Dr. Joy’s Joyful Pleasures: Easy Guilt Free Meals For Weight Loss 

 August 24, 2020

By  Dr. Joy Lasseter

Follow these basic guidelines to re-arrange your calorie distribution during the day.

First, plan your meals to be about equal calories for each meal: breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Second, don’t skip meals. Try to eat each meal at the same time every day.

Third, change your focus on the evening meal being the largest. Eat early (6 to 7 pm) and eat fewer calories than you were accustomed to eating in the past. 

Fourth, be careful of what you eat for dinner. You might wear it tomorrow… around your waist! Heavy evening meals are not digested well, especially if eaten late. And that can interfere with restful sleep!


Follow These Ideas Using Your Favorite Recipes for Guilt-Free Meals: 

Egg and Vegetable Frittata

Protein Smoothie with ½ Cup Fruit of Choice

Green Protein Smoothie with 1 Leaf Each of Chard, Kale and Spinach in 1 Cup Pineapple Juice

Mixed Greens Salad Topped with Smoked Salmon

BBQ Chicken with Vegetable Salad

Poached Fish of Choice with Steamed Broccoli and Yellow Squash

Hamburger and Bean Chili with Vegetable Salad

Slow Cooker Chicken or Beef Stew with Vegetables

Salad Dressing: Extra Virgin Olive Oil with Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice. Season to taste.
