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
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.
