Veggies Proven to Accelerate Weight Loss

If you are on a weight loss journey, odds are you are looking for every hack in the book that might speed up the process. I hear you! Fortunately, there are lots of changes you can make to your diet to accelerate weight loss, one of which is upping your vegetable intake.

Fruits and vegetables have a number of properties that make them especially effective at spurring weight loss. They contain few calories but also pack a lot of fiber, two things you absolutely want when trying to lose weight. Fiber (especially soluble fiber) has been shown to increase satiety, which helps you feel full more quickly by helping control your appetite.

Additionally, vegetables have a high water content, which also helps make them more filling than other foods  (even those higher in calories). Consuming more water in food, not just alongside your meal as a drink, can help you feel more satisfied with fewer calories in the long term.

Wondering which veggies are likely to make the most difference? You’ve come to the right place. Here are the vegetables most likely to accelerate weight loss!

Colorful fresh organic vegetables

Broccoli

A fantastic source of fiber and calcium, broccoli is frequently tied to weight loss and a host of other health benefits. Eat it raw to get the most benefit!

Olives

It may be surprising, but olives have been shown to reduce the potential of fat storage by slowing blood elevation. Cool, right? They’re also loaded with heart-healthy essential fatty acids.

Cabbage

Rich in antioxidants like vitamin C, cabbage not only accelerates weight loss, it is a great immunity booster! Just make sure you balance this calorie-limited option with healthy fats to keep you strong.

Cauliflower

Cauliflower is a low-density vegetable with no fat, tons of fiber and versatility you just don’t get with many other veggies. Use it in place of rice for a weight loss-friendly substitute.

Beans

Green, black, navy or kidney, just 3/4 cup a day of beans can do some serious work for you while you work on shedding pounds. Beans are also loaded with protein, which will help you stay strong in the face of cravings.

Cucumber

Cucumbers are extremely low in calories (just 16 calories per cup!), full of water and have a lot of fiber in the peel. Plus, they’re super easy to snack on throughout the day!
