Veggies Are Key
Registered dietitian and co-creator of Beachbody's 2B Mindset nutrition program Ilana Muhlstein, MS, RDN, said vegetables are the food group you want to be filling up on the most. "They are high in volume and weight and fill up our stomachs, which helps us register the feeling of fullness," Ilana said. When you're hungry and sit down to eat a meal, get at least five to six bites of veggies in first.
Leslie also says to include veggies in every single meal and snack. They're low in calories, which means you can eat tons without gaining weight. Registered dietitians Stephanie Clarke, RD, and Willow Jarosh, RD, of C&J Nutrition agree and say that veggies are also high in fibre, so they'll satiate your hunger longer, which helps you consume fewer daily calories.
