The final component of the PASV Model is V.
Perhaps you guessed it? What was that? Did you say vegetables…?
Hey guys, Day 4 of the PASV Model and I’m here to talk about the V in PASV. V stands for vegetables.
Now when you were growing up maybe it was your grandparents, maybe it was your parents, maybe you weren’t allowed to leave the table until you had eaten them all but I guarantee they probably told you you needed to eat your vegetables, and I hate to say it, but they were absolutely right.
Vegetables are one of the sure-fire ways to increase your weight loss and help with your sports performance.
There are two key reasons for this.
The first one mostly related to weight loss is that vegetables fill you up, so when you’re putting together a meal by including some vegetables they will act as a good filler.
Therefore you won’t need to eat as many carbohydrates, fats or even proteins than you might without them.
And the second reason which is probably the most fundamental, is that vegetables contain a whole host of micronutrients, which are the vitamins and minerals that your body needs to operate properly.
There are hundreds if not thousands of metabolic functions or metabolic processes that are going on in your body at any one point in time and they need micronutrients to run smoothly.
So by eating vegetables you are actually doing yourself a favour and you are helping yourself be more healthy and for your body to function better.
So those are the two reasons why eating your vegetables is super good.
I should point out two things, the first is that eating vegetables in their natural form, so not in pills, is a better way to consume them. So you can save a bit of money on dietary supplements if you are having a diet that is full of vegetables.
And the other thing is when I’m talking about vegetables, I’m not talking about starchy vegetables. I’m not talking about potatoes, kumeras, your carrots. I’m talking about green leafy vegetables, broccoli which is my favourite, anything green is good.
So make sure you’re getting plenty of those on board.
For my clients I recommend that you try and eat vegetables at every meal. Be that potentially some spinach with your bacon and eggs in the morning or a green smoothie if you can fit it in. Some vegetables with lunch and a big ‘ol plate of vegetables with dinner as well.
So that rounds out the PASV Model – V for Vegetables – hopefully you have also seen the P for Protein, A for Aqua and S for Sleep videos.
