Meals That Are Fat Burners!

Breakfast: A good morning scrambled or hardboiled egg on toasted whole wheat muffin; top with slice of low fat Swiss cheese; microwave to melt cheese; top with your favorite salsa. Sliced orange on the side.

Lunch: Mix a tasty cold, cubed, chicken breast in a bowl with lite mayo; add chopped  green and red apples; throw in some slivered almonds. Serve with baked blue tortilla chips.

Snack on satisfying Edamame (shelled soy beans) to hold you over until dinner. They are tasty, somewhat salty, a little sweet and high in protein too.

Dinner: Put together cold or warmed salmon in a soft corn tortilla; top with shredded red cabbage and your favorite salsa. Serve with a side of frozen and  then baked sweet potato French fries.

Dessert: Make a sinfully delicious Yogurt Parfait with either plain or vanilla low fat yogurt; layer yogurt with slivered almonds, blueberries and raspberries in a tall ice cream glass. Serve chilled!

My Program

My Daily Workout: I have been working out since I joined my first gym when I was 14 years old.  That is when my passion for fitness and nutrition began. Ever since then, I have been on a regular 5 days per week exercise program, and I love the way it makes me feel too: Calm, Focused, Happy and Able to manage life.

Here's How I Do It: Walk 1 hour 3 days per week - Elliptical 2 days per week  for 45 minutes Stairmaster 1 hour  - 1 day/week  - Arms- Free weights (5 lbs) 2 days/week  Sit-ups 2 days/week.

Take charge of losing your weight. Bounce back the next day after you eat junk food. Do not think!
Just put on your shoes and walk. Once you begin exercising five times a week, you will feel and look your best!

Ten Foods That Fight Fat & Prevent Hunger Spikes

as seen on Talk Philly CBS 3 August 3, 2010, Noon

  • Swiss cheese - calcium prevents release of a hormone that stores fat.
  • Apples - fiber and pectin lower cholesterol.
  • Berries - loaded with fiber, prevent insulin spikes, which lead to abdominal obesity.
  • Eggs - protein + fat = stay satisfied longer.
  • Sweet potatoes high in vitamin C, fiber, prevent hunger.
  • Salmon - omega 3 fats lower leptin (a hunger and metabolism hormone).
  • Lower leptin = burn more fat.
  • Oranges - citrus contains compounds to help you metabolize fat more quickly.
  • Almonds - high protein/healthy fat combo satisfies hunger.
  • Yogurt - Calcium intake suppresses certain hormones so your body stores less fat and breaks it down more easily.
