How to Eat
One important method for keeping your metabolism revved up is eating five small meals per day. For women, this means that each of the five meals you eat can only comprise about 350 calories. It can be challenging to produce a filling meal, particularly a dinner meal that contains only 350 calories. So keep in mind that the criteria for any recipes published on this web site are:
- The entire meal should contain 350 calories or less.
- It should be relatively simple to make.
- It shouldn't take more than 45 minutes to prepare (preferably less).

Other Recipe Ideas
Without using actual recipes, the meal ideas and ingredient suggestions below will help you to design an approach to creating quick satisfying meals. If you find something that seems to fit, and you don't know how to make it, just do a Yahoo or Google search to get a specific recipe.
Hopefully by now you have some ideas to get started. Don't be afraid to make mistakes; that's how you learn. Become more aware of what you're eating and what flavors appeal to you so that you can learn what to use when you're improvising. Keep trying new foods, new meals, and different ways of cooking. Each time you find a great meal, don't forget to repeat it often so it becomes a real habit.
You also may want to subscribe to a cooking magazine, such as Cooking Light or Eating Well. That way each month (or every other month) you will have the opportunity to look at some new ideas, complete with photographs to help spice up your imagination.
There are, of course, cookbooks that provide low calorie recipes. If you have access to a computer, you can find listings for hundreds, if not thousands. Use Amazon or any search engine to find something that fits your fancy.
Better yet, if you have access to a computer, there is no need to purchase any cookbooks, instead get your recipes online through the same type of search.
For example, let's say you've just purchased a yellow squash for the first time and you would like to find a recipe that has ingredients that appeal to you. Just go to www.google.com and type in yellow squash. The first listing you will see is cooks.com, click on that, and you will be confronted with over 2000 recipes for yellow squash. Scroll through those recipes until you find one that has most of the ingredients that you like, print it out and try it. Don't like it? Try another. The computer is a wonderful source of recipes for just about anything.
I hope I've given you some incentive to venture out and try new foods and new ways to cook foods you're already familiar with. Being creative can be fun, but also extremely useful for helping you to succeed in your healthy eating endeavor. Be bold, be daring, be adventuresome, be healthy!
