Working out (consistently and vigorously) is an essential part of any fat loss plan. It sculpts your muscles, raises your metabolism, decreases your body fat and gives you functional strength and endurance.
The only catch is that you can seriously slow down, or even reverse your results by eating poorly. There’s nothing quite as frustrating as when you are working out like a champ, only to face an ongoing battle with body fat.
To keep you from giving up in frustration, I’ve put together the following 3 Dieting Hacks to give your results a boost.
Why am I calling these hacks? A hack is a tip or trick to get results faster. These hacks will fool your taste-buds and your mouth into thinking that you’re eating your regular (high calorie) favorites, when, in fact, you’ll actually be eating a meal with fewer calories, fewer carbs and more fiber.
This means quicker fat loss and smaller belly rolls.
That sounds fantastic, right?
So let’s dig right in…
✅ Dieting Hack #1: RICE
Rice is a big part of many a meal. There’s white rice, brown rice, stir fried rice, sticky rice, wild rice and the list goes on. All of these kinds of rice (yes, even brown rice) are packed with carbs and calories. This is great if you are a growing child or an athlete, (or if you can limit your intake to a very small serving) but not so great for someone with a fat loss goal.
Rather than give up rice completely, because that would make your veggies and protein look really lonely on a half-empty plate, let’s turn to Dieting Hack #1.
🤩 CAULIFLOWER RICE: Now, don’t get skeptical on me until you give this food trick a try. To make rice from cauliflower, first wash it and trim the leaves and stems. Chop into small pieces and then run those pieces through a food processor with the grating attachment. This will result in a rice-like consistency. Place the cauliflower rice in a large skillet with a Tablespoon of olive oil and cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and you are good to go. Serve your normal vegetable and protein dishes over a bed of cauliflower rice just as you would traditional rice. (You can also purchase cauliflower rice, ready to use! I love the frozen Organic Cauliflower Rice from Costco.)💕
✅ Dieting Hack #2: NOODLES
Have you ever noticed that when you crave your favorite pasta dish, you’re actually just craving the flavor of the sauce? Noodles alone are pretty bland and unspectacular. The magic is in the sauce.💕
Noodles, like traditional rice, are packed with calories and carbs that can get in the way of your fat loss results. So, rather than just eating a bowl of sauce, try Dieting Hack #2.
🤩 ZUCCHINI NOODLES: Again, try this trick before you knock it, and I’m guessing that you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Wash a zucchini, and then run a vegetable peeler down its sides, creating long, wide noodles. Stop when you reach the inner, seedy part of the zucchini. These raw, zucchini noodles do not require any cooking, simply throw them onto your plate and top with your favorite hot pasta sauce! My favorites are Marinara and Arrabbiata. (Of course, I’m assuming that you’re not going to use a white, cream-based sauce, but that’s another article for another day.)
✅ Dieting Hack #3: BREAD, BUNS, TORTILLAS
Cauliflower rice and zucchini noodles are all fine and dandy for those meals that you prepare at home, but what about your meals eaten out? Many restaurant meals include bread, buns or tortillas. These things are tasty, yet filled with calories and carbs that you don't need and that can add to those annoying belly rolls.
That’s when you turn to Dieting Hack #3.
🤩 THE LETTUCE WRAP: This trick is more popular than the first two, so you may already be familiar with it. How does it work? When ordering your meal, be it a sandwich, burger or tacos, ask that it be wrapped in lettuce in place of the bread, bun or tortilla. Most places are really cool about it, and you end up getting to eat the good part of the meal – the meat and flavors—without the carb-filled extras. If for some reason the restaurant is unable to wrap it in lettuce for you, then ask for the filling to be placed on a pile of greens and eat it with a fork.
