What’s In Your Fridge?

Remember that eating won’t make you fat, any more than eating money will make you rich. Foods made with white flour such as  pasta, white bread, white rice, biscuit, cookies, cakes, bagels, doughnuts will make you overweight. Whether you want to lose weight or just maintain it avoid the white flour  because your body rapidly converts it into sugar, giving you a sugar high and then a low. If you like to eat pasta, make yours whole-wheat. Replace products that are made with white flour with those made with whole wheat (note that “wheat flour” is NOT whole grain – it has to say WHOLE wheat). Sweet potatoe is also a better choice then white potatoe.

Foods that help you lose weight are fruits, especially strawberries, huckleberries, raspberries, blackcurrant. Eating raw vegetable like carrots, celery, broccoli and cauliflower  will give you a feeling of fullness. Eat your meat baked or grilled, not fried and add more fish and chicken. White meat is a wonderful protein rich food. Use coconut oil instead of butter, olive oil, vegetable oil and margarine. Don’t forget to  drink plenty of water with a squeeze of lemon or lime for a better taste. Drinking lots of water burns fat and increases metabolism.
Say no to starches and turn “get fat” habit into a “slim-down” habit.
