Eat Veggies to Lose Weight

food

Here is a picture from Canada’s Food Guide 2008.  7 to 8 servings of fruits and veggies seems like a lot of roughage.  It did to me.  But 1/2 a cup or a small fruit is a serving.  I started picking up veggies (carrots, english cucumber, radishes, peppers) and washing and cutting them up when I got back from the store, usually Sunday afternoons.  I divy the veggies into 5 tupperware containers, about 1 to 1.5 cups each into a tupperware container, one for each day of the work week.  I can’t stress how much this makes it easier to quickly put together a lunch in the AM.  I also divied up almonds into smaller containers that are ready to go. 

The food guide is the basis of the Eat Clean Diet, too.
