The Skinny Rules

Bob Harper from the hit NBC show The Biggest Loser has recently written a cookbook called The Skinny Rules: The Simple, Nonnegotiable Principles for Getting to Thin.  In this book, he talks about the importance of reading food labels and eating the correct portion sizes.  Harper says it’s also important to make at least 10 meals at home every week.

What’s in

  • Lots of water at each meal; a real breakfast, such as oatmeal, eggs or plain Greek yogurt, doctored up with berries and nuts; apples and berries every day, along with other fibrous fruits such as Asian pears, in certain quantities; protein at every meal and lots of fiber; and unlimited amounts of certain vegetables-though they must be prepared correctly (favorites are kale and broccoli)

What’s important

  • Learn to read food labels; stop guessing about portion sizes; have a meatless day each week; make at least 10 meals a week at home; cut off eating three hours before bed; sleep right; and, thankfully, allow yourself a splurge meal once a week.

Luckily, freschef meals already contain correct portion sizes for your body and are nutritionally balanced.  Spend less time counting calories and more time enjoying your meals, while achieving your heath goals.
