Goodies for Your Diet
Timeless Nutrition Tip
Eat a cookie, lose an inch? Yes! Research now shows there is a host of formerly "forbidden" diet foods that could very well be your best diet allies. Good news, indeed! Here are the top foods and why they can help you on your diet:
Like peanuts, olive oil makes you feel satisfied longer, making it easier to stick to a fat-restricted diet. Suggestion: Roast your vegetables in olive oil at dinner and avoid the ice cream later!
Cereal: Regular cereal eaters take in more fiber and less fat overall than non-cereal eaters. Forget the bagels and/or French toast - grab a bowl of cereal, instead! (But watch the sugary ones, of course).
Chocolate Chip CookiesWhen you try not to eat all those foods you love, it is akin to trying not to breath! So have a chocolate chip cookie here and there.
It is now proven that avoiding deprivation of all good foods is more harmful to a diet than enjoying your favorite cookie or piece of candy here and there. Do try to keep your treat to 150 calories or less, however. (This is equal to two Chips Ahoy cookies).
