Not all foods are produced equal, when it comes to weight loss, and on the other hand not all fruits and vegetables are either.

People tend to eat healthy and high starch vegetables like corn and peas to maintain their weight or lose some pounds. However, according to a team of Harvard scientists, a researched conducted by them proved a link between starchy vegetables and weight gain.

An increase in the consumption of non-starchy foods such as broccoli and cabbage might help in the loss of weight, on the other hand. The risk of too much weight gain will slowly go down, researchers said.

A study was conducted by researchers and they studied the diet habits and weight changes for over 133, 000 men and women for a period of 24 years. They found that there was a link between eating specific vegetable and more fruits to weight loss.

Scientists also found that the consumption of high fiber, low glycemic load foods such as cauliflower and kale is associated with higher weight loss than high glycemic load foods like the carrots.

The findings did not prove any cause-and-effect relationship, however, scientists are claiming that the study might provide valuable data for further food-related guidance for the prevention of cardiovascular diseases, cancers, obesity, primary risk factor for type 2 diabetes and many other health conditions.

A team of researchers, led by Monica Bertoia of the Harvard University School of Public Health and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, found that fruits such as berries exhibiting a low glycemic load are the most beneficial for keeping extra weight off.

Another study conducted by researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) showed that less than 15 percent of adults in the United States of America get enough supply of fruits on a daily basis and even fewer adults get their daily quota of vegetables – based on federal recommendations.
