Weight Loss Tips, Easy Recipes for Diet Plans

Have you ever noticed that the very instant that you can't do something - it turns out to be the exact something that you want to do? Like with losing weight. While on a diet plan, dieters generally restrict their caloric intake to produce weight loss results.

When doing such, many foods that they are used to enjoying are suddenly restricted from their daily diet  - such as the chocolate covered candy bar above. When enjoyed in moderation, almost all foods can be a part of a healthy weight loss plan. Even chocolate covered candy.

However, because foods such as candy, ice cream, cookies, cakes, pies - among other foods can be very high in calories as well as dietary fat grams, these are the foods that get crossed off a dieter's daily menu - and rightfully so.

But at some point in the weight loss plan, the individual may experience a particular craving for an old food favorite. And once they surrender to the cravings, the majority of the time they feel like they have blown their weight loss plan - so why bother continuing?

If this sounds familiar and you experience a weak moment, try to get your wits about you and limit the serving size of that favorite former food. This should erase any guilt; and be certain to include the caloric value contained therein into your daily caloric total.

Making Former Favorite Foods Healthier

Using simple tricks for your favorite high calorie foods can bring down the caloric values significantly. Let's examine one recipe makeover for meatloaf - a food that is highly unlikely to be found on a dieter's menu.

Traditional Meatloaf Recipe

2 Pounds of Regular Ground Beef 70% lean, 30% fat
1 egg, beaten
Onion, Bell Pepper, Salt, Ground Black Pepper
1/2 cup Bread Crumbs

Revised Diet Meatloaf Recipe

2 Pounds of Extra Lean Ground Beef 95% lean, 5% fat
Egg Substitute to equal 1 egg
Onion, Bell Pepper, Salt, Ground Black Pepper
1/2 cup Bread Crumbs

For both recipes, combine the ground beef, egg and bread crumbs. Pound until meatloaf is solidly pressed. Place into a loaf pan; top with catsup, rings of raw onion and rings of bell pepper. Bake at 350 degrees until meat juices run clear - or about 1 hour.

We can even use the egg rather than the egg substitute - and still have a very healthy meatloaf recipe. Using the leaner cuts of the beef saves us more than 1/2 the calories as the fattier cut.

The 95% lean, 5% fat variety contains 621 calories per pound with 22 grams of total dietary fat, 10 of those grams from saturated fat. The 70% lean, 30% fat contains 1,506 calories per pound and 136 total fat grams - 55 grams in saturated fat. That's a substantial savings!
