Greens and vegetables are undoubtedly one of the best foods you can eat to improve your health as well as lose weight. And the reason is simple. Leafy greens and other vegetables are not only packed with fiber but also a number of vitamins, minerals and other plant-based substances that can help protect you against many health conditions.
If you are like most people, you may instantly think of all bacteria being bad. But that is not the truth. In fact, your body is full of both good and bad bacteria and the one which dominates often dictates your health.
While many other traditional diets build their dinner plate around meat, the plant based diet does the same around vegetables of all sorts. But do not limit yourself to thinking greens only, for while these may be fairly healthy, they do not have the caloric density and therefore the needed energy, to keep us going for the rest of the day.
