An All-Salad Diet to Lose Weight Fast

Even if you love eating meat, don't let that be a reason to avoid picking up a fork full of leafy greens. In fact, incorporating salad into your diet is one of the best things you can do for your health. Eating a great big bowl of lettuce, fruit and other veggies for lunch or dinner will make you feel 100 times better than you do after binging on protein or carbohydrates. A salad contains more nutrients, which your body can digest swiftly, along with dietary fiber. Lose weight by eating an all-salad diet.

Buy or Collect Your Salad's Vegetables

    To start your all-salad diet, either visit the grocery store or your garden to collect your favorite vegetables, fruit and nuts. Steer clear from eggs and cheese, which may add on even more pounds while you're trying to lose them. Add peppers, tomatoes, celery, carrots, spinach, onions, avocados, fruits such as mandarin oranges or blackberries, or whatever you like. Throw in a few walnuts or almonds---just remember to stretch them out, as they have large amounts of protein and some fat (although it's the good kind), which can also pack on the pounds.

Avoid Temptation

    If you do not want to eat salad for breakfast and do not have time to prepare it for a snack, eat a piece of fruit or some nuts. Carry an orange, banana or apples with you to avoid the temptation to stop at a fast-food restaurant. Although an orange clearly doesn't constitute a salad, it is an ingredient.

Convert Others

    Get other people you live with to participate in your all-salad diet, even if they only do it for a week or two. (Try it for two weeks or a month yourself, depending on how much you love leafy greens. As long as you get enough nutrients and include enough vegetables, you will reap the benefits.) When other people in your household eat well, you will find it easier to keep up with your own routine. Sometimes, just giving them a bite of your salad can convert them.
