For Weight Loss limit your fat intake to 20-60 grams (0,6 - 1,8 oz.) per day.
Cut off excess fat from meats; Avoid red meat, concentrate on lean meats like fish and chicken.
Instead of 1 oz. (30 grams) unsweatened baking chocolate use 3 Tbsp. cocoa powder + 2 tsp. vegetable oil.

Steamer helps you with a quick and healthy vegetable preparation
- Plastic or metal strainer. Strainers are terrific for skimming fat from soups and stews.
- More than one cutting board (so you don't have to wash between chopping meat and veggies)
- Use a Pasta pot with drainer lid (make pasta with less dishes)
I'm taking my weight losing tips really serious but I also invest in some quality equipment. With my great equipment I now create great healthy dishes in a flash.
