I practically live on low calorie, you just have to check out the nutrition facts, usually if you buy wheat pastas, cereals and breads, they would be low cal. Also be sure that every meat like ham says ...% fat free, and do the same with salad dressings. Cutting out juice and drinking water instead helps cut a lot of calories out, but be sure to eat fruit instead of unhealthy snacks like chips or candy. Also try to reduce the portions of carbs to a more moderate amount, like 3/4 of a cup for lunch and 1/2 a cup for dinner and if you would eat fruits for breakfast it would be much better. If not than try to eat cereal. You should start doing some exercise, but if you don't want to, try not to be sitting all day and move between comercials and like every half hour if you are reading or in the computer. Best of Luck!!!

Starting the day with a high fiber breakfast cereal kick starts the metabolism. Try finding cereals with 20% or more RDA of fiber. As a rule these cereals have less than 10 grams of sugar as well. A double benefit. Oatmeal with blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, or raspberries works too. Fresh or frozen only. No syrup.

Cooking style is the thing to consider. No frying, no saute in butter. Look for steamed, grilled, or wok. Lots of websites are dedicated to healthy eating, there are many on my resource page. Or check out the recipes here that list "healthy" next to them and stay away from the ones that say "Big Splurge"! http://www.romance-recipe.com/Recipes.html

Mollie you should get a lot of healthy food ideas from all of these sites i given you.And good luck in changing your eating habits. ---------------------------------------... Healthy Food Ideas http://www.livestrong.com/healthy-food-i... ***************************************... Healthy Recipes, Healthy Eating, Healthy Cooking =======================================... Top Fall Vegetables to Keep in Your Kitchen 1. Broccoli Studies at Johns Hopkins University have shown that compounds in broccoli, rich in antioxidants, may be beneficial in fighting stomach cancer and ulcers. Though raw broccoli offers the most health benefits, quick cooking preserves its sweet crunch and many of its nutrients. Health Benefits: Broccoli is an excellent source of vitamins C, K and A, folate and fiber. Shopping Tip: A head of broccoli is composed of a large stalk branching out into several smaller stalks, containing hundreds of florets. Large supermarkets usually sell full heads of broccoli, broccoli crowns (which have most of the stem removed) and florets. Look for sturdy, dark green spears with tight buds and no yellowing. Storage Tip: Broccoli will stay fresh in the refrigerator for at least a week. If the florets start to look dry, wrap the head in damp paper towels. ***************************************... 2. Cabbage Crunchy and versatile, cabbage is more than just the base for your backyard-barbecue coleslaw. It adds texture to a tossed salad, makes a great topping for your taco and, when sauteed with apples and bacon, is the perfect accompaniment to roast pork. Health Benefits: Like most of its Brassica relatives, cabbage is full of health benefits. Rich in vitamin C and fiber, it also supplies isothiocyanates—chemicals that amp up the body’s natural detoxification systems. Studies suggest that cabbage may help fight breast, lung, colon and other types of cancer. Shopping Tip: Choose the right cabbage for the recipe. Hard white (a.k.a. green) cabbage and red cabbage are delicious raw in coleslaw or cooked in soups, stews and sautés. Mildly flavored, delicate napa (Chinese) cabbage, with ruffled leaves and white ribs, is widely used in Asian cooking. Try it shredded in salads, quick-cooked in stir-fries or slow-cooked in soups or stews. Savoy cabbage is a loosely packed, wrinkled cousin of common green cabbage. It’s our favorite choice for cabbage rolls and is sturdy enough for roasting. Storage Tip: Refrigerate cabbage for up to 1 week. ***************************************... 3. Chard Earthy and sweet, chard has more substance than spinach. It’s easy to find and its colorful incarnations can be used interchangeably (though green chard tends to be mildest). Health Benefits: Chard abounds in phytochemicals that have been shown to help prevent various types of cancers, maintain healthy eyes and may even protect the heart. As for essential nutrients, a 1/2-cup serving of cooked chard provides over 300 percent of the daily value (DV) of vitamin K and 100 percent DV of vitamin A. It is also a good source of vitamin C, magnesium and potassium. Shopping Tip: Rainbow chard, white or green chard and ruby or red chard are the most common varieties available. Look for fresh, crisp, brightly colored greens; avoid those that are wilted or blemished. Storage Tip: Wrap the stem ends in damp paper towels and refrigerate in a plastic bag for up to a week, depending on the freshness of the chard when it was purchased. http://www.eatingwell.com/healthy_cookin... ***************************************... 8 Ways to Eat Like a Mediterranean http://www.eatingwell.com/healthy_cookin... ***************************************... http://www.eatingwell.com/
