What we are after here are the Omega-3 fatty acids in oily fish that are widely considered to be the best “good” fat. Tuna, salmon, halibut, as well as walnuts and flaxseeds are great sources of this super fat and can all help reduce your bad cholesterol. It is recommended that you get 1.5 to 3 grams of omega-3 per day for best results. If these foods don’t please your palate, try an Omega-3 supplement.
Regular meals is important if you really want to lose weight and it is best not to miss breakfast. Breakfast is considered the most important meal of the day. You cannot start the day right without eating breakfast. Your body needs enough energy to perform well. Most dietitians recommend that you eat a healthy breakfast, average-sized lunch and a light dinner. This is an effective diet plan that you have to follow if you really want to reduce weight.
In order to promote healthy digestion, you should definitely make sure that you have plenty of fiber in your diet. Eating fiber helps push everything through without certain things blocking you or getting you backed up. You don’t want to experience indigestion, acid reflux, heartburn and other conditions when you’re trying to exercise and lose weight.
And don’t be afraid to ask and if they give you an answer that you are not content with, simply just don’t order that meal. If you have committed yourself to eating healthy do not let any stand in your way.
This is a nice alternative to the traditional breakfast of a bowl of cereal for more than one reason. I find myself that I always tend to let my milk spoil when i buy it. I just don’t use it fast enough to beat the expiration date. I also tend never to have time to wash dishes, and hate to continuously waste paper bowls and plastic spoons. Finally, my cereal finds a way of getting stale before I can finish a box. So, the milk and cereal bars are a way to avoid all of these problems!
Self-help pointer: Don’t drink soda pops, even died sodas, because it could detract from weight loss. You’ll have a tendency to feel much less satisfied by using that kind of beverage with meals, so you’ll probably eat more; rather than less.
Traditional Thanksgiving food items weren’t all created equal – nutritionally that is. Roasted white turkey meat (without skin) is a great source of lean protein. Vegetable dishes (without added fats) are also very healthy. On the other hand, buttery mashed potatoes, white bread rolls, cream based dishes, and heavy gravy are all packed with fat and calories. Fill your stomach with the healthy items first – white turkey meat and plenty of vegetables. Then simply ‘sample’ the less healthy items in small portions. This is so easy to do, save you lots of extra calories, and you don’t have to feel like you are denying yourself, either.
