don’t eat that, don’t don’t don’t…he gave me the best advice: eat as much produce as you want. I love to eat. This was great news. Yhatzee.
So, just try and eat some sort of fruit or veggie with every meal (sorry, fried and covered in Ranch dressing does not count), and you’ll notice a difference. Your body will start to crave them, and then it’s smooth sailing from there.
