How can you lose weight and still eat a lot of the things you love? Swap unhealthy ingredients for healthy substitutes and control the portions of what you eat. I also think you’ll have a more enthusiastic attitude about cooking and buying vegetables (also vital for weight loss) if you buy some certain gadgets to make the cooking easier. You’ll probably want to buy more dishes and silverware. If you buy smaller plates, bowls, cups, and spoons this will help you to eat less without feeling like you need more. Of course the size of the dishes shouldn’t become too much smaller because subtlety is key here- it should be smaller enough for you to feel full after eating.
Consider the fact that portions of food that Americans eat (the total amount on your dinner plate, etc) have doubled since the 1950’s. If your recent ancestors can eat less and feel fine, so can you.
Have a digital diary of what you eat each day if you’re serious about tracking what you eat, losing weight, and other health related goals. If your diary is digital, preferably in the cloud then you can access it pretty much anywhere. That way you don’t have to make a mental note to bring some notebook with you at all times.
Now I’ll recommend some products for your kitchen for you to make healthy meals more effectively with ease.
Orka Multi Steamer by Orka Mastrad
Food that you cook retains important vitamins and minerals; heat safe to 430 degrees F.
The food get steamed in own juices, no additional fats needed.
The Bagel Whizz
A tool that fits in your hands digs out a portion of bagels. Its not messy and you don’t need to use your fingers to do any of the digging. You just press it in, and turn with your wrist. Then you can put something inside of it such as eggs, peanut butter, or whatever you like. Its not an excuse to load it up with toppings.
Bagels are a lot bigger than they once were.
Spiral Vegetable Slicer
This works well on many vegetables. It replaces the manual task of cutting them up and its not necessary to blend the veggies. Great looking shapes come out of it.
