BE THE CHEF

As much as possible, spend time planning, preparing and cooking
your own meals. You値l have complete control over the ingredients,
you値l burn calories in the preparatory process and you池e far less likely
to overeat. There痴 nothing more metabolically diminishing then sitting in your car as you go through a fast food drive-through and then consuming food higher in calories and damaging compounds that you would make for yourself at home. Being in charge of your meals is also a great way to educate yourself about how foods affect the metabolism and how ingredient substitutions can have an enormous effect on your energy levels. For instance, just by substituting olive oil for margarine you値l be consuming a fat that is more preferentially used as energy and that contains lower levels of metabolism-slowing free radicals! Just by adding a teaspoon of cinnamon to your stir fry you値l control your body痴 blood sugar response to the more starchy vegetables. As the chef, you値l also be introduced to a variety of new fruits, vegetables and novel food items that keep your body guessing and your mind free from 電iet boredom.
