Drop pounds without dropping your favorite foods
Whenever I follow a fat loss diet plan to lose a few extra pounds, I never stop eating my favorite foods. A good Lifestyle Fitness solution will help you incorporate the foods you love into your daily eating plan. In some cases, they may only need a few adjustments to readjust the macronutrient ratio. Macronutrients are fat, protein, and carbohydrates, and to create an effective fat-burning meal, it’s good to have a balance of each. As isocaloric. I get 33% of my calories from carbohydrates, 33% from protein, and 33% from fat. This is very close to the Zone, which is a 40/30/30 ratio, but I reduce the carb ratio slightly and balance strength.
Do you love Love Chili?
This brings me to chili. I love chili so much that I can eat it several days a week. I will consistently shed 2 pounds of fat from my body each week and will do so by eating chili for lunch almost every day. Now I don’t suggest chili for lunch every day as I like to promote a lot of variety, but since this only takes 5 minutes to make, I do it every week.
My chili recipe
This specific recipe is incredibly high in fiber, and I have replaced some of the fat that you would find with traditional chili with ground flax seeds that give it a high dose of Omega-3. The idea is to keep the fat there but reduce the fat content by using lean ground turkey and adding a few calories from back fat with ground flax seeds. The high fiber content and the balance of fat, protein, and carbohydrates create a very slow-digesting meal. This is critical to maintaining a constant flow of fuel into your bloodstream, allowing you to maintain stable blood sugar levels that keep you in a good mood and on a full stomach (not always an easy thing to do while losing! weight!)
Let’s get to the recipe – this only takes 5 minutes to prepare!
1.25 pounds lean ground turkey 6 tablespoons ground flax 1 jar reduced sugar spaghetti ragu sauce 1 can pinto beans (low sodium – or get organic dry beans and soak) 1 can black beans (low sodium – or get organic dried beans and soak them) 1 packet chili seasoning 1 jalepeño or chopped green bell pepper (optional) Chopped fresh cilantro – optional garnish
Brown the ground beef in a deep saucepan. Drain any excess fat and return to the skillet. Add the sauce, seasoning, beans, and flaxseed. Now simmer for 20 minutes stirring occasionally.
This recipe makes 6 servings.

That’s it, that’s all it takes to make a simple dieter chili. Almost any recipe can be made to suit your fat loss plans. In most cases, it’s just a matter of adjusting those macronutrients up or down. In some cases, you may need to figure out how to reduce carbohydrates and increase protein. In this recipe, we had to add fat, so we added the ground flax seed for a healthy dose of omega 3. Pick your favorite foods and start experimenting with creating your own fat-loss recipes.
