Yes, the WEIGHT BEAST Can Be Tamed
I hear it over and over from postmenopausal women: “I am heavier then ever and I just can't seem to lose weight.” Well, it may feel like that but the good news is that you CAN lose weight. It takes a different effort from when you were younger but you can drop those pounds, especially the ones around the waistline that increase your risk for heart disease, diabetes and cancer.The key: shop healthy (keep those unhealthy foods out of your shopping cart), cook healthy in lighter-calorie ways (less fat, for example), and consider keeping a food journal, at least for a few weeks, so you can identify the problem areas of your diet.Here is an idea to help with weight loss. Take a look at this shredded hash brown potatoes label. I found them in the refrigerated section of the supermarket. Just shredded potatoes – no salt added, no fat added.
Using these hash brown potatoes, here is an easy weekend breakfast recipe suggestion: Empty the entire bag of hash browns into a mixing bowl and toss them with 1 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar or mozzarella cheese. You can also add chopped onions and diced lean ham, if you wish. Spread evenly into a casserole dish coated with vegetable cooking spray. Stir together 1 cup egg substitutes (or 4 eggs) and 1 cup fat-free milk or evaporated milk. Pour the egg-milk mixture evenly over the potatoes and bake in pre-heated 350-degree oven for 60 minutes. VOILA!! A potato-egg casserole that can be available for a quick breakfast throughout the week. And we all know that eating breakfast helps with weight loss, getting the metabolism revved.
