Tip #44: Instead of pie or cake for dessert, offer fruit-based fare like fondue, fruit cocktail, yogurt parfait, or, simply a fresh piece fruit. Not only will this reduce the fat and calorie content of your meal's finale, most folks find fruit more refreshing than sweets.

Tip #45: Try some fat-fighting baking substitutions: Use 3 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder to replace 1 ounce of unsweetened chocolate in desserts; crushed graham crackers are a healthier alternative to pie crusts; replace 1 egg with 2 egg whites or ¼ cup of egg substitute; replace half of the oil in dessert recipes with an equal amount of unsweetened applesauce.

Tip #46: We tend to overeat watching television, especially on the foods we tend to overdo anyway like straight-out-of the bag potato chips. Do yourself a favor and portion out a single serving of your favorite treat into a snack bag and allow yourself only that serving during prime time.

Tip #47: Make each meal a square meal. When you don't eat well-balanced meals during the day or forgo them entirely you will end up so famished by the time you do eat that you're far more likely to binge. A reliable way to keep your appetite from getting out of control is to incorporate good sources of protein into your meals.

Tip #48: Make one day of the week's meals all vegetarian. You'll not only eat healthier by building your meals around vegetables and grains (thus reducing fat and increasing fiber), you might end up finding you like them and go veggie for good! If you try different ways of preparing veggies, you'll probably find some to your liking.

Ready for more great tips? If so, read on for the next tips that will help you get skinny quick in no time!

Tip #39: Roasting, baking, grilling, braising and broiling are healthy meat-cooking methods. Use ncooking sprays instead of oil or butter during preparation. Another way to reduce fat is to strain cooked ground beef and rinse it with hot water. (Drain it well before you continue the recipe.) Be sure to keep portions under control.

Tip #40: Yes, chicken is a healthy choice, but keep in mind that dark meat contains about twice as much fat as white meat. Also, chicken skin is fattening. You can remove the skin yourself before cooking, choose skinless varieties, or take off the skin before you eat it. Basically, however you choose to avoid it ... just make sure you do.

Top #41:Steaming or microwaving veggies means you don't have to add any fat during preparation; choose lemon juice, herbs, or vinegar over margarine. Use herbs and spices or imitation butter sprinkles. If steamed vegetables don't suit your taste buds, reduce the amount of oil you use if you sauté them. Broth or flavored vinegar makes a great substitute for oil.

Tip #42: Whenever you have the chance, choose whole grains as your bread choice. For example, you could choose whole grain breading for stuffing preparation; whole grain dinner rolls; whole wheat bread for sandwiches; and wild rice instead of white.

Tip #43: Got milk? Trade it in for the powdered variety when baking and you'll save yourself a lot of fat and calories. Add equal parts water to replace milk or use it straight from the can as a substitute in recipes calling for heavy cream.

Get Skinny Quick-Wieght Loss Tips That Won't Interfer With Your Life

Well, so far we have covered 33 ways to get skinny quick that won't interfere with your life. They are so easy that you can use them right away!

We will cover tips 34-38 today. Remember to choose a few that will work for you and you will be well on your way to reach your get skinny quick weight loss goals!

Tip #34: Make sure your attention isn't being diverted from your treadmill walking if you multi-task. Pay close attention to your form and posture. Is watching TV causing you to bend forward? Is reading slowing your pace? Gauge your results without distractions and you'll probably find you're at a steadier pace with better posture.

Tip #35:
Dining at an Italian eatery tonight? If you're watching your fat intake, it's a safe bet to choose pasta. Pasta itself is low in fat (as long as it's not filled with meat or cheese!). It's what we put on it that causes problems. Avoid butter, oil, cream sauces, and pesto sauces. Instead go with a marinara sauce, marsala wine or red clam sauce.

Tip #36:

Tip #37:
Make sure you're eating smart at the deli. Mayonnaise is one of the easiest ways to "accidentally" sneak more fat into your diet. Don't fatten up an otherwise healthy lunch like a turkey sandwich!

Try some of the alternative diet or lite versions of mayo instead, or, opt for a diet-friendly condiment instead like mustard, ketchup, horseradish, salsa or pickle relish.


