Just about everyone loves eating french fries. Unfortunately, they cause problems for many people who are trying to lose weight. That said, if you absolutely must have french fries, have baked fries instead of those that are fried. Start by slicing your potatoes into 1/2 inch long fries. Then, place them in a bowl with a tablespoon of oil and lightly dust them with salt, pepper, and rosemary to taste. Bake a single layer of the fries for 30 minutes at 400 degrees. Loosen it by using a spatula, bake and turn it for another ten minutes or so. These potatoes are yummy when dipped in ketchup, and they do not have as many calories as traditional fries. This great idea for “French Bakes” came from Laurel’s Kitchen cookbook.
Maintaining a low body weight is much easier when food consumption during the later evening hours is avoided. It is easier said than done, but avoid eating before bedtime. Any food you eat will not be burned off and just stored in your fat cells. Eat a few hours before you go to bed and remain active throughout the evening so you burn these calories.
A simple way to lose some additional pounds is to eat slowly. When digestion starts, fullness sets in. Your body needs time for your mind to tell you that it’s satisfied. Put the fork down and enjoy each bite. You will feel full without eating too much using this technique.
Set aside enough time in the morning to eat breakfast. When you’re in a hurry, you could easily be tempted to get a breakfast pastry as you go to work. These types of items will fill you with unnecessary calories. Make the time to have some fruit and oatmeal at home, and you won’t have to stop for junk food.
