To enhance your efforts at weight loss, make an effort to sneak vegetables into your "normal" foods. This is easily done by adding grated vegetables such as zucchini, carrots, onions, or peppers into meatloaf, spaghetti sauce, or soups. Don't have time to grate and chop? Frozen vegetables will be your ally here; they can be easily added to a marinara sauce or pot of chili to amp up the flavor, fiber, and nutrients - and no one need be the wiser. Making specific goals is important when trying to lose weight. Write down your weight loss goal and keep it someplace safe. This helps you define exactly what you want to achieve and allows you to take the necessary steps to reach your goal. Review your goal periodically to check your progress.
