Health Tip: Fruit and Veggies May Help Shed Pounds

They'll help you cut back on calories

(HealthDay News) -- Ditching pasta or rice in favor of fruit and vegetables can help you shed pounds and feel healthier.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests:

  • Extra fruit and veggies will help you feel full and satisfied, while cutting back on calories.
  • Fruit and vegetables contain vitamins and minerals, fiber and other substances that are key to good health.
  • Steam veggies, using low-cal dressings. Add herbs and spices for more flavor.
  • Choose whole fruit over dried, which loses a lot of the original fiber.
  • Make sure your dinner plate is a typical size, not larger than it should be.
