Eating Vegetables and Weight Management
Eating vegetables in place of other higher calorie foods can be helpful for weight management. Yet, according to the 2010 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee Report, approximately 75 – 95 percent of Americans, depending on age and gender, fail to meet their recommended number of servings per day.1
At Campbell Soup Company, we collaborate with some of the nation’s leading academic institutions to conduct scientific research on the role our products play in a healthy diet. In a study from Baylor College of Medicine, overweight individuals with metabolic syndrome who drank one to two servings of V8® Low Sodium 100% Vegetable juice as part of a balanced, calorie-controlled Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet lost more weight compared to non juice drinkers. Over the 12-week study period, the juice drinkers lost an average of four pounds compared to the non juice drinkers who lost one pound.2
