Guacamole and Chips…Before
A continuing series; My pursuit of how to Eat to Lose Weight.
I think Seasame Street should add a Guacamole Monster to their new “nutrition conscious” character lineup – I will be first in line at the audition!
Until recently I ate guacamole with tortilla chips but I had the unenvious job of doing a LifehackrDiet calorie audit, I had to convert it to a low Calorie snack. I enjoy the Yucatan brand of Guacamole which weighs in at about 100 Calories for 3 tbsp which is a nice sized serving for me. The problem was the Tortilla Chips (which are delicious and I still eat them on occasion), 15 of them are 150 Calories. When these two delicious ingredients are eaten together, I could easily consume 250-300 Calories for a snack.
Hacked! Guacamole and Sugar Snap Peas/Sweet Mini Peppers
What’s more fun than auditioning veggies with a dollop of guacamole? Eating them!
There were several “best supporting food” candidates; carrot sticks, cucumber spears, celery stalks but the for me the “best food” award goes to Sugar Snap Peas and Mini Sweet Peppers. You should definitely explore what you like but the result should be the same – 150 Calories cut down by 2/3 to under 50 Calories.
I eat Guacamole and my chip substitute of choice daily and I have a satisfying, healthy snack that is 150 Calories or less.
With a couple of substitutes, you can eat anything you want at home in restaurants and with friends. Keep record of what you eat in your food journal, and let your digital pedometer record your calories out – your job is to burn more than you consume.
I have been able to lose 30lbs in 6 months this way with little difficulty.
I don’t have any superpowers other than the LifehackrDiet technique and technology which Illuminates the workings of my metabolism and allows me to control my actions to get the results I want.
These are life long habits that you are laying down and it only takes 3 minutes a day everyday to maintain your weight. There some challenging days but the majority of them a good ones – just remember the choice is always and has always been YOURS to make. Take control with the LifehackrDiet plan, today!
