Creating Fit & Tasty Meals to Change Your Views on Healthy Eating

I believe the most important difference between this time and all of the failed weight-loss attempts of my past is the change in my views on health and fitness.

I believe the most important difference between this time and all of the failed weight-loss attempts of my past is the change in my views on health and fitness.

In the past, I viewed healthy eating as a short-term plan for weight loss. It served no other practical purpose in my life. My food choices were based on taste. I never felt motivated to focus on eating for my health.


This time, I accepted the fact that if I wanted to change my weight forever, I would have to change my eating habits forever. This was not a diet. I was creating a healthier lifestyle. I started slow and I gradually began to consider both taste and nutritional value in my food choices.

I finally made the connection! The food that I eat has a direct effect on my health!

This may also be common sense for some people. To be honest, I believe that even I would have answered that question correctly on a quiz. But when it came to real life application, I was failing miserably. So, I decided I would have to find and create foods that are high in both flavor and nutritional value.

I began creating fit and tasty recipe alternatives for my some of my favorite fattening foods.  I love pizza, and I have learned to create it in a very fit and tasty way. Click here for my fit and tasty pizza recipes!

Begin to believe that healthy food can taste great! I love my fit and tasty recipes, and I hope you enjoy them too!

Remember the food choices you make today have a direct effect on both your results and health tomorrow. Use this knowledge to provide motivation to make healthier choices today and power to create a healthier tomorrow.

I no longer view making healthy food choices and exercising to improve my health as hardships. Instead, I now view these things as logical and beneficial actions, just like taking a bath or brushing my teeth and hair.

It worked for me and it can work for YOU!

Fat substitutes are compounds that resemble the chemical and physical properties of certain fats and oils and are often used to replace conventional fats (butter, oil) in baking and frying. They can help bring calorie counts down.

But fat substitutes are almost like secret ingredients that hide in plain sight, says Mark Schatzker, author of the upcoming book "The End of Craving: Recovering the Lost Wisdom of Eating Well."
