Cheat With These

May 28th, 2007 · No Comments ·


Just like you, I need to unleash my appetite once a week and stuff myself until “full-full”, not recommended for weight loss diet. To ensure myself not feeling guilty and bloated after a big meal, I choose eating large amount of foods that are high-fiber, low-fat, vitamins and minerals sufficient, and have lean protein. Yes, I am telling you that you are allowed to be a kid again and gorge down as much food as you wish once a week, but just make sure you are “cheating” with nutritional foods.

  • Tumaro’s green onion tortilla wraps with smoked salmon, grilled red bell peppers, fresh basil omelets, Dijon mustard, and part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • Grilled plum tomatoes sauteed with black pepper and dried oregano leaves
  • Pan-seared (with cooking spray) mushroom sauteed with black pepper
  • Oatmeal with skim milk and cinnamon powder
  • Fruit salad: pineapples, cantaloupe, grapes, and kiwis
  • Beverages: Skim milk and coffee (I prefer black coffee by the way. Can you imagine the amount of sugar one consumes even if he puts only one teaspoon of sugar for every cup of coffee? That’s at least 365 teaspoons of sugar a year from drinking just a cup a day!)

Enjoy the Memorial Day cheat meal and be ready to work tomorrow!
