We’ve all heard the 80/20 rule when it comes to weight loss:
80% diet / 20% exercise
Unfortunately, merely knowing this information isn’t going to make the weight melt off… Sigh!
Understanding which foods are nutritious, healthy and beneficial to aid weight loss and implementing them into your diet are critical to your success.
At Hillview Farms we grow our own produce. What we don’t grow, we source from select family farmers around the state who share our values for superior quality food and sustainable farming. You can always be sure that the produce you receive from us is of the best quality, synthetic chemical free and comes direct from farm to table.
A fresh food diet is not only going to boost your weightloss success but also increase your chances of starving off viruses this cold and flu season!
What should I eat to boost weight loss and starve off viruses?
- Leafy Greens – Most of us have developed a dislike for greens after being told to eat them our whole life. Who knew there was a good reason behind the nagging? Leafy greens are packed with Vitamin C, which is not only beneficial for weight loss but also protects you from getting sick! Get your intake with veggies like Kale, Spinach and Silverbeet.
- Oranges– Oranges are a great source of fibre which helps keep you satiated for longer! A great pick-me-up snack, oranges are also great to curb a sweet craving with their natural source of sugar. Like leafy greens, oranges are a great source of Vitamin C to help sugars which help maintain a strong and healthy immune function.
- Sweet Potatoes – It’s a common misconception that carbs are the enemy when it comes to weight loss. As a result, sweet potatoes are often overlooked. The carbs in sweet potatoes combined with their great source of Vitamin A and fibre combine to make a nutritious, filling and delicious food to incorporate into your diet.
These fresh foods have been proven to be effective at boosting your immunity and aiding in weight loss! Together with a balanced diet, you’ll be well on your way to smashing your health and fitness goals!
