On those days when you choose pizza (for whatever reason), choose thin crust and vegetable toppings only. This can save up to 150 calories a slice! Two pieces with a salad and water is a 500 calorie dinner that feels like a huge cheat, but can be part of a healthy day.
Water Chestnuts are fat free and have No cholesterol
Water Chestnuts are crisp and low in calories but are a great source of fiber to lower cholesterol. Add to salads, into a tuna salad or chicken salad, fruit salad or quarter into Brown Rice with chopped onions to reduce fat content of meals. They are free of any cholesterol and are almost fat-free and contain potassium. Make a stir-fry with them. 1/2 cup of water chestnuts contains only 0.1 g fat.
