How To Cut Down On Your Calorie Consumption

Aug 15, 2008
Many are concern as from where their calories come from.Basically, if we eat the same number of calories that we burn and if we're only talking about weight, the answer is no - a calorie is a calorie. A protein calorie is no different from a fat calorie - they are simply units of energy. As long as you burn what you eat, you will maintain your weight -as long as you burn more than you eat, you'll lose weight.You can cut down your calorie consumption substantially merely by preparing your meals along these lines :

Valuable for protein and Vitamin B1 nuts are also rich in fats and rank as concentrated, high-calorie foods. Best to forget about them if you want to reduce, for a couple Brazil nuts equal about five servings of boiled cabbage.

Fruit Juices
Fruit juices in general are excellent sources of Vitamin C; tomato juice has the additional advantage of being a good source of Vitamin A as well. Carbonated drinks (except a few rare ones that may contain slight amounts of fruit pulp) are made from soda water and heavy syrups, contributing no vitamins, nothing but carbohydrate calories. A typical 12-ounce bottle of soda pop contains the equivalent of 6 teaspoons of sugar.

Using Your Cook Book
If you are your own cook you can probably persuade yourself to follow your own advice with a minimum of ill-feeling. If someone else does your cooking, however, you may have to speak softly but carry a big stick.

You have probably been struck by the fact that reducing diets look ample enough to satisfy a generous appetite. So they are. But the foods must all be prepared in the simplest way possible

The trouble with a good cook (aside from the quality immortalized by Saki in his remark: "She was a good cook, as cooks go, and as cooks go, she went") is her deep-grained habit of cozening the customer's appetite with three-decker confections, pastries that melt in your mouth, and rich sauces of la Escoffier. Hunger and appetite are two different things. You can be hungry and have no appetite, as after a four-day fast. And you can have an appetite when you aren't hungry, as when you're tempted by an extra serving of shortcake.

The Food Laws
1.Foods may be boiled, broiled, roasted or baked, but not fried. Butter, fat and cream are to be used in cooking only in extremely limited amounts or better yet, not at all. White butter is to be served soft; it spreads more easily and goes farther.

2.As far as possible, eliminate sugar in preparing foods. Saccharin may be substituted as a beverage sweetener in moderate amounts.

3.Serve some raw foods every day, usually as salads, but allow no mayonnaise or fancy dressings. Vinegar, which has no food value, is permitted, or lemon juice, valuable for Vitamin C. Not all digestions, however, can tolerate large amounts of raw foods, so be moderate.

4.If desired, a mineral oil dressing of negligible calorie value may be prepared according to this approximate formula: I cup mineral oil,half cup vinegar, 1 egg (can be omitted), condiments: teaspoon of salt, teaspoon of mustard, pepper, teaspoon of paprika, garlic if desired.The disadvantage of mineral oil dressing in the light of recent findings that it prevents absorption of much Vitamin A in the carotene form in which it occurs in plant foods has already been commented on. If you use mineral oil dressing, it is advisable to take a Vitamin A concentrate.
