Portobello Mushroom Burgers
The meaty-textured Portobello mushroom is the perfect stand-in for a hamburger. One Portobello mushroom has about 30 calories and no fat or cholesterol. By comparison, a 3-ounce hamburger patty has 235 calories, 16 grams of fat and 76 milligrams of cholesterol.

Healthy Weight Loss Tips
Tip 1: Eat at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables per day
Fruits and vegetables are packed with beneficial fibers, vitamins and antioxidants. They fill up your stomach fast so you feel full earlier. They are also low in calories and help to keep your calorie count low.
Tip 2: Watch for Portion Size
One serving of pasta means 1/2 cup of cooked pasta. However, most restaurants serve a pasta dish with 4 servings of pasta!!! You do not need to finish and clean off the plate every time. You can simply ask to take home the leftover.
Tip 3: Do not Skip Meals
Eating small frequent meals help to balance your calorie intake throughout the day and also keep your blood sugar level balanced. Instead of eating 3 big meals, try to eat 5 – 6 smaller meals throughout the day.
Is Colon Cleansing Necessary For Weight Loss?
While in the strictest sense of the word, colon cleansing isn’t really ‘necessary’ for weight loss, it does significantly improve the results. You can lose weight by diet and/or exercising but there are a number of issues that colon cleansing in relation to a weight loss regimen can correct.
The first problem that dieters encounter when trying to lose weight is that they often feel overly fatigued. This is usually the result of the fact that calories have been reduced and the digestive tract isn’t operating optimally. Sufficient nutrients aren’t making it through the walls of the intestines to fuel metabolism and this leaves you feeling sluggish and tired. Sugar is usually converted to glucose quite quickly and that provided energy, but as you cut back in calories your body needs to digest foods to pull sugar from the carbs you are eating. If digestion suffers, your body won’t be able to easily break down those carbs and energy suffers as a consequence.
Then there comes a point where you just stop losing weight. It seems like you have lost everything but that bloated stomach. Again, this is because of improper digestion and literally pounds of waste sitting there clogging up your intestines. A good colon cleansing product like New Colon Sweep can effectively flush that waste out so that you will be able to finally lose those pounds around the abdomen.
So even though you can lose weight without cleansing the colon, it just makes more sense to do it efficiently so that the weight comes off quickly and regularly right through to your target weight. If you are going to really do something about weight loss, you might as well do it right.
