What to Eat to Eat Less

davidgregory.org
Eat to eat less? Sounds good, doesn't it? And it's true. Here are tips on what to eat less by eating.

1. Eat beans

Beans are high in protein and fibers. Thus, they're slow to digest. They stay longer in the tummy making you feel full longer, and thus eating less.

2. Take Soups

Before you eat the main meal, try taking a cup or two of soup--and choose those with low calories. Thus, before you go to the main course, your tummy already feels full. That's fooling your tummy.

3. Eat Dark Chocolate

A small square or two of your favorite dark chocolate can help you lessen food intake during meals. The trick is to eat it just before meals. It's was noted to help lessen eating by 15 percent in one study.

4. Add Pureed Veggies

Add pureed vegetables to your food to cheat your tummy into "thinking" it's full. Add them to your burgers, meat dishes, fillets, and others. What I often do is add cabbage or turnips sliced super thin into spring rolls or other roll dishes.



5. More Protein

Eating protein rich food in the morning helps a lot to make snacks less appealing the rest of the day. In fact, with enough protein in the morning, you'd probably eat less during lunch and supper. So, load up with eggs, tofu, lean meat and milk in the morning together with your limited rice or bread.

6. Eat Fruits

Before meals, eat generous portions of various fruits--apples, bananas, mangoes, etc. This loads your tummy with safe carbs so that little space is left in your tummy for the main course.

HOW HEALTHY IS BANANA CUE? For Banana Lovers Like Me

If you're a banana lover like me, you probably love eating banana cue and turon as well. Banana cue is dip frying "saba" or cardava banana rolled in brown sugar. Turon, on the other hand, is "saba" or cardava banana wrapped in egg-roll wrapper, the type used for spring rolls, sprinkled with brown sugar. Sometimes, they even put slices of langka or jackfruit in it. SM Save More outlets sellthem for only P15 per big piece.

Anyway, if you eat these cooked bananas, what health benefit do you get? Do you get all the health benefits bananas give?

Cooked bananas give you dietary fibers, nothing more, nothing less. Well, you also get some carbohydrates from the brown sugar and fat from the cooking oil. By the way, included here is sweetened "saba" which is banana boiled in water with brown sugar and sometimes added with vanilla extract. At least with this, you eliminate cooking oil.

Bananas are supposed to be super healthy with lots of vitamins and minerals …

HEALTH BENEFITS OF PATOLA: Don't Judge a Veggie by It's Rough Look

"Pulis patola" is a term popularized in Filipino movies on supposedly lousy cops. It denotes an inept policeman trained in a far-flung province where cops know nothing except probably to eat and sleep. But in the Filipino movies, the rustic "patola" cop turns out to be a good and skillful cop who manages to ruin a powerful syndicate singlehandedly.

Thus, "patola" or sponge gourd is a common rough-looking vegetable almost nobody pays attention to (some even smirks at the sigh to fit) and considered low class vegetable. Why "sponge" gourd? The core of the fruit looks like crude sponge, but it sure doesn't taste like one. Patola is  often mixed in soups, especially plain and ordinary miswa soup to add some sweet flavor to it. It's also cheap--just perfect for anyone aiming for health and fitness with middle income budget.

Here are some of its health benefits:
It's low in calories. If you're trying to lose weight, eat more of this to …

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…
