Are you looking to lose weight and in a hurry?
Do you have upcoming family pictures to take and are ashamed of your double chin?
How about that class reunion or wedding? Do you struggle with slipping on your dress or fitting into your tuxedo?
Luckily you aren’t alone and more importantly there is a solution!
If you’re a part of the large and growing percentage of people overweight or obsess in the world than this is nothing new to you. Your weight problem has existed and in some cases gotten worse over time. Shortcoming in reaching your weight loss goals have left you hopeless, confident-less, affect your relationships with other, finances, and for some your finances. All of which leaving you shaken, frustrated, and your personal health jeopardized.
Over time, I’ve conducted some research, experimented with a few options, and eventually tweaked some things to get to a point that I am comfortable and confident sharing with you. I think that both you and I can agree that any weight loss plan involves some change to at minimum one aspect of your life. The one I am most passionate about and want to share with you is your diet.
I’ve found a solution that is both easy-to-follow and results oriented. As you may have found out in another article I published, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It kick starts your energy levels and gets your metabolism moving at a very high rate which is good for weight loss. But aside from breakfast, have you though ahead to your next meal, at200deg.com? Maybe you have, maybe you haven’t either way here are some options for lunch that I really think you’ll enjoy.
In staying consistent with my promise to provide calorie cutting meal plans I thought it would be important to reintegrate my approach and thought process. My formula is simple and based on facts not speculation. For optimal results look to cut 100 calories or more per serving of at least one meal that is eaten three times a week. At that rate you stand to lose upward to around five pounds a year. Here is the plan (100 x 3 x 52=15,600 calories/5 pounds).
That figure only represents cutting 100 calories from one meal per week. Imagine if you applied this to two to three other meal a week or even better if you incorporated exercise into your diet? The results are endless!
Next to breakfast, lunch is the second most important meal of the day. A good lunch will boost your energy level and balance your metabolism to minimize spiking. Here are some options that I highly recommend that you try.
Roast beef sub sandwich
Eating smart and losing weight don’t have to mean a complete abandonment of some of your favorite foods. Meaty submarine sandwiches are no different. A six-inch lean roast beef sandwich accompanied with lettuce, tomatoes, and other toppings could mean a tasty sandwich with just only 264 calories and 4.5 grams of fat. Compared to a tuna salad sub, you’re looking at a savings of nearly 100 calories and 12 grams of fat.
For those interested in less hearty options, a tossed salad is an excellent choice. A green salad decorated in beans, fruit, or croutons is a terrific counter to highly fattening dressings. On average you may be looking at upwards in the range of cutting 100 calories and 28 grams of fat by following this simple plan. Grab a handful or so of green lettuce, 1 ounce of croutons and substitute a ½ cup of your favorite beans or fruit in place of an oil-based fatty dressing and there you go. Not only will you diversify your options but more importantly, you stand the chance of increasing your iron, Vitamin C, fiber, and folic acid intake.
Next to breakfast, lunch is the second most important meal of the day. This is no different for weight loss. Thinking smart and creating savory and healthy choices is the key to your success. As you’ve found out in this article there are several different easy-to-follow options that are light on the wallet and most importantly easy on your body. Now that you’ve identified some good lunch choices, dinner, desert, and snacks are next!
