Eat your way to healthy weight lossSeptember 11, 2013 17:11
Losing weight is a time taking process, usually spread over minimum 3 months. With busy lifestyles and cluttered minds, maintaining a healthy diet is not an easy habit to inculcate. To lose weight the fast-track way without losing your precious health, here are some light but nutritious foods you can try.
For breakfast, sticking to egg whites, corn flakes with milk and brown bread are good options to ease up the calories. If these don't last until lunch time, having a fruit salad takes care of the cravings. Fruit salads are not only filling, they provide the much needed antioxidants with minimal calorie burden.
In between snacks, be it morning or noon, try having green tea with honey or black coffee. Both beverages are extremely friendly to your health, contributing to increased metabolism and subsequent weight loss.
During meal time, one can include brown rice instead of white rice as part of the diet. It takes a little getting used to, but is very helpful within weeks. The rice takes more energy to digest as it is a complex carbohydrate, therefore reducing calories further. Probiotic curd aids digestion and keeps the digestive system healthy.
Carrying a box of boiled channa or Marie biscuits to work keep your cravings within boundaries. Every time you feel the urge to munch on something while working, these foods are the way to go. In addition to these, foods such as chillies, garlic, curry leaves, turmeric, moong dal, mustard oil and butter milk encourage fat burning.
Armed with these magic tricks, losing weight is not as hard as it seems.
