Eat All the Low-Glycemic Vegetables You Want
On this plan, you can eat all the low-glycemic veggies you want. Not only will they help you stay full, but they are key to helping burn fat. When you swap out starchy and sugary foods for low-glycemic vegetables, your body can burn through its glycogen storage and eventually start burning fat.
