Happy Friday ladies!

Tomorrow’s forecast is hinting at a cool, wet morning.  For that reason, we are redirecting our workout to FIU (from Key Biscayne).  We will meet at the FIU garage at 7 AM, for a super duper (& sheltered) workout!

See you in the morning!!  If you want to join us but are unsure about meeting location, send us an email at WOFBmiami@gmail.com for more specific directions.

13 FOODS YOU CAN EAT ANYTIME!

February 19, 2020

Ladies, let’s face it.  Trying to do the right thing all the time is not easy…. losing weight, getting lean, eating clean….they all require effort and preparation.  If you’re like me, you feel hungry most of the time, and when you open the fridge door, it’s almost impossible to fight the temptation to grab something delicious.  However, there are products you CAN eat during the day without risk of gaining weight as they contain a minimum amount of calories.   WE CAN DO THIS!  WE ARE SUPERWOMEN!

1.  Celery

Approximately 95% of celery is water. This super healthy product contains 30% of your daily requirement of vitamin K. It’s best to eat celery when it’s fresh as it loses most of its useful properties within five days of cutting.

 

2.  Egg whites (Lorraine’s favorite)

I like to use one egg and 4-5 whites for breakfast, either scrambled or omelet-style.  Mix with spinach and veggies and get a tasty meal!  You can also hard boil them and use as snacks.

 

3.  Lettuce/Mixed Greens (Romaine, Spinach, Arugula, Red/Green Butter, etc)

Lettuce – all types, is packed with vitamins A and C as well as folic acid and iron. It’s practically devoid of calories, so its consumption in large quantities won’t cause any weight gain.

4.  Cucumbers

(MY FAVORITE!)

Cucumbers contain almost the same amount of water as celery. Fresh crunchy cucumbers have significant health benefits. The skin of a cucumber contains most of its nutritional value, particularly beta-carotene, which is good for your eyes. So it’s better not to peel them.

5.  Cauliflower

Cauliflower is an excellent source of vitamins C and K. It’s most nutritious when eaten raw.

 

6.  Tomatoes

Tomatoes are full of lycopene, vitamins A, C, and B2, folic acid, fiber, chromium, and potassium.  I like the cherry ones – I throw a few in my salad or take a handful as a snack.

7.  Broccoli

Broccoli provides vitamins A, C, E, and K, & contains approximately 20% of your daily fiber requirement.

 

8.  Popcorn

Popcorn is “bad” when it’s loaded with butter/oils, cheese and salt.  However, air-popped popcorn is a great snack!  It mostly consists of air, and you can enjoy eating it without fear of gaining extra weight, so pop your own and enjoy.  It also has fiber.

 

9.  Sugar snap peas

Sugar snap peas are very low in calories: a cup of peas contains around 35 kcal. They’re quite rich both in fiber and protein.

 

10.  Grapefruit

Grapefruits help to stabilize blood sugar levels. They’re full of vitamin C and filling.

 

11.  Strawberries

Another indispensable product for all those losing weight. Strawberries are rich in potassium and fiber and have an anti-inflammatory effect.

12.  Blackberries

Blackberries are full of antioxidants and vitamin C. Plus, they have an amazing taste. They’re safe even for those who have been on a diet for a long time. The caloric content of the product is relatively low.

 

13.  Blueberries

Blueberries have more antioxidants than any other fruit. Therefore, a cup of blueberries will help you balance your diet. This food is light in calories, so you don’t have to worry about the risk of gaining weight.

Body fat % is where it’s at!

OK, so maybe don’t completely ditch the scale because it can be a helpful tool, but don’t let it control you.

When it comes to weight/fat loss, progress is best measured with body fat calipers and/or a tape measure, a mirror, the fit of your clothes, and most importantly, how YOU feel.  The scale can help if you are very overweight, but it is not always an exact indication of how you’re progressing at a specific point in time.  Keep that in mind, be patient and stick to your goals!

Have a great Monday!

GET IT!
