Back Bay Fitness Tip of the Week

Eat More Vegetables

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

Vegetables are nutrient dense, provide needed vitamins and minerals, contain healing chemical compounds like antioxidants and phytochemicals, and are associated with decreased illness. In addition to being good for health, non-starchy vegetables are also good for weight-loss and maintenance due to the fact that they are satisfying and low calorie.

Ideas to Eat More Vegetables: 

  1. Eat at least one serving of vegetables with every meal and snack.
  2. Reserve half of your plate at every meal for produce, mostly non-starch vegetables.
  3. Eat at least 3 or 4 servings of vegetables a day (serving = 1cup raw or 1/2cup cooked)
  4. Drink your veggies in a green smoothie (60% vegetables, 40% fruit)

Common Non-Starchy Vegetables: 

Artichoke, Artichoke, Asparagus, Baby Corn, Bamboo, Beans (green, wax, Italian), Bean Sprouts, Beets , Brussels Sprouts, Broccoli, Cabbage (green, bok choy, Chinese), Carrots, Cauliflower, Celery, Chayote, Cucumber, Daikon, Eggplant, Greens (collard, kale, mustard, turnip, swiss chard), Mushrooms, Okra, Onions, Pea Pods, Peppers, Radishes, Rutabaga, Salad greens (chicory, endive, escarole, lettuce, romaine, spinach, arugula, radicchio, watercress), Sprouts, Squash (cushaw, summer, crookneck, spaghetti, zucchini), Tomato, Turnips, Water chestnuts

Fail to Plan, Plan to Fail

As with any goal, if a daily plan is not established it is not likely the critical daily behaviors will happen, and progress will be slower than hoped for.

Establish the Plan

Plan in advance what you will do for your workout each day’s workout and what time you will do it. Plan what you will eat for the next three meals so when the hunger comes you won’t be caught in a time crunch and reach for food that is quick but less nutritious.

Plan for the Unpredictable

Life gets crazy sometimes, meet the craziness with confidence by having back-up plans for your food and exercise. You could keep meal replacement powder, protein bars, or other non-perishable foods like nuts and jerky in your work desk. Find ways to get a cardio workout at home if you can’t make it to the gym, you can ask your trainer for ideas.
