Eat More Wisely And Lose Weight

By Susan Worrell

Though we all like to splurge on bad foods once in a while, we can't do this regularly. Despite this, it's easier said than done as it's always hard to stay consistently disciplined.

Since we have a hard time holding back sometimes, many of us gain weight over time. For a number of reasons, both physical and medical, we should definitely make all possible efforts to keep ourselves at a healthy weight.

While the best way to get there is exercise, what you eat is just as important. Instead of eating these unhealthy foods regularly, I'd like to suggest some replacements that taste just as good as the real thing. Most importantly, you'll find yourself consuming less unhealthy calories.

They say that the average American consumes several hamburgers per week, and I'm not surprised. After all, look at how successful McDonald's and other franchises are. Still, this isn't healthy and a white meat turkey burger would be a much better alternative and one I'd recommend.

When prepared right, these can be just as delicious as an ordinary hamburger with just a fraction of the fat content.

Another thing you may want to do is to choose a sparkling juice drink instead of soda. You'd be surprised by how great certain brands like Izze can taste. The best thing about them is that there's no added sugar, so it's just like the equivalent of eating fruit.

French fries are another silent killer that we simply should be eating less of. It might be hard to do this at first, but start eating baked potatoes in their place.

As an added treat, you can always throw a slice of cheese onto your potato, as it'll still be much lower in fat than french fries would be.

All of these things will make a difference in your life, and there's no better time to get started than now. - 31805
