400 Calories Lite

Many of my 400 calorie or less meals are heavier fare that really keeps you feeling full, keeps you from craving higher fat foods, and really satiates. But sometimes you want to lighten up to get ready for a special occasion, to fit into that new bathing suit, to ‘diet’ within an already healthy meal plan.

This week I am devoting my posts to just that – the meals posted will be LITE dishes – lo cal, lo fat, lo carb. But still plenty tasty and very nutritious. So jump on in with me and let’s beat down those pounds 🙂

Zero Deprivation Diet

I’ve been on this ‘diet’ for quite some time now – and I have to say that there is really ZERO DEPRIVATION involved. I have eaten EVERYTHING – butter, cream, chocolate, cheese, breads, pizza, beef, fried foods….and the list goes on.

This really is not a diet for me anymore – it is a way of life and eating 400 calorie portions just means eating things in moderation. I crave nothing because I get it all. I don’t make every meal a heavier one. But with some of them, I pack the 400 calories with ingredients that are just going to make it TASTE rich and decadent. Other meals I get more bang for my calorie buck by serving lots of veggies, fruits, fish, grilled chicken – all the things you expect to see when eating healthy. It’s a balancing act – but well worth the effort because I can eat things like you see here on my blog…

And so can you – and you can lose weight while doing it !
