What a 500-Calorie, Low Carb/High Fat Salad Looks Like

there has been growing interest in 500,calorie meals thanks to the growing,popularity of intermittent fasting,schedules like the 5:2 diet and modified,alternate day fasting if you follow one,of these eating patterns or you are,simply looking for a 500 calorie meal to,keep your hunger away for hours a,low-carb high-fat salad is the way to go,in this video I share the ingredients,that go into this 500 calorie salad in,my opinion the greens can make or break,the taste of a salad I like to use a,spring mix like this organic mixture,that I bought at Costco starting with a,bagged or boxed lettuce is a great,time-saver and I've already measured out,128 grams which is about 2 to 4 cups in,volume salad dressing is also important,to taste and the salads health value as,well and there's a lot of ways to go,wrong with salad dressing for instance,the first ingredient in this salad,dressing is high fructose corn syrup and,the first ingredient in this one is,soybean oil which is a vegetable oil,that I avoid because it is inflammatory,and prone to oxidation or breakdown due,to its high concentration of omega-6,fatty acids and unstable polyunsaturated,fat content now you can make your own,salad dressing using olive oil and,vinegar or you can buy a commercial,brand that is made with a stable oil,which is like this primal kitchen,dressing made with avocado oil I have,already added a tablespoon and a half,which is about 23 milliliters of the,Caesar dressing from this brand and mix,that together already,avocado is a nutrient packed food with a,great amount of healthy fat and fiber as,well as many micro nutrients like,vitamin E and folate which make it in my,book one of the best foods that you can,get inside of your system on a daily,basis and we are going to add a half of,an avocado which is about 68 grams of,avocado to our salad next I'm going to,add about 3 tablespoons or 20,grams of feta cheese crumbles if you are,trying to stay away from dairy a,hard-boiled egg has about the same,macronutrient breakdown so that would be,a good substitution you could also,substitute about two ounces of chicken,but it would reduce the fat content of,your salad and we will top our salad off,with a healthy serving of nuts and seeds,specifically I am adding two tablespoons,of walnuts which is about 13 grams of,walnuts and two tablespoons of raw,sunflower seeds which is about 18 grams,of sunflower seeds nuts and seeds are a,great source of healthy fats and fiber,as well as antioxidants that protect,your body from inflammation which is an,underlying factor in many chronic health,problems like heart disease not to,mention that they also add a great,crunchy texture to your salad which,makes it a much more enjoyable meal and,this salad is ready to go it contains,504 calories 45 grams of fat 18 grams of,carbs 9 of which are fiber and 13 grams,of protein this is a hearty salad with,lots of volume so it is going to take,your digestive system a long time to,process this meal it is also high in fat,and contains no refined carbs so it is,going to keep your blood sugar level,steady for a long time and those factors,are important to you because they are,what keep hunger and cravings away if,you would like this recipe I've posted,it on my website dr.

500 calorie vs 1000 calorie salads why you can't lose weight as a vegan

500 calorie vs 1000 calorie salads why you can't lose weight as a vegan

so i'm going to show you how i make my,lunch and then i'm going to also show,you,what a lot of people would add to this,kind of lunch which would massively bump,up the calories by like 100 like,literally hundreds of calories and this,is what all the vegan influences are,doing,so i'm going to show you what i do,differently so i'm going to start with,some,salad in there some lettuce like we got,given all this which is really nice,it's all like organic which is really,cool like i'm not,normally fancy like this but i'm going,to put that in and then,i've like cooked up like a whole head of,broccoli which is going to help keep me,full,in there without adding many calories at,all but it's obviously going to,bulk out my stomach and then i cooked up,some,sweet potato and potato and you can see,that because of hamming,this here this broccoli i'm not going to,be,as hungry to eat as much of this and,then i've got some more non-starchy,vegetables some tomato here i'm gonna,put some,pickled cabbage that i made,on top as well i'm gonna use like a,little bit of this,again okay fail i was gonna put like a,tiny bit of this hummus so,like believe me when i say like,literally like,probably that much and then i'll mix,that around,i'm gonna put like a tiny little bit of,the soy sauce just like this,just to give it a little bit more flavor,and then i'm done,basically that's my salad and i've given,it flavor from,the vinegar juice and then also from a,lot of soy sauce and i'll put some,pepper on here as well,so here's the thing that's now,interesting if i was like,your regular kind of vegan instagrammer,i'm gonna put on probably half an,avocado,maybe a whole avocado i'm probably also,going to put on some hemp seeds,all right sprinkle them on there and,this is like a little tahini kind of,dressing that i made,this is only two tablespoons of tahini i,didn't even put any maple syrup,but if i was to add all of this,to this little salad right here how many,calories do you think i've added to the,salad,this would be about 150 calories,this is 300 calories this is about 100,calories,so you do the math that's over 500 extra,calories,with you're not even going to really,notice that so this is the power of,understanding that yeah sure this food,is healthy it's good for you,tahini is good for you hemp seeds is,good for your avocado is good for you,but if adding so much of this high high,calorie,low bulk food is actually stopping you,from losing weight,that's not healthy for you either so,that's why you need to look at your,meals and think,how can i actually create meals that are,low enough in calories that i'm able to,get into a calorie deficit and i'm,actually able to lose weight,so i hope that's helpful let me know if,that's helpful let me know

