Holiday Foods That Actually Help You Lose WeightEatingWell2

Find out which holiday foods just might help you stay slim.
It’s the holidays and you’re supposed to be enjoying yourself! Problem is, you’re reading all these blogs about how fattening eggnog is, about how you’ll have to borrow Santa’s pants after the string of holiday soirees you’ve got lined up.

Today, I’d like to bring you a little good cheer, to tell you about three holiday foods that might actually help you lose weight. Cue: Little Drummer Boy… Drumroll, please
1. Pistachios
Various studies show that people who eat nuts tend to be leaner than those who don’t, and a recent Harvard study revealed that nuts are a top food for driving weight loss. Pistachios, in particular, are a great choice: a 1-ounce serving (157 calories) contains a generous 49 nuts. The ones you have to shell yourself are even better, as removing the shells slows you down and seeing evidence of what you’ve eaten may prevent you from reaching in for more. In a recent study out of Eastern Illinois University, people who were given unshelled pistachios consumed 41 percent fewer calories than those offered nuts with the shells already removed…….

Working on trimming the old waistline down a bit? Well from the EatingWell website here’s some Recipes to Trim Your Waistline to give you a hand! EatingWell is full of great and healthy recipes, tips, and advice. http://www.eatingwell.com/

 
Eat these waist-whittling ingredients to lose weight.EatingWell2
The secret to whittling your waistline with these recipes isn’t just that they’re low in calories. It’s in the ingredients: research suggests that eating more whole grains or including vinegar of any type in your diet may help reduce total body fat and abdominal fat. The combination of protein, fiber and healthy fats in nuts may help ward off weight gain as well. Many of these recipes include two, if not three of these ingredients—whole grains, vinegar and nuts—that can help you to stay trim.

 
Pecan & Mushroom Burgers
Filled with toasted pecans, vinegar-splashed mushrooms and bulgur, these burgers have an earthy, nutty character that pairs perfectly with the luxurious Blue Cheese Sauce…..

 

 

Mustard Greens & Bulgur
Pungent mustard greens beg for other strong flavors for balance. Here walnut oil, walnuts, dates, bulgur and white-wine vinegar do the trick…..

7 Small But Powerful Diet Habits That Add Up to Major Weight-Loss Success

Some great tips from the Eating Well website, 7 Small But Powerful Diet Habits That Add Up to Major Weight-Loss Success.

 

 

Eating Well

These small and easy changes will help you eat healthier.
When it comes to weight loss, it’s the little things that can really add up to make a big difference. Think “diet” and you might assume it requires a radical revamp of your life or misery-inducing restrictions. But when it comes to lasting weight loss, research shows you’re better off making small, consistent changes rather than aiming for a major diet or lifestyle overhaul. The key is that the changes are practical and sustainable so that you can permanently adopt them into your everyday life. In one study, people who made tiny adjustments to their eating habits were able to stick to their new routines—and had more success slimming down compared to those who didn’t incorporate the tips. To help shed pounds, without making any huge changes, follow these 7 easy habits for weight-loss success.

 

 

1. Eat Breakfast Every Day
Research shows dieters are more successful at losing weight—and keeping it off—when they eat breakfast. If you don’t already eat breakfast, start. If you are already a breakfast eater, try eating the same breakfast multiple days each week. Repeating the same meals can help you shed pounds, according to research. One of my morning favorites: a whole-wheat English muffin topped with 1 tablespoon of peanut butter and ½ sliced banana. This meal delivers a modest 278 calories, along with filling fiber and protein. It’s also portable and ready in less than 5 minutes, so forget about using any “I don’t have time for breakfast” excuses…

 

 

2. Downsize Your Dish
Studies show that we eat less when we use smaller dinnerware. The theory is that our eyes get tricked into thinking we are eating more because our plate is full, making the food portions look bigger. The result: we are satisfied with less food. Try eating your meals on salad plates instead of larger dinner plates….

Low Calorie Pasta Recipes? Still have your pasta and eat too, from the Eating Well web site. I left the link at the end of the post to get them all.

 

 

Low Calorie Pasta RecipesEating Well

 

You can eat pasta and still lose weight with these healthy pasta recipes.
Pasta is a favorite comfort food—it’s quick, easy to cook and always tastes good. But with all those carbs can it be healthy too? You bet! The trick is to keep portion sizes under control and add more lean protein and vegetables so you feel satisfied. And skip the “regular” white pasta, which is made from refined grains. Instead opt for whole-wheat pasta, which has more fiber—shown to help you lose weight. Say “yes” to pasta once again with these delicious low-calorie pasta recipes.

 

Chicken Piccata with Pasta & Mushrooms
Our chicken piccata, served over whole-wheat pasta, has a rich lemon-caper sauce that’s made with extra-virgin olive oil and just a touch of butter for flavor. If you like, you can use a mild fish like tilapia or even shrimp instead of chicken breast…..

