Eat More, Weigh Less?

Have you tried to lose weight by cutting down the amount of food you eat? Do you still feel hungry and not satisfied after eating? If so, you are not alone. Many people throw in the towel on weight loss because they feel deprived and hungry when they eat less. But there is another way. You can cut calories without eating less nutritious food. The key is to eat foods that will fill you up without eating a large number of calories.

Research shows that people get full by the amount of food they eat, not the number of calories they take in. You can cut calories by lowering the amount of fat and/or increasing the amount of fiber-rich ingredients, such as vegetables or fruit.

Let's take macaroni and cheese as an example. A recipe that uses whole milk, butter and full-fat cheese has about 540 calories per 1-cup serving. Here's how to re-make it with fewer calories and less fat:

Voila! Your mac and cheese now has about 315 calories per 1-cup serving. Try this approach with other recipes and lighten up while still feeling satisfied.
