One thing that nearly all diet plans share is their unabashed promotion of vegetables, especially non-starchy vegetables. If you can’t seem to stomach vegetables, you’ll want to pay especially close attention to this post. If you already like vegetables, this post will make you love them even more and give you a lot of new ideas for preparing them in a time-efficient manner. Why do vegetables fit so well with practically every diet plan? Not only are they extremely good for you, but are also typically low in calories, free of fat, low in sugar and carbohydrates, and loaded with fiber. Additionally, they are great at filling an empty stomach with material that isn’t typically turned into fat. They are a miracle food and can enact wonders in helping you to achieve your ideal body.

 So why don’t we eat vegetables all the time? Three big problems we have with vegetables are that they 1) Don't Taste Very Good, 2) Are Expensive, and 3) Take a Lot of Time to Prepare. Sound familiar? These issues prevent people from taking full advantage of vegetables, not only when they are engaged in their diet, but as they attempt to maintain their losses. In my book, Four Truths About Weight Loss That Nobody Tells You, I discuss simple and specific solutions to each of these 3 problems. If vegetables are a challenge for you, don't miss out on this information to help make vegetables an integrated and enjoyable part of your diet! Four Truths About Weight Loss That Nobody Tells You is now available for purchase in Kindle or Hard Copy. - Or you can visit to learn more and to download a Free copy of the Introduction and Chapter 1.
