Lose Weight by Eating More Fruits & Vegetables!
Absolutely! Adding more fresh fruits and vegetables to your diet is an excellent way to promote weight loss. Because they're high in fiber and moisture content, fruits and vegetables satisfy hunger and help fill you up.
Ounce for ounce, most fruits and veggies have far less fat and fewer calories than foods that are highly processed, including potato chips, cookies and crackers. For the same number of calories you'd get from a typical 2-ounce chocolate candy bar, you could eat a whole pound of apples! Even better, fruits and vegetables are loaded with vitamins and minerals that contribute to good health and kids' nutrition.
