Keep the Weight Off With These Practical Tips

By | Smart Strategy | No Comments

For many, losing weight or maintaining the desired weight can be challenging, especially when the diets they subscribe to do not work in the long run. I am a believer in finding a weight loss strategy that works best for you, according to your unique weight loss history. And knowing the basics is a good place to start.

  1. Drink water (or calorie-free beverages): Hungry? Drink a glass of water first. Many people easily confuse thirst with hunger. If you tear into a bag of potato chips right away, you risk ending up with extra calories when all you really need is a glass of water. If water does not work, try flavored sparkling water or fruit-infused herbal tea.
  1. Think before snacking: You have to be choosy about what you snack on, especially at night when you decide to park yourself in front of the television after a long day at work. A lot of people easily fall into mindless snacking. Find a low-calorie snack if you can’t help it, or better yet, call it a day and give yourself a much-needed sleep.
  1. Don’t skip on protein: Protein helps fill you up and for a longer time too! Incorporate healthy protein into your diet like seafood, lean meat, egg whites, yogurt, cheese, soy, nuts, or beans.
  1. Shop (and stock) healthy: The food you have around the house could either make or break your weight loss goals. Be sure to shop healthy. Find healthier, low-calorie alternatives. And rid your pantry with foods that you have the tendency to abuse.

The above are just some of the many practical tips to help you in your weight loss journey. Losing weight is a commitment, a lifestyle change. The changes may be difficult for the first few days or weeks, but once you get used to the rhythm and you see the results, you will never look at weight loss the same way again.

Substitute, Don’t Eliminate

By | Recipes | No Comments

Many dieters fall into the trap of not eating anything to lose weight. What many forget is the fact that our body needs to be fed; it needs to have enough nourishment in order for it to function well. Many also believe they can achieve their weight loss goals through willpower and portion control. Willpower or portion control, however, isn’t enough. This technique even poses the danger of “overconsumption.” That is why I have been a strong advocate of food substitution. The key is to find healthier, better substitutes for the foods that we have a tendency to abuse.

Below are some good food substitutes to help guide you.

Avocado instead of mayonnaise: If you’re looking for something creamy to spread on a sandwich, avocado is a good substitute for you. Per tablespoon, avocado contains half the fat of low-fat mayonnaise and half the calories. It’s a healthy source of fiber, folate, niacin, and vitamins B6 and K, too!

Oatmeal instead of granola: Half-cooked serving of Quaker Steel Cut Oats contains only 150 calories, 2.5 grams of fat, and 1 gram of sugar. Compare that to a half-cup serving of Quaker’s Apple, Cranberry, and Almond Granola which contains 200 calories, 5 grams of fat, and 13 grams of sugar.

Cafe Americano instead of latte: Coffee is a great source of antioxidants, especially when consumed straight. If black coffee is not your thing, you can add a little low-fat milk, honey, or cinnamon. You still save hundreds of calories over a latte.

Spaghetti squash instead of white pasta: Trust me, it’s still as delicious! Spaghetti squash is a good low-calorie, high-fiber replacement. It helps you save around 200 calories. Plus it’s a generous source of vitamin C, folate, and magnesium.

Kale chips instead of potato chips: For just 84 calories, you get a cup and a half of kale chips, whereas the same amount of potato chips can cause you 200 calories. Kale is also a good source of vitamins A and C, calcium, and folate.

The above are just some of the many healthier food substitutes available. Be creative. Try healthier recipes. Don’t be afraid to let go of the unhealthy habits you’re in.

Green Beans with Sauteed Mushrooms

Serves 4

Mushrooms and green beans are a classic mix that goes well with almost any meal. For added crunch, sprinkle in some slivered almonds.

¾ pound green beans
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 small garlic cloves, chopped
2 teaspoons chopped fresh basil
¼ teaspoon salt
Dash of Tabasco (optional)
1 cup sliced mushrooms
Dry white vermouth (optional)

1. Trim the ends off the beans and place in a steamer over about an inch of water. Cover and cook for 10 to 15 minutes, or until bright green and tender.

2. Heat the oil in a saucepan. Sauté the garlic, basil, salt, and Tabasco, if using, for a minute or two. Add the mushrooms and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, for 4 to 5 minutes, or until the mushrooms just begin to release their liquid. (If the mushrooms stick to the pan, you can add a dash of vermouth.)

3. Add the beans and mix well.

Poached Apples and Pears with Berry Sauce

Serves 4

This recipe is a nice way of making your daily fruit serving into an elegant and delicious dessert. It will also work without the berries during times of the year when berries are not in season.

4 cups apple or apple-raspberry juice

1 cup finely chopped strawberries or raspberries

2 lemon slices

1 1-inch cinnamon stick

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

2 whole golden or red Delicious apples, peeled

2 whole Bosc pears, peeled

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the apple juice, berries, lemon slices, cinnamon stick, and vanilla extract. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce to a simmer. Add the apples and pears, cover, and cook 12 minutes. The fruit is done when a fork slides easily into the flesh. Remove the fruit with a slotted spoon and set aside in a covered dish to keep warm, or bring to room temperature and chill.
  2. Continue cooking the juice and berries until the liquid is reduced to a thick sauce, about 25 minutes. Divide the fruit among 4 plates and drizzle the sauce over each serving.

Low-Fat Tomato Sauce

By | Recipes | No Comments

This tomato sauce isn’t just for pasta. Try it over fish, chicken cutlets, or even lightly sautéed vegetables. For a slightly heartier sauce, add some chopped green or red peppers and some sliced mushrooms along with the spices.

1 tablespoon olive oil
½ teaspoon dried thyme
1 small onion, finely diced
Dry white vermouth or red wine (optional)
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 whole bay leaf
1 28-ounce can whole tomatoes in juice
2 teaspoons dried basil
1 teaspoon chopped parsley
Salt and pepper, to taste

  1. Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over low heat. Swirl it around so the bottom is coated with oil and then wipe up the excess with a paper towel. Add the onion and cook over medium heat until golden, about 5 minutes.

  2. Add the garlic and cook 2 minutes.

  3. Add the bay leaf, basil, parsley, and thyme. Cook 2 minutes. If the herbs are sticking to the pan, you can add just a splash of dry white vermouth or red wine.

  4. Add the tomatoes and their juice. As they simmer, break the tomatoes into pieces with a spoon. Add the salt and pepper. Reduce the heat to low and let simmer partially covered for 20 minutes. Remove the bay leaf, taste, and adjust the seasoning as desired.
