Vegetables are great because they have a lot of things going for them:

  1. They fill you up
  2. They’re low in calories
  3. They flood your body with nutrients
    1. In addition, these nutrients can help you fight off certain diseases such as diabetes and heart disease

Substituting fattening foods with vegetables means you will get fuller faster, while putting nutrients into your body. Not only will you feel better, but you will start to look better. Instead of putting empty calories into your body, you will be replenishing the nutrients you are losing. In conclusion, try to add more vegetables to your diet!
