We always make a series of mistakes that lead us to continue accumulating extra kilos in a silly way
Now that most of us cook and eat at home with this coronavirus thing, it's time to start getting it right. Either because we want to get rid of a few kilos of fat and lose weight or because we simply want to eat healthier, it is important that we learn cooking tricks so as not to add extra calories to our dishes.
Today we bring you a few, very easy to follow and very tasty to taste.
1) Bake whenever you can
Forget about the grill and frying. What nutritionists recommend, especially for dinner (when our metabolism is already tired and it works slower), is to eat grilled food, especially because it will not only be healthy, but that way we control the amount of olive oil we use.
2) Make sandwiches and open sandwiches
The sandwich and / or the sandwich are a stimulant, medium healthy, that serves us for any meal of the day and at any time. It is easy to prepare, tasty and filling. The problem is bread, which gives us extra calories and hardly any nutrients.
So a valuable trick is to remove the top slice of the sandwich. Silly, for each one you eat you will be subtracting more than a hundred calories, be careful.
3) Double the veggies
Eating healthy does not mean eating only salads and water. In fact, you can enjoy homemade pizzas, burgers, and pastas as long as you cook them well. Therefore, experts recommend that you add a generous helping of vegetables to all of this. This way you will not only subtract calories from other fatter and less healthy foods, but you will be satisfied sooner without having the feeling that you are on a diet or controlling.
4) Add chia seeds
Adding chia seeds to your dishes, whenever appropriate, is a great trick to lose weight. Don't you know what we're talking about?
The chia belongs to the mint family and is Mexico. Chia seeds are consumed as whole grains, but they are a pseudo grain. That means they are the carbohydrate-rich seeds of a grassless plant. When chia seeds are mixed with liquid, they expand and form a kind of thick gel. Therefore, if we consume them mixed with water, they will increase in volume in the stomach, which will make us more satiated and, therefore, eat less.
Also, chia seeds are high in fiber. About two tablespoons contain ten grams of fiber, 40% of the recommended daily intake. In this regard, numerous studies have linked fiber to weight loss, such as this one from 2015.
Be careful, although chia works to lose weight, you have to be careful with the amounts, because two tablespoons have 138 calories and 9 grams of fat, so you have to use it and consume it in moderation, to see if the remedy is going to be worse than the disease.
5) Leave the skins
There are people who are in the habit of peeling fruits and vegetables, when in fact it is better not to do so, since the skin provides a significant amount of nutrients.
In addition, the skin, in the case of most fruits, contains a higher concentration of fiber, essential for weight loss as well as for a proper functioning of the digestive system. Fiber, in addition to increasing the feeling of satiety, makes the bile more soluble and regulates cholesterol and glucose in the blood. All advantages, reader.
