I NEVER liked veggies. I learned that they like me. Eating more vegetables made me FEEL better - the weight loss was just icing on the cake. Veggies fill you up, give your body what it needs, fiber, vitamins. Eating less processed foods makes you feel lighter, less sluggish.
Eat veggies or fruit with every meal. Make vegetables the bulk of your diet, you get more volume wise while consuming less calories. Try new veggies, experiment with new recipes (right here on Sparks). It's win-win cycle, eat better feel better and you'll let go of the junk food that wears you down.

Eating processed foods increases the load of toxins that your liver has to process. You can help your liver by lessing the impact of detoxification by omiting processed foods...up your fiber, eat lean meats, no white foods, no bleached or baked goods, drink lots of water and eat raw veggies and take vitamins!
I have made a pact with myself that I will eat mostly whole type foods. It's great b/c they tend to be more filling and lower in calories. It took me some time to get used to not having processed food and junk, but now I crave fruits, veggies, whole grains, and lean meats. I do indulge in some processed foods, but I try to make them healthier things like tofu and lighter cheeses.
