Translation: Sarah Zayed- To lose weight we need to follow a balanced diet every day and do regular physical activity.
But a few small everyday details can make a big difference, among them: Eating a green salad before your main meal.
Leafy greens, such as lettuce, watermelon and spinach are excellent sources of fiber.
Fiber promotes satiety and helps reduce the total caloric value of a meal by about 12%, according to a 2007 scientific study published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association.
The salad plate when you start breakfast reduces the amount of food
Appetizers and salads give the body the energy it needs and prevent disease
So eating a salad of raw vegetables can be a good solution to get fiber and vitamins and avoid cravings for overly fatty meals.
A delicious salad recipe that contributes to weight loss:
100 grams of leaves (lettuce, arugula).
two tablespoons of lemon juice.
A teaspoon of olive oil.
Fresh aromatic herbs: basil, parsley and mint.
How to prepare:
We start by washing the leaves and apples, then place the lettuce in a large bowl.
Cut the apples into small cubes and add to the salad. Then add a teaspoon of olive oil and two tablespoons of lemon juice.
Mix the ingredients and add the fat-free yogurt.
Finally, mix the ingredients again and add the fresh aromatic herbs: basil and parsley, and the raw green salad is ready to eat.
