Italian Food That can Help you Lose Weight

Tuesday, 23 Nov 2010 09:18 AM

There are many Italian recipes that can help you lose weight. A typical healthy Italian diet begins with a small breakfast of coffee and cereal or a biscuit. Lunch would consist of a sandwich or salad, or a small plate of pasta followed by a piece of fish, chicken or vegetables. Dinner is the major Italian meal and is not served very late in the evening. It may include pasta with tomato or vegetable sauce, a small portion of meat or fish and vegetables, and a portion of fruit or Italian desserts.
Drinks may include mineral water, red wine, or coffee with no cream.
Overall, Italian foods include recipes containing ingredients like fruits, vegetables, beans, fish, poultry, olive oil, tomatoes, whole grains, dairy, and occasionally red meat. Most of the time you will find the portions are very small.
If you decide to adopt Italian food recipes as part of your diet regime, it is good to adopt two of their lifestyle habits as well: eat small portions of foods that are rich in antioxidants, and high in fiber,
and stop eating when you are full.
Italian diets have a good balance of quantity and quality of food. If you want to lose weight following a diet plan that includes Italian food recipes, all you have to do is opt for low-calorie versions of your traditional favorites.