20 Foods That Have Almost 0 Calories

20 Foods That Have Almost 0 Calories

dieting so that you can burn fat from,stubborn areas like your belly love,handles and hips can be really,challenging because cutting your,calories can easily leave you feeling,deprived hungry and miserable but the,good news is that there are foods that,taste great and can help fill you up for,almost zero calories so today i want to,go over 20 of the best foods that fall,under this category starting first with,shirataki noodles these are actually,also referred to as konjac noodles or,miracle noodles and they're called,miracle noodles for a reason these,noodles are unique because they are very,filling yet very low in calories just an,8 ounce serving contains only about 20,calories meanwhile the same amount of,regular pasta could cost you as much as,300 calories on top of the fact that,shirataki noodles are low in calories,the calories come in the form of,insoluble fiber when you eat insoluble,fiber you end up taking in fewer,calories in the form of carbs compared,to other forms of carbohydrates like,soluble fiber and starches this is,because this type of fiber doesn't get,absorbed entirely to be exact you'll,only absorb about 1.5 calories per gram,of insoluble fiber compared to the four,grams that you would absorb if you were,eating a regular carbohydrate full of,starches or sugar instead so this means,that for an eight ounce serving of,shirataki noodles you'll effectively,only end up with a net intake of seven,and a half calories making these noodles,one of the best carbohydrates for,burning fat and one of the best weight,loss foods in general another,carbohydrate that's similar is slim rice,and it can be used as an alternative to,shirataki noodles it only contains about,seven to nine calories for every hundred,gram serving to put that into,perspective the same amount of brown,rice would cost you a little over 110,calories slim rice is also gluten free,and made from non-gmo konjac flour this,is the same ingredient that is used in,shirataki noodles but you can eat it in,rice form instead which might be more,suitable for certain meals and the good,news is that the texture and consistency,of this product is similar to regular,rice now since most veggies are also,very low in calories it might not be a,bad idea to try steaming some vegetables,and serving them along with slim rice,for an almost calorie free meal you,should know that there are also many,claims about konjac root having appetite,suppressing effects unfortunately more,studies are needed to confirm this but,if it does help suppress your appetite,on top of being really low in calories,then it could really help with fat loss,even more especially if you're finding,yourself hungry throughout the day next,we have the cucumber cucumbers are very,low in calories and very high in water,content which helps fill you up 97 of a,cucumber is made up of water and 100,gram serving of cucumber contains only,15 calories which makes it easy to add,cucumbers to your diet without bumping,up your caloric intake by much on top of,that research indicates that cucumbers,may help reduce and control blood sugar,levels which can help reduce hunger,cravings caused by irregular blood sugar,levels for weight loss purposes you,should eat the cucumber unpeeled because,it'll increase the amount of fiber,helping you feel full for longer and the,skin contains much of the vitamins and,minerals as well another very low,calorie food happens to be sugar-free,jello this tasty snack contains only 5,to 10 calories and can help you satisfy,your sweet tooth without skyrocketing,your caloric intake aside from the low,amount of calories it contains gelatin,which has been shown to help reduce,appetite and increase the feelings of,fullness there are also brands that,contain no preservatives at all and if,you buy the jello pouches you can easily,take them on the go with you wherever,you go,next we have zucchini and not only is,zucchini mostly made up of water but it,can be used to replace one of the,highest calorie carbs pasta all you need,is a spiralizer and you can very easily,crank out some zucchini noodles these,noodles can be used in many delicious,low calorie meals one simple option for,example is to cook them add salsa and a,little bit of parmesan cheese and there,are plenty of other low calorie options,like pesto zucchini pasta that'll blow,your mind zucchini contains only 17,calories per 100 grams meanwhile the,same amount of pasta contains 131,calories and it's much less filling on,top of all that just like cucumber,research indicates that zucchini might,help reduce and regulate blood sugar,levels which can be beneficial for,managing hunger cravings now going back,to cucumbers an alternative and for our,next food we have pickles a whole cup of,pickles only has 17 calories and one,medium-sized pickle contains only about,one gram of carbs since pickles are,fermented in brine they offer unique,flavor to your diet and there are,multiple flavors for example if you're,craving a sweet taste you ca

500 Calorie Alternate Day Fasting (with Recipe!)

500 Calorie Alternate Day Fasting (with Recipe!)

as the name implies alternate day fasts,are performed by alternating between,fasting and non-fasting days in the,purest sense of fast means that you,completely abstain from consuming,calories however there are modified,versions of alternate day routines that,allow you to consume about 500 calories,on your fasting days this modified way,of eating is growing in popularity,because it is doable and it produces,weight loss results in this video I will,share a hearty 500 calorie recipe that,is filled with Hunger satisfying,nutrients,Dr christopheriday is one of the leading,researchers on Alternate day fasting she,found that modifying the fasting Days by,allowing the consumption of 20 to 25,percent of your body's energy needs,which is typically simplified to 500,calories increases adherence without,sacrificing the health and weight loss,benefits the 5-2 diet that was,popularized by Dr Michael Mosley puts an,additional spin on this way of eating,his fast day protocol involves limiting,your calorie intake to 500 or 600,calories for two days of the week and,then eating as you normally would for,five days and those fasting day calories,can be spread out into smaller meals or,consumed in a single meal like I will be,showing you today now when you are,looking at this one meal a day way of,eating a 500 calorie meal is not a,tremendous amount of food however you,can make it feel bigger by combining,high volume low calorie vegetables with,foods that provide a good amount of fat,and protein this combination will digest,slowly So Hunger stays away longer it,will also keep your blood sugar level,steady which prevents hard to control,Cravings later in the day this Mexican,shredded beef bowl has those hunger,satisfying elements and I will mention,that I will be sharing the ingredients,and directions in this video but if you,would like to download the recipe you,can do so on my blog which I will point,you to the recipe serves four but the,downloadable version allows you to,reduce the servings if you want to,reduce leftovers now much of the fat and,protein in this meal comes from the,shredded beef that I prepared in a crock,pot I simply trimmed the excess fat off,of a bottom round roast seasoned it with,salt pepper and garlic powder and place,it in my slow cooker for eight hours,then I shredded the beef by pulling it,apart with two forks now this recipe,calls for one pound of meat I made a two,pound roast which you may want to do as,well the leftovers can be used in,another meal or Frozen for later and you,could also make this recipe with ground,beef if you don't want to make a roast,much of the volume of this meal comes,from cauliflower cauliflower is a,popular non-starchy vegetable with low,carb and keto dieters because it is so,versatile when finely chopped it has a,similar look and consistency to white,rice but has only a fraction of the,carbohydrates,cauliflower rice is also easy to season,with different spices which can add a,lot of flavor to a meal for our 500,calorie meal I am using cauliflower rice,seasoned with taco seasoning and because,of cauliflower Rice's popularity you can,find it pre-riced at stores like Costco,you can also find it in your grocery,store in the Frozen Foods area or the,produce aisle for this recipe I melted,two tablespoons of butter in a skillet,and then added one pound of Frozen,pre-riced cauliflower and a half a,packet of taco seasoning mix and cooked,it for about seven to ten minutes,depending on whether you are using fresh,or frozen rice and just a side note you,can make your own taco seasoning mix for,convenience in this video I am using a,packaged mix from the grocery store,just a note before you buy a seasoning,mix check the nutrition label many,people Overlook the fact that spices,come from plants and all plants contain,carbohydrates now in most of our cooking,we're not adding a lot of spices however,store-bought seasoning packets contain,many spices and possibly fillers so you,will want to pay attention to that if,you are following a low carb or keto,diet now a nice thing about this recipe,is that you can make all of the parts,the day before and then assemble the,meal when you are ready to eat for,instance if you're a modified fasting,day is Monday you can make the beef and,cauliflower rice on Sunday and store it,in the refrigerator you can also make,this spicy low carb sauce the day before,homemade sauces put you in control of,the ingredients and are simple to,prepare for this sauce I combined a,quarter cup of mayonnaise one teaspoon,of lemon juice one teaspoon of chili,pepper outer and half a teaspoon of,Dijon mustard in a small bowl and just,stir them together now remember that the,recipe that I'm describing serves for,but if we are looking at a serving we,see that we already have a hearty meal,with fat and protein to control hunger,yet these three elements the beef rice,and sauce only add up to 350 calories so,we have 150 more calories to add that,will allow us to add more hunger,satis