 

 

Creamy Fettuccine with Brussels Sprouts & Mushrooms
Sliced Brussels sprouts and mushrooms cook quickly and cling to the pasta in our fall version of pasta primavera. Look for presliced mushrooms to cut prep time. Serve with a tossed salad….

6 Carbs to Add to Your Diet to Help You Stay Slim

From the Eating Well web site, 6 Carbs to Add to Your Diet to Help You Stay Slim. The link is at the bottom of the post to get them all!

 
6 Carbs to Add to Your Diet to Help You Stay SlimEating Well

Find out which “good” carbs to add to your diet to lose weight.
I’ve never been a fan of low-carb diets: our bodies and our brains need carbohydrates to work effectively. Of course, not all carbohydrates are created equally. First of all, fruits, dairy and vegetables are all sources of carbohydrates. And when it comes to starches, there are indeed “good” carbs (we’ll get to that in a sec) and the “bad” ones that, if you eat them all the time, can raise your risk of developing diseases like heart disease and diabetes. (We’re talking about doughnuts, cakes and even refined white breads.) On the flip side, eating “good carbs” in place of refined ones can reduce your risk of these very same diseases—and may even help you to lose weight because they’re generally rich in feel-full fiber. One study in the Journal of Nutrition found that eating three servings of whole grains a day helped people reduce their total body fat and abdominal fat. Here are 6 “great” carbs to keep in your diet.

 

1. Whole-Wheat Pasta
Because sometimes you just need pasta—and whole-wheat kinds offer two to three times more fiber than refined white varieties, but they’re just as versatile and delicious. (Similiarly whole-wheat bread and brown rice are healthier choices than their “white” counterparts.)…

 

 

 

2. Quinoa
Consider it souped-up couscous. A delicately flavored whole grain, it provides some fiber (2 grams per half cup) and a good amount of protein (4 grams). Note: Research shows protein can help you feel full for longer. Rinsing quinoa removes any residue of saponin, its natural bitter protective coating.

To cook: Bring 2 cups water or broth to a boil; add 1 cup quinoa. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook until the liquid has been absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork…..

5 reasons to start drinking green tea today..

Excellent article on my favorite health drink, Green Tea. I left the link to the article at the bottom of the page. Check the site out while there, seems to have a lot of good info!

 
5 reasons to start drinking green tea today

 

Kriti Saraswat November 6,

 
Fit celebrities and nutritionists alike will tell you that green tea is a vital part of a healthy diet. Ever wondered what makes this beverage such a big hit? For starters, a cup of green tea contains as little as 2 calories which makes it ideal for weight-watchers. Here are other reasons to start with your green cuppa today.

Fights cancer:
Green tea is full of antioxidants which help in preventing various kinds of cancers. Antioxidants avert the damage caused by free radicals (molecules produced when the body breaks down food or due to smoking, drinking, etc) by attacking them before they can damage healthy cells. This in turn protects the body from various ailments. (Read: Drink green tea for weight loss and to keep heart disease at bay!)

Keeps heart healthy:
Drinking green tea regularly can help you keep heart ailments like stroke at bay. This is because it lowers the bad cholesterol in your body and prevents blockage around the arteries.

Aids in weight loss:
It is a low-calorie drink no doubt. But it is also good for your metabolism as it increases it which means you burn more calories faster. It also stimulates the nervous system which enhances the fat-burning process. Team it with 30 minutes of daily exercise and right diet and you are sure to get a toned body.

Slows skin ageing:
Since green tea has antioxidants, it slows down the ageing process and makes your skin look youthful. The skin shows signs of ageing like fine lines, wrinkles, etc when it is not well-hydrated and as one nears menopause. In order to combat this, drink green tea daily which will reduce the appearance of lines by boosting collagen production. (Read: 3 secret anti-ageing potions revealed)

Regulates blood sugar levels:
Diabetics often have to worry about the spike in their blood sugar levels after a meal. Drinking green tea will regulate as it has polyphenols and polysaccharides which are effective in lowering these levels. According to researchers, a polyphenol called epigallocatechin gallete (EGCG) inhibits the production of glucose in the liver in turn lowering the blood sugar levels.

How to make green tea

Switch to green tea for your health’s sake. A cup in the morning or before bed is ideally recommended but you can have it any time according to your preference. Here’s how you can make a perfect cup of green tea:

Boil water in a vessel. Now add one teaspoon of green tea leaves in it. (If you are making more than one cup, add one tsp for every cup). Let the leaves boil for 2-3 minutes at least and then turn off the gas.

Place a sieve over the cup and strain the water in it. Now add a spoon of honey in it. You can also add a dash of lemon for that extra zing. Mix well and enjoy.

These days, there are green teabags available in the market in various flavours including mint, lemon, etc. You can use these too. Just place the teabag in the cup and add hot water. Let it settle for 2-3 minutes and then add honey and enjoy your tea.
