  • 15 Best Recipes to Loose Weight

    Are you trying to loose a few pounds in the fall? Wish you could eat healthier foods that still taste amazing? Men's Health Magazine is full of useful article on getting into shape, especially recipes that are not only healthy for you, but still taste good too. Here are some meals that will help you loose weight.

    Chinese Chicken Salad

    Chinese chicken salad is one of the world's ultimate fusion foods. It's an Eastern-inspired dish popularized by an Austrian chef (Wolfgang Puck) in Beverly Hills (at his restaurant Spago back in the 1980s). Whatever its disparate origins, it's undeniably one of the most popular--and ubiquitous--salads in America, sharing space on menus in four-star restaurants and Wendy's alike. Too bad most versions are nutritional disasters, bogged down by too much dressing and too many fried noodles. This lighter version is true to Wolfgang's original inspiration but with about a third of the calories.

    Grilled Chicken with Pineapple Sandwich

    Not even the relatively healthy genre of grilled chicken sandwiches is a safe bet when you seek sustenance away from home. That's because places like Outback go long on the oil and the dressing, gobbling up (in this case) half you day's saturated fat and sodium. Our sandwich is a spicy-sweet combination of teriyaki-glazed chicken, juicy grilled pineapple, and fiery jalapenos--a chicken sandwich to end all fatty chicken sandwiches.

    Grilled Pork and Peaches

    Restaurant pork chops are usually Flintstonian in size and skirted with enough fat to keep a bear warm in the winter. The result (as witnessed below with the Romano's chop): 196 percent of your day's saturated fat, plus more sodium than you'd find in 36 cups of salted popcorn. Our dish takes its cue from classic pork chops and applesauce, using grilled fruit and blue cheese to punch up the flavor without skyrocketing the calorie count.