Eat Twice As Much, Keep Calories The Same (Eat These Instead)

Eat Twice As Much, Keep Calories The Same (Eat These Instead)

bacon trail mix,pasta turkey bacon,strawberries and this big thing,would you guess that each of these,portions contain 200 calories,probably not and as you can see this can,be a problem,when people first start out with a diet,they are totally unaware of just how,calorie dense typical food options that,they're used to eating really are,and this is one of the main reasons why,many who eat clean or work hard,still struggle with losing fat and,seeing results,this is kelly she is our lead dietitian,and i wanted her to share some of the,common problems that she finds working,with clients who are struggling to lose,fat,so most people think that when they go,to a dietitian,that we're going to change everything,that they eat and that's not,true part of our job is actually to,figure out,exactly what you enjoy eating and,then make a plan for actually how you,can incorporate it into your day,while still hitting your goal so one of,the biggest things that i found,with working with hundreds of our,clients is that,people make poor food choices this makes,it extremely difficult to not only,achieve a calorie deficit which is the,thing that you need to lose fat,but it also makes adhering to that,deficit even more challenging especially,when hunger and fatigue that's often,later in the diet,so to help you out with this in this,video we're going to showcase,what 200 calories looks like in the most,commonly reported,problem foods found from our team of,dietitians so you can see,just how easy it is to overeat with,these foods we'll then show you what 200,calories looks like with much better,options so,you can see visually just how much more,food you could be eating and calories,you could be saving,with the right swaps in place so we'll,start off by looking at some of the most,common problematic protein sources that,were reported from,clients of our dietitians we have ground,beef,pork chop bacon,and fattier cuts of steaks such as new,york strip,these protein sources are packed with a,ton of additional fat and hence bring up,their calorie counts quite a bit,you can see that for 200 calories you're,not getting much at all,and is what makes these meats very easy,to unknowingly overeat with,some better options would be to sub the,ground beef for something like extra,lean ground turkey,sub the pork chop for chicken breast sub,the bacon for turkey bacon,and just be mindful of how many calories,fatty or cuts of steak can quickly add,up to,in addition some other excellent leaner,protein options are egg whites and most,seafood like shrimp for example,which both bring in a ton more volume,for just 200 calories,you can see just how much more of these,leaner protein sources you'd be able to,eat for an equivalent amount of calories,and can definitely be made,just as tasty with the right seasoning,and cooking methods in place,next are carbs some of the most,problematic snacks that we found with,clients were foods like oreos,potato chips and cereal for 200 calories,you're either getting a few oreos or a,smaller serving of chips than you've,probably ever had in your life,or a very minuscule bowl of cereal when,used in moderation these foods are,perfectly fine but let's be honest when,you're snacking on these foods there is,no way that you're stopping at these,serving sizes which just goes to show,you,how quickly the calories can add up,without you being aware of it,not to mention that the impact that,these foods will have on your hunger,will be minimal,if anything they're just going to make,you even more hungry after eating them,in comparison here's what 200 calories,of strawberries look like,here's what 200 calories of carrots look,like here's what 200 calories of air,popped popcorn looks like,and here's what 200 calories of puff,wheats looks like you can see,just how much more volume you're getting,with these foods instead and why they're,much better options to actually keep you,satiated and prevent you from overeating,and yes while these swaps may be bland,on their own there's endless ways that,you can make these just,as satisfying if you just get creative,with it,which leads me to another big problem,food that most clients had trouble,giving up with,ice cream and i don't blame them it's,delicious but the calories they add up,very easily,for example here is what 200 calories of,ben and jerry's peanut butter cup ice,cream looks like,again this serving of ice cream is,likely smaller than any servant of ice,cream that you've ever had,in fact this right here which looks like,a normal serving that most people would,go for,amounts to about 750 calories,and with the whole tub which isn't very,much at all it'll amount to a whopping,1500 calories which for many,would almost be a full day's worth of,the required calories,instead a much better option that's my,personal go-to,and still actually satisfying would be,something like two servings of fat-free,greek yogurt sweetened with cinnamon and,a sugar-free sweetener,for 200 calories you're getting not on

