A lot of people think exercising is the way to loose weight and get in shape, but the key is eating a balanced meal. Friday, marked the end of week two for United Hospital Center's 10 in 10, losing 10 pounds in 10 weeks.

This weeks focus was on the importance of vegetables and understanding the positive and negatives of each types. Most of you probably think as long as you have vegetables on your plate you're in good shape, but that's not the case. They're good to have in moderation because they're still good for you, just try to think of them as a fiber or grain instead.

The other issue a local dietitian told 5 News is to not just eat one or two types of vegetables. It's great to eat carrots or broccoli, but you don't want to only stick to those. Expand your pallet and try squash or spinach as well.

"We're always told to eat the rainbow. Every color does provide different vitamins and different minerals. It's important that you try and increase the variety and if you don't increase the variety you're probably going to get bored really quickly," said Helenia Sedoski, Registered Dietitian.
