Food? Yes Food!
High volume high quality low fat food! Let's eat until our hearts content and lose weight!!
You heard me I said eat and really eat and lose lose lose!
Ok Call me big hearted, Condsiderate, just plain ole' "nice guy" but I now have a high volume, high quality, low fat, balanced, perfectly healthy versatile inexpensive way to eat that works with my body that is going to get me healthy and keep me lean! And here I am sharing it with you!
Here's the Susan Angle! (and mine too)
Let's start with WHOLE GRAINS
So we want high volume, high quality, low fat food (can't say that enough)we're interested in we start with whole grains!
Constipation? Eat 10 cups of brown rice and see what happens NO Not all at once LOL but you can definitely throw out the ex-lax!
Whole grains are the greatest source of complex carbs, filling--and did I say versatile? Cook them up, put them in the fridge, rush home after work and warm up some sauce, throw in the rice; instant dinner!
If you want protein without the saturated fat(of course we do!) EAT BEANS. Beans, beans, good for the heart, the more you eat themore you...I know, gas! LOL Soak 'em don't worry about the gas--your body will figure it out in time. Our bodies are adjustable to change.
And you can absolutley eat enough protein and build strong bones and muscles without the saturated fat! Just eat a vegetable, a legume with a whole grain together in a day and you'll have had enough protein for the day without the fat, hormones, feces and other junk tha comes with eating a meat. So don't worry about not getting enough protein inyour diet. Meat is not the only source! Just begin to include these fabulous foods in your daily diet for higher quality calories, lower fat,....and lots of gas LOL
We all know veggies. Way back in the first diet days right? These were THE things we were told to eat and carry with you to satisfy our hunger. yeah... the bag of celery and carrot sticks does a lot of good when we've been running around all day expending energy! We're going to be RAVENOUS!
THen there's the midday salad option the only option we were given. Oh boy wasn't that satisfying!
Yes veggies are good and good for snacking but a bowl of veggies does not a complete meal make!
Include veggies in your rice, in your pasta salad, on a sandwich as a side dish; steam 'em broil 'em bake 'em blend 'em! Do whatever youlike to them but the midday salad as a meal is OUTTA HERE!
Eat some once in awhile or as often as you like but whatever you do do not expect it to last as an energy source for more than a couple of hours. Sugar is quick to burn off and an apple by itself is not the most filling thing. But include fruit with your oatmeal, cereal or with whatever you chose to have for breakfast and you'll be better for it.
