Veggies fill you with fiber & water to help curb your appetite

Weight-loss Challenge: Slash dinner calories with these veggies

Eat your veggies! They fill you up with fiber and water to help curb your appetite.


Slash your dinner calories by up to 20 percent by beginning dinner with a non-starchy veggie course—a bowl of broth-based vegetable soup, a large tossed salad with low-cal dressing, or something as simple as a sliced cucumber or handful of baby carrots.
All of these vegetable options are high in volume and loaded with fiber and water, so they fill up your belly and immediately start to curb your appetite. That means you’ll likely eat less of your main entrée and end up saving yourself major calories at dinner.
For the perfect pre-meal soup, get the recipe for Joy’s Skinny Veggie Soup.