Tip #38:
Bagels are a portion control trap waiting to happen. Bakery bagels are often over-sized; they can be large enough that they comprise of two (or more!) servings of bread. Plan on taking a friend with you by the bakery next time you get that gotta-have-it-now craving and split that big ol' bagel with him!

Get Skinny Quick-5 More Tips to Lose Weight Quick

In the previous post, we covered some really great tips to get skinny quick. Since we are covering 100 easy weight loss tips, I am sure you will find some that will work just for you!

100 Easy Weight Loss Tips
http://www.about.com

Tip #29: Every now and again we all have to splurge. If you've got a real hankering for your favorite fattening food, go ahead and let yourself indulge. Just meet yourself halfway: For example, get a child's size cone instead of a two-scooper. You don't feel deprived, but you are still conscious of healthy eating.

Tip #30: While we are asleep all night, our bodies go into "fasting" mode, yet another reason you shouldn't skip breakfast. Eating breakfast within the first hour after waking may actually raise your metabolism and help you burn calories more effectively throughout the day.

Tip #31: When you are following a new diet, it's easy to get stuck in a rut. Instead of dining on the same-old-same-old, find out what ethnic foods fit into your program and try something new.

Perhaps you should venture into an Indian or Vietnamese restaurant that you've never tried. Invest in an Italian cookbook if you usually prepare meat and potatoes. You may find a new cuisine you never knew you liked!


Tip #32: Self-talk really does work, whether it is positive or negative. Lift your spirits and prolong your motivation every single day by telling yourself that you can and will succeed.

You may even find that it is helpful to say self-affirming phrases out loud. Your roommates may think you've gone crazy, but when you find it is quite effective, you won't mind.

Look in the mirror today, and say, "Nothing is going to stop me from meeting my weight loss goal."


Tip #33: If you start a new diet plan that omits certain food groups, you may be falling short of your nutritional needs. To supplement any shortcomings, be sure to take a good multi-vitamin every single day. While vitamins don't actually replace eating healthful foods, they are a good way to boost nutrition

Over the last number of posts, we have been learning many ways to get skinny quick and how to lose 1 pound a week. The great part about it is that these weight loss tips are easy and fit into any lifestyle.

Today's post will cover tips 24-28.

100 Easy Weight Loss Tips
http://www.about.com

Tip #24: Set your table for portion control! Using smaller dishes to serve food may actually help you to eat less. Try using a salad plate for pasta or a dessert saucer for snacks.

According to the book 50 Ways to Lose Ten Pounds (Publications International, 1994), a study showed that 7 out of 10 people on a weight loss program felt more satisfied with less food when it was served on a salad plate instead of a regular size dinner plate.


Tip #25: Researchers conducting a study about how eating fewer meals relates to weight loss found that those who do not eat breakfast may have a four to five percent lower metabolic rate than those who do!

That's why it's so important to eat breakfast. Try different types of foods until you find a few you can stick with. Otherwise, bailing out on breakfast may sabotoge your weight loss efforts.


Tip #26: Many people who habitually overeat consume their food very quickly and take large bites. If this is the case, it only stands to reason that many digestive problems like heartburn seem to crop up or worsen as we gain weight.

Eating more slowly will not only improve your digestion, but eating mindfully will allow you to appreciate what you are eating. It also helps you practice portion control and to stop eating when you feel satiated.


Tip #27: Try serving high-fiber appetizers before your meals. This helps prevent overeating and paves the way for portion control.

A salad makes a perfect healthy appetizer, but be wary of high-fat salad dressings; choose reduced- or non-fat varieties. A vegetable tray with non-fat dip or even slices of raw fruit serve as great starters, too.


Tip #28: It's time to resign from the clean plate club and practice portion control. Don't eat it all just because you think you are "supposed" to, especially when dining out on out-of-control restaurant servings.

Put half of your meal in a carry out carton before you start eating. Even if you don't want it for lunch the next day, Fido will; they don't call it a doggie bag for nothing!

I hope you have found useful the 18 get skinny quick weight loss tips that we have gone over.

Truly, they are very easy and any of us can do it.

If you're ready, we gonna go over tips 19-23!

