When you are trying to watch your waistline, the trick is to eat a lot of green vegetables.

Fiber helps in digestion, removing excess wastes from your body. Studies have shown that fiber also increases your metabolism, helping your body burn fat faster and more efficiently.

Eating plenty of green vegetables makes you feel fit and light because they contain vitamins and minerals that keep your body slim and healthy. The vitamins and minerals found in green vegetables are great for your skin too, so not only will you be trim but your appearance will improve as well.
Another positive result of eating green vegetables that are high in fiber is that it has been shown to increase your chances for lowering your cholesterol as well as guarding you from developing heart disease.
