Stop Eating Monster Salads
Contrary to popular belief, having a huge salad is not going to facilitate weight loss any faster than anything else. In fact, too many veggies without the benefit of an equal or greater amount of animal-based protein will actually inhibit your body from processing your food efficiently.
To get the full benefit from your salad, start by reducing the portion by at least half and pairing it equally with meat. Eat your proteins first if at all possible, but the simple act of eating your meat and vegetables together will also help streamline the metabolizing of all those nutrients. Whatever you do, don’t load up on salad before your main course. When you dine out, ask that all your food be brought at the same time, salad and entree.
