Low Fat Recipes to Lose Weight

There are many diets on the market that claim to shed pounds without any exercise. This is not a healthy way to diet, nor is there any diet that will work without exercise. However, if you are tired of dieting without results, it may be time to revamp your everyday food intake. Here are a few low fat recipes to help you lose weight naturally.

Filling Chicken Bake

You will need 2 boxes of chicken stuffing, a can of cream of chicken soup, 2 egg whites, 2 chicken breasts, a pat of butter substitute, 1 bag of egg noodles and 2 cans of chicken broth. First grill your chicken breasts and then cut into bite sized pieces. Add the egg whites, chicken broth and cream of chicken soup to a baking pan. Mix these together well. Cook the two boxes of chicken flavored stuffing by following the directions on the box. Add the chicken breast pieces into the mixture in the baking pan along with the egg noodles and butter pat and mix well. Spoon the stuffing over the top of the entire pan and spread out evenly so that the entire mixture is covered. Bake at 425 for 30 minutes and allow to cool before serving.

Many low fat recipes to lose weight don’t allow for any trading of ingredients, but the above creation allows for you to substitute egg whites for egg beaters, chicken noodle soup for the egg noodles and chicken broth and even regular butter for the butter substitute. You can change the cream of chicken soup to any cream style soup as well.

Low fat recipes for weight loss abound on the internet. Here is another tasty recipe to try out:

You will need ten ounces of frozen spinach, 1 jar of spaghetti sauce, one egg, a bag of low fat mozzarella cheese, a box of manicotti shells, 16 ounces of fat free ricotta cheese and a tablespoon of parmesan cheese. Boil the manicotti noodles to your desired tenderness. Mix the ricotta cheese and desired spices together with an egg and add half a cup of the mozzarella cheese and the parmesan cheese together in a bowl. Defrost the spinach and then squeeze out all liquid. Add the spinach to the cheese mixture and then blend all other cheese based ingredients together. Using a spoon, stuff the manicotti shells with the mixture and lay in the bottom of a baking dish. Add spaghetti sauce over the top of the shells and place in the oven at 350 degrees for half an hour. Remove from oven and immediately place half a cup of mozzarella over the top of each shell and allow to sit for 10 minutes before serving.

You can substitute freshly diced tomatoes for the spaghetti sauce to avoid additional salt, as well as using wheat manicotti shells to bring down the calories. Low fat recipes to lose weight do not have to taste bad, as you can see. Simply avoiding calorie stuffed, fat laden foods will help your body to not store fat eaten, and will cause the body to use the fat storage already present.
