Breakfasts That Fight Fat

Breakfasts That Fight Fat

Healthy recipes for breakfast that fight fat and keep you fuller longer.

Eating a breakfast made with “slow-release” carbohydrates, such as oatmeal or bran cereal, 3 hours before you exercise may help you burn more fat, suggests a recent study in the Journal of Nutrition. Here’s why: in the study eating “slow-release” carbohydrates didn’t spike blood sugar as high as eating refined carbohydrates, such as white toast. In turn, insulin levels didn’t spike as high and because insulin plays a role in signaling your body to store fat, having lower levels may help you burn fat. Not in the mood for oatmeal? Here are some delicious recipes to help you fight fat. Download a Free Quick Breakfast Cookbook!

My husband, Dan, has been charged with a mission: he has to lose 15 pounds in three months or the doctor ups his blood pressure medication. (Get a 28-day meal plan of delicious diet recipes for a skinnier you.)

Last week I blogged about what to eat right now for better breast health. I received a lot of comments—and concerns—from readers, mostly on the topic of soy. A few months ago, I too started wondering about the connection between soy and breast health. Soy is touted as a food that can prevent breast cancer—and also implicated as one that might promote it.

Just last week I posted a blog on Guiltless Indulgences: Six 100-Calorie Desserts,” with diet-friendly versions of S’mores and more yummy treats. And for as many readers who loved the recipes as much as I do, there were a handful of people who wished I had included desserts that didn’t contain any added sugar.

If I was stranded on a desert island and could eat only one food for the rest of my life, it would have to be potatoes. I never get tired of them. Apparently, neither does Oprah Winfrey. She’s been quoted as saying, “My idea of heaven is a great big baked potato and someone to share it with.”

In my house, fall means football. I grew up watching games on the weekends with my football-loving father, went to a big football college (yeah Penn State!) and married a guy who loves the game. On the weekends we invite our friends and their kids over to watch games and we make lots of yummy tailgating snacks for the crowd. (Find 36 healthy tailgating recipes for apps, drinks and more.)

When it comes to weight loss, it’s always the last few pounds that are the hardest, right? At least, that’s how it’s going for me. I want to be choosier about how much and what I eat, but I don’t have time to count calories. So I’m going to take the deliciously easy way out by using this yummy 28-day diet meal plan. That’s about the level of effort I can make at this point, and as a bonus I know I’ll be eating really delicious recipes so I won’t be tempted to cheat.

Whenever I see ground beef on sale, I stock up. Knowing I have a few packages stashed away in my freezer helps solve the nightly question of “What’s for dinner?” I just pull out some ground beef the night before I plan to use it and let it defrost in my refrigerator. When I get home from work the next day I can cook up any of these delicious recipes using ground beef in 45 minutes or less. Bonus: they’re all $3 or less per serving.

What's your favorite ground beef recipe? OR What do you stock-up on when it's on sale?
