Fruits and Vegetables Benefit Your Waist!

Eat more fruits and non-starchy vegetables to help maintain ideal weight.

A meta-analysis of data from three large population studies involving 133, 468 men and women followed for up to 24 years found that eating more fruits and non-starchy vegetables is linked to modest weight loss. These benefits were strongest for berries, apples and pears, citrus fruits, tofu and soy, cauliflower and other calciferous vegetables like broccoli and Brussels sprouts, and leafy vegetables. Starchy vegetables such as potatoes, corn, and peas did not convey these same benefits.

PositiveTip: Focus on eating more fruits and non-starchy vegetables every day.
