When choosing a low carb diet, it can be confusing deciding what vegetables to eat – by there very nature, vegetables are mostly carbs. The most common advice is to avoid starchy vegetables, such as potato.
Vegetables that are low in starch and also have a low glycemic load also contain phytochemicals, which have been shown to include fat burning properties.
Leafy green vegetables are a good choice. Listed below are some vegetables that are known to have fat burning potential:
- Brussel Sprouts
- Collard Greens
- Green Beans
- Red Peppers
Potato and parsnip should be avoided, but sweet potato is not as bad due to a lower glycemic load – but you’ll be better off sticking to the list above.
