the author of The Best Life Diet
visited the Oprah show and shared some of his awesome dieting pointers. The pointers include ways to curb your appetite, a grocery list plan, and a yummy recipe!
Eight Ways to Curb Your Appetite:
- Eat every three to four hours.
Your blood sugar won’t have a chance to drop so low that you get famished and then binge.
- Load up on foods high in fiber and water.
They’ll keep you full at a low-calorie cost.
Make every meal and snack a combination of protein, fiber-rich carbs and fat.
With these three building blocks in your menu, you can buy an extra hour of satiety. For example, if you eat a salad with no dressing, you’ll just be hungry again.
Wait 20 minutes before having seconds or another course.
That’s how long it takes for your brain to receive the “full” signal. If you’re in a restaurant, go somewhere else for dessert—by the time you get there, chances are you won’t even want it.
Avoid being around food when it’s not time to eat.
We are programmed to react to the sight and smell of anything edible by wanting to consume it. So get it out of your house and walk right by that bakery.
Get some exercise.
Some overeaters may have fewer pleasure receptors, which is why it takes more food for them to get the same satisfaction others get from eating less. Research, meanwhile, suggests that physical activity increases the brain’s receptors for pleasure chemicals.
Try to resolve emotional issues that trigger you to eat.
Find alternatives to eating that make you feel good, such as talking to friends, listening to music or planning a vacation.
Go to bed.
Research has suggested a link between not getting enough sleep and being overweight. Good shut-eye helps prevent the disruption of some of the hormones that control appetite.
Also, Here is an original Bob Green Recipe:
Fire Roasted Tomato-Shrimp Veracruz
The 15 minutes it takes to prepare this dish belie its complex flavors. The surprising taste comes from a mix of jalapeño, thyme and orange peel. Serve over brown rice or whole wheat couscous.
- 1 Tbsp. olive oil
- 1 pound medium raw shrimp, shelled and deveined, tails removed (if desired)
- 4 medium green onions, sliced (about 1/4 cup)
- 1 medium fresh jalapeño or serrano chile, stemmed, seeded and finely chopped
- 1 tsp. grated orange zest
- 1 tsp. chopped fresh thyme leaves or 1/2 tsp. dried thyme leaves
- 1 14 1/2-oz. can fire-roasted diced tomatoes, undrained. (If fire-roasted tomatoes are unavailable, use regular canned diced tomatoes.)
In a 12-inch skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Cook the shrimp, green onions, chile, orange zest and thyme in the oil for 1 minute, stirring frequently.
Stir in the tomatoes. Heat the mixture until it boils. Reduce the heat; simmer, uncovered, for about 5 minutes, or until shrimp are pink and firm and sauce is slightly thickened, stirring occasionally. Serves 4.
