Healthy Recipes for Weight Loss

Add healthy recipes for weight loss to help you control your weight and become healthier.

The first question you need to answer is how do you choose a healthy eating plan?

According to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, the guidelines for a healthy eating plan are:

* A heavy emphasis for fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fat-free or low-fat milk and milk products

* Meals should include lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, eggs, and nuts

* Food needs to be low in saturated fats, trans fats, cholesterol, salt (sodium), and added sugars

* Stay within your daily calorie needs

I've mentioned it elsewhere but it's important to mention again. Healthy recipes for weight loss can sometimes be making simple changes to a current recipe. As an example, if your favorite recipe calls for frying fish or breaded chicken, try healthier variations using baking or grilling. Or try a recipe that uses dry beans rather than higher-fat meats.

You don't have to completely give up your comfort foods, however. Consume less and eat less when you do eat them. If your macaroni and cheese recipe uses whole milk and butter, try remaking it with non-fat milk and less butter.

Eating healthy to lose or maintain weight is important.

My wife was a diabetic for over 40 years until she received a pancreas transplant recently. Healthy food has always been something we strived for and, of course, our menu had to be planned around her needs.
