Eating vegetables regularly can have many health benefits. They are one of the most natural foods and contain different vitamins, minerals and thousands of other plant chemicals known to provide health benefits. Eating vegetables can also help control weight.Vegetables are low in fat and calories, a good source of dietary fiber and provide us with extra energy. All these features help control weight effectively The presence of many vitamins and other chemicals in vegetables supply the body with nutrients necessary to boost energy production within cells. This give us a natural feeling of vitality and the energy to become more active helping to burn more energy each day.  The needs to eat fruits and vegetables daily.Vegetables are also low in sodium so they help reduce water gains. Sodium is present in virtually all processed foods, it causes the body to hold water within the interstitial areas of the body. It has been estimated that many average people may be holding up to 5 pounds of additional water caused from a high intake of sodium. Any reduction in sodium intake will help lose water weight and if we eat more vegetables our sodium intake naturally lowers.
