A Day Of Healthy Recipes For Weight Loss

Isn’t the internet awash with dieting nonsense these days? Coffee’s, Teas, pills and potions. All you really want is simple, healthy recipes with real food. Here is my day of healthy recipes for weight loss.

I have picked three very simple dishes that have many possible combinations. You could use these three meals as the foundation for any diet. After each meal I suggest you have a piece of fruit.

Breakfast Omelette, 2 eggs, 10 ml milk, half an onion chopped, tomato chopped, 3 green beans Chopped

The reason I have picked an omelette is because it is so versatile. There are so many variations you can have to stop it being boring. This means you can have it for many days at a time and not get bored. Also it is so simple to make. It takes a couple of minutes, and it fills you up.

Two eggs actually give you all the protein you need for a day. They also contain every vitamin. The vegetables are giving you dietary fiber, vitamins and other nutrients. As far as healthy recipes for weight loss go this is a great way to start the day.

Lunch Salad, 1/4 lettuce – Chinese or iceberg (crunchy lettuce), 1/2 onion finely chopped, 1 tomato chopped, 4 raw mushrooms chopped, 50 grams bean sprouts, Half can of tuna, Olive oil – 10ml, Half a lemon squeezed

Make it big! Salad has a bad name. It doesn’t have to be boring and it doesn’t have to be tiny either. Use nice crunchy lettuce to give it some texture a whole tomato, half an onion and half a can of tuna. I am not joking this will fill you right up. You will definitely not be hungry after that. Like omelets, salads are very versatile too. You can mix and match them to stop them getting boring.

Dinner Pork steak with stir fried vegetables, 200 grams pork, chopped onion, chopped tomato, chopped green beans, chopped courgette, Soy Sauce

I love a large chunk of meat. People seem to think that they need to hold back when losing weight. This is not true. You can eat a lot and still lose weight. As long as you eat the right food it is not a problem at all. Enjoy your dinner and fill up on a nice chunk of meat and a heap of crunchy vegetables. This another main stay of healthy recipes for weight loss. Just simple, tasty meat and vegetables.

That is my day of healthy recipes for weight loss. Please realise how versatile those dishes are. You really can use them as the foundation for healthy sustained weight loss.

A routine I have incorporated in to my day that keeps me fit and lean is by running first thing in the morning and I will explain in a bit. If you are looking to lose a couple of pounds over a few weeks by having an early jog 3-4 times a week will help you achieve your goals. I have written another article here at Street Articles you may be interested in for toning up called “Grab a jump rope and skip yourself slim”.

Running In The Morning,How, Why?

This is actually much harder than you think, and the key ingredient you need here is, motivation. Getting your self up an hour or half an hour earlier than you usually get up is the hardest part, but, it is about routine and self discipline. You will want to run for around 10 mins or up to 20 mins, no more as it is really just a wake up call, but also a high boost to your metabolism. If you are a beginner, just run for around 10 minutes and gradually add on more time, depending on how much time you have in the morning.


I really love my run first thing in the morning and remember how hard it was to get in to this routine, but with out my morning run (and rope) I would not be in the great shape I am now.

– Running first thing in the morning is a great way of creating mental alertness, basically waking up your brain, you do feel so alive, so energetic when you return, and the best part, you feel like you have been to the gym yet still have a whole day ahead of you, nothing wasted.

– Pumping that Heart. As we know, getting our heart rate up is important in fitness and getting it up first thing in the morning will wake up your body as well as your brain, actually boosting brain power setting you up for the day, and with the heart racing through the day, helping burn calories.

– The Metabolism Monster. It builds up your metabolism preparing you for a raging breakfast. Building up your metabolism can help you lose weight once you eat the right balanced diet.

– Duracell Bunny. Starting the day with a run creates crazy energy and keeps going through the day you will not believe how alert and happy you feel inside by just getting into a routine of a morning run.

Remember, it is mind over matter when trying to get up in the morning but if you are determined to lose weight with a run then this should be your motivation. Be sure to get plenty of sleep, stay hydrated, wear the right clothing, wear the right shoe to try and avoid running pains and irritations, start of slow and eventually you will build up time and pace. Take it easy to during the morning, this is a relaxing run that helps to set you up for the day but comes with great benefits. I live by my morning run and hope this article can help motivate you too. Any questions feel free to ask in the comment bow below, enjoy.

The Easiest Way To Lose Weight The Scientific Facts

download (66)Are you fed up of diets that are a real chore and almost impossible to stick to? If you are like everybody else you probably stop the diet early or put the weight back on straight after. That was me for eighteen years of my life.

I tried hundreds of diets. I was so fed up that I decided to investigate for my self what the easiest way to lose weight is. I found out that the easiest way to lose weight has been staring us in the face all the time.

I researched through many websites, books, and scientific studies. They all said the same thing. They said that the easiest way to lose weight is just to eat for good health. This was all backed up by hundreds of scientific studies.

Studies throughout the nineteen seventies, eighties, nineties and right up to two thousand and ten all said that diets don’t work and that eating for good health was the best way.

What was even more shocking was that these studies showed that diets actually make people fatter. Yes, information collected from over 31 studies involving more than 20,000 people said that diets actually end up making people gain weight in the long term. They also said that diets just create more problems for people than they actually solve. Like eating disorders and other emotional problems.

I have to say I was pretty stunned in a way. I almost didn’t believe it at first because all the information we are given in papers and magazines and on the TV say that dieting is the easiest way to lose weight. It was a bit of a shock. How come the media is so full of diets if scientific data over forty years all concludes that diets don’t work? All these studies involving over 20,000 participants said that eating for good health is the easiest way to lose weight efficiently and to keep it off?

I guess money is the answer. The diet industry has come up with all of these silly cures that have nothing to do with health. Teas, coffees, cabbage soup diets, pills, potions, reduced calorie regimes and many more. If they just told you to eat for good health none of us would be buying their products. This would in fact lose them billions of dollars. And saved me a bunch too ;-).

After reading all of this I started to eat for good health and the weight has come off and stayed off. Yes I did a little exercise. That was highlighted in the studies too. The people most successful in long term weight loss did some exercise. Don’t worry I just go for a walk every day. Forget the gym. I found out in my research that going to the gym has the same terrible success rate as diets. People find going to the gym too hard. (money again being the reason for false information).

Anyway, the point is the easiest way to lose weight is just to eat for good health. Forty years of scientific study has told us this. I am sorry if it is the age old boring advice you may have heard a hundred times. Just eat plenty of fruit and vegetables, ditch processed foods, eat lean meat and stay away from refined carbohydrates like pasta, rice, bread and potatoes. That is the easiest way to lose weight. Not only is it the easiest way to lose weight, it is the best way for long term results as well.
