Grilling for Weight Loss, a Wise Move

If you're seeking to lose those unwanted love handles that you just don't love anymore, try dragging out that trusty old grill and dusting it off.

Grilling is one of the best methods for cooking all types of meat proteins because the fat contained therein cooks out quite well amid the process.

And let's face it - it's quite a fun and relaxing activity as well as a great way to get outdoors, take in some sunshine and healthy Vitamin D - and to get in touch with Mother Nature.

After all, when civilization began, the first men who walked the earth didn't reside in air-conditioned dwellings - and they certainly didn't have a stove or refrigerator.

When it was time to prepare the meal, they used the open fire pit.

Therefore, using this cooking method also allows us to reconnect with our primitive side.

Just don't go hitting your better half on the head with a club or try dragging them across the lawn by the hair of the head.

If this should happen, you've perhaps carried your outdoor adventure just a tab too far....entering The Outer Limits; but of course - that's entirely another adventure.

Red Meat, Let's Eat!

If beef or other red meat is on the menu, then choose your selections wisely by avoiding fattier cuts as well as those that contain marbling - just another fancy word in the health world for 'rings of fat'.

As to the fast food grilled taco serving at 'The Bell', it's quite a good choice for 250 skinny calories and less than 15 dietary fat grams. Sodium is higher than we'd like in this beef selection, but certainly within the healthier realm where fast food is concerned.

Low Calorie Homemade Steak Taco Recipe

You can prepare your own version at home quite easily. You'll need the following ingredients:

1 flour tortilla shell
1/2 cup of the following mix of sliced vegetables: onion, bell pepper, jalapeno (optional)
Lean beef cut into matchstick size
1 packet of your favorite Taco seasoning

You'll only need just a spoon of the seasoning mix if you're only going to be preparing one taco. Also, get out your favorite salsa if you wish to add more heat to your recipe.

You can use any method to prepare the beef - from outdoors over an open campfire to indoors on the stove top. Use zero caloric cooking spray to cook the vegetables in; when the onion starts to clarify then add the meat. Cook until thoroughly done.

Heat the tortilla and add the meat mixture. Fold and enjoy with a side of steamed Mexican rice and a low calorie beverage.
