Top tips for healthy cooking

Do you want to lose weight and still eat delicious food? Find out how with these healthy cooking tips.

Published 23/12/2010

When you follow the Slim.Fast® 3.2.1 Plan you can still enjoy healthy and delicious meals.

As part of the Slim.Fast® 3.2.1 Plan you should eat one meal every day of 600 calories for women and 800 calories for men. Follow these top tips to find out how you can create tasty, healthy meals.

1. Reduce fat

Use non-stick cookware and a small amount of oil when cooking to reduce the amount of fat in your diet.

2. Remove skin from meat

If you remove the skin from meats your calorie intake will be less. Trim away any visible fat on meat and poultry before cooking. To add flavour, marinate meat and chicken in lemon or lime juice or a low-fat sauce.

3. Avoid snacking when cooking

We know it can be tempting to snack when you are cooking. When you follow the Slim.Fast® 3.2.1 Plan you can have a maximum of three snacks every day. We recommend that you have fruit, vegetables or nuts, or choose from the range of Slim.Fast snacks, each with fewer than 100 calories.

4. Be experimental

When you are following the Slim.Fast® 3.2.1 Plan, try new ways of cooking your food to ensure you are eating a healthy, balanced meal every day. Roasting, grilling, baking, griddling and steaming are good alternatives to frying and will reduce the amount of oil required and calories consumed.

5. Enjoy a balanced meal

When you are following the Slim.Fast® 3.2.1 Plan you should have one meal every day containing 600 calories for women and 800 calories for men. To ensure this is a healthy, balanced meal it should be made up from one third vegetables, one third protein such as chicken or fish and one third starchy carbohydrates. So your plate should look like this:
