Eating Light 400 Calories or Less


Two months have gone by, have you kept true to your New Year's resolutions? I am always looking for ways to make better choices while trying to loose the baby weight. Recipes for healthy cooking can sometimes be challenging. Eating Light 400 Calories or Less is a bookazine that can help you achieve your goal or get back on track with light and healthy recipes that are easy to prepare.


Eating Light is loaded with research-backed dieting tips, slender choices for dining out, and satisfying recipes designed to help you stay on track, all developed and tested by the editors ofGood Housekeeping, Redbook, and Country Living. One tip that I need over and over again is the "drink more water" reminder. Why is it that we know drinking water helps to lose weight but sometimes we forget this simple little trick?

Recipes are broken down by season to draw upon fresh ingredients, so you can eat what you crave while being kind to your waistline. Here is a sampling of light choices through the seasons:

Winter recipes like Low-Fat Lasagna (pg. 33) and Chicken Pot Pie (pg. 42) satisfy cravings for comfort food, while spring ideas like Basil Orange Chicken (48) and Grilled Swordfish Kabobs with Parsley-Olive Salsa (pg. 57) make use of seasonal herbs.

Summer is grilling season, so you'll want to whip up Bacon-Wrapped Scallops (pg. 69) and Grilled Flank Steak with Corn Relish (pg. 80). Finally, transition to autumn with Fusilli with Veal, Squash & Sage (pg. 106) and Cranberry Turkey Cutlets (pg. 99).

With easy to read recipes, it makes it possible to have scrumptious choices all while sticking to your diet.

Eating Light 400 Calories or Less provides 52 tips --one for every week of the year --that will help you make healthy choices in the months to come. With advice on ordering skinny meals at restaurants, choosing beverages wisely, and blasting belly fat (try green tea, healthy fats, and purple foods!), Eating Light has you covered. Plus, a slim-down plan indicates how many calories you should consume at each meal, so you'??ll drop extra pounds safely and confidently.
