Alabama, a Free Healthier, Lower Calorie Menu for Dieters
Alabama - The Heart of Dixie State, The Camellia State, The Yellowhammer State, The Cotton State.
One cannot think of Alabama without a picturesque family scene appearing in their minds - lazy hot summers, coolers of lemonade and kids catching fireflies in Mason jars.
Peanuts and corn comprise two top crops harvested in the state of Alabama.
Pork is another big piece of the 'crop' pie. The backbone of the diet of early Alabama settlers centered around crops indigenous to the area.
This was of course before the days of new-fangled farm machinery and massive manufacturing, as well as before the earliest inhabitants - the Chickasaw, Choctaw, Cherokee and Creek Indian tribes.
Keeping this in mind, we have built our Alabama Diet Menu around these three tasty, healthy crops in our salute to Alabamians.

Our Weight Loss Meal Formula
To keep as satisfied as possible while dieting, it's a good idea to ration out your calories so that you are never placed in a situation where you are so hungry that you throw your diet away.
We suggest that you allow 350 calories for breakfast, 500 calories for lunch and 400 calories for dinner. Allow about 100 calories for a couple of snacks throughout the day. Total calories - about 1,350.
