Lose Weight In 2 Weeks, With These Veggies

Lose Weight In 2 Weeks

Hello, welcome to Losing Weight With Pat. This is the place to learn what veggies you should be eating.

Still, want to lose weight in 2 weeks, do you? This is my 4th post in this series. Lose Weight in 2 weeks. Follow everything I have already posted plus some. You just need a plan of action. Keep it in the back of your mind. I hope you will go back and read the beginning of this series:

Go back, check them out and read on. Now, do the exercise and eat those yummy fruits. Don’t forget your veggies. Veggies should be a part of your everyday meal. There are a lot of veggies out there. I’m going to write down the best ones you should be eating. The top 6 that will have your taste buds running wild:

  1. Broccoli
  2. Cauliflower
  3. Lettuce
  4. Spinach
  5. Brussels Sprouts
  6. Pickles

Besides losing weight eating these veggies, I want to give you some other benefits. You want weight loss, but you should also want to live a long healthy life. That alone should be our goal.

Broccoli

When I was a kid and I’m pretty sure a lot of people would agree, but Broccoli was not the best kind of food to eat.Broccoli can be eaten with just about anything. In a salad, you can cook it and eat it raw for a snack. They taste great.

Broccoli
Very healthy for you

If you are trying to lose weight, just eating Broccoli a few times a week will cut down the number of calories you consume. It is also high in dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Broccoli is a low-calorie food that can fill you up quickly. Being high in fiber levels and water content adds volume to your meal without adding empty calories. So you can eat and still lose weight.

1 serving (148 grams) of Broccoli only has 50 calories. They Have 0.60 grams of fat, but it does have 0.01 grams of Saturated and Polyunsaturated fat. But that is low. Also, you will get 4.2 grams of Protein. Not bad at all. At least, I don’t think it is.

Now it’s up to you to start making Broccoli part of your grocery list.

Cauliflower

Cauliflower is another vegetable that as a kid, we did not agree with. In time, we learn to like them more and more. Cauliflower again just like Broccoli can be eaten in salads. They taste great. Cauliflower is strong in flavor and that allows it to stand alone without meat or other fatty foods. So cooking them is a great idea.

Cauliflower takes long to chew when eating them raw. That helps you know when you are full and you can control your eating. Cauliflower has no fat and is high in vitamin C. Also, Cauliflower can pass for a low-carb version of mashed potatoes.  Cauliflower can improve heart health, fill you up with its fiber, and strengthen the immune system.

Cauliflower
Better than you think

For just 1 cup of Cauliflower, has 25 calories. Like I said it has no fat. Also, it is high in Potassium with 39.4mg.

Cauliflower is one of healthiest veggies you can eat. So throw them on your list and start eating them.

Lettuce

Lettuce, what can I say about Lettuce. Without the Lettuce, you would not be able to put in the Broccoli and Cauliflower. Salads are great for weight loss but putting too much dressing on it can increase the calorie intake. So get a very light dressing and don’t put too much on your salad.

The darker the color of the salad green, the more nutritious it is. Having only 12 calories and 0 fat for one shredded cup is why lettuce is good for weight loss. There are more than enough different salads out there. So make different ones.

I love salads, and I eat at least 2 or 3 days a week just a good salad for lunch or dinner. So next time you go to the store throw a few heads of Lettuce in your cart. Oh yeah, don’t forget the light low-fat dressing.

Spinach

I’ll be the first to confess, but I don’t eat Spinach. Could never stomach it. I’m writing this for those of you that do eat them. I tried as a kid and still to this day, will not eat them.

Spinach can boost weight loss by 43%, curbing food cravings by 95%. They can slow the digestion process giving intestinal hormone enough time to signal to the brain that the body is full.

Spinach can be eaten in Salads and you can also make a Spinach shake if you can stomach it.  Spinach is a powerhouse when it comes to nutritional facts. 1 cup(30g) has only 7 calories and 0.1 g of fat. It’s loaded in Potassium with 167 grams.

So if you can eat them, get them. That’s all I have to say about Spinach. Hey, maybe I’ll give them one more chance.

Brussel Sprouts

Brussel Sprouts, it really took me a long, very long time to get used to these veggies. I really started eating them when I was living with my sister. She would make them all the time.  Brussel Sprouts just don’t get the credit they deserve. They are part of the Super Foods.

Brussel Sprouts
The Veggies before forget about

Eating Brussel Sprouts on a regular basis as part of your balanced diet will help you with weight loss. Brussel Sprouts is very low in calorie and just a trace of fat. Also, Brussel Sprouts having a large amount of Vitamin C can improve your body’s ability to burn fat during some easing exercises.

1 Sprout(0.7 oz) only has 8 calories, with a total fat of 0.1 g of Fat. So both those are not that bad at all. I hope you all will agree?

So grab some Brussel Sprouts and added it to that main meal. You will be glad you did.

Pickles

Pickles are the bomb. They taste to go on food and alone. Pickles are the best snack veggies. Pickles are low in calories, therefore, may be part of a balanced, calorie-restricted diet for weight loss.  Being low in protein and high in sodium, you really have to be careful when making Pickles part of your diet.

Pickles
Pickles are great but don’t depend on them

I cup of chopped or diced pickles have 17.2 calories and 1.7 fat. But remember that Pickles are high in sodium, you don’t want high blood pressure. So, you can make it a part of your diet but don’t rely on Pickles. Make sure to be eating other lean products.

My Final Words

So now it’s up to you. Change your diet. Eat better and do a little bit of exercise and I promise you will start to see a difference.

So please leave a comment. I always want to hear from everybody out there. Any questions, I’ll be glad to answer.

Thank you for visiting Losing Weight With Pat.

STAY AWESOME AND 

HAVE A GREAT ONE

  1. I used to hate brussel sprouts as a kid. Though, as I got older I started to understand why we should consume foods that are healthier for us. Didn’t know cauliflower had no fat in it either. that’s really interesting!

    1. Yes, I was the same way, I like brussel sprouts now but for some reason I still can’t seem to get into Spinach. I guess losing one vegetable won’t hurt. There are a bunch more.

  2. hi!
    Well I have to say that this is an interesting combination of veggies! I really like pickles so I am off to a good start. I actually don’t mind any of those veggies. Love cauliflower and spinach and lettuce. And I like my broccoli cooked or raw with some dip. All very low in calories and high in fiber. Thanks for the info

  3. Hello!
    This is a very helpful post. I am trying to lose some weight for my vacation but I am not willing to do any extreme diet. I am so surprised that these vegetables can actually help you shed some pounds. That is amazing! I love most of these, especially pickles and brussel sprouts. Thank you so much for sharing. I will follow your tips!

    1. You really don’t have to go on a diet, just change your eating habits. Also, you don’t really have to do extreme exercises, just maybe walk a little. You could try the Venus Factor. It’s pretty much is a natural way to lose weight.

  4. Great article! Definitely a lot of insight and research done here! The hardest part about losing weight is definitely the diet, the motivation and the dedication to stick to your guns and do it is one of the hardest things a lot of people have to do in their lives.