100 Easy Weight Loss Tips
http://www.about.com

Tip #19: Get that calcium

Creighton University conducted a study on calcium's effects on weight loss. They found that women who consumed 1,000 mg of calcium every day weighed nearly 20 pounds less than the women in the control group. *

Just be sure to keep your dairy fix low- or non-fat! For example, you can drink up your 1,000 mg of calcium in the form of three 8-oz. glasses of fat-free milk. Low-fat yogurt works too.
* Source: Fitness Magazine, May 2001: "Eat Smart Strategies," p. 62.

Tip #20: Keep a food diary

A recent study proved the power of keeping an accurate food diary. Volunteers were asked to keep a record of everything they consumed. Turns out most women stretched the truth ...
In fact, they were actually consuming close to 1,000 calories more than their diaries let on. Lesson learned? Keep that food diary above board and you will succeed!

Tip #21 Avoid Those Containers

Avoid eating anything directly out of the container, particularly foods that lend themselves to binges like ice cream or potato chips. It's virtually impossible to practice portion control when you eat straight out of a container.

When you eat from the sources, you're likely to fall into all-or-nothing thinking: "If I'm being this 'bad' then I should just go all the way." You'll feel more in charge of your actions by eating one serving mindfully from a dish.

Tip #22 Don't Hide!

Always remember that oversized clothes don't help camouflage problem areas. Excess fabric only makes you look bulkier. Don't try to hide under your clothes!

Tip #23 Get Prepared

It's all-too-easy to ignore portion control at dinner time when serving dishes are at the dining table. Prepare plates ahead of time and leave the dishes on the burner.
Choose vegetables as your seconds rather than meat or starches. Better still, become semi-vegetarian and treat vegetables as your main course and meat as a side dish.

Get Skinny Quick-Lose Weight Quick-5 More Easy Weight Loss Tips

We are continuing on our get skinny quick weight loss journey by discovering 100 easy weight loss tips!

Learn more about how to lose weight fast by following tips 14-18 today!

100 Easy Weight Loss Tips
http://www.about.com

Tip #14: Exercise raises your metabolism and causes an increased number of calories to be burned even when you're done. That means you can exercise and then sit and watch TV and you will be a calorie burning couch potato! (Work out first, veg out later!)

Have you ever seen the supplement commercial that claims: "Lose weight while you sleep!"? Well, a pill can't make that happen, but in a way, exercise can. So get moving!

Tip #15: In the mood for a cool sweet treat? Want to keep the fat and calories at a minimum? Freeze a container of lite whipped topping and you'll satisfy a craving for ice cream. Add sugar-free chocolate syrup and a cherry for that extra "oomph"!

Another delicious treat is Yoplait's Key Lime Pie low-fat yogurt. You'll swear you're eating the real thing! Best part? Calcium may help with weight loss and yogurt aids in digestive health.

Tip #16: A milkshake is a tempting sweet treat during the dog days of summer, but like ice cream, it will wreak havoc on your diet. Even small fast food style shakes have around 26 to 30 grams of fat!

For a lighter alternative choose a smoothie or make your own milkshake at home using ingredients like low-fat frozen yogurt, 2% milk, and sugar-free chocolate sauce.

Tip 17: If you know you're going to go overboard with the appetizer dinner rolls, ask the server to remove them from the table. If you ask me, it's virtually impossible to practice portion control within the scent of freshly baked bread.

Avoid the temptation to think, "It's free. I really should eat it." It may be free to your wallet, but not your waistline!

Tip #18: Do you suffer from buffet thinking? If the availability of more food items adds to your temptation level then, you'll have to answer "Yes.". A recent study suggested that the more food choices you have, the more you consume. Stick to a healthy variety of a fewer number of items and you may be less likely to overeat.

Get Skinny Quick-100 Simple Weight Loss Tips

So far, we have been covering 8 easy to follow get skinny weight loss tips. We have 92 more to go so we'd better get going!

100 Easy Weight Loss Tips from http://www.about.com

Tip #9: Avoid Chattering!

If you know chatting in the kitchen is going to cause you to raid the pantry... take the conversation elsewhere. If lingering at the dinner table makes you long for dessert... vamoose!

