Manage Portion Size to Manage Weight Loss
You don't have to have a culinary arts degree to be the chef in your kitchen. All you need is the right attitude and an assortment of tasty recipes that fit your weight loss program. In the Kitchen with MRC is a cookbook from the weight loss specialists at the Metabolic Research Center that focuses on having real fun while preparing real foods for your table.
For most of us, hearing that we need to make a "lifestyle change" is bad news. News that can cause us to conjure up negative images of replacing our favorite comfort foods with a very boring and bland diet. At MRC weight loss centers, nothing could be farther from the truth.
To get a fast start in the right direction, visit the Recipes Section of this website and pick out a handful of items that look appealing for breakfast, entrees, snacks and desserts. Yes that's right, MRC encourages you to prepare tempting desserts. That way you can manage every craving.. and you won't have to spend hours slaving over a hot stove.. quite the opposite. Even if you're somewhat lost in the kitchen, most of MRC's favorite recipes take less time to prepare than a frozen entree in the oven.
Now it is time for a quick trip to your favorite grocery store or farmer's market. For the most part, the fresher the protein and produce the better. Remember to shop like a real chef and bypass the frozen foods, processed meats and canned goods; but don't forget to stock up on your favorite spices. Spices are a great way to add lots of flavors to satisfy the taste buds without increasing the calorie count. Additionally, one of the goals of a Michelin-star chef is to work with as many local foods as possible while they are "in season". A practice that is both cost-effective and healthy. Then, start with a simple recipe, be creative in a healthy way and plate nominal-sized portions.
