Losing Weight, Diet Menus
If you're planning on losing weight in the new year, Diet Bites has more free diet menus and diet plans than any other pocket on the web. If you're pondering a healthy diet menu, let's take a look at just one original that we created with the dieter in mind.
It's based on a 1,500 calorie diet; while this might seem a bit high in caloric values - almost anyone can go on a 1,500 calorie diet and lose all of their extra pounds -safely.
Now let's take a look at a healthy diet menu built on the food pyramid and the healthy food groups therein.
Diet Breakfast Meal Plate
1 egg prepared any way, 2 strips of bacon prepared in the microwave, one slice of whole grain toast, 1 serving of reduced fat margarine, 1 cup of skim milk and 1 teaspoon of fruit preserves. Also add one cup of coffee with reduced fat creamer and sugar substitute or tea with reduced calorie products.
The dieter can also enjoy the coffee and tea throughout their day and with meals as long as they use reduced fat products for sweetening power and to add creamy texture.
Morning Snack: 1 small apple
Diet Lunch Meal Plate
Tuna salad sandwich prepared with one small three ounce can of white tuna packed in water, light Mayo, a spoon of sweet pickle relish and two slices of whole grain bread. Also add leaves of lettuce and slices of tomato to the sandwich. The bread can be used fresh - or toasted.
Also add one serving of light cottage cheese and a serving of whole grain crackers to the meal plate.
Afternoon Snack: 1 banana
Diet Dinner Meal Plate
1 serving of chicken noodle soup served before the main course for about 60 calories.. Also one serving of Great Northern beans - or the dieter's favorite legumes or lentils, one small flour tortilla shell and one ounce of reduced fat cheese.
The cheese can be shredded and added to the tortilla with the beans if desired for a rustic burrito. Salsa can also be added along with chopped raw onion, chopped tomatoes and sliced pickled jalapeno peppers.
Bedtime Snack Suggestion
1 single serving container of low fat yogurt containing fruit
Be sure to plan your meal plates in advance so that temptation will be limited; the more that you plan, the less apt that you'll be tempted to change your mind. And if your meal plates are healthy as well as flavorful, then you'll also be more satisfied - thus easily resisting temptation.
As the next few days blend into the lovely month of December, if you are on a weight loss plan - then be sure to keep the focus as the holiday season grows heavy with temptation. Remember to hang onto your weight loss dreams, which will become a reality if you continue forward positively.
