Amazing Benefits of Lettuce For Losing Weigt (Diet)

Health Benefits of Lettuce For Losing Weigt (Diet) :

Whole live food: Lettuce is almost always eaten raw, which has many micronutrients not found in cooked or processed food.  Eating raw food also adds vital energies not isolated or recognized by nutritional science.
 The large food corporations have not found a way to package lettuce long term or stuck it in cans or boxes. Let’s hope they never do! In fact, lettuce is one of the few foods, which can be found organic and prewashed already in bins for you to eat immediately.

It is high in fiber and cellulose: This fiber also helps remove bile salts from the body. When the body replaces these salts it breaks down cholesterol to do so.  This is why lettuce is also good for your heart.

Complete protein: Romaine lettuce has 20 % of its calories in protein. Like all whole foods, much of this protein is complete but combining with balancing proteins can increase that amount.

Omega-3 Fatty acids: Romaine lettuce has a 2/1 ratio of omega-3 to omega-6.  That’s a great ratio. The fat content in lettuce is not significant unless you eat a lot but we actually suggest you do.

Lettuce tastes great: Even though lettuce has very low calories, many varieties still have a sweet taste. To get maximum benefit from your food you should really want to eat it with your whole body not just your mind saying it is good for you. If you like the bitter taste you can find that too.

Helps with insomnia: the white fluid that you see when you break or cut lettuce leaves is called lactucarium. This has relaxing and sleep inducing properties similar to opium but without the strong side effects. Simply eat a few leaves or drink some lettuce juice.

Lettuce is alkaline forming: The minerals in lettuce help to remove toxins and keep your acid/alkaline balance in order.  Once you are balanced on this level there are a host of benefits including greater energy, clearer thinking, deep restful sleep, and youthful skin.

Low glycemic index: Lettuce has an average glycemic index of 15 but because it has so few calories, its glycemic load is considered zero. For anyone watching his or her blood sugars for medical reasons this is great.  Low glycemic index also is great of weight management.

Healthy heart: Lettuce’s vitamin C and beta-carotene work together to prevent the oxidation of cholesterol.  This prevents the build up of plaque.
