OMG! These 5 vegetables can hamper your weight-loss efforts


A new research revealed that an increased intake of fruits and vegetables was found to be inversely associated with weight gain.

Increased consumption of fruits and non-starchy vegetables is inversely associated with weight gain, says a study.

Vegetables that are considered starchy and should be avoided are – corn, peas, potatoes, pumpkin and yams.

“Our findings support benefits of increased fruit and vegetable consumption for preventing long-term weight gain and provide further food-specific guidance for the prevention of obesity, a primary risk factor for type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, cancers, and many other health conditions,” the study said.
