Yes yo can cheat your way to being skinny. I don’t know about you but I cannot always eat perfectly. Yes, I do give into temptation. And when most people are told that they cannot eat something that makes them crave it even more.
So on our medical weight loss program our philosophy is a little bit of everything is okay.
So with that being said you can have your starchy carbohydrates and fruit along with your proteins and vegetables and good healthy fats.
But we do have to remember to follow eat certain portion sizes. But sometimes you just have to let go. You can see in the picture posted in this article the dinner I had this past Friday night. We ordered take-out pizza and Italian antipasto.
Now most medical weight loss programs would totally forbid you from having pizza but I believe in keeping our weight loss program real.
So what I did is; I enjoyed my pizza along with an Antipasto that had tons of delicious leafy green vegetables in it along with some sharp provolone cheese and Italian meats.
I just piled all of this salad and cheese and Italian meat on my pizza and I folded it together and totally enjoyed. What I tell most of our patients is that if you are going to have a cheat meal like this, just make sure that you are going to eat something conducive to weight loss as well.
And there is nothing more conducive to weight loss then leafy green vegetables and cruciferous vegetables. Even though this delicious slice of pizza might not be considered weight loss or diet food when I added all of the leafy green vegetables to it, it’s not totally bad for you.
From now on when you are eating something that is not so good for weight loss just make sure to get counterbalance it with something that is good for weight loss like vegetables.
Not only are vegetables packed with nutrition they also act as an internal broom for your body. They will sweep out and flush your body all of the bad stuff you ate that day.
So make sure to eat your veggies especially your leafy green vegetables and your cruciferous vegetables because they are the most optimal foods that you can eat for losing weight.
