Fab Tips For Fast Weight Loss Using Low Fat Foods!

When trying to lose weight, most people know they have to switch to low fat foods. This may include changing the method you cook with as well, for example, using a low fat air fryer such as the Tefal Actifry. Read more here. The best thing to do initially is to talk with your health physician to establish some form of plan. After that you should find a group of friends and loved ones that can show you their support. With a good support system, determination and the right advice, weight loss is inevitable.

If you’re getting sick of eating the same old salad every day, wrap it up! Take your lettuce, cheese, meat, and other vegetables and put it onto a whole grain pita or flatbread. Use your salad dressing or an alternative like mustard or low-fat mayonnaise to spread on your bread. This will be a fun treat for lunchtime!

Substituting low fat processed foods for high fat ones when trying to lose weight is a very popular idea; however, it does not always work. For example, replacing regular store bought desserts with the low fat store alternatives may make you want to eat more! The low fat ones are often missing some of the taste and often don’t save you much in terms of calories anyway. When removing fat from products, this is often replaced with some form of sugar, so check your labels! Instead, try making your own desserts! You will know what is going into what you are making and can cut back on certain things without sacrificing taste.

Ice cream is one of the most tempting foods that you can eat, which you will need to avoid if you are trying to lose weight. Instead, try low fat ice cream or low fat yogurt if you are trying to satisfy your cravings while sticking to your weight loss program.

Low-fat yogurt is one of the best snacks that you can have when you are on a diet. Not only is this selection delicious, but you will have a large variety of flavors to choose from, increasing your level of convenience. Choose yogurt as your snack if you are on a diet.

Consuming more than 600 milligrams of calcium a day can help lower your body fat. Studies show that those who ate and drank over 600 mg of calcium a day had less body fat than those who consumed less than 600 mg. Low fat milk, cottage cheese, and broccoli are all great sources of calcium. If you buy very strong low fat cheese you won’t need as much either.

If you enjoy deep fried foods and feel deprived that you can no longer have them, using a low fat air fryer is a great way to make those roast potatoes and chips that you miss. These are quite a good investment in a kitchen anyway as you can cook without all that hot fat that can be so dangerous. Choose your model carefully, as they can both cook other things as well.

Trying to keep to tons of new rules is what makes dieting so difficult for many people. Keep it as simple as you can and choose what works best for you. Remember that every one is different. You do not have to employ each and every bit of advice that you read. Try a few of the above tips for your low fat diet and then stick with those that give you the best results and that you feel comfortable with.

Secura TurboFry Info

Although it is currently possible to obtain the Tefal Actifry in the USA, unfortunately this is not so easy if you want the Philips Air Fryer.

However, there is another similar product available in the US that is becoming very popular. This is the latest Secura TurboFry multi-function device.  This versatile cooker is a low fat fryer and also a rotisserie turbo oven with a large cooking container.

The closest viable equivalent in the UK to this model is the Andrew James 12 LTR Halogen Cooker which is at the time of writing reduced to £39.95 (plus postage) from £89.95 if you follow This Link.

There is no need to turn food and the Secura TurboFry will cook a chicken and pizza just as evenly. In addition, you only need to add 1 tablespoon of cooking oil to produce two pounds of prepared potatoes into delicious fries. Fries are cooked using hot air, infrared waves and a food tumbler (similar to the Tefal paddle). Basically it bakes, broils and fries fresh and frozen foods without the need to defrost.

Made from heavy duty glass the Secura comes with a 12 litre capacity container, temperature dial and timer. Accesories include a useful turntable baking rack, high rack, food tumbler, tongs, oil measuring spoon and an extender ring.

I have not personally used the Secura (although I’d like to!) However, reviewers comments are mostly glowing and report a lot of use from this product. Check out their comments by CLICKING HERE.

If you follow THIS LINK you can currently get the Secura TurboFry for just $159.94 which is a great reduction from $299.99!

Is A Low Fat Air Fryer Worth Buying If You Live On Your Own?

Have you ever been put off from buying an air fryer because you don’t think it’s worth the expense if you live on your own? Well, think again as it could save you on your energy bills as well as in terms of time and convenience. Let me explain why.

For those who have been to my website it would come as no great surprise that I’m a great fan of my Philips Air Fryer so I make no apologies if my slant towards them emits from this brief article! However, during my experimentation with it, I’ve come to believe this gadget is as useful as the microwave has become – particularly if you regularly cook for yourself. This puts it firmly in the remit of students and other single working people including those who are retired who may have issues with carrying hot pans or bending to get things out of the oven.

Now, most people know that we should all be following a lower fat diet for health reasons, irrespective of whether trying to lose weight. This is what owning an air fryer all is about. Cooking with no fat or significantly lower amounts.

Apart from the health aspect, there is also the convenience of cooking when you are short of time or just don’t want to get the pots and pans out or put the oven on (especially in the summer). Although the Tefal Actifry was probably the first air fryer on the market (at least in Europe), IMHO, it is the Philips Air Fryer that is more adaptable for use with different foods. Chips and fries are NOT the only thing you can cook in your fryer!

The Philips Air Fryer takes up less space than the Tefal and is more attractive with its ergonomic pod shaped design. You can leave it out on the work surface without it getting in too much of the way, but it also fits neatly inside a cupboard without moving the shelf to get it in. It’s not that heavy so should be easy to lift for all.

So what foods can you put in it? Although the machines are widely advertised to cook chips that taste just like the deep fried ones we all know and love, they are a bit different without all that oil. However, I firmly believe they taste better than oven chips and certainly look more like the home made fried variety although you can pop in frozen chips if you wish. But what else?

OK, I have so far made brownies, reheated my own frozen Yorkshire puddings and roast potatoes. You can also roast your own potatoes, cook croquettes, hash browns and all manner of frozen things like veggie sausages, fish fingers or breaded fillets and even bake jacket potatoes with nice crispy skins. Roasted vegetables are great when using the included pan and you can even pop a small quiche in. If you are single, you can easily cook a meal for one by using the food divider saving you time and washing up!

All this and it’s much faster to cook as well! If you were cooking oven chips you have to heat the oven and cook your oven chips takes around 30 minutes. In the air fryer, the whole process using the same chips would take no more than 15 minutes for 2-4 portions (this depends on your appetite)!

Add to that the fact that you are not dealing with dangerous hot fat and heavy pans and you are on to a winner!
