Tuna Recipe

Enjoy Light as Lamb's Wool Tuna Cakes: 3 ounces (1/2 small can) of tuna in spring water, 5 cracker, 1 egg white, 2 Tablespoons of flour, salt and cracked pepper to personal taste. 

Mix and drop into a pan sprayed with no calories buttery cooking spray. Cook until golden on one side; flip until golden on the other. Enjoy with a bit of catsup or a spoon of light jam or marmalade. Calories in Tuna Cakes: About 150 for all.

Quick Chili Pie Recipe

Substitute beef canned chili with turkey chili. Turkey chili lacks the fat and calorie content of other meat-based chilies but it doesn't lack taste. An equally healthy option over turkey chili is vegetarian chili, rich in beans - a natural source of protein.

Cooking Tips to Reduce Fat, Calories, Sugar & Sodium While Dieting

Add a few zingers to zip up your diet beverage. Examples: cherries to diet cola and lemon to lemon-lime diet soda.

Cozy up to your honey. Making love is definitely an activity that will burn off calories. An added bonus of dieting is that the closer you get to your weight loss goals, the sexier you're going to feel!

Find other avenues of celebrating that don't involve feasting.

Great low calorie recipes and motivational weight loss articles can be found in books and magazines. Keep a few on hand to help motivate you when you're experiencing frustration.

Looking for a sweet treat low in fat and calories? Might we recommend the enticing plum for about 35 calories? And she's fresh, too.....

Use half sugar and half Splenda when baking. Sugar contains about 800 calories per cup - so you can save a sugar-bunch of calories. 

Other than sugar, oil and flour are two Big Bad Boys when it comes to calories and weight gain - so be on the lookout for The Big Three: Sugar, Flour, Oil/Lard/Shortening.

Introduce edible flowers and blossoms into your dull diet plan. Roses, squash blossoms - all little beauties to enhance your weight loss experience.

The current 'egg per day' recommendation is ONE and that includes eggs used to prepare all the foods that you eat throughout the day.
