Not only does When To Eat What, tell you what you should eat when, it also has some awesome recipes!
My Personal Opinion:
I personally never new why it was so important to eat at certain times, nor did I know it was important to eat certain foods together. I have always usually snacked here and there through out the day, then ate one meal at dinner time. So I couldn’t figure out why I wasn’t losing no weight. Over the past year or so, I have learned how important it is to eat 3 meals a day and to have a few snacks as well. I have also learned that not only is it okay to eat more then one meal a day, but it is important that I do so. By not eating those meals, I am hurting my body more then helping it.
What To Eat When is going to be a great resource for me to turn to, throughout the year, I will be using it as one of my guides as I try to reach my weight loss goal for 2011 which is 50 pounds. I love how Ms. Heidi pretty much lays everything out for you, she gives great advice to almost all situations, as well as an easy to follow meal plan. A lot of weight loss books give you a meal plan to follow, but they are off the wall recipes with expensive products. I think what some forget is most people who are obese are middle class, and purchase cheap foods. You can eat cheap and it still be healthy I have learned this the hard way!
One of the recipes that stood out to me in the book What To Eat When was the Apple Burrito!
Apple Burrito: Serving Size 1
1 whole wheat tortilla (1.5 ounce)
1 tablespoon crunchy peanut butter
1 small apple chopped
1 teaspoon honey
Spread tortilla with peanut butter, sprinkle apples on top. Drizzle with honey and roll up.
Simple recipe quick easy and would make a yummy quick out the door breakfast.
Another great thing about What To Eat When is Ms. Heidi has everything broken down for you. In this one serving there is 320 Calories, 8 grams of Protein, 50 grams of Carbohydrates, 6 grams of fiber, 11 grams of total fat, 2 grams of Saturated Fat, 221 milligrams of Sodium.
