Like a Gastric Band for Weight Loss

Vegetables or a gastric band?

Yes, you did read correctly!

Do you know how a gastric band works? It reduces the stomach's volume radically. As soon as the stomach is full, everything makes you feel nauseous and you lose weight as your stomach is smaller and has less space for incoming food. Well, vegetables have the same effect. A stomach of a good size rarely contains more than 4 pounds of food with a hearty eater. If you eat a couple pounds of vegetables - 2 zucchinis + 2 tomatoes + 1 cucumber - you'll have filled up half of your stomach which is exactly what a gastric band manages to do. Don't think twice--buy some vegetables!
