3. Pumpkin for Appetite Control
While a foamy pumpkin spiced latte or a warm baked pumpkin and cream cheese muffin may not equate to weight loss, pumpkin (the veggie) on it’s own offers a high-fiber key to controlling your appetite and your weight.
Looking at the nutritional data on pumpkin, you can see that a cup mashed contains a mere 50-calories and zero fats. However, that one cup of pumpkin contains 3-grams of fiber, and fiber fills you up longer after meals so you’re not skipping out for a slice of pumpkin cheesecake at midnight.
