Popular Australian nutritionist Paula Norris has revealed the secret of how to lose weight quickly without having to necessarily reduce the size of portions. According to the expert, for successful weight loss, you just need to replace some of the ingredients with a lower-calorie alternative. For example, natural yogurt without additives can be an alternative to sour cream. “The benefits are more than obvious - 50 grams of yogurt contains only 30 kilocalories - this is 5,6 times less than exactly the same amount of sour cream,” said Norris. She also advised to completely eliminate mayonnaise, which most of us are used to adding to salads. Alternatively, you can make a mixture that consists of two tablespoons of yogurt and one spoonful of Dijon mustard. One tablespoon of lemon juice, salt and pepper will complement the overall flavor of homemade mayonnaise. The calorie content of regular mayonnaise and homemade mayonnaise will vary greatly. 2,5 tablespoons of mayonnaise will equal 206 kilocalories, while the mixture you made yourself contains only 25 kilocalories, according to the Daily Mail.
According to Norris, it is possible to replace cheddar with parmesan. Parmesan tastes brighter. 40 grams of cheddar is easily replaced by 20 grams of Parmesan, which saves 45 calories at once.
Colleagues of the nutritionist from the Association of Cardiology are sure that it is not so much about sauces as about vegetables. Eating five servings of fruits and vegetables daily, namely two servings of fruits and three servings of vegetables, is a true "formula for longevity."