Don't use the kitchen table for other activities like paying bills if you know you can't fight temptation. (The cookie jar always calls my name when I'm busy crunching numbers.)

And before you head to the family room, take a brisk walk and make a pre-emptive strike against the mother of all danger zones ... anywhere near the TV!

Tip #10: Watch Out For Those Snacks

Is snacking the high point of your lunch or "coffee" break? Do you find yourself obsessing over what's in the vending machine? (My weakness; it's hard to take a breather when you're inhaling corn chips.)

So, make something else the priority during your break. Try taking a brisk walk, doing some calm breathing, or listening to a few minutes of an audio book. You'll find it's easy to chill out without pigging out.

Tip #11: Get Organized

An organized pantry and refrigerator lends itself to mindful eating. Being able to easily find what you are looking for will help keep you focused and make better choices.

Keep a running inventory of healthy staples. Always store them in the same area so you will know what to replenish on your next trip to the grocery store.

Tip #12: Grab Those Bran Flakes!

Try adding bran flakes to your usual breakfast cereal. The extra fiber in the bran flakes will give your usual cereal extra staying power by making you feel fuller. Fruit like apples and bananas are also good fiber-rich cereal partners. Two easy steps towards the recommended 25 grams of fiber we need each day!

Tip #13: Reward Yourself

Rewarding myself helps me stay motivated. I dread getting on my treadmill, so I have created mini goals. For every 50 miles I walk, I give myself a treat like a new bestseller or a new shade of lipstick. It sounds trivial, but it really works!

Get Skinny Quick-More of the 100 Easy Weight Loss Tips

In our previous get skinny quick tips post, we began to uncover 100 easy weight loss tips from http://www.about.com.

Today's post will cover 4 more easy weight loss tips just for you!

-Tip #8: A food diary isn't the only "write way" to lose weight. Sit down with pen and paper and list the poor eating and health habits you have. Then brainstorm for solutions that will work for you ... remember, small changes make a big difference.

Keep that list and check off each habit that you kick. Make that checkmark a contract with yourself to never revert to that old habit again. Then, acknowledge your success with a reward!

Get Skinny Quick-The Top 100 Easy Weight Loss Tips

I know those of you who read these get skinny quick posts desire to lose weight in ways that will fit in easily easily with your life.

I think you will love these 100 easy weight loss which I will be sharing with you. Use what works for you and you will achieve your get skinny quick goals!

100 Easy Weight Loss Tips from About.com
http://weightloss.about.com/library/100tips/bltip1.htm

Tip #1

Eating more fiber is a great way to feel fuller throughout the day. Your breakfast can pack a fiber punch. Make sure you use whole wheat bread for toast. Choose a high-fiber cereal like raisin bran. Enjoy some fruit with its skin such as an apple.

Not only will the carbs give your energy level a boost, the fiber will give your meal extra staying-power and get you closer to the 25 grams of fiber we're all supposed to get each day.

Tip #2

Buying single serving packages of foods -- especially snacks -- is a great way to control portions. Not only will they help you eat in moderation, the nutrition information is also handy.

If single serving bags prove too pricey, measure out individual servings into plastic bags when you buy the larger size packages. Just don't reach for a second bag or this trick won't prevent overeating.

Tip #3

Is food really your friend? It's always been there for you, but if you've binged until you developed a weight problem ... with a friend like food, who needs enemies?

When you're feeling sad or stressed -- or any emotional eating cue -- pick up the phone or instant message a true friend (someone who you know will offer support). Be your own best friend and give emotional eating the cold shoulder!


Tip #4

Setting big goals does more harm than good. It's easy to get discouraged when you never seem to meet them. Instead, set mini goals and reward yourself to stay motivated.

Be realistic and treat yourself gently. The pounds didn't appear like magic, so don't expect them to **poof** and go away! ;-)


Tip #5

A food diary isn't the only "write way" to lose weight. Sit down with pen and paper and list the poor eating and health habits you have. Then brainstorm for solutions that will work for you ... remember, small changes make a big difference.

Keep that list and check off each habit that you kick. Make that checkmark a contract with yourself to never revert to that old habit again. Then, acknowledge your success with a reward!
