How to Transform Your Meals for Weight Loss

How to Transform Your Meals for Weight Loss

Trivia Question: What’s the biggest complaint among dieters? Have a guess? The answer is feeling hungry. People want to lose weight, but they hate that growling in their stomach. Especially as they try to savor tiny plates of celery.

Another big complaint is saying goodbye to favorite foods. Weight loss is like a boarding school, and your diet is the bus that takes you away. As you pull out, you mournfully wave goodbye to your friends. Trusty old Cheeseburger and sweet Chocolate Cake shrink slowly in the rearview.

No wonder so many people turn the bus around. If you want to lose weight for good, you need a lifestyle you can stick with. And who wants to waste their life eating small portions of tasteless food?

Here’s a better way to lose weight

What if you could keep your favorite foods? What if you could eat a full plate and still lose weight?

Ummmm, you can. You just need to Power Up your meals!

Here’s how…
Beef burrito power up Meal #1 is 2 beef burritos with cheese. That’s 2 grams of fiber and 942 calories. But see what happens when we power this meal up with fiber-rich Full Plate Superfoods. We now have 1 beef burrito. Instead of cheese, we flavor it with 2 tbs of guacamole, 2 tbs of salsa, and 1 cup of shredded lettuce. We’ve also added ½ cup of cooked brown rice, ½ cup of fat free refried beans, and ½ cup of fresh pineapple chunks. Instead of 2 grams of fiber, we have 13. And instead of 942 calories, we have 675. Wow.

The foods we’ve added are called Full Plate Superfoods. They can fill you up and still help you lose weight because they’re naturally lower calorie foods. The basic principle here is to fill most of your plate with Superfoods and save the rest for old favorites.

If you transform your meals, you can transform your body. And if you transform your body, you can transform your life.
