It’s not uncommon to forgo favorite foods while on a weight loss journey, especially those that fall into the “comfort” or “junk” food categories. However, there are a number of favorite foods you can still eat without compromising your weight loss journey with Phentermine 37.5mg. Review some of the top foods below.
A healthier burger is always possible.
“Most people hear burgers and think ‘no way, not when I am trying to lose weight,’ but the truth is YES, you can eat a burger,” says Amy Goodson, MS, RD, CSSD, LD. “It’s all about how you build your burger.”
Goodson recommends consuming burger meat that is 90% lean. She also suggests whole wheat buns, using avocado instead of mayo, and adding veggies such as lettuce, onions, and tomatoes.
“Pair that with a salad and you have a delicious ‘guilty pleasure’ that’s nutrient-rich, calorie-conscious, and has 4 of the 4 food groups in it,” Goodson recommends.
Muffins are considered some of the worst breakfast foods for weight loss, but they don’t have to be.
“Most people agree that baked goods and muffins don’t make the weight loss eating plan, but there are actually some muffin recipes that are nutrient-rich and low-calorie,” says Goodson. “Muffins made with oats or oat flour are a great place to start because they are higher in fiber. “There are some brands that do a fantastic job at getting extra nutrients into baked goods like Veggies Made Great. The first ingredient of their muffins is a vegetable!”
This staple comfort food is another option you don’t have to avoid.
“Try a whole-grain crust or even a cauliflower crust for lower calories and carbohydrates,” Goodson says. “Skip the white sauces and use tomato sauce or even a brush of olive oil. Then add a lean protein like grilled or roasted chicken, mozzarella cheese, and load that bad boy up with veggies and fruit.”
