I want to lose about 5 pounds in 1 month.?

There is nothing embarrassing about telling your parents that you want to eat healthier, they would probably be thrilled! Eat lots of veg! Ditch the WHITE rice and the MARGARINE!!! Those are two things that are sooo bad for you. What are you eating at school?!? You need to be eating every 2-3 hours to keep your metabolism working.

You won't need to go on a full out diet especially at your age but try to make wiser choices eat more! Hard to believe for some but if you aren't eating a minimum of 1200 healthy foods your body goes into STARVATION mode and you gain weight not lose!

"Clean Eating" - eating healthy is the only way to loose weight and keep it off! Exercise, eat clean and you'll feel great and look amazing!

Start "Clean Eating", personally I find this to be the best plan since it's just eating "real" foods! I've been following Tosca's Cooler Plan and have seen great results with that, this might work for you too!

Read Tosca Reno's Clean Eating Recharged book. Here are "The Eat-Clean Principles" from page 21 of her "Recharged" book.

What To Do

-Eat More - eat six small meals each day.

-Eat Breakfast every day, within an hour of rising.

-Eat a combination lean protein and complex carbohydrates at each meal.

-Eat sufficient (two or three servings) healthy fats every day.

-Drink two or three liters of water each day.

-Carry a cooler packed with Clean foods each day.

-Depend on fresh fruits and vegetables for fiber, vitamins, nutrients and enzymes.

-Adhere to proper portion sizes.

What To Avoid

-Avoid all over-processed foods, particularly while flour and sugar.

-Avoid chemically charged foods.

-Avoid foods containing preservatives.

-Avoid artificial sweeteners.

-Avoid artificial foods (such as processed cheese slices).

-Avoid saturated and trans fats.

-Avoid sugar-loaded beverages, including colas and juices.

-Avoid (or do you best to limit) alcohol intake.

-Avoid all calorie-dense foods containing little or no nutritional value. I call these anti-foods.

-Avoid super-sizing your meals.

soft baked peaches - diced

small dices of ripe banana

small bits of ripe mango

dices of ripe pears

small dices of melon

small bits of avocado

squished blueberries

soft cooked pasta (ditalini or cut up rotini)

small bits of soft cheeses

small dices, shreds of soft cooked chicken, fish, beef or turkey

(mix with baby's favorite puree as a "sauce")

cereals such as Multi-Grain Cheerios or Oatie-Os

petite toast points with a fruit puree spread or thin cream cheese

scrambled egg yolks

Apple Turkey Loaf/Sticks:

Ingredients:

1 lb ground turkey

1 whole egg or 2 egg yolks, beaten

1/2 cup pureed carrots

1/4 cup applesauce

1/4 cup unprocessed natural wheat or oat bran

1/4 cup bread crumbs

pinch of basil

pinch of garlic powder

Directions:

Place ground turkey in a large mixing bowl.

Add the egg/yolk, carrots, applesauce, spices, bread crumbs and bran.

Mix well - If this mixture appears too dry, add more carrots or applesauce. If this mixture appears too wet, add more bran and/or bread crumbs

Place mix into a lightly oiled (olive oil) loaf pan and bBake at 350F for approx. 45 minutes or until an inserted knife comes out clean. **You may wish to cover with foil to prevent the top from burning

When finished baking and cooled, remove loaf from pan and slice as you would for bread. Break into small bits for finger feeding or Mash or chop gently

This recipe may also be made into "Turkey Sticks" for Toddlers and older babies who are able to handle more textured/chunky finger foods.

Variations could be cook the ground turkey separately, add the other ingredients and puree

Tofu Finger Cubes

Ingredients:

1 Package Firm Tofu (we love Nasoya)

Crushed/Powdered Cereal, Crackers, Granola or Wheat Germ

Directions:

Slice tofu into small cubes that are manageable for your baby.

Toss tofu in a Ziploc bag with crushed Cheerios, crushed graham crackers or crushed granola

Close bag and toss to thoroughly coat tofu cubes – serve as finger food for snack or as protein source at a meal.

Sweet Potato Fries

Ingredients:

6 medium to large sweet potatoes

Directions:

Scrub sweet potatoes, clean and/or peel them if baby cannot handle the skins

Preheat oven to 400degrees

Cut into sizes that will suit your needs or, cut into strips that you may then cut down after baking

In a large bowl, add about 1/4 cup of olive oil.

To this you may add cinnamon, ginger, a pinch of brown sugar, etc.. (I add cinnamon and sometimes a bit of brown sugar).

Toss the cut up sweet potatoes into the bowl and stir so that the potatoes are drenched with the olive oil mix.

Dump mixture onto a baking sheet and drizzle the remaining olive oil in the bowl over the potatoes on the baking sheet. Stir and swirl the potatoes on the baking sheet before placing in oven. Bake for approx 30-45minutes or until tender

The skins may become crispy but the actual potato "meat" will not. They will be a bit mushy like. These will not look or bake up like regular white potato French Fries so don't be alarmed!

This is the basic way to do it and you can improvise as much as you want

My cousin whos here also told me that dont be TO strict on salt or sugar or oil as babies do need this in thier diet, she sees what you are saying though but dont eleminate them completely just dont add them to the food.

good look,

michelle♥ and amiee(my cousin with the 7month old)
