Healthy way to lose weight-vegetable diet
Many people don’t like eating vegetables, especially those with leaves. When I was little, eating Bok Choy or Chinese cabbage is like taking medicine. At the time, I was told repeatedly that they are good for me. Still I tried to avoid eating them whenever I can. Now, many years later, I no longer need to be forced to consume my daily intake of vegetables. Not because they get tastier. If you don’t improve your cooking skills they will always taste the same. Personally, it is the nutrition factor that draws me in, and ever since I went on the vegetable diet, I loss over 15 lbs. and stay slim to this day.
It’s a common knowledge that vegetables are good for you. Among them, the green vegetables carry very high ANDI score. Take Mustard Green for an example. It has the highest score of 1000, while Cabbage scores a decent 481. Soda, however, a common drink only scores a 1.
So what is ANDI score?
ANDI stands for “Aggregate Nutrient Density Index”. An ANDI score shows the nutrient density of a food on scale from 1 to 1000 based on nutrient content. ANDI scores are calculated by evaluating a range of micronutrients including vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals and antioxidant capacities, the higher the concentration of these elements in a food per calorie, the higher the score.
The following is a table for top 10 Green Vegetables.
