Night Snack

Lately, I have started eating a healthier snack at night and have been able to trim off some more fat from my body. The snack consists of spinach, walnuts and a glass of milk. The spinach only has 3 grams of carbohydrates (no sugar) and 2 grams of protein with no fat per serving size. Although, I eat less than one serving according to the package. The walnuts do have 19 grams of fat per serving, but only 2 of those grams of fat are saturated and there are no trans fats. The walnuts do give you 4 grams of protein and only 4 grams of carbohydrates with less than 1 gram of sugar per serving. I feel this is a big improvement over me eating cookies every night and I do think it is contributing to my fat loss.

  1. You have a great goal in mind. For one, organic doesn’t mean it will help you lose weight. There is organic sugar, which I do use, but refined sugar, organic sugar and refined flour all act the same, accumulating as fat on the body. What I have found to work for me (I hurt my knees and have not exercised in about 12 weeks but have altered my diet and have maintained my weight) is taking out/reducing the refined flours (such as bread, pasta, pizza), replacing them with whole grains (brown rice, bulgar, garbanzo beans, black beans, red beans, flax, etc.). One piece of bread a day is still fine, just be aware of where the majority of your calories are coming from pasta or meat or vegetables? The other is to replace refined sugar (high fructose corn syrup-read the label, sugar, cookies, muffins, breakfast bars, sweetened yogurt, etc.) with honey, limited brown sugar, fruit that has natural sugar, dried dates, etc. Start by gradually taking refined sugar/flour out with the goal of removing entirely from everyday diet; this may help you reach your goal. Basically, you need sugar in your diet, but just not the refined stuff (the history is that companies make more money on the processed stuff which has altered our mentality that this is normal in our diet). The resulting weight loss will come over time, not overnight. You will be healthier and feel better since a lot of the refined sugar causes headaches, depression, and just not feeling great. Also, changing your diet and liking it is hugely dependent on how you prepare your foods. Healthy food actually tastes better than the prepared stuff because it is not processed and it is fresh. The result is a satisfying fullness, less snacking, and giving your body the nutrients it is currently lacking. You will get sick less and reduce risk for cancers and other potential fatal disease conditions.Knowledge is key there are many false concepts and fads out there. Read for understanding and the weight loss will come naturally!

    • Honey can be good for you, but most honey is processed to a point where it is not good for you. If you eat it RAW and uncooked, unpasteurized, and right from the hive, it is good for you and contains lots of minerals, but it has lots of sugar in it, so eating lots of it is not good. Find a local bee keeper that does not heat his honey and has wild honey and buy that.good luck to you

  2. Always please take a healthy snack along to function or whenever you are out.
    By eliminating Gluten from my diet, we give our intestines a
    way to endure the injury Gluten previously caused. According to some study inside American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 85: 1465-1477, 2007, various diets produce short- term weight reduction, but long-term perseverance is harder.
