It's All About More-Eat More Salad

Fresh Salad with Vinegar and Oil and Ground Pepper

Did you know that big salad eaters were likely to lose 8 1/2 times more weight than those that consume few greens?  Leafy greens have importent nutrients that aid weight loss, including folate which is a B vitamin.

Consume as many leafy greens as you can to boost your weight loss.  To prevent further fat storage use dressings made with healthy oils which contain linoleic acid, such as safflower oil.  Be creative, add spinach to omelettes, quiches, and pasta dishes.  Try some exotic greens such as escarole, bok choy, or broccolie rabe.

Visit WebMD and watch this video to see how to spruce up your salads and take them from boring to luscious!
