Eat to Lose Weight
Did you know that losing weight can be as simple as eating a handful of nuts before your meal? Here’s why: that little bit of fat helps to slow down digestion before a starchy meal and keeps your blood sugar from spiking which, in turn, helps your body to use fat more efficiently instead of storing it around your middle. So, the next time you’re sitting down to eat a starchy dinner like pasta, try eating one of these small fatty snacks 10 to 30 minutes before: a handful of nuts, a slice of cheese, a tablespoon of peanut butter on a piece on celery, one hard-boiled egg, or one teaspoon of olive oil on a small piece of bread. Remember to keep the snack small and portion controlled.
