The Simple Things You Can Do To Create Your Own Reduced Calorie Meals

Health,Food & Beverages,Cuisine
If you are looking to lose a little or a lot of weight you will find an abundance of fads, cleanses and other types of questionable and potentially dangerous information available. The best way to lose the love handles and muffin top forever is to embrace a reduced calorie or low calorie diet. This is the method that is recommended the most by nutritionists, doctors and other health experts.

When you are not eating as many calories, you will obtain a sustainable and long term weight loss. You may think of reduced calorie diets as being tasteless and dull but you can create your own meal plan that will allow you to enjoy a diet that is skimpy on the calories but not on the flavour.

Find Your Magic Number

The first thing you will need to do is determine the number of calories you will need to eat every day. There are lots of online charts, calculators and other resources that will help you find out this information. You can also consult your physician or nutritionist. Certain factors will make it easier for you or a professional to assess your caloric needs. Your age, weight, height and gender will be used to help formulate the foundation of your meal plan. The amount of physical activity that you engage in will also be helpful in determining this information.

Most health experts are now recommending that people eat five to six small meals a day versus the three big meals that have been a staple in the nutrition and diet world. You will take the number that was derived for your caloric requirements and divide this number by either five or six depending on how many meals you want to eat every day. Your biggest meals should be between 300 to 400 calories whilst your smaller meals or snacks should not be over 100 calories every day.

Make Vegetables Famous In Your Home

The staple for most of your meals will be a vegetable source. You should choose vegetables that are nutrient dense like greens. There are also a variety of water dense vegetables that you can select from like squash and broccoli. Learn to experiment with different cooking techniques like stir fry and steaming. There are also numerous health benefits to eating vegetables raw. Your lunch and dinner plates should be half filled with vegetables.

Be Selective With Your Protein Choices

You should avoid eating any fatty types of protein and choose healthier cuts of meat. For example you can switch from eating a chicken leg to eating skinless chicken breast. Bison and fish are also healthy protein choices.

If you are looking for an alternative protein source you can select legumes like black beans or kidney beans. You should make sure that your lunch or dinner plate is no more than a quarter filled with protein.

Finish It Off With Whole Grains

There is continued debate as to whether whole grains are truly healthy for you to eat. Quinoa, brown rice and barley are healthier alternatives to white rice. The last part of your plate should be filled with one of these grains.

You do not have to be afraid of fats but you should always select the healthiest fats available. Olive oil, nuts and avocado are healthy choices.

Laura Ginn realises that fewer calories and healthier meals are the keys to long term weight loss. She often eats reduced calorie meals when she feels the need to lose a few pounds.
