Adding Salads, Soups to Your Fat Loss Plan
Another item to take note of is sodium content - particularly in soups.
Popular canned soups can contain 40% or more per serving of your daily recommended sodium intake and can make you blow up like a hot-air balloon.
Even though the weight gain is temporary due to salt's ability to retain water (and water weighs most heavily...) it can produce a false feeling of Diet Failure as well as make a body feel miserable.
When it comes to healthy salads, take caution with the following additives:
regular salad dressings
Yeah - all the 'fun' things. :-) However, a salad can still be tasty.
Try adding a bit of dried fruit such as cranberries rather than cheese.
Try adding a few sunflower seeds rather than buttered croutons. And try adding some light dressing rather than full blown.
See? You really can have your salad and eat it too!
1. Try using 1/2 the amount in recipes. You'll more likely be able to taste the earthy, natural goodness of foods rather than salt.
2. Remove the salt shaker from the dining table. No need to add more if your food already has some inside.
3. Brush visible salt from foods such as baked fries, pretzels and baked chips.
4. Pickled foods are mined with salt so dieter beware. continue