I make this simple 500 Calorie Meal 3 times per Week

The 500 Calorie Cheeseburger Bowl

The 500 Calorie Cheeseburger Bowl

this 500 calorie cheeseburger bowl is a,nice alternative to a regular burger and,is super easy to make instead of using a,bun i will start with cooking rice i,will start with this step because the,rest of the recipe needs only a couple,of minutes so for one serving i will add,in 50 grams of basmati into a pot with a,pinch of salt and then i will add 125,grams of water now bring the water up to,a boil and then immediately switch the,heat down to low and let it simmer with,a lid on top for 12 to 15 minutes in the,meantime i will first make in my opinion,most important step and in sea sauce now,a regular burger sauce consists of 10,grams of ketchup 5 grams of mustard 10,grams of bananas salt pepper and 10 gram,of the water of pickles this is a super,easy and really delicious sauce the,problem is that because of the,mayonnaise it's super high in calories,mine is consisted of basically pure fat,and thus has 700 calories for 100 grams,of mayo so the 10 grams that are in this,sauce have already 70 calories if you,want to reduce that there are a couple,of options i tried to swap out my for,fat-free cream cheese i tried it with,skewer greek yogurt but actually in my,opinion best tasting option is with the,light miracle whip it doesn't like,sweetness like greek yogurt or cream,cheese and comes relatively close to the,taste of maya also i will add in,sugar-free ketchup that in my opinion,tastes pretty much the same as the,regular one so i would suggest you just,try healthy versions over time and,decide which one works best for you and,your caloric needs i will add in 10,grams of milk or whip for this version,and set the sauce aside next is the,burger meat and i have here 180 gram of,extra lean ground beef this has five,percent fat if you buy the regular,ground beef from the butcher shop you,will get the 80 20. it has doubled the,calories so keep an eye on the fret,content then i will also prepare a slice,of american cheese this is a 50 calorie,slice that will cut into small pieces,the last thing that will go into the,frying pan is a yellow onion it weighs,50 gram and i will dice it as well so,this will be fried in a minute but,before that i will also prepare some,vegetables to add on top later on i will,cut 30 grams of romaine lettuce into,smaller chunks and also dye some pickles,the entire cooking process requires only,4 minutes so i will start just before,the rice is almost done a touch of olive,oil goes into a pan on medium high heat,and then i will add in the ground beef,first i will try to loosen the meat with,my spatula by smashing it the more meat,gets in contact with the pan the more,browning can develop and the more,flavorful the beef will become i will,add a pinch of salt 10 cranks of black,pepper and also a teaspoon of msg msg is,really great in combination with beef it,enhances the flavor a lot i will fry,this now for 2 minutes just until the,bottom is color but the top side is,still raw now i'll add in the onion mix,everything with the spatula and cook,this again for 2 minutes so the onion,becomes translucent and start to,caramelize now we'll add in the cheese,and cover it with parts of the meat so,it melts a bit quicker what you can also,do is to add a bit of water and close,the lids the steam will help melt the,cheese in literally seconds by the way,this also works if you make extra,burgers and that's it four minutes later,i can assemble my bowl first i will add,rice as a bottom layer then i will add,the meat on top the vegetables will get,in the side and lastly i will add my,sauce,the entire recipe comes in with 538,calories 51 grams of carbs 11 grams of,fat and 50 grams of protein and is in my,opinion a cool alternative to an extra,burger click on this video to see how,you can make a 400 calorie chicken,sandwich and see you there

