In addition to helping a person to feel full with few calories, vegetables also help promote weight loss by being rich in many powerful antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and phyotochemicals.
Some of these nutrients, such as catechins and anthocyanins, by themselves can help increase your body’s ability to burn fat.
But, antioxidants help to decrease oxidative stress in your body.
