Comfort Foods for Dieters

For anyone who has started a diet, been on a diet, or just trying to eat healthier, there’s nothing harder than saying goodbye to your favorite comfort foods. They’re like good friends- always there when you need them. Unfortunately, unlike a good friend, these unhealthy food friends are sabotaging your weight.

If you cringe at the thought of giving up pizza, burgers and ice cream, then you'll enjoy these simple diet-friendly replacements and the fact that you can still savor your favorite comfort foods.

Pizza

Just two slices at a restaurant can have nearly a full day’s worth of calories. Instead, make your own at home using a whole grain crust or pita, fresh vegetables, grilled chicken and low-fat mozzarella cheese.

Ice Cream

A pint of some popular brands has more than 1,000 calories. Look for lighter options that pack just as much irresistible flavor. Or, opt for frozen yogurt and mix-in fresh berries.

Chips

Yes, you can still satisfy the crunchy-salty munchies without the calories and fat of potato chips. Soy or rice crisps, baked corn tortilla chips, air-popped popcorn, or whole grain pita chips are all ideal choices.

Bread

Don't give-up toast and sandwiches, instead choose whole grain english muffins, wraps or ultra-thin sliced bread.

Mexican Food

The restaurant version of this favorite food genre can cost you an entire day's worth of calories. When you prepare it at home, you control the ingredients. Use grilled chicken or shrimp, grilled peppers and onions and wrap in a whole grain tortilla with fresh salsa for a super satisfying and guiltless fajita.

Burgers

There are a few ways to still enjoy this backyard favorite. First, don't order from a restaurant. Instead, Grill lean ground beef, lean ground turkey or even a portobello mushroom and top with your favorite veggies and spices.

French Fries

Along side a burger, nothing is better, or worse for you. Save calories and gain nutrients by roasting sweet potato fries, seasoned with black pepper and parmesan cheese.

Chicken Wings

This greasy finger food helps pass the time during a football game. And so will the alternative. Remove the skin from chicken wings, toss in olive oil and your favorite spices and bake.

A yummy low calorie and extremely low fat recipe for chocolate milk. However - prepare 'thou self' because this chocolate gem tastes and looks more like a chocolate shake - and is richer than a Texas oilman.

Brown rice is better. Its less processed than white rice and its not bleached. It tastes good but it might take a little while to get use to if you never had it before.

Pizza and cake are not good for health. These things are full of calories. So avoid these things.
