Contemplating weight loss methods may be daunting if you are at a loss about how to proceed. The intent of this article is to help you devise a workable strategy. Successful dieting requires having the correct information, and being able to apply it to achieve your goals. The advice presented here can get you off to a good start and quickly send you on your way to achieving your weight-loss goals.
A good way to help you lose weight is to monitor and keep track of how many calories you consume each day. If you find additional ways to limit your fat intake, go for it. You can also try and substitute fattier foods for something that has less calories and is less fattening.
Chunky soups are a great way to stay true to your diet program. Drinking calories is not a good idea. For example, soups that contain beans can help you feel full faster rather than watered down soups.
Cauliflower makes a great substitute for those who love potatoes. Steam cauliflower florets with a small amount of water in a covered sauce pan, and puree it once it is tender with vegetable or poultry broth. You will have a delicious side dish for dinners with all the nutritional power of the mighty cole family (the one that includes broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts) with a tiny fraction of the carbs.
Does anyone not like french fries? They can be a problem for anyone trying to lose weight. Baking french fries will make quite a difference when you are aiming to lose weight. Cut potatoes into 1/2″ fries, toss in a large bowl with 1 tbsp. of oil, sprinkle with salt, pepper and a bit of rosemary if you like, and bake in a single layer at 400 degrees for 30 min. Use a spatula to turn it and then continue baking for ten more minutes. They taste great dipped in ketchup and have far fewer calories than the deep fried variety. Thanks to Laurel’s Kitchen cookbook for these “French Bakes”!
A great suggestion to aid in your weight loss is to drink small protein shakes when you begin to feel hungry. Using a small amount of protein powder combined with ice can make a real dent in hunger that would normally prompt overeating.
Armed with these ideas for successful weight loss, hopefully you will also lose any stress you may have felt about the subject. All that is left is to start applying the strategies you just learned. And if you are motivated enough to work on getting in shape, you should see results very quickly.
