Weight Loss - My Diet Stinks

Diet Vegetable That Sink, Side Effects While Dieting

Unfortunately, many of the foods from Mother Nature’s garden which are very low in caloric content often trigger dietary issues after they are eaten. 

Foul Breath

Some, such as onions and garlic contribute to foul breath.

Gastric Upset

Others may cause gastric upset within the body shortly after they’re eaten.  The diet are may experience a pain in the gut, bloating, burping, and pressure deep within the abdomen.

Digestive Issues Associated With Stinky Vegetables

The new dieter may experience more digestive issues than the individual who has always embraced a healthy diet which contains green things required by the body for optimum health.

Once the dieter's digestive system adjusts to the green things that create so much pressure and gas within the body, the digestive issues tend to calm down significantly.

Let's take a look at a few of these healthy, yet rather stinky green things.

Broccoli & Cabbage Are Both Very Low in Calories

It contains about 22 per cup with only a trace of dietary fat .  It also contains 2 grams of dietary fiber which can assist in quelling hunger longer which is important when the individual is on a restricted calorie weight loss plan.

Cabbage is another common food which is often on the meal plate of the dieter - and rightly so as it contains only 20 calories per serving.
