Quick Recipes for Dieters

Low Calorie/Low Fat Recipes = More Food = Higher Weight Loss Success Rate
One of the biggest drawbacks with dieting is the need to decrease calories - and in order to do such, this generally equals less food.
We all develop patterns in life, and these patterns also apply to our daily diet. When the body is accustomed to taking in a particular amount of food, when that amount is reduced, an invisible alarm goes off.
My oh my - something is awry. I'm on a diet again.
So we constantly hear advice about 'cutting a soda' a day and lose x-amount of weight - but seriously, this trick never works.
It's that smart body thing again. When it is used to eating that certain amount - it knows when the kcals from a soda is missing and it tends to fill in the blanks with other foods that will mirror those slashed from the soda.
And many times, the individual will think in this manner, "Oh shoot - I am doing without the soda today, so I'm going to go ahead an stick this food into my plan. Both contain the same number of kcals, anyway." And into the piehole goes that candy bar stuffed with peanuts and caramel.
Quick & Easy, Important When Losing
Diet recipes need to be quick and easy - foods that can be easily packaged for on-the-go events, such as lunch time away from home. That frozen low cal cardboard meal can get old. And seriously, while many hold good flavors - none that we have tried are the things that awesomeness is made of. The most expensive frozen meal at the local market simply cannot compete with a pan roasted chicken breast - or oven roasted fish.
Given the need to have meals on the table in a flash, the following recipes are ultra low in calories and can be consumed heartily without damping your weight loss process.
So eat hearty, be strong, enjoy the freshness of real foods & aim for the Diet Bullseye. Hopefully, these low calorie recipes will help you do just that. 14 Carrot Diet Salad | The Popeye Salad | Melons Meets Mango | Stone Fruit Salad | Jack's Beanstalk | Laguna Tuna | Spring Veggie Cakes | Confetti Cabbage
