As requested, this will be the one that will have THE MOST IMPORTANT SECRET REVEALED! Here I am giving out what nutritionists earn on, for you to take, use and get lean fo life! The easiest way to be lean for life, it does not get any easier and if you believe in ‘Magic Beans’ -well, I guess, here they are!
Food that you can eat as much as you want without putting on any fat! Experiment, combine, try new recipes – work with this foods and you will not believe how they will work for you. Are you ready? Here are 7 groups of food for you to be lean for life and never to worry about your diet again!
This includes – Lean Beef, Chicken Breasts, Turkey
N/B: This may not be an exhaustive list, the tip is: lean meat, which has no fat, skinless). Watch out what you cook it with, frying chicken in lots of oil and having it with ketchup may not be the best idea, instead, bake it.
This includes – Any white fish (cod, sea bass, haddock etc), salmon, tuna, prawns, mussels, scallops etc.
N/B: Any seafood or fish is good, it is full of proteins and good fat. Again, watch out what you make it with, baking, steaming, making a soup – best idea. And as much as we love mussels in white wine and cream sauce – those two will turn your perfectly diet meal into a fat+callories bomb.
This includes – Cucumbers, green beans, broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, cabbage, lettuce, celery, celeriac, asparagus, mushrooms, zucchini
N/B: Not an exhaustive list, again. There are so many green/white veggies out there and they are all so delicious. Boil, steam, bake, combine, mash (no, potatoes are not in this list, even sweet one), make salads, sides, mains.
4.Low Sugar Berries and Fruits
This includes – Strawberry, Grapefruit, Raspberry, Blackberry, Green Apple, Kiwi, Pineapple
N/B: the only group from the list where I would recommend to not go over the top. Make fruit salads, smoothies, eat as a snack – fruits need no further instructions, we all love them.
This includes – Low Fat Plain/Greek Yoghurt, Cottage Cheese, Kefir, Tofu, Eggs
N/B: Lesson learned by me over and over again when doing people’s meal plans – brits do not like cottage cheese 🙂 Which is a shame cause you can make lean cheesecakes with it and even just adding it to your smoothie or protein shake blend will boost your protein intake to the sky! I would also suggest choosing Eastern European cottage cheese called Tworog , it has more protein and you can still mix it with plain yoghurt to give it a smooth texture. Kefir, also hated by brits, is another Easter European product, it is great to have before bed, helps digestion. Maybe that is why Eastern European girls are mostly skinny 😉 Finally, tofu – firm tofu usually has more protein…that’s all you need to know.
6.Taste Buds Satisfiers
This includes – Spices like paprika, curry etc. Chilli ,Dill, Parsley, Coriander and so on.
N/B: Watch out for salt; Spicy food is good for boosting metabolism.
