We often rely on various crash diets and fad diets in the name of losing weight. Sometimes the lure of quick results with minimal effort is too much to ignore. There are many weight loss tips that we bring to practice in order to slim down. These methods or diets may work at first, but will not continue to help us in longer run. If you want to avoid such a situation, start eating healthy food and in right combination. Eat foods that are rich in fibre, minerals, vitamins and low in fat and calories, and pair them with other foods that complement them. One of such foods is beetroot. The veggie has been hailed as a ‘superfood’ numerous times over the last few years, and for all the good reason. Beetroot is jam-packed with nutrients and vitamins, as well as plenty of disease-preventing properties.
Is Beetroot Juice Good For Weight Loss?
Beetroot juice is packed with healthy minerals and vitamins. The juice has a lot of fibre and helps keep us full for longer time. Therefore, it is an ideal juice for people who are trying to lose weight. Consumption of beetroot juice helps in reducing weight by providing a low number of calories; a 100 ml serving of beetroot juice contains only 35 calories.
