Four Fantastic Weight Loss Recipes

Weight loss is the effect you receive when you burn more calories than you eat. In other words, weight loss is what you get when your rate of physical activity is greater than your rate of calorie consumption.

So if you want to lose weight, you’ll need to increase the ratio of physical activity to calorie consumption.

You could just eat less food, but eventually you’re not going to be able to take the hunger anymore. You could just exercise, but unless you already don’t eat very many calories, your ratio still won’t be high enough.

The solution is to continue to eat the amount of food that makes you feel full, but to simply choose foods with less caloric density. This is what you’ll find in the weight loss recipes below.
