To Lose Weight-Eat Water

Published by at 2:33 pm under Uncategorized


Pork Chop Dinner with broccoli and mushrooms

Foods that have a high water content—fruit, vegetables, yogurt, milk, soup, and so on—weigh more, but the weight comes from water, not calories. Research conducted by Barbara Rolls at Penn State University suggests that over the course of a day we eat about two to three pounds of food. When we eat foods that weigh more but have fewer calories we feel full, and this makes staying on a diet much easier. For example, compare the calories in one pound of the following foods: apples, 260 calories; bread, 1,120 calories; beef, 1,132 calories; and broccoli, 128 calories. To use water to your dieting advantage you simply add fruit and vegetables to every meal.  The simple way to do this at meals is to fill half your plate with vegetables.

    Hiya! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when browsing from my apple iphone. I’m
    trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to correct this issue.
    If you have any suggestions, please share. Many thanks!
