Pri­ori­tise Pro­duce

Men's Health (Malaysia) - - Fitness -

Have veg­eta­bles and fruit at ev­ery meal; they’re loaded with vi­ta­mins, min­er­als and phy­tonu­tri­ents. Plus, they’re low in calo­ries and help you feel full be­cause of their wa­ter and fi­bre con­tent. Here’s an­other way to think about the power of pro­duce: veg­eta­bles el­bow out the more calo­rie-laden foods that tend to crowd your plate. If you pile on the veggies, you won’t have room for pasta. Think you’ll be sad miss­ing out on mac ’n’ cheese? Maybe not: Peo­ple in an Aus­tralian study who in­creased their fruit and veg­etable in­take re­ported im­prove­ments in over­all life sat­is­fac­tion. Shoot for two fist-size por­tions of pro­duce at each meal, St. Pierre says.
