Ditch Sad Vegetables….

Vegetables can make you gain weight. I can see people now getting very upset with the headline. We are, after all, the developers of a medically endorsed weight-loss product. And, as many people already know, we are the recipients of the 2022 Psychological Weight-Loss Award. Yet here we are talking about people ditching sad vegetables!

Vegetables can make you gain weight

But please, don’t get too hot under the collar. What I am suggesting is that we ‘ditch’ the sad vegetables, not the happy healthy ones. It is a fact, and most people already know that not all vegetables are helpful when trying to lose weight, especially if you are following a low-carb diet.

cauliflower is a perfect low-carb vegetable

Broccoli as an example is very good; potatoes on the other hand are bad. Spinach is very good; parsnips on the other hand are bad. One more example, I do not want you to get bored; cauliflower is very good, whereas sweet potato is not so good. For anyone trying to adopt a low-carb dieting regimen it can resemble nightmare.

potatoes are very high in carbs

One approach that I was introduced to with regard to what vegetables to eat and what ones to be wary of, relates to the title of this page. But first, just before you read any further, let me ask you, can you spot any obvious clue in the three examples in the last paragraph..? What do you think they have done to me to be called ‘sad’?

Well, for starters they never come out and play in the sunshine, do they? Virtually every vegetable that you need to keep an eye on grows in the dark; I mean it grows alone, underground. The happy low-carb ones are generally out in the sunshine having fun. This, of course, is not a 100% strict rule, but it is a good one to remember.

I was also told, and this may well be a ‘wind up’ (I don’t really know), that the reason the bad ones tend to be so anti-social and keep themselves hidden away in the dark, is because they are so attractive to predators!!! You probably agree; it does sound like a ‘wind-up’ doesn’t it! Apparently, so the story goes, in order to stop them being eaten by insects, all the starchy, sweet-tasting things are kept hidden away underground. In contrast, the vegetables that grow above the ground, such as broccoli, spinach and cauliflower for example, all contain very little starch, or sugar. It sort of makes sense, don’t you think?

fried onions

No one can deny the rich, sweet taste of roast parsnips. It’s the same as fried onions; the smell, as they are being fried, as they caramelise (that’s the sugar) is incredible!

High-Carb Vegetables to Avoid

Jennifer Aniston is the founder of Balance Your Plate, an online food and lifestyle coaching service. In her article “7 High-Carb Vegetables You’ll Want To Avoid If Following a Low-Carb Diet” she outlines what vegetables you can eat to maintain a low-carb diet, and which ones to avoid. Her top three are potatoes, corn and sweet potatoes. She says of corn: If you are following a low-carb diet, you must avoid corn. Corn is a high-carb vegetable that can easily kick you out of ketosis. While it is technically a wholegrain, it is also very high in sugar. A single ear of corn can have as much as 30 grams of carbohydrates. That’s a lot, when you think that some people on low-carb diets try to get under 20 grams a day.

It can seem a bit like a minefield; most things around dieting and weight loss are. When we were kids, our parents told us to eat up all our vegetables. We were promised that they would make us healthy and strong. Then, as we grew older, we were advised to increase the amount of vegetables we ate because they were the healthiest thing on the plate. Now it seems we are being told to be careful around some of them!

Vegetables are clearly a great addition to any diet, but some vegetables are better than others when it comes to weight loss. Fibre is one of the most important factors when it comes to weight loss, because it fills you up and helps you stay full for longer periods of time. Low-carb vegetables like asparagus, artichokes, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, cabbage and spinach are rich in fibre and low in calories, so they are perfect for helping with weight loss.

Eating low-carb vegetables can be an easy way to lose weight. High fibre vegetables are filling and nutrient-dense, meaning they take up a lot of room in your stomach while contributing many essential nutrients. Vegetables may also have the added benefit of helping you feel full, which may stop you from eating other, high-calorie foods that you don’t need.

Below is a selection of weight-loss tips that everyone can start using straight away. And, if you enroll in the My Weigh Less Course, you will learn many more of our helpful tips and techniques about how to achieve successful, permanent weight loss.

Tip No. 1 – Only Eat When You’re Hungry!

This has to be our number one, golden rule, when it comes to achieving successful weight loss. In our experience, most overweight people eat for many different reasons, other than physical hunger. But, if you allow your emotions to control your eating habits, then it is unlikely that you will be able to control your weight as a result. So, before you reach for anything to eat, stop and ask yourself first if you physically NEED to eat, or you just WANT to…

Tip No. 2 – Use a Smaller Plate!

You’ve probably heard this many times before, but it’s a fact that people who use larger plates tend to eat more food than those who eat from smaller plates. No doubt you know about the power of optical illusions. But are you aware of just how much more generous the same size portion of food appears, when presented on a smaller plate, instead of a larger one? Have a look at the image below. It’s known as the Delboeuf optical illusion. If you stick to our mantra, “always go for quality over quantity”, then you will definitely lose weight much more easily.

Tip No. 3 – Drink a Glass or Two of Water Before Your Meal!

Reduce Your Calorie Intake by over 20%, with almost with no effort! Research results, published by Harvard Medical showed that people who drank two large glasses of water, just before eating, consumed, on average, around 20% less food compared with when they didn’t drink anything before they ate. This is possibly as a result of the stretching and fullness sensation in the stomach.

Tip No. 4 – Eat Slowly and Mindfully!

A growing number of studies have consistently found a correlation between speed of eating and weight, so it is officially accepted now that faster eaters are definitely more likely to become overweight. Studies have also shown that people are much more likely to eat more when their eating is mindless, as opposed to mindful. So, make meal times an occasion by sitting down at a table, with no distractions. Then eat slowly and savour every mouthful. You will naturally eat less food and also find it easier to lose weight as a result!

Tip No. 5 – Stay Away From Sugar and Highly Processed Foods!

It’s a fact that sugar and highly processed foods have addictive properties! So much so, that many people find that once they start eating these foods, they literally can’t stop. And, of course, if you’re making such poor food choices, this in turn will make it almost impossible for you to lose weight. So, our advice is to choose healthy, unprocessed foods and limit the amount of sugar you consume. As a result, you will have far more control over how much you eat and also how much weight you can lose.

Tip No. 6 – Eat Your Favourite Foods on the Plate First!

You may not be aware of how important this tip is, but the order in which you eat your food can actually have a big impact on how much you consume! It’s quite common for overweight people to “save the best til last” when eating. In other words they only eat their favourite food right at the end. It’s not so surprising then, that they also tend to eat everything on their plate, regardless of how uncomfortably full they feel. Because, of course, they don’t want to miss out on the “best bit”!

However, our advice is to eat your favourite things first. Not only will you enjoy it more, but it’s also much easier to stop when you’ve eaten just the right amount and leave the rest on the plate.
