Avocados weigh between 150 and 350 grams, which means that one avocado has between 230 to 560 calories. That may sound a lot, but it is also very satisfying.

  1. I don’t know why some people take chemicals in the form of pills and powders to lose weight when they can lose weight the natural way by eating foods that are rich in nutrients without any side effects. The key to losing weight is in what we consume, just as what we consume can cause weight gain so what we consume can and will contribute to weight loss and as we add exercise to our weight loss program is even better.

    • Hello Norman, thank you so much for your feedback. I am complete with you. Good, healthy food tastes delicious and does not make you fat. Unfortunately, most people have forgotten because they almost always eat heavily processed foods or fast food. It is full of preservatives, sugar, and fats. To live a healthy lifestyle, you have to learn to buy healthy food and cook yourself. I will write about it in my following report. 

      Have a nice day, Monique.

  2. Hi Monique,

    This is a great list of the best veggies to eat for weight loss.  I try to eat most of these veggies as part of my daily diet, but some of them I have never tried like kimchi and beetroot.  They sound interesting and definitely healthy.  I was surprised to learn that cucumber has cancer-fighting properties, that’s great!  I just figured because it was mostly water, that it didn’t have very much nutritional qualities.

    Thanks for sharing, I will definitely be adding more veggies into my daily meals.

    Jenny.

  3. Thank you very much for this useful post. I have taken note. I would also like to share some of the foods I avoid to lose weight.

    I avoid Sugar and its derivatives. Sugar is the most widely used natural product in the world to sweeten food and beverages. But to much translates into less health.

    I also avoid refined flours.

    And last but not least, I avoid the three fs, which are fats and fried foods.

    • Hello Abel, it seems you are on a healthy path already. Cut out the 3 F’s is the best you can do for health. Take care you drink enough, man’s problem nr 1. Don’t dehydrate. Eat fruits during the morning hours.

      Start at 11 Am with eating your fruits, when you are doing the Intermittent Fasting.

  4. Eating mostly vegetables as part of a complex diet is a great way to slim down while getting all the nutrients you need.  It’s a sustainable lifestyle and a great long-term solution for being fit and healthy.  So many vegetables are nutrient dense foods, which provide all the vitamins, minerals, amino acids, etc. that the body needs.  I especially love potatoes.  They are considered a “complete food” which means that you could eat a diet of only potatoes and survive because they provide everything your body needs.  Disclaimer – Please only try a potato diet under doctor supervision!

    • Hello Molly, thank you for the feedback. 

      I am not a fan of monotonous diets. You have to change your lifestyle into a healthy one. Then you can finely lose weight, become healthy and fit again. Eating only one product isn’t possible on a long turn. You are longing for other food, and when you stop, you fall into the never satisfied trap, eating all the food you couldn’t eat for a long time. Stay by Intermittent Fasting, eat healthy- delicious food. You can find a lot of Intermittent Fasting combinations on my website. For combining Intermittent Fasting, take a look at the links below.

  6. When I saw your article. I jumped into it fast because I am not only concern of my personal weight loss but also to the diet of my husband who was restricted for quite some time on meat, high sugar and high uric acid foods.

    So, I need to select from those which you suggested. His doctor gave a brochure of the vegetables that he should not eat. Not really a big issue here.

    I eat alternately what you recommends. And my favorite among them are mushrooms, cucumber and carrot. I love to saute mushroom in garlic and butter while munching carrot and cucumber fresh and with peel.

    • Hello Rose, thank God you decided to change your diet. It can be a lifesaver for your husband. When the body is saturated with acid, diseases can develop. The body is strong, but have their limits. To live on sugar, fat, and acid foods is extremely unhealthy. Go for your favorite veggies, eat lean meat two times a week. Do Intermittent Fasting, and you will see how quickly your family is slender, fit, and healthy again.

      If you have questions, I am here to help you. I will link an article for you.

      Intermittent Fasting, health benefits.

  7. Hi Monique. Thank you for very interesting article. Last year was very difficult to keep good weight, with spending so much time in home and gym closed. That’s why proper diet is more important then ever. I knew that some vegetables are describing are good for health, but there are also surprises. I always though that potatoes or mushrooms don’t have too good effect on our diet, but looking on your article I will definitely include them more in my daily diet.

    • Thank you so much for your feedback. You are not the only one many people who don’t know the benefits of potatoes or mushrooms. Did you know mushrooms are high in Vit D. Science found out Vitamin D plays a huge role in Corona resistants? In Switzerland, they saved lots of elderly people from adding Vit D to their daily diet. Potatoes are delicious, extremely low in calories, and healthy. With the low-carb movement, unfortunately, the potato became a bad reputation.

      Start with veggies, and you will see how delicios they are.

      Monique
