Something Green...

When was the last time you had something green? Besides ‘haari chutney’.

When you start your meal with greens like lettuce, kale, and spinach, you tend to consume high-volume food. They are fiber-rich and have minimal carbohydrate content. Now that is the trick! Your belly is full, but minimal calories are added!

Increase satiety level.

Greens contain an enzyme known as thylakoids, which increases your satiety level. So, if you ensure taking greens in every meal, you will tend to avoid snacks later on.

Loaded with vitamins.

The green leafy veggies are the densest when it comes to micronutrients. They help in decreasing oxidative stress and reduce the levels of stress hormones in your body. Now, why is that important? Hormonal fluctuation and elevated stress levels are a sign of belly fat and insulin resistance.

A fantastic source of Folic acid!

Folic acid plays a critical role in metabolism as well as protein digestion. Folic acid is especially important for soon-to-be mommies as it helps prevent birth defects.

How much greens should be consumed per day?

Ideally, you should make sure you consume 1g per kg of your body weight every day.


Okay, suppose your weight is 57 kg, then you should eat 57 g greens per day.

Smoothies, salads, soups, and sabzi’s! Get going.

Here's a list of greens you can look out for:

  • Brahmi

  • Lettuce

  • Mint

  • Kale

  • Fenugreek (methi)

  • Amaranth leaves

  • Celery

  • Corriander

  • Dill

  • Watercress leaves
