Use whole-grain wheat flour in place of some or all of the refined white flour you use when you bake. You will also gain more fiber with wheat flour, as well as higher nutritional content.
Breast feed after having a baby. Your body will burn an additional 500 to 800 calories each day to produce milk. These added calories can get you back to your pre-pregnancy weight much faster. Make sure to eat a healthy balanced diet though, as you will still need a greater calorie intake until you stop breastfeeding.

Green tea is also a rich source of catechins, an antioxidant which scientists believe could protect against heart disease and prevent the formation of blood clots.
You can help make fast food a little less damaging to your daily nutrition routine by leaving out the bacon when you order that burger. Instead of the bacon, order extra tomato. Tomatoes are a good source of fiber and contain good levels of vitamin A. A fresh tomato also offers a supply of potassium for good cell function.
