Remember That Fat Lasts Longer Than Flavor

fat lasts longer than flavorWere you intrigued by the title of this article – fat lasts longer than flavor? Maybe you have recently been thinking about changing some of your eating habits but have had trouble avoiding the fast food splurges or excessive restaurant portions served on those enormous plates. This is why it is so important to remember that fat lasts a lot longer than flavor.

Take it from someone who used to weigh nearly 300 pounds and get most of his meals from fast food spots. I knew for a long time that I was eating in an unhealthy manner but I never did anything to resolve this issue until recently.

Now that I’ve changed my eating habits, I realize now how detrimental my nutrition was. One truth that I’ve committed to memory is the fact that fat lasts longer than flavor. When you come to terms with this statement, and ignore the temptations to devour a gluttonous 1500+ calorie meal, then you will truly make progress towards your weight loss goal.

Isn’t It About Time For Healthy Food?

time for healthy foodIf you’re sick and tired of being overweight and truly want to remedy the situation, then it’s time for healthy food. If your diet has consisted of either an enormous amount of fast food or excessive portion sizes at home-cooked meals, this is the area you need to address first in an effort to get things turned around and moving in a more positive direction.

One of the most difficult things about being successful with transitioning over to healthy nutrition is because your body/mind will put up some resistance. That fast food tastes the way it does because they want you coming back over and over again. Your body has gotten used to eating a certain amount of food until it is full. It will take effort on your part to be willing to reduce your portion sizes at meals to one that is an appropriate, healthy amount.

Healthy Meal of the Week 2 With Healthy Leftover Idea

healthy meal of the week 2
Healthy Meal: Ribs, Mixed Vegetables, and a Salad
Healthy Leftover Idea: Rib Quesadilla

I love ribs! It would be a shame if they were not allowed to be included in the meal repertoire once in a while. If you are a fan of ribs, here’s an easy way to do just that. As long as you maintain an appropriate portion size like described below you will end up with a meal under 400 calories with ribs included!

This idea started out when I stumbled across a pack of Tony Roma’s ribs on sale at my local supermarket for only $5. The nutritional guide on the back advised me of the three portions within totaling 330 calories per serving but I was going to improve that a bit before dishing out the food.

Instead of three portions from this rather large-sized rack of ribs, I divided the entire package into 4 equal portions which in turn brought the calorie amount down per serving to only 247 each. Much better!
