I need to lose weight! And I have decided you share my journey with you! Share my African weight lost recipes with the world… Before having a baby, I weighted 76kg for 174cm… wore a size M (or big S)…lol… now I weight almost 100 kg (hahahahaha), wear size L. Let’s do the math (100-76) kg = 24kg…Big number!!!
You know how some people gain weight, and the actually look hot? It’s not the case here! I gain weight in my upper body!!! Doesn’t look good, specially my stomach. A friend asked me if I was pregnant. I wasn’t even mad at him, he was right. I need to lose the weight.
I can’t give up African food! So I’M GOING TO TRY to adjust the recipes, to help lose weight. Leafy vegetables (kale, collard, spinach, Jutes leaves, chard and other dark green vegetables are nutritious and low-calorie. They are rich in fiber, minerals, vitamins and antioxidants. You have to cook it yourself because vegetables offered at the restaurant are often served with amount of butter, bacon or cheese.
Plain yogurt is an almost perfect food, this is not the case of one who is flavored. The sugar that can raise adds the account of calories, as well as the blood sugar. Sugar substitutes are less caloric, but do still vigilant: some artificial sweeteners pose a risk to health. It is also a good substitute for mayonnaise salad dressings and other dishes. You can prepare a fabulous dessert sauce simply by mixing it with a little brown sugar and Grand Marnier.
Apple, carrots, melon, Tea (watch the sugar), cauliflower, broccoli, salmon, grapefruit, Water (1.5 liters/day), green tea, Rawness with lemon juice, drizzle of olive oil, Aromatic herbs, and spices to flavor, Whole grain, Soups: hold it and it is good for health, White-meat and fish, ham, tuna nature…
AVOID: Wafers fourées, Macarons, Madeleines, Gingerbread, Petit beurre, Shortbread, Margarine, Bacon, Egg, Chips, Oils, peanut, canola, olive, sunflower, soybean, sugar, carbonated beverage…
