Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Most people know that spinach is good for them. While you won’t gain muscles like Popeye the Sailor Man, you can reap a number of benefits from spinach. However, spinach can take you much farther than just adding a bit of nutrition to your diet. Studies have linked it to reducing the risk of cancer., but that’s now where the good news ends Spinach works for weight loss too!

Spinach for Weight Loss-Because It’s Packed Full of Nutrients Studies have shown that balanced nutrition is helpful in weight loss. Spinach contains many vitamins including C, several B vitamins, E, and K. It also contains a number of minerals that are important to your body such as mangenese, iron, and copper. While all of the nutrients in spinach can be found in a bottle of vitamins, studies have also shown that your body does a better job absorbing nutrients that you eat then those that are packaged into capsules or tablets. All these nutrients will also help keep you healthier.

Spinach for Weight Loss-Because It’s Packed Full of Fiber There are a lot of advantages to eating a lot of fiber. Fiber helps keep your digestive tract working like it should. Fiber also helps to make you feel full. When you feel full you will consume fewer calories. Spinach can be used for weight loss because it doesn’t have very many calories and the fiber will help you feel full longer and in turn eat less.

Spinach for Weight Loss-Because It Balances The Blood Sugar While nutrients and fiber are both good one more thing that spinach can do for your weight loss goals is that it balances your blood sugar. Your blood sugar controls the amount of insulin your body produces. When your blood sugar goes up, your insulin goes up, and then your blood sugar goes down. When your blood sugar goes down and your insulin levels are still high you then start craving sugars. This makes it hard for you to not eat sugars. However, spinach helps to balance out the blood sugar and that helps you avoid cravings.

Spinach for weight loss is a great option. There are a number of different reasons why spinach is a great choice and if you learn to add it to your diet in a wide range of ways then you are likely to learn to enjoy it as well. Spinach has the nutrients your body needs, the fiber that will fill you up, and it balances your blood sugar.
