The most suitable vegetables for weight loss or the golden “green” rule
If you don’t have the list of allowed vegetables at hand and would like to eat them, stick to a simple rule. The colour. Green or white vegetables usually contain fewer carbohydrates than darker-coloured vegetables. For example, in red peppers there are twice as many carbohydrates than in white peppers. Tomato has twice as many carbohydrates than cucumber. You’ll never make a mistake with lettuce. But if there is another temptation at a barbecue party, always choose the vegetables instead. Any type. Drink a glass of water and start talking about an interesting topic. Then maybe “craving” will leave you.
