Cooking Tips to Slash Fat & Calories

Easy Low Fat Pan-Roasted Potato Recipe

Spray a pan with no calorie butter flavored spray. Slice 1 medium potato into thin slices. There is no need to remove the peeling but be certain to wash and dry the potato before slicing. It can be cut vertically or diagonally - as you choose.

'Fry' the potato slices in the pan, turning once. Salt and pepper as desired. Feel free to add other herbs and spices to the potato as it cooks.

Enjoy with catsup for about 120 calories plus the catsup calories.

Hide your iron skillet or toss it in with your camping gear. Iron skillets are perfect for frying, and if you love frying, the temptation may be a tab too much.

Purchase reduced calorie margarine and season with your favorite spices.  

Food Pyramid Weight Loss & Nutrition Tip: Enjoy 3-5 servings of vegetables per day.

Use diet bread (35 calories) over whole bread (130) and save up to 95 calories per slice. Top your bread with diet-wise selections such as lean meats, skim based cheeses, light egg salad, light chicken salad and simple veggies. To add a bit of grain, sprinkle on sesame seeds or poppy seeds.

Try warming up your diet soda for a different twang. This diet tip is one that is soothing at the end of a long tiring day.

Peanut Butter Tips

A serving of peanut butter is about the size of a golf ball.

Peanut butter is high in calories and fat BUT don't count it completely out of your diet plan. A little goes a long way and peanut butter is a good source of protein.

Sensible Weight Loss Tips for Dieters

Try to avoid eating while watching TV. My uncle once killed an entire plate of brownies while watching the movie "The River Wild". Even sadder, he didn't remember eating them....

Exercise balls are not only economical and good 'Weight Loss Tools' they are fun! Check out your local Super-Mart or sporting goods store.

If you don't like something that you're eating, then excuse yourself and get it out of your mouth.

Keep your mind busy while dieting. A hobby, sewing, even the Internet helps keep your mind occupied and off of the thought of, "Oh my gosh, I'm on a diet!"
