The key to eating as your thin friends or in a healthy way, is to make better choices. Also they would love to eat cookies and ice, but instead they “choose” other items each time
Choose fresh fruit instead of dried. It has generally less calories, carbohydrates and sugar, and you will not eat as much because it will fill you up faster.
Choose fried or baked chicken / turkey instead of breaded / fried. This applies when selecting a sandwich at the local sandwich shop, or order in a restaurant. Order grilled chicken salad instead of the breaded chicken sandwich parmesian.
Choose a fruit smoothie with whey protein powder instead of a milkshake or soda after a workout.
Create homemade brewed green tea instead of buying bottled water tea which is rich in sugar and carbohydrates. Add a squeeze of lemon or lime for flavor and honey for sweetener.
Avoid sauces, sauces, cheese, dressings and other toppings. Yes, they add flavor, but it’s not worth the calories, fat and sodium. Learn to love eating things plain and trying to taste the real flavor of the food.
Choose steamed vegetables as a side dish, and request that butter and salt become flabby. Ask for a salad instead of starch offering on the menu (usually potatoes).
Make your own snack mix with nuts and healthy granola cereal and a few chocolate chips. Carry this with you for sudden cravings.
Select hummus dip instead Ranch dip. It takes 30 minutes to walk to burn off 120 calories in 2 tablespoons of Ranch dip!
