A great diet-friendly egg salad consists of the following ingredients and makes 2 generous servings: 4 boiled eggs (use only 2 of the yolks) peeled and mashed, 1 Tablespoon of LIGHT Mayo, 1/2 teaspoon of sweet pickle relish, salt and pepper to taste. About 100 calories per serving. Serve on toasted wheat bread using no calorie butter spray to toast bread with. Toast until golden.
The current 'egg per day' recommendation is ONE and that includes eggs used to prepare all the foods that you eat throughout the day.
You've only got so many calories to spend for the day, and you need to keep those at a minimum while losing weight. Therefore, spend your calories wisely!
Keep in mind that 3,500 calories equals one pound, so for every 3,500 calories that you consume over your daily calorie needs, a pound will practically glue itself to your hips or buttocks.
Look for foods low in calories and fat that take a long while to eat - such as baby carrots, hard sourdough pretzels, even sunflower seeds - although high in fat, a little goes a long weigh...or is that way?
A large bucket of buttered popcorn at the movies contains about 1,650 calories - probably more calories that your diet plan contains for an entire day.
How many calories does a 32 ounce soda at the movies contain? About 450. Opt for the diet offerings instead. How many calories? Zero.
Good Carbs vs Bad Carbs - When carb dieting opt for complex carbs over simple carbs.
Example of complex carb: brown rice
Example of simple carb: donut
Calories count - so count those calories! Counting calories is one of the most accurate ways (if not the most accurate way) of controlling and managing weight.
Enjoy three healthy meals each day. Keeping food intake at a regulated level helps promote healthy digestion - and helps keep the hungries at bay while dieting.
The longer that unwanted weight hangs around - the tougher it is to lose. It either packs onto the body - or grows over time. Losing weight may cure or vastly improve a multitude of ailments from acid reflux to apnea.
