The foods we love so much

Dieters, you'll be happy with what you are about to read. I got this from Healthy Living's diet update. Their most recent study shows that the foods we love so much but believe to be diet no-no's possess properties that can actually help us get slim. Here they are...

ICE CREAM. A lot of people love this yummy treat but dieters stay away from it because of its high fat content and sugar. Swedish researchers are saying that it is ok to consume ice cream because the higher fat content keeps the food longer in your tummy than a fat-free yogurt would. Women who indulge in one serving a day of whole-fat dairy, gained less weight than those who didn't.

EGG. I used to believe that you should stay away from eggs if you are dieting, but according to them, overweight women who eat eggs for breakfast lose twice as much as those who start their day with bread. Eggs digest more slowly that carb-heavy foods and make you feel full for a longer time.

PEANUT BUTTER is high in monounsaturated fat and it activates the release of a hormone responsible for sending signals of fullness to the brain. They found out that dieters who who ate 2 tablespoons a day kept their weight.

Surprising news, isn't it? If there's an urge to indulge in these foods, GO AHEAD and enjoy them, they're not bad after all.

Glad to hear I can eat my ice cream and I have heard that about the eggs. I love all this information as usual. Super post.

Ice Cream as a health food? Wow, now almost all my prayers have been answered!

Totally can attest to the Peanut Butter and Egg thing. I've been having an egg or toast with peanut butter in the morning and it lasts a LONG time. My problem with ice cream is getting only "one serving" at a time since it is usually only 1/4-1/2 cup. I'm better to just avoid it all together!

Hey Liza,

I don't mind the ice-cream and eggs...but I'll pass the peanut butter (I am not much of a fan).
Anyway, I am not a dieter...I am totally pro-exercise!! The secret is to burn, burn, burn calories...

Only today I saw your message on my blog: thank you for the weekend wishes, darling :D! I did have a good weekend, and I hope you had a fine one as well :D!

Wishing you a superb week ahead...

Cheers

Hi. Most people think that shrimps have high levels of cholesterol. A recent study proved the contrary.
Another ingredient you can eat as much as you like. There are many misconceptions in dieting, they´re all over.
I love eggs and Ice cream, would pass the peanut butter too.
Cheers!
