Food Thoughts Help You Eat Less

Think FOOD, Eat less

Some of our smartest scientists at Carnegie Mellon University discovered that continuous thinking about eating a particular food, such as candy or cheese, resulted in the study dieters to eat less of those foods they craved when it was offered to them.

This goes along with the already well-known idea that thinking about a food can make your mouth water. These savvy researchers extended this idea to find that you can also think your way into being satisfied without actually eating the food.

The study used M&Ms and cheese cubes and learned that imagining eating a lot of a food caused the mind to subconsciously restrict how much of that food the dieters actually later ate.

In a nutshell, the study conclusion found that people who imagined eating more food ate less of that same food when it was set before them later on.

Burn Baby Burn – Calories on a Rebounder

Calories Burned By Rebounding

Rebounding is a less stressful means of removing body fat, while simultaneously firming every inch of your body. By simply running in place on a rebounder, you can easily burn calories. According to your body weight, the table on the left shows you how many calories, when running on the rebounder, can be burned for a specified amount of time.

Rebounding vs. Jogging

By jumping on a well-made rebounder, you will feel invigorated and filled with a sense of well-being. This means that you might want to adjust your daily plans as you enjoy how rebounding makes it easier for you to work longer, sleep better, and feel less tense and nervous.

You will also need to grow accustomed to living in a tighter body, because the action of bouncing up and down against gravity, without trauma to the musculoskeletal system, is one of the most beneficial aerobic, fat-burning, muscle-tightening, immune-enhancing, full body exercises ever developed.

Rebounder Routines A-Coming!

Stay tuned to learn more about this very Round exercise that combined with a healthy Round way of eating will give you that toned, slim and sexy body that everyone deserves.

RoundTV will be posting Rebounder Routines that anybody can follow. This will be a new series that will start in June and continue through the Summer!

As promised, the recipes are below for the Swordfish Sliders and takes you through a journey through the prepare ahead of time portion, the BBQing, the tasting and the other ‘half’. Enjoy watching and know that Diana hopes that you subscribe and make a comment!

See the Swordfish Sliders for Two and a Half video now.

Swordfish Sliders

1 fillet Swordfish
Light olive oil
Salt and pepper
Pesto sauce 9 (fresh store bought)
Blackening spices (Find at any grocery store)
1 mango
2 poblano peppers
1 orange pepper
1 red onion
Cilantro
1 lime
Tiny rolls
Asparagus

Instructions

Heat up the grill to high. Cut the swordfish into squares the size of the tiny buns. Lightly brush each piece with olive oil. Pour blackening spices onto a plate and dredge all surfaces of the swordfish until completely covered. You can leave some plain if you do not want all of them to be blackened. Turn the heat down to medium high of a gas grill or wait for the heat to subside for a charcoal grill. Cook each side 3 to 4 minutes. Remember fish keeps cooking after you take it off the grill, so shoot more for 3 minutes per side.

Lightly brush the trimmed asparagus with olive oil and toss on the BBQ. Cook for 3 to 6 minutes,, turning them over so they are roasty toasty.

Mango Salsa Instructions

Chop the mango, poblano peppers, orange pepper, red onion, and cilantro into tiny squares (size of a pea). Mix in a bowl with the juice of 1/2 a lime. make this ahead of time and chill in the refrigerator.

Salad Topping

For the salad topping, follow the recipe here.

Your Diet Starts Tomorrow

Get Ready to Diet

Today I’m going to talk about transitioning from the 2-Weeks Quick Results Diet to the Round Diet. If you have The Round Diet book, read Round 7.

If you are Coming from the 2-Week Quick Results Diet

Ease into eating any fruits — start with blueberries or unsweetened applesauce.

Drink lots of water and go for a walk in the morning and do some other form of exercise at home (see videos below).

Go food shopping on a day like a Sunday so you have all the ingredients and baggies or containers for snacks and lunches on the go.

All Round Dieters — Prepare food in bulk on a Sunday

Broil or bake a bunch of chicken, chop cabbages and lettuces, mix them, and then store the mixture in a container in the fridge for salads during the week — like a chicken salad. Make snacks ahead of time and store in baggies or small containers. If you are doing this with your daughter, a friend or just by yourself, have fun making containers full of ready-to-eat or heat food. Feel very organized and proud of yourself for eating healthy and taking care of yourself.

It’s time to get prepared and choose what you will eat for the week. You get to eat 3 meals and 3 snacks every day! If you want to get the complete effect of Round eating, you should read my book. If not, you can probably find the same information somewhere on my blog.

On this blog you can also find a free day-by-day 28-Day Round Diet, where you will find links to each day. I’ll show you what to eat and other habits to change so that you can be a more well-Rounded eater.

PICK YOUR SNACKS AND MEALS

SNACKS

Eat 3 snacks a day

Choose snacks for each day from the below list. You will eat these between meals.

1 apple or banana or peach or orange, or
1/3 cup blueberries or 1/3 mango or ¼ cantaloupe or 1/3 cup berries or 15 grapes, or
12 almonds or 6 walnuts or 8 olives or 1 hard-boiled egg, or
Handful of mixed vegetables, like celery, carrots, cauliflower, bell peppers, green beans, cucumbers, or mushrooms, or
1 ounce dark chocolate, 6 raspberries, 1 pecan and 1 glass of water followed by a candlelit bubble bath — a most relaxing way to eat dessert, or
1 glass of white wine or a white wine spritzer (white wine and plain soda on the rocks with a squeeze of lime)

Those of you just coming of the 2-Week Quick Results Diet might be looking forward to a glass of wine, but remember that 1/2 a glass might be plenty at first. If you do decide to drink a glass of wine, it can be you last snack of the evening. You can drink red or white wine, along with a white wine spritzer. Save the hard liquor to very special occasions, and not while you are on the Round Diet — you will be in healthy eating maintenance mode soon enough.

BREAKFAST

Choose one Round meal

1/2 cup oatmeal with 2 chopped walnuts and 10 raisins, or
2 poached or boiled eggs with 2 slices tomato, or
2 egg omelet with 1 ounce lean beef or ham, or
2 ounces tofu with 1/2 cup snow peas, or
1/2 slice whole grain toast with 1/4 avocado and a squeeze of lemon

Light lettuce salad with 3 ounces tuna, celery, 1 tablespoon red onions, 1/2 tomato

Add lettuce, cabbage, radicchio, spinach, greens, celery, chives, and sprouts to any meal. Chop it up ahead-of-time and store the mixture for salads later in the week. make a bed of salad on a plate, add fish or chicken, and top with diced fruit and a sprinkle of fresh herbs like cilantro.

DINNER

Choose one Round meal

3 ounces salmon with 1 cup sliced asparagus spears and any leafy greens, or
3 ounces lean beef with 1 cup green beans and any leafy greens, or
3 ounces halibut with 1 cup broccoli and any leafy greens, or
3 ounces chicken with 1 cup cauliflower and any leafy greens, or
3 ounces lean pork with1 artichoke and any leafy greens, or
3 ounces tofu with 1 cup of bok choy and a handful of snow peas

Add lettuce, cabbage, radicchio, spinach, greens, celery, chives, and sprouts to any meal.
Add 1 or 2 shot glasses of brown rice to any meal.
Try hot sauce, mustard or salsa for spice.

Good luck! Until next time!
