Did You Know? Eating More Of These Foods Speeds Up Detoxification And Fat Loss!

You’ve been hearing it your whole life, and I have to tell you – your Mum was right. If you want to be grow up to be healthy and strong then you have to eat all your veggies.

I don’t know if you realise this, but eating more vegetables is one of the simplest and smartest things you can do to speed up fat loss. You think you’re being so smart putting in the hard yards at the gym, saying no to breads and pasta and obediently scarfing down your protein breaky? Well, okay, you are being pretty smart with all of that, but is it possible that you’re doing so many things right on your quest for health and vitality, and yet still neglecting this one very simple element?

Forgive me if I’m jumping too rapidly to conclusions, and I must admit I have met more than a few readers who eat truckloads of veg, but for the most part? Yes, yes it is possible. If not completely probable.

9 serves of vegetables per day?! is she crazy?

If you stop by Body Incredible regularly you’ll know that I’m a big fan of Charles Poliquin (in fact, he is one of my most influential mentors, as well as my Coach for my training and Biosignature studies). You’ve probably also heard me mention Dr Jonny Bowden – Dr Jonny is a medical doctor AND a nutritionist and he wrote one of my top 5 favourite books of all time; Living the Low-carb Life. It’s both entertaining and educational, which is a great combo.

Anyway, sorry, I’m doing that go off onto 10 different tangents thing again, aren’t I?!

The point I was getting to is this – when 2 of your most respected industry professionals join forces on an article, you know it’s worth reading a couple of times. In The 9 Habits of Healthy People, which Dr Jonny wrote for Charles’ blog, he says this of vegetables (and it’s point #1!):

Eat your vegetables. No kidding. And I’m talking at least 9 servings a day.. Unless you’re following the most stringent first stage of the Atkins Diet, you should be able to consume 60-120 grams of carbs a day (depending on your weight and exercise level), and you’d have to eat a stockyard full of spinach to get to that amount. Every major study of long-lived, healthy people shows that they eat a ton of plant foods. Nothing delivers antioxidants, fiber, flavonoids, indoles, and the entire pharmacopia of disease fighting phytochemicals like stuff that grows.

As if that’s not convincing enough for you, I’ve also heard Dr Jonny say that the most important supplement for fat loss is fiber. More veg = more fiber, yes? And this is the key to detoxification, because when you lose body fat it’s actually toxins which are being dragged out of your fat cells and into your blood. Fiber is what swooshes those toxins out of the body, which I really think is a far better option than leaving them in there.

Don’t you?

but it’s too hard/i don’t have time/i only like spinach/it costs too much!

It’s pretty simple really. Either your love yourself and your desire to lose weight and be healthy or to lose the final 5 is strong enough to do what it takes, or you care more about your can’t-quite-be-bothered approach to nutrition.

There really is nothing else to say about any excuse you care to come up with.

the best veggies for fat loss and health

Later this week I’m going to post one of my favourite ‘get all your veggies in one yummy hit’ recipes. (Yup, that’s the official name of the dish!).

For now, here is a list of especially nutritious and yummy vegetables. You’ll notice they are mostly green – I’m a big believer in eating predominantly seasonal and local vegetables, and I think green is best. Add some colour now and then, but do remember that when we talk about vegetables I’m talking low-starch. This does not include pumpkin, potato, sweet potato, corn (that’s a grain anyway), and most root vegetables.

Enjoy!

  • Cruciferous veggies are great for fat loss, especially as regards your lower body. These include cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, and brussel sprouts
  • Zucchini
  • Squash
  • Green or yellow beans
  • Spinach (a great source of iron, and it really does make you strong!)
  • Any sort of lettuce or leaf (organic please as they are sprayed
    directly)
  • Cucumbers
  • Kale
  • Silverbeet (these two are great options in salads, and bitter vegetables such as Kale are great for digestion)
  • Spring onions
  • Any fresh herbs; fresh chilis
  • Celery (yummy snack with almond or cashew butter)
  • Green capsicums
  • Olives
  • Artichokes
  • Pickled foods like eggplant, green tomato (pickled stuff is great for
    lowering blood sugar response!)
  • Onion
  • Mushrooms; unless you have ever had fungal issues such as
    thrush or candida

If you feel so inclined, I’d love for you to comment and share either your favourite way to eat your veggies, or a question about what you struggle with most when it comes to getting all your greens.

Don’t forget –

Life is Now. Press Play.

🔥🔥 FIRED UP & FINANCIALLY READY TO EXPLODE is here! Eeeeeeekkkkkkkkkkk and a HALF! I have not been this, well, FIRED UP & READY TO EXPLODE in a LONG while.

https://thekatrinaruthshow.com/firedup

You know when something just comes through you?

And it’s HOLY FREAKING FLOW YES and all the things?

And you FEEL the fire and the gold and the energy and the NOW?

Well,

this is that.

AND THEN SOME.

I’m so proud to invite you in to this brand new course with me! I will be teaching this in a LIVE Facebook group with twice weekly livestream trainings (+ more!) – something I have not done in a very long while.

When you say yes to soul-

life says yes to you.

Fired up and Financially Ready to Explode is the NEXT level wealth and mindset strategy for the already successful woman who is done playing small!

Here’s the thing –

There are very clear reasons why you never quite get to that FULL inhale-exhale state of money freedom, even as your income and lifestyle goes up.

You can bet your sweet ass we gonna talk about those reasons. Understand them. And learn how to roll with them. BECAUSE YOU GET TO BE ABLE TO BREATHE FULLY BEING YOU.

And OMG. So much more. And a LOT of it comes down to understanding that the MONEY WORKS FOR YOU WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND HOW TO ROLL WITH YOUR OWN CHANGING NEEDS.

And? That there are a million freakin’ ways to make money and there is ALWAYS money there that gets to come from flow. So for women like us … one of the biggest FOOLHARDY AF things we can do .. is try to make our business flow respond to things we think should work, things that did work, things that are working for others, etc!

What we need instead is simple:

A clear freaking understanding of where today’s money is at. This week’s. This months. The long-terms. And how to do it all in a way where true wealth growth becomes automated and inherent to who you are. Where you can breathe fully in your creative needs each day. AND, where it’s ALL fun and yes whilst making a crazy impact on those you want to help!

In short?

You need to get FIRED UP AND FINANCIALLY READY TO EXPLODE with me.

And that’s what we’re gonna do here:
