I’m Eating Right, But Still Can’t Lose Weight…
Belly Blasting Weight Loss Recipes and Motivation to Help you Stay on Course!
You can lose weight incorporating these high taste, low fat recipes into your weight loss diet as long as you make sure to eat only one portion size. Eating right is half the way to win the battle and the other 50% is through exercise. I’ve seen some claims that food is 80% of weight loss, but this simply is not true, especially after 40. To speed up your metabolism and weight loss, you must exercise. No ands, ifs or buts. Exercise daily and you will be rewarded with weight loss, good health, lower health care costs, and a happier life.
Oven Fried Chicken
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
- 1 package of skinless chicken legs rinsed in very cold water
- 1 sandwich bag
- 1 cup (crushed) corn flakes
- ½ cup flour
- Season corn flake/flour mixture with onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper to your taste.
- Arrange on a cookie sheet tray. Give the chicken a spritz of the olive oil cooking spray. This will help brown and crisp up the coating.
- Place on the lower rack of the oven and bake until the chicken is golden and crisp. Cook for 20 minutes on one side, turn and cook for another 20 minutes. The temperature should register 160 F when fully cooked.
- Transfer to a serving platter and enjoy!
1 piece of chicken is 86 calories.
Oven Fried French Fries
- 2 large baking potatoes (about 1 1/2 pounds), scrubbed well
- Olive oil cooking spray
- Salt to taste
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
- Pat the potatoes dry and cut them lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Turn each slice flat and slice again lengthwise into even 1/2-inch-thick fries.
- Place the potatoes to a large baking sheet and arrange them in one even layer. Turn them over halfway through, until golden brown and crispy, about 20 minutes each side.
