NSVs on My Diet Plan
If you see NSV with a number behind it on your diet and don't really understand what the number means, this will explain it.
What’s that NSV with a number behind it?
NSVs are non-starchy veggies such as broccoli, asparagus, cauliflower, green beans, etc.
• Are low in calories
• Burn fat
• Don't affect your insulin
So, they are safe to eat any time and in any amount. The number behind NSV is just a number for those who count everything. If you add up all the numbers in the carb column they will total or ballpark the total carbs.
You can put NSVs with any meal and in any amount. They are great fillers and can help curb your appetite.
Raw carrots are NSVs. When you cook carrots, you cook the fiber out and then it becomes a starch!
