I call it my easy peesy tips, that might be easy and probably even you know, that it is a major factor in you gaining immense amount of weight.
So the first one being, “Doing away with Fat”. Yeah, you heard that right!
And I’m pretty sure, you even know how detrimental it is for your health. You love your Mc.Tikki, the fries, those smileys, pastry and surely the cakes. Ever thought if they love you too??
The foods that we eat, already contain some fat of their own. Agreed, that some amount is important for the body’s insulation and as a cover for all organs of the body.
You can easily reduce the amount of oil in the diet by changing the way you cook.
- Steaming– It’s a very easy method to incorporate in daily life. Also, you get to eat yummy Idli’s, dhokla’s , custards, and cakes too(now I’m not recommending that you eat custards and cake too!!) It reduces your average fuel requirement too till an extent. Plus steamed foods are a bit healthier till an extent.
- Non-stick cooking– Using non-stick pans while cooking, reduces the need of using too much oil, butter or ghee. You still get yummy and healthy food to eat. But you need to take care of your non-stick utensils. Never put cold water on them immediately after using them, it will drastically remove the coating present on the pan. If taken care of, they easily last 6-7 years.
- Grilling– It is a very interesting method and you actually don’t need oil for it. The product will come out really crispy and properly cooked. You can grill your sandwiches, chicken, paneer and what not!
There are a lot of other methods too, that would help in reducing the amount of oil being used at home. The best one is you yourself measuring the amount of oil you are putting in any food that is being cooked. Frankly even ½ tsp. of oil is enough for cooking.
When on a weight loss spree and trying to lose weight, and frankly it’s not even losing weight, it’s about eating healthy, and choosing foods that heal you. Do away with your mac and cheese, fries and burgers.
You become what you eat, choose wisely!
