Those weight-loss New Year’s resolutions we feel so passionately the first week of January are so much harder to maintain just a short while later. Patricia Bannan, author of “Eat Right When Time Is Tight: 150 Slim-Down Strategies and No-Cook Food Fixes”, has some great tips for small changes that can make a big difference to your health and weight in the long-term. For instance, she says: “Eggs are one of the most nutritious ways to start your day, providing protein and antioxidants for good health. In fact, research suggests that starting the day with an egg breakfast can reduce hunger and help reduce caloric intake by more than 400 calories over the next 24 hours.” And, of course, replacing meat with mushrooms is a growing trend that reduces calories and still gives great flavour. See her article “7 Simple Weight-Loss Foods” on the Fox News site at https://fxn.ws/1BlMhbg for how blueberries, beans, whole grains and more can help you on your weight-loss journey.
