I started out last October 2009 at 248 lbs. I knew I wanted to lose weight for good this time. So, I created a diet based off of nutrition book’s and not fad diet’s. I’m now down to 175 and at my target weight.
I think the most important thing’s I learned on this diet is:
Video That Show’s the Best Food’s
What Do I Eat?
Here I’ll list my favorite meal’s. One of them is Pizza! These keep me excited and contain those food’s I couldn’t give up. The only thing I think you must eat everyday is a high fiber cereal and a healthy bran muffin or piece of bread. Here are the best cereal’s, listed in order:
Here are my favorite muffin’s / bread’s:
Veggie Burger & Baked Potato & Veggie’s
I eat this at least once a week. If you slice a potato into wedge’s and bake them at 425 for twenty minute’s you have some healthy potato chip’s. Here is the rest of the meal:
That’s for anyone that says you can’t eat a lot while dieting. It’s the calorie’s that count, not the quantity. For the rest of the article, if I refer to fried veggie’s I’m referring to the list above. You can substitute with the veggie’s I list here: The Best Food’s
These fake turkey burger’s are really good and healthy.
Chicken Patty Meal
Here is a twice is a twice a week at most meal. The chicken patty is to die for, but a little high in fat. Eat this to reward yourself.
Tomato Sauce & Pasta
This is the healthiest pasta meal I can put together. The best pasta and sauce. Remember to use as many fresh or dried spice’s as you can. Avoid salt, but use pepper and other spice’s to the max.
I love this and you can eat it as often as you like.
Then choose one of these:
I’ve been working towards the greatest pizza recipe for over 10 years. Here it is. This is my once every 2 week treat. This recipe make’s 4 servings. So you can only have 1/4.
Topping’s for pizza
Bake the 2 pizza’s for 12 minute’s at 550 degree’s.
Fish in a Bag
This is a great way to steam fish in the oven. Use one of these super healthy fish:
Preheat oven at 475 degrees. Then after you fill a pan with aluminum foil, place the following inside and wrap the aluminum foil around:
I then eat this with my stand by veggie’s and maybe a potato.
Super Fast Salmon with Fava Beans
This meal can be made in 15 minutes if you cook the salmon (tuna) on an outdoor grill. If you cook the salmon on a grill, turn up the heat on full blast on one side and half way on the other side. Put olive oil on a paper towel that has been stacked. Quickly wipe the paper towel on the low heat side of the grill and then place salmon on that same side of the grill. Close the grill lid and let cook for 5 minutes, then flip and cook to taste. If you don’t have an outdoor grill, spray a pan, turned to high with PAM. Place salmon in pan and let stand for 5 minutes. Flip the salmon and add a half cup of water, cover and let steam til done to you taste.
Blend the lemon juice, Mustard, 1/4 cup Olive Oil, Chives and pepper. Remove from blender and chill. Blend Fava Beans, Thyme, 2 Tbs Olive Oil, Pepper and then fry in a pan like refried beans.
Take the bean mixture and place in center of plate. Place salmon (tuna) fillet on beans and top with lemon / olive oil dressing. I love this!!
That’s All Folk’s
This is the staple meal’s that make up my diet plan. All healthy, for the most part (pizza). They all taste great to me. Just never ever eat fast food, but instead eat homemade and healthy and you can only lose.
