Ways to Cut Calories While Preparing Foods

 

  • healthy lifestyle cooking tipsTrim all the fat from meat before cooking.
  • For pan-frying, use a pan with a nonstick finish to eliminate or reduce the need for fat.
  • If frying in a regular pan, sprinkle the bottom with salt or use very little fat.
  • To render more than fat by frying, broil meat that you normally would pan-fry, even as a first step to stews. If meat is browned in a pan, drain off all fat before adding other ingredients.
  • When preparing soups, stews, or meat in sauces, allow time to refrigerate the mixture until the fat congeals and can be entirely removed and discarded.
  • Rather than sauteing vegetables in butter, margarine or oil, cook them in a small amount of water with herbs or in bouillon.
  • For meat glazes and other uses, choose juice packed canned fruits instead of those packed in heavy syrup. You can also use unsweetened juices and applesauce.
  • Use tuna fish that has been packed in water rather than in oil or wash oil off packed tuna.
  • For salads and marinating or basting poultry or meats, use a bottled low-calorie dressing. Marinating before cooking also eliminates the need for using fat.
  • When broiling or baking fish, use wine, bouillon, or lemon juice instead of butter.

I lost 10 pounds over 3 months counting PTS with Weight Watchers and then I started HLS. I lost 10 pounds during the class period and loved the personalized nutrition template because it makes it easy! It is easy to eat according to the profile. I just asked myself – did I already have my starch today? Starch is my down fall! ILoved the personalized nutrition template
