Eat This, Not That An Easy Way to Lose Weight
Eat This Not That An Easy Way to Lose Weight?
An easy way to lose weight is to start with some simple substitutions in your every day food choices. In fact, there’s a series of “Eat This Not That” books on the subject!
Here are a few to get you started:
Avoid: Sugary drinks or drinks with high fructose corn syrup. Drinking empty calories is one of the easiest ways to gain unwanted weight.
Substitute: Water. Substituting water for just ONE sugary soda a day could amount to a 20 pound weight loss over a year!
Avoid: Meats high in fat such as well marbled beef or fried chicken or fish.
Substitute: Lean meats like skinless chicken, lean ground turkey (not all ground turkey is low in fat), and steamed or grilled fish.
Avoid: Fruit flavored yogurt. Many contain high fructose corn syrup and/or sugar.
Substitute: Greek yogurt and low fat cottage cheese. Eat them plain or add your own fresh fruit
Avoid: Sugary cereals. Check the label to make sure your cereal does not contain sugar or high fructose corn syrup.
Substitute: Whole grain oatmeal or steel cut oats. Steel cut oats with blueberries is one of my very favorite breakfasts and it keep me feeling full for hours.
Avoid: Crackers and chips. I know, they’re my favorites too but the calories in these snack foods add up pretty darn fast.
Substitute: Nuts! Nuts like almonds and seeds like sunflower seeds are packed with protein and make a perfect, healthy snack. Just watch your portions because they are also high in calories. A handful is all it takes to satisfy mid day hunger.
Avoid: Packaged sweets like cookies and candy.
Substitute: Dried fruit. Just check the label to be sure that there is no added sugar.
There are several versions of the Eat This Not That no diet, diet books available through Amazon. They include “Cook This Not That”, “Grill This Not That” and even an eat this not that “Supermarket Survival Guide”.
You really can lose 10, 20 pounds, or even more, just by making simple substitutions to the foods you eat every day!
