The benefits of each food
Avocado: it is a nutritious food very rich in mineral salts (magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, etc.) and vitamins (A, B, C and E). Avocado contains healthy fats such as: oleic acid, unsaturated and monounsaturated fatty acids which accelerate the metabolism after meals, limiting weight gain and resulting in less fat accumulation. This food is very rich in dietary fiber, which very quickly brings a feeling of satiety.
The tomato: it is very low in calories but very rich in vitamins. Tomato contains vitamin B8 also known as biotin, which increases energy, accelerates metabolism and helps in the synthesis of fatty acids and amino acids. Tomato juice can be used as a detox cure for losing weight and losing belly or thighs. You can combine it in juices with both fruits and vegetables.
Cucumber: its high water content makes it a detoxifying and refreshing food despite having a very low caloric value, which can be an advantage for people on weight loss diets. This vegetable is a good source of fiber, vitamins and minerals. Dietary fiber is great for promoting feelings of fullness and reducing the urge to snack, which helps with weight loss. Cucumber can also be used as a natural remedy for chronic constipation.
Onion: Onion helps prevent the installation of unwanted fats and fights water retention. It is a long-lasting slimming ally.
You can add other vegetables to your salads which have a slimming effect. Asparagus, green beans, carrots, garlic, broccoli and green salad are great for a flat stomach. These foods, which must be consumed regularly, are low in calories and have a strong satiety effect.