Calories Per Pound, Salad 100, Fruit 300, Potato 500, Rice 500, Beans 500, Ice Cream 1200, Bread

so the way it works with food is,essentially quite chloric density the,higher the Clerc density the more,dopamine is secreted in the brain the,better you like the food why was your,brain designed as a calorie detection,device think back to the world of our,ancient ancestors environment of,scarcity those that got enough to eat,survived those that didn't died it was,more valuable to be able to identify the,very very rich foods that were more,likely to get you through that scarcity,environment salad doesn't happen to be,one of them,salad has a hundred calories a pound how,many pounds of salad would you have to,eat a day to survive on salad about 20,pounds a day now if you start at 6:00 in,the morning and you don't stop eating,till midnight can you eat 20 pounds of,salad a day no you can't do it so your,brain is not stupid,so when your brain see salad it says oh,yeah salad great yeah I'll have some,salad too some more interesting food,comes along but it's not getting excited,about it because salad nutritious that,it is rich in fiber water vitamins,minerals doesn't have a lot of caloric,density so therefore it doesn't result,in a lot of dopamine stimulation on the,other hand fruit has straighter carries,around three times the court density so,fruit will taste better to people,because it has sugar but the sugar,stimulates more dopamine production so,higher chloric density potatoes rice and,beans at 500 calories a pound you only,need four pounds of those a day to,survive rather than 20 pounds of salad,so when you're hungry you're going to be,drawn to the more concentrated foods,totally makes sense what about if we,introduced a food that does not exist of,course in nature but had 1200 calories a,pound do you think people would like it,if we introduced it in the world's fair,do you think you would get rave reviews,and what if we called that food ice,cream if you take ice cream and you melt,it down to room temperature it's,described as sickly sweet,why is ice-cream sickly-sweet when it's,warmed up to room temperature but it,tastes so good when it's cold,what's it sucking sugar out of the,atmosphere no it's got the same amount,of sugar whether it's hot or cold but,you're not designed to detect things,well when something's frozen you've,never fallen in an ice cream pond this,doesn't exist in nature this wasn't part,of your evolutionary tree and as a,consequence to make ice cream perceived,as sweet and tasty they have to super,saturate it with sugar when you warm it,up it makes you sick it makes you just,as sick when it's cold you just don't,know it because your normal filtering,mechanism is being short-circuited by,this artificial presentation what about,a food with a higher caloric density,than ice cream do you think people would,like it and do you think they might even,call it the staff of life you ever seen,this stuff crusty on the outside all,soft on the inside,1,500 calories a pound before you turn,it into a butter boat melt coagulated,cow pus all over it have you ever been,into a restaurant and they have a basket,on the table yeah it's all covered over,you smell it in your brain goes ooh,1,500 calories a pound give it to me,what do you do you have a piece or two,or three don't you what do you notice,about the bread in the basket after a,while it's gone it's all gone and so,what do you do you spread that napkin,open get that naked basket and push it,right to the end of the table don't you,waiting for the waiter to come by to see,that you're out of bread pretty soon the,waiter comes along and says oh did you,want some more bread now first you have,to pretend like you didn't know it was,empty and you look over there oh yeah,sure why not what are you really,thinking this guy want a tip or not and,they bring you some more bread do you,ever go into the same restaurant say,excuse me waiter,I'd like three,large baked potatoes because I want to,eat those before I order my dinner,do you eat three large baked potatoes,before you order your dinner why don't,you eat three large baked potatoes,before you order your dinner be too full,because a human stomach is only big,enough that you put about three baked is,about 500 carats of potato it's going to,fill up the human stomach mechanically,full there wouldn't be any room left on,the other hand 500 calories of bread,only takes about a third of the stomach,because it's 3 times cork dancy about,500 1,500 hours a pound so what do you,think it's easier to get fat on sugar,pure sugar is 1800 calories a pound you,can take just about anything put enough,sugar on it people think it's good,Geoffrey go into that restaurant that,same restaurant and they have the sugar,on the table do you ever take 11 of,those packets and just why not it's free,the stuff is so cheap they don't even,charge for it why don't you have a lemon,pack it's a sugar before you start,perusing the menu have you ever had one,of those 12 ounce coke how many,teaspoons of sugar,so yeah leaven on an old one the new,stuff may

Are you spending too much time thinking about what to make for dinner?
