Eat to lose weight

So, as expected, it seems like I seriously need to lose a few (read: five to ten) pounds.

To get myself started on this great, big task, I began not eating rice during dinner – no rice after 6! But I know I have to be doing more than that if I want to shed the fat. I know, though that even the best diet pills on the market are out of the question. No, thanks.

Do you know that there are foods to eat to help you lose weight? According to an article on Women’s Health, these foods make us feel full longer, keep the blood sugar levels low longer, help burn fat faster and even reduce blood triglycerides (the bad fats). What are these foods?

  • berries
  • low-fat yogurt
  • peanuts
  • turkey
  • breakfast cereals
  • enova oil

Of course, a healthy diet must consist of more than just the ones mentioned above. I learned a while back (when I began losing weight 3 years ago) that it really isn’t rocket-science. All we need to eat healthily is common sense – choose a lean cut of meat over a fatty one, brown over white rice, fruits over junk, baked over fried…

And then, choose to just do it! (The most difficult part).
