IT is recommended that persons seeking to lose weight burn between 1400-1600 calories daily. What many persons don't know is how to regulate those calories through the food they eat.
Breakfast - breakfast helps to build metabolism so people need a heavy breakfast to get them started each day.
* 2 egg white omelet
*2 slices wholewheat bread
*6 oz fruit juice
Snack - It is important that people consume snacks every two hours between major meals. This helps with the 'munchies' as well as with keeping delinquent weight watchers on track. Try to stay away from sugary snacks.
*1 cup low fat yogurt
Lunch - This is when people are allowed their intake of carbohydrate and starch. The recommended portions are only a guide but one should always stay away from rice.
*roast beef sandwich
*2 slices of wholeweat bread
*2 slices of tomato
*2 leaves of lettuce
Dinner - Dinner should be light because after certain hours the body's metabolism starts to slow down. You don't want anything too heavy at this point.
*chicken, tuna, salmon
