The Missing Ingredient in Your Diet That is Keeping You Fat and Tired.

Whenever I hear someone say they just can't lose weight,
the first question I ask is if they are eating their fruits and
vegetables. Only one person has ever said yes. The rest have
given me a litany of excuses about why they don't - with the
leading reason being, "I don't like vegetables".

There are a lot of reasons why you want to eat right.

You'll Look Better

Your skin is an outer reflection of how you treat your body.
Not enough water? Not enough sleep? Not enough nutrients?
It all shows on your face.

Weight Loss

Obviously, if you were eating right, you wouldn't be over-
weight. That's a given. But it's more than that. It affects
your self-esteem. It's devastating to your body. So much
more is coming to light about how being overweight, and
lack of nutrients over time are causing a shocking increase
in debilitating illnesses.

Health

Are you sick often? Both of my sisters are. You guessed it -
they don't like vegetables. But what's more startling is the
number of people who are getting the so-called lifestyle
illnesses - type 2 diabetes, heart disease and cancers.
Other aging related problems could be decreased, if not
stopped all together by changing to a healthier lifestyle.

Energy

If you don't have the energy to do more than sit on the couch
in front of the television now - what do you think the quality
of your life will be when you're 70?

Ok, You know all the reasons why you should - but you just
can't seem to get yourself past the time and taste issues.
Let's start off small. Here are some easy tips for getting your
fruits and vegetables in everyday.

* Drink cranberry juice and tomato juice or a V8 everyday.

* Eat a piece of fruit every morning with breakfast. Not for
   breakfast - WITH breakfast.

* Eat 1 cup of dark greens everyday. It could be leaf lettuce
   (no head-lettuce!), or spinach, or broccoli. Top your salads
   with carrots, tomatoes, dried cranberries, almonds, onion,
   broccoli, whatever…. Get creative! There's another couple
   servings. It could be as simple as cut up broccoli and some
   salad dressing to dip it in. I personally like Catalina Light
   for my broccoli. Try it! It worked on the kids.

* If you really can't spare the 5 minutes it takes to cut up
   vegetables, there are tons of already cut and bagged
   varieties. Just rinse and eat. But it's better to take that
   2 minutes and wash it and cut it yourself.

* When planning dinner, plan your fruits and veggies first.

The good news is - you can eat as much of these as you
want. Try a loaded tossed salad, fresh green beans, with
maybe some cantaloupe, or pineapple, or honeydew, or
strawberries, or grapes, and a nice grilled chicken breast.
Add one carb - baked potato or sweet potato, rice, French
bread, or garlic bread made with olive oil instead of butter.
The whole meal takes about 20 minutes to prepare. It's a lot
of food, and it tastes good.

You'll find that these dinners are really a breeze to make and
they're inexpensive.

Change the order of what you eat. Eat your fruits and
veggies first. If you leave anything on your plate, it should
be the carb.

And here's a couple more tips to help you get that leaner,
healthier, great looking body-

Drink a full glass of water every couple of hours to keep your
body hydrated and working at peak performance levels.

Drink green tea.

As a rule, don't eat after 8 PM.

Get up and move after dinner. Go for a walk. Walk the dog.
Vacuum. Play catch with the kids. Just do something.

Just these few small changes can make a big difference. Try
it out for a couple of weeks and see what happens. You'll be
amazed at how much better you feel.

You know, there's more to this story than just losing weight.

you're eating is doing inside your body.
