Healthy and Tasty Ways to Lose Weight

Tasty ways to lose weight include homemade fruit yogurt, healthy cereal, drinking enough water, low fat milk, barbecued meat, rusk with tea as an office snack, and Whole Wheat Crackers with Peanut Butter

A filling pre-meal salad can help you cut down on what you eat for your main course. To avoid that ‘I’m just eating leaves’ feeling (if you’re a carbohydrates person, you’ll know what I’m talking about), throw in olive oil, pulses, or even some hummus to add that filling-feeling to your food. Eat this slowly with water.

The Sweet Dish

No one said the sweet dish must be an exercises in swallowing sugar and unhealthy goop. Replace your 2 servings of gulag jamun with some homemade fruit yogurt (add fruits to yogurt, obviously). Or low-fat Gelato ice cream.

Or even some ‘kawa’ herbal tea in the winter – it’ll fill you up, help you digest your food faster, and is tasty.

Cereal

Replace eating the hard-earned bread with cereal in the morning. However, avoid your standard sweetened pops (Choco-puffs, and other manner of crystallised fruit and sugar recipes). Get simple cereal, add milk and fruits, and no more than 2 spoons of sugar for tasting.

Water

Often what you perceive as hunger is simply thirst.

Further, before instinctively reaching for that juice or wine, have a glass of water – your cravings for something liquid might be for water.

Have a glass of water before eating – it’ll trick your stomach into feeling fuller.

Barbecue

Barbecue your Meat, fish and poultry instead of frying it – if you’re eating out, this is even more important as food is often re-fried – insist on the barbecued meat.

Secondly, barbecuing causes meat’s fat to drip off, offering you a healthier, yet more flavorful meal.

Low Fat Milk

It’s a stupid Indian myth that full cream milk is “real milk”. Low fat milk is made by removing the fat content (less saturated fat, cholesterol and less calories), without affecting any of the nutritional content that milk offers you.

Rusk with Tea

That hour before lunch when you’re thinking about lunch – get some tea with a rusk. Your cup of tea contains caffeine, a hunger- suppressant. The rusk or two act as a a low-calorie filling snack.

Whole Wheat Crackers with Peanut Butter

Peanut butter contains protein – which slows down the release of sugar into your bloodstream (unlike carbs, which quickly spike your energy levels before crashing them) – whole wheat crackers are a tasty filling and fiber-loaded snack to fill you up
