Low Fat and Low Calorie Recipes

Plant foods are usually low in calories already, so you can enjoy these delectable low calorie, easy healthy recipes without second thoughts.

Apart from cutting animal products, the trick is to load up on natural whole foods and to skip processed foods that have refined sugars or salt.

Refined sugar is deposited in your body as fat, as it is not an essential nutrient (remember the saying: "one minute on the palate and forever on the hips").

Salt binds water in your tissue, which is counter-productive for healthy weight loss, and it can make you feel bloated. Most foods have sufficient nutritious salt in their natural form, and extra seasoning for taste can be healthy if you use herbs, spices, or some vinegars instead of salt.

The low calorie meals I have listed here support any healthy diet weight loss, and they include great heart healthy alternatives to sweeten or season your dishes, while keeping you healthy and assisting your weight loss program in a fast but sustainable manner.

So what foods are delicious and also have the healthy nutrients you need without the added calories? Find out more facts about nutrition and discover our healthy foods chart.
